1. "Probably 'derailed prank' "
Mira ,   Vienna   (03.07.13)
the Swedes certainly have a derailed brain and morals!
2. One has to be a brain-washed Swede to state that!

3. "A derailed prank"?!!!
AM Yisrael Chai ,   Leeds, UK   (03.07.13)
More a description of 21st Century Sweden than of this obviously Jew-hatred motivated attack. Who is this apologist for Islamofascism trying to kid?
4. Sweeden is the most brainwashed country in Europe
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (03.07.13)
they have brainwashed themselves so thoroughly that they can no longer decern reality even at close range. the sweedes want to pretend that muslims are not a threat to them, their culture or way of life.
5. The arab takeover continues

7. Who write this stuff?
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (03.07.13)
The "... incident raised concerns about an anti-Semitic motive in a city where some Jews say they have been harassed by Arab immigrants." "Some Jews say"? Because of course there is no evidence, just "some Jews say". Those nasty Jews. From an article written in 2010: "In 2009, a chapel serving the city's 700-strong Jewish community was set ablaze. Jewish cemeteries were repeatedly desecrated, worshippers were abused on their way home from prayer, and "Hitler" was mockingly chanted in the streets by masked men" "Hate crimes, mainly directed against Jews, doubled last year with Malmo's police recording 79 incidents and admitting that far more probably went unreported. " "The city's synagogue has guards and rocket-proof glass in the windows, while the Jewish kindergarten can only be reached through thick steel security doors"
8. If throw rocks and a firecracker at Muslim Cultural Centre
is it also a "PRANK?

10. Nr 1-6. I fully agre !,
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (03.07.13)
11. Oh sure....
RK ,   US   (03.07.13)
this was absolutely NOT a hate crime and Swedish cuisine is so much better than Italian, French, and Chinese cuisine.
12. What do you expect from Sweden?
k ,   US   (03.07.13)
didn't they ally wth the Nazis or do all they can to stay out of that conflict This is the same thing, just trying to stay out of it, they know siding with the Jews is a battle not worth fighting
13. Prank for prank. Drop investigations in Israel.
Miron ,   USA   (03.08.13)
14. Malamo, Sweden
Anshel ,   Canada   (03.08.13)
This kind of response by the Swedish authorities is not acceptable. Jews, non-Jews, should not only went frustration by complaining in their comments, should "bombard" the Swedish authorities (the Mayor of Malmo, the Swedish Prime Minister, Interior Minister, the Ambassadors, the UN Ambassador, the EU parliamentarians, etc) by e-mails, faxes, letters, blogs, social media, day and night. The addresses are usually posted on the Internet. I wrote few e-mail myself, probably not enough, however if 10's of thousand of protest letters will be arriving, Swedes may think twice about ignoring the "problem". Let's help our brethren in Malmo!
15. Double standard
European Christian   (03.08.13)
If the victim is a muslim - then it is always a hate crime - but when the victim is not a muslim - then it is not a hate crime either. Actually muslims are totally innocent - they cannot even commit hate crimes! And if they do something that is not that "nice" - it is always someone else to blame! In Sweden - and also many other European countries!
16. #8
Intedi Nensak ,   Stockholm, Sweden   (03.08.13)
No, then they usually say it's islamophobic or whatever (and it happens often), in the end it doesn't matter though since they don't make any effort at all in finding the one who did it no matter if it's a synagogue or a mosque. We have Europe's worst police force that solve almost no crimes. Mostly that's because of silly political decisions and budget cuts leaving the police almost entirely useless.
17. They are very confused
Carl ,   USA   (03.09.13)
"The perpetrators could not be identified." It was "a group of friends seeking attention." Hey Swedes, you either know or you don't know - can't be both at the same time! And you certainly can't ascribe a motive for actions by people you can't even identify!
