Luleå, Sweden - During a recent interview, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said he believes the recent series of knife attacks against Israelis by Palestinians are not acts of terror because they do not meet the internationally accepted definition of the term.

HAARETZ.com (http://bit.ly/1lM9b60) reports that Löfven originally made the comments on Sunday during a visit to the Swedish town of Luleå, but then quickly walked his comments back mere hours later.


When first asked if the string of stabbings were, in fact, terror attacks, Löfven said, “No, it is not classified as such. There is an international classification regarding what constitutes or does not constitute [terror]. As far as I know, the [knife attacks in Israel] are not defined as terror.”

In his clarification issued later in the day, Löfven said, “I meant that it was unclear if the knife attacks are organized by a group classified as a terrorist organizations. Nonetheless, the attacks themselves do constitute terror.”

and gassing the Jews was also not terror. I look forward to the immediate fulfillment of Hashem destroying his children's enemies.

Well,will see if knife attacks will happen in Sweden if he will say the same.
Comes to prove time and time again that Jews are hated all over the world.

Antisemiths dont need a reason why to hate Jews. No matter what we do we are hated.

In today's days most antisemitism is becuase of Israel. Whatever happens around the world is all about Israel. We try to live in denial that Al Qaeda and ISIS do what they do becuase they hate the West but it aint so. In last weeks shooting in CA the father came out and said they hated Israel.

That's why it is so very important to let the non-Jewish world know that Zionism/Israel is a contradiction to authentic Judaism. And no, im not a member of NK

If we really wanted to terrorize Swedish punk like this guy, all we'd have to do was send one of our aircraft carriers near the shore of one of his cities. Just let it show up, and sit there for a while long enough for them to wonder what's about to maybe happen next.

You mean only when this non-terrorist will stab your children - then they will become terrorist?
Maybe when your grandparents sold our grandparents to Natzis - they also were not collaborators of Natzis?

He means it's not terror compared to what moslems are planning for Europe, as there are so many of them in Sweden, He just hopes it wouldn't be worse than the Paris bombings,

He is quoted at the end of the short article as saying that it is not considered by international law as terror although it is certainly a terror act.
