    And this is an "attack" against the state of Israel and not against Jews.. What is the difference? Is Israel suddenly a "race".. are Jews suddenly a "race"?

    What is the difference between the cartoons and this opinion piece? It is offensive to either Muslims or the state of Israel and in both cases the relevant governments refused to condemn or "punish" the newspaper due to freedom of the press.. and that is somehow wrong?

    And even worse.. if it was not wrong in the Cartoon case to defend freedom of the press by the Government.. why is now wrong in the Swedish case?

    Yeah, and how is that a "no"?
    I said that you believe there might be any truth to this.
    This is the same as saying that you believe it might be true, that you take it as a possibility.
    And I said nothing of the sort. I said I had HEARD, as in hearing with you ears, .. a rumour about 10 years ago. That is a huge difference. Hearing something does not mean I believe in what I hear.. far from it. I have heard many rumours about what Israel does and I dont believe in any of them before there is credible evidence. This goes for both sides in the conflict. I dont trust any of them further than I can throw them.

    You obviously said:

    "so either he hit a raw nerve and it is somewhat true, or Israel has different beef with Sweden that we are not aware of at the moment."

    You gave it as a possibility.
    Of course it is a possibility, however far out it is..it is also a possibility that aliens did it, that the Palestinians did it to make the Israeli's look bad, that the CIA did it, that the FSB did it.. that the Swedes did it!... but all these are as far out as the IDF doing it. It does also not mean that it is true or that I have that opinion that it is. All I am doing here in this segment is speculating on why the heck the state of Israel is reacting so to this insignificant opinion piece. It is out of character basically for the State of Israel to react so. I have read critical articles about Israel in many newspapers and seen it on TV, claiming everything from torture to killing civilians, and I have yet to see Israel reacting in such a way against said newspapers. Hell considering the exposes the BBC and ITV have done over the years being critical of Israel, I have yet to see the Israeli government make an international issue out of it.

    There was no reason for you to think that I called you an anti-semite, and I did not.
    If you somehow got the impression that I did, I apologize.

    My location was visible on this forum from my day 1 in here.
    Ahh I missed that! My bad. Explains your passion on the subject think i need a bigger screen, small text out there!

    My proof that I was speaking of Europe is that you're not over 70 years old.
    So a miss print.... I ask you to prove your accusation.. I aint denying that there are racists in Europe or there are anti-Semites.. far from it.. but you are implying there are "more" somehow in Europe than anywhere else.

    If Europe didn't want it to be pointed out it shouldn't have done this.
    And the same goes for everyone else.. and it was Germany that did it, not Europe.

    Even if the story were true, it is one isolated case so there is no merit to assume that either;

    a) All Isrealis are evil organ harvesting Arab haters

    or

    b) All Palestinians are liars that want down with the evil Zionist machine.
    and so it goes...
