The fate of Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Jews during the Holocaust and then mysteriously disappeared, has come to light through the diaries of Ivan Serov, the first head of the notorious Soviet KGB.
Sweden’s Housing Minister Mehmet Kaplan has been involved in anti-Israel activity in the past. In 2010, he participated in the Turkish-flagged flotilla to the Gaza Strip. When he attempted to land in Israel a few months later, he was denied entry over the incident.
In response to Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom's recent misguided remarks about Israel, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely declared that Swedish officials are no longer welcome to visit Israel. Jerusalem is, however, maintaining low-key ties with Stockholm.
In a seemingly endless string of offensive and biased statements, Wallstrom again accused Israel of extrajudicial killings of Palestinian terrorists and called for an international probe. Israel’s Foreign Ministry strongly rejected the allegations, calling her accusations “irresponsible and delusional.”
Incredibly, just a day after Prime Minister Netanyahu complained to Sweden's Prime Minister Stefan Lofven over ignorant remarks made by Sweden's foreign minister, Lofven claimed that Palestinian stabbing attacks do not constitute "terrorism."
