Swedish Hypocrisy on Human Rights

Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom has been quick to blame the U.S. and Israel for alleged misdeeds toward the Palestinians. The Turkish-based Anadolu Agency reported on May 16, 2018 that Wallstrom blamed the U.S. for encouraging the Palestinian riots in Gaza. She is quoted as telling Swedish TT News Agency that: “The U.S. has a big responsibility in the incidents where at least 50-60 Palestinians were killed and many others injured.” This was said in the context of the Hamas organized provocation to march thousands of Gazan across the Israeli border. It also happened to occur during the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, which followed the Trump administration recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Wallstrom did not condemn Hamas’ effort to attack Israel and Jewish civilians.

The same Swedish foreign minister, Margot Wallstrom (pictured above), eager to condemn the U.S. and Israel, has been silent about the execution of Kurdish political prisoners by the Islamic Republic of Iran. Sweden has turned a blind eye on Iran’s gross violations of human rights, and its cruel executions of women and teenagers. The Iranian regime has executed Kurdish dissidents with impunity. Sweden was silent about it, as were other leaders of the EU. They were too busy appeasing the Ayatollahs in an effort to preserve the unreliable Iran nuclear deal or JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), and winning business contracts.

Shamm Shameyi Salih, a Kurdish Swede youngster wrote: “The Iranian regime has killed many civilians, where the majority are Kurdish children and women. Hundreds of thousands of families have seen their own children be executed, while a whole world is closing their eyes. The situation right now in the Middle East and Iran is unsustainable. It’s not okay that we, as a country, sit and watch when they are running executions of our Kurdish women and men.” He added, “The Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom has been silent for far too long for those who are exposed to the Kurds. This is no longer acceptable. The Iranian regime must be brought to justice immediately for breaches of our human rights.”

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
