Swedish hostility toward Israel is becoming anti-Semitic

In one city, 52 of the 115 hate crimes recorded last year were aimed at Jews or Jewish institutions.

Last month, firecrackers were thrown at the only synagogue in the Swedish city of Malmo, breaking three windows. The day before, a bomb threat had been left at the building, warning of what was about to happen. Two weeks previously, another attack was launched against the same synagogue.

For months, local Jews have testified to an increasingly hostile atmosphere, with many saying they are frightened to go out on the streets wearing anything that might identify them as Jews.

    The more I hear of these acts, and the world’s hostility over settlements and Jerusalem the more Joel 3 seems to speak to our generation. First time in history where the whole world has divided Judean land.

    The Messiah is soon to stand up.

    Is it any wonder that when the world declares that they want peace today that there will be no peace until the Lord returns. The Bible prophesies that the world will grow darker but those in Christ
    will know that the Lord returns quickly for those whose faith is found in Jesus Christ. He promised that He will return as a Warrior this time to defeat the enemy – Satan – once and for all! This is a battle of spiritual wickedness in High places. Ephesians 6: 11-17.
    “Vengeance is mine” saith the Lord.
    Amen and Amen! God bless Israel.

    There is little question that Antisemitic sentiment will continue and grow worse as the end of this age approaches. Only a fool and his horse would in any way contemplate peace with another people who have without qualification stated their sole desire is the annihilation of the state of Israel and the Jewish people respectively.. Still all has been prophesied in the Bible…

    While I find the latest developments of anti-semitism alarming and abhorrent, I’m not surprised. Man’s inhumanity to man is nothing new and it will probably get worse. I pray for the people of Israel and can’t wait until the day of our long awaited Messiah. Blessings to Israel. My Prayers are with you all.

Rabbi's Commentary
Clarity in a Confused World

In response to this week’s horrific terrorist attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded with a voice of moral clarity. We, as people of faith and conscience, must all cling to such clarity in a world so often ruled by moral confusion.
