Sweden's Support for Palestine Brings Israel Backlash

Media reports indicate today that Israel said “Sweden's foreign minister was not welcome for an official visit in the country.” In October, Sweden decided to recognize the State of Palestine. So Israel told the minister, Margot Wallstroem, not to come.

A spokesman for Israel reportedly told Swedish media, "Do not wait to travel to Israel until the Swedish foreign minister comes here, because that could take a long time," Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon told public broadcaster Swedish Radio.

Clarity in thoughts, language, and action are positives. Good for Israel. Ze’ev Jabotinsky the Zionist ideologue whom is considered the forefather of the ruling Likud Party wrote an article in 1911, entitled “Go to Hell!” which clearly – with these actions – is remembered in Israel. “Instead of excessive apology and instead of turning our backs to the accusers — as there is nothing to apologize for, and nobody to apologize to — it is long overdue to respond to all current and future accusations, reproaches, suspicions, slanders and denunciations by simply folding our arms and loudly, clearly, coldly and calmly answer,'Go to Hell!'

"Who are we, to make excuses to them; who are they to interrogate us? What is the purpose of this mock trial over the entire people where the sentence is known in advance? Our habit of constantly and zealously answering to any rabble has already done us a lot of harm and will do much more. The situation that has been created as a result, tragically confirms a well known saying: 'Qui s’excuse s’accuse' (He who apologizes condemns himself).

"We think that our constant readiness to undergo a search without hesitation and to turn out our pockets will eventually convince mankind of our nobility; look what gentlemen we are–we do not have anything to hide! This is a terrible mistake. The real gentlemen are the people that will not allow anyone for any reason to search their apartments, their pockets or their souls. Only a person under surveillance is ready for a search at every moment. This is the only inevitable conclusion from our maniacal reaction to every reproach, to accept responsibility as a people for every action of a Jew, and to make excuses in front of everybody.

"I consider this system to be false at its very root. We are hated not because we are blamed for everything, but we are blamed for everything because we are not loved. We do not have to apologize for anything. We are a people as all other peoples; we do not have any intentions to be better than the rest. We do not have to account to anybody; we are not to sit for anybody’s examination and nobody is old enough to call on us to answer. We came before them. We are what we are, we are good for ourselves, we will not change and we do not want to."

France tells Israel to not attend a march against terrorism – silly, and good for Prime Minister Netanyahu to stand there. Similarly too, if Sweden wants to stand against Israel, they can go to hell.
