Israel should formalize relations with Ladonia in place of Sweden’s.

Sweden’s interest in rubbing elbows with Islamonazis whose goals is the destruction of the Jewish state, isn’t mutually shared with Israel. So again, to show how unserious the Swedish government is, in maintaining relations with the Jewish state, Jerusalem should trade embassies with Ladonia, and close its office in Stockholm.

The Swedish government announced on Thursday that it was officially recognizing the State of Palestine, less than a month after the new Prime Minister Stefan Löfven first raised the issue while introducing his cabinet.
Later in the day, Israeli ambassador Isaac Bachman was called home.
“This indeed reflects our irritation and annoyance at this unhelpful decision, which does not contribute to a return to (peace) negotiations,” Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon told the AFP news agency.

“We knew that Israel would be critical when we made this decision. I respect that criticism, even though I don’t share it,” Margot Wallström told The Local.
“It can happen that ambassadors are called home for consultations – that’s part of diplomatic business.”
“I’m convinced that we have mutual interests to uphold and strengthen our good bilateral relations.”
Thursday’s announcement meant that Sweden became the first EU member in western Europe to recognize Palestine as a state.
Israel’s top diplomat described the decision as “deplorable”.
