Karlsson proves that the city council of Malmö that Reepalu heads, had been informed about the rise of antisemitism on repeated occasions, beginning with a motion submitted by Karlsson in January of 2008, November of 2009 and as recently as this January of 2010. Reepalu was seated in a meeting where the SD representative brought the matter up. This exposes Reepalu not only as a liar, but also as a totally unreliable politician that cannot be trusted to seriously address the growing problem of antisemitism in his city. KGS
Motion filed in January 2008:
After a long period of having maintained a relatively secluded life, it seems that anti-Semitism in Sweden again be on the march, which, inter alia manifested itself in attacks on synagogues, harassment and violence against individual Jews and a growing threat against Jewish institutions.The polarization and ethnic divisions, which followed in the wake of mass immigration, have created new, young recruits to the neo-Nazi organizations and in the extreme left organizations, seems that criticism of Israeli policy increasingly turns into anti-Semitism.Several reports, including the Forum for Living History and Crime Prevention Council, shows however that the new anti-Semitism has its stronghold among Arab and Muslim immigrant communities and that the anti-Semitic tendencies show themselves at a young age.The report “The denied hatred”, developed by the Swedish Committee Against Antisemitism, teachers testify, inter alia, from Malmö, the recurring problems in schools, which mainly Arab and Muslim students refuse to attend lectures on Judaism and the Holocaust, points out that Adolf Hitler a model or completely deny that the Holocaust of European Jews took place.The report also shows that, for the anti-Semitic incidents which could involve the offender to a particular group, so is the Muslim group is almost twice as many as the right and left extremist groups together. Nearly all teachers who were confronted with anti-Semitic manifestations also testifies to the lack of knowledge about the issue and that the behavior from the management of the schools left much to be desired.If it is true that anti-Semitism is more widespread among Muslim immigrant communities, it is imperative to precisely Malmö, a city with a very high proportion of residents from these groups, as soon as possible attention and acknowledge the problem.Regardless of the origin of the hatred, Malmö municipality must improve their knowledge and then take steps to prevent anti-Semitism may be increasing foothold in our city.In light of the above, the Sweden Democrats City Council to decide:to instruct the municipal council to come back with proposals for an inquiry to be filled in order to identify the nature and extent of anti-Semitism among Malmö’s schoolchildren and to propose appropriate measures to combat these heinous ideas.
At the council meeting in August 2008 dealt with a motion from the Sweden Democrats about to conduct a survey of anti-Semitism scale and nature of Malmö’s schools. The purpose of the survey would be to find more effective strategies to combat anti-Semitism. As the basis for the motion was a report from the Swedish Committee Against Anti-Semitism, where school personnel including Malmo testified on a major anti-Semitism among certain groups of students.
Other reports include Crime Prevention Council and the Living History Forum told to Malmo, by its demographic composition, could be at high risk of suffering substantial anti-Semitism.
The response from left-wing majority and Agneta Eriksson was then no further measures were needed and that there are already existing, public values the work was quite enough.
During the recent period, the Jewish minority in Malmo suffered a series of attacks by anti-Semitic overtones. The situation has now gone so far as Jewish youth consciously begin to hide all links with their origin in order not to suffer assault.
In view of these recent events, I would like to ask the school alderman Agneta Eriksson:
-Do you Maintain your previous view that no further action need be taken to curb anti-Semitism among the young in Malmö?
Simple question to the Mayor Illmar Reepalu on the left majority strategy to meet the growing anti-Semitism
Simple question raised 2010-01-26:
At the council meeting in August 2008 dealt with a motion from the Sweden Democrats about to conduct a survey of anti-Semitism scale and nature of Malmö’s schools. The purpose of the survey would be to find more effective strategies to combat anti-Semitism.As the basis for the motion was a report from the Swedish Committee Against Anti-Semitism, where school personnel including Malmo testified on a major anti-Semitism among certain groups of students. Other reports include Crime Prevention Council and the Living History Forum told to Malmo, by its demographic composition, could be at high risk of suffering substantial anti-Semitism.
The response from left-wing majority was then, and later, when we asked a simple question in response to a series of attacks on Jewish buildings and meetings, that no new measures were needed and that there are already existing, public values the work was quite enough.
Since the last issue was discussed in City Council, several media reported that the situation deteriorated further and has now become so serious that Malmö’s Jews, particularly families with children, are increasingly choosing to flee the city. According to Skanska Dagbladet 2010-01-25 Police say that hate crimes against Jews in Malmoe has doubled in the past year.
In view of the above, I would like to ask the Mayor Illmar Reepalu:
– Are you satisfied with the majority left strategy so far to meet the rise in anti-Semitism?
