The unholy trinity

2010 is election year in Sweden. In power today is an alliance consisting of the Conservatives, Liberals, Centre Party and Christian Democrats.

That is something that Sweden’s communists (recently rebranded the Left Party), the extreme-left Social Democrats and ultra-left Greens want to change.

On February 17 three of these three parties’ leading lights – Urban Ahlin, Hans Linde and Per Gahrton – put forward their intended coalition’s manifesto should Sweden turn red this September.

The manifesto has one item in particular focus: the Middle East.

The headline of the trio’s article – published in Aftonbladet, the tabloid that brought the world the unresearched, unproven, refuted and subsequently withdrawn allegations of Jewish and Israeli plundering of Arab organs for profit – reads “Red-Green Collaboration for a free Palestine.”

The Communist/Left Party component of this unholy trinity demands that Swedish troops be withdrawn from Afghanistan. That is a conflict that does not concern Sweden, according to the strategists outlining the foreign policy of a possible future Swedish government. In fact, renowned extremist Jan Myrdal (read here a Hizbollah interview with him reported in Sweden’s Radio Islam, whose proprietor has served a jail sentence for anti-Semitic sedition) said after two Swedish soldiers were killed in Afghanistan that “the only good foreign soldier on Afghan soil is a dead one”.
 
However, the Red-Green Collaboration does want Swedish troops to be sent to “Palestine”. Not to shield Israeli civilians from Hamas rocket attacks on Sderot’s schools, or to protect Israelis from Hizbollah rocket attacks on Haifa hospitals, or to prevent Fatah from murdering an Israeli father of seven in Judea and Samaria/the West Bank, but to prevent Israel from responding to attacks from these organizations. For an up-to-date assessment about Fatah by analyst Caroline Glick, read her article entitled "The Fatah Fairy Tale".
 
Hamas openly maintains that it will never recognize Israel. The collaborators in Sweden’s left-wing parties that want to take over the reins of power this September have no problem with this position, signally failing to register their protest at this intransigence. It is not a new stance – Hamas always have and still continue to maintain this position.
 
Interestingly, the Red-Green Collaboration not comment on the fact that Hamas is so uninterested in compromising its strict interpretation of what the future holds in store that it is even targeting the Palme Centre (link in Swedish only). The Palme Centre is a sometimes rather shadowy Swedish NGO dedicated to legitimising Palestinian radicalism and delegitimising the Jewish state – using Swedish state funding for the purpose. Read the following article to find out more about Sweden’s involvement with shadowy, non-transparent NGOs - it contains a wealth of relevant links.
 
Furthermore, the trio of left-wing politicians do not deal with the illegal aspect of any links with Hamas, classified by the UN as a terrorist organisation. The Red-Green Collaboration support breaking the law in order to pursue their agenda of a second Palestinian state alongside Jordan, at the expense of Israel.
 
Return to Afghanistan: the Red-Green Collaboration say that should they come into power, they will cease all military cooperation with Israel. This includes the purchase, leasing and/or usage of such Israeli military hardware as airborne drones to monitor Taliban operations in Afghanistan. Despite the fact that, a few days ago, two Swedish servicemen were killed in a Taliban operation in Afghanistan. The Red-Green Collaboration maintain their highly principled stance – no defence contacts with Israel even if it means saving Swedish lives. That is something the Swedish public – which is staunchly behind the nation’s contribution to Afghanistan’s future and development – may wish to take note of.

The principles of the Red-Green Collaboration also prevent contacts between the Swedish intelligence service and its Israeli counterpart. Bearing in mind that Sweden is a safe-haven for and an increasingly front-line participator in the drive to radicalise and recruit jihadi Islamists for terror operations abroad, this is again something that the Swedish public may want to note. Not least because failure to cooperate on intelligence issues promotes increasingly unrestricted radicalization on the domestic scene in Sweden, particularly in the southern city of Malmö, whose mayor Ilmar Reepalu has made himself a name as a radical support of Islamism and a vocal critic of Swedish Jews.

On the subject of the creation of a second Palestinian Arab state alongside Jordan – where 70 percent of the population is Palestinian Arab and where the state has moved to revoke Jordanian citizenship from Palestinian Arabs – the Red-Green Collaboration demands that a first step be the dismantling of the security barrier constructed by Israel to stop Palestinian Arab suicide bombings and other terrorist attacks. However, the trio make no mention of the need to stop the Palestinian Arab terror attacks that necessitated the barrier in the first place.

Amazingly, the word “terror” does not figure in the Red-Green Collaboration’s position paper. Not once.

It is a telling discrepancy. A coalition of left-wingers and extreme left-wingers who want to take over the reins of power in Sweden, who fail to recognize or acknowledge terror abroad, are willing to sacrifice Swedish lives abroad, and who promote contravention of international law.

All so as to promote the interests of Palestine over Israel.

It seems like the Communist, Social Democratic and Green parties are campaigning in the wrong elections – it’s Ramallah they should set their sights on, not Stockholm.

After all, the current Fatah incumbent in Ramallah has already come to the end of his legal term in office and is now just staying on in power, irrespective of the legislative niceties of the situation.

In old-fashioned English this was called a coup. Possibly a dictatorship. Whatever it is, it certainly isn’t democracy.

Here is what Fatah has to say about the Palme Centre, set up in honour of Sweden’s notoriously anti-American and anti-Israel Social Democrat Olof Palme: “After the election in 2006, we were contacted by social democratic parties from many countries. But we get along best with the Swedes”.

It figures.
 
Watch this space in September for the Swedish election results.
