Default Davis Cup in Malmoe. Is Sweden going to hell?

Pro-Gaza tennis demo

* Associated Press
* The Observer, Sunday 8 March 2009
* Article history



Dozens of anti-Israel activists clashed with police as they tried to storm an arena where Sweden and Israel were playing a Davis Cup tennis match. The activists hurled rocks at police vans as they tried to storm the barricades.

Sorry, can't find any pictures or whatsoever. But I've seen it in todays TV news and I assure you, it was horrible. Doors were clashed into pieces, thousands of people were shouting and giving the policemen a hard time.

I really can't understand all that behaviour. Are we back in the dark ages now? When Jews were the "Ultimate Threat" and "Shall be burnt, as they killed our lord Jesus" ?

Didn't Muslims turn the whole world in an uproar, when they killed hundreds and thousands of innocent people (9/11)? And now, they're the "Good" and Israelis are just "Filthy Warmongers" ? Europe is really turning in the wrong direction.

Yea, right. But at the end of the day, it's all that matters.

Most of the protestants were Arabian, and the war between Israel and the Palestinians isn't just a war for more space and a free Palestinian nation, it's a religious war.

However, I see the article was way too short. I'm going to look for a more solid article, which will show the seriousness of the situation.

BTW: The TV news guy called it "Swedens Gaza".


EDIT: And I know well, that my posts to this topic are full of personal feelings. It's just, that I really hate all those anti-Israel attacks. We (the people of the world) should assure that our children and childrens' children can live a free life, travel abroad where ever they want and even see places like Jerusalem (which is in greater danger now, than it was ever).

Israel Supporters Threaten Anti-War Protestors Print E-mail
Anti-war protestors have been left shaken and intimidated after their experience at a recent pro-Israel rally where Israeli supporters pushed, spit at, threw water bottles, and hurled death threats at them. At the rally in downtown Los Angeles on July 23, Israeli supporters also chanted “Death to Islam,” “Death to Arabs,” and “Let All the Lebanese people die.”

Close to three thousand people attended the rally to express solidarity with Israel while hundreds of counter protesters also attended.

“I have never experienced such a level of hatred towards Arabs and Muslims in my life,” said 21-year-old Aliyah O’keefe, who attended the rally to show solidarity with the Lebanese and Palestinian people. “Their violent behavior grew so fierce that a crew of police officers had to escort us back to our cars to shield us from their attacks,” she said. “Despite all this, the media portrayed the rally as ‘peaceful’ and ‘civil.’”

While Mr Lieberman has not joined this rhetoric, his supporters have a tendency to chant "Death to the Arabs" at party rallies. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...Lieberman.html

Extremists spray-painted "Mohammed is a pig" and "Death to Arabs" early Sunday on the walls and doors of the Sea Mosque in Jaffa, sparking the fury of the Islamic Movement in the mixed Arab-Jewish city http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1048562.html

After a while, counter-protestors sounded phrases such as "Death to Arabs" and even sang "Arik, King of Israel, still lives."

I'm sure Mel Gibson would say "Yes."
