Swedish anti-Semitism was expressed, September 4 2009, through the Swedish Police. The incident of verbal anti-Semitism was uttered by Swedish Chief Police Inspector Ola Österling.
Five individuals wearing the Magen David symbol on their chests stood at a distance to the island Skeppsholmen in Stockholm where European Union foreign affairs ministers had gathered for informal dialogue; very likely to unofficially talk also about unifying European Union foreign affairs ministers against Israeli settlements on historically Jewish land (www.se2009.eu/en).
The Swedish Chief Police Inspector ordered the five individuals wearing the Magen David symbol to immediately leave the public access area by expressing an anti-Semitic motivation. The Chief Inspector forcefully ordered “You can absolutely not stand here with those symbols!!”, while he simultaneously, with an outstretched arm pointed his finger directly at the Magen David symbol on the chest on the clothes of one of the five individuals. The Chief Inspector’s finger pointed closely to the Magen David symbol on the chest. All five individuals wore the David Magen symbol on their chest.
The Swedish Chief Police Inspector’s order that only those five individuals in the public-accessed area must leave, through his explanatory command “You can absolutely not stand here with those symbols!!” with reference to the Magen David symbol, is another incident of Swedish anti-Semitic discrimination.
But Swedish Police further disgrace themselves through dishonesty. In response to a complaint to the Parliamentary Ombudsman of Justice (JO) over an absolutely accurate description and entirely correct citation of the Chief Inspector’s anti-Semitic exclamation“You can absolutely not stand here with those symbols!!” with reference to the Star of David, the Chief Inspector denied to JO his exclamatory command. The Swedish Police deliberately chose to lie to JO. The Swedish Police untruthfully denunciated the absolutely accurate citation by stating that the Chief Inspector does not recognise the reported account. Additionally, in spite of many police present at the scene who should be able to testify against the Chief Police's lies, the Swedish Police chose again to construct an erroneous and misleading counter-report to JO.
