Sweden: 20 masked men attack synagogue with petrol bombs
A SYNAGOGUE was attacked by around 20 masked men while hosting a youth party in Gothenburg, Sweden, local media have reported.
Police arrived at the scene, where Jewish students had taken refuge in the basement.
A police spokesman said: “There are several molotov cocktails that have been thrown against the synagogue.
“It’s about bottles and gasoline.”
A fire broke out between vehicles in the car park, fire fighter Kristoffer Wahter told local news.
Tonight’s synagogue firebombing and last night’s chants about shooting J..s didn’t take place in a vacuum. Swedish J..s have been living in what has been described as a “climate of fear” for years.
Last night in London and Berlin, protesters called for war against J..s. In Vienna, witnesses reported antisemitic chants and imagery. This is a European problem.
