“Line the immigrants here on the film up against the wall and put a bullet between the eyes, then put them in a bag, stick a stamp on them and send them back to where they come from,” the Sweden Democrat candidate for Trelleborg in southern Sweden wrote on her Facebook page, according to the local Trelleborgs Allehanda daily.
Enderleit, who is on the party’s list in Trelleborg municipality in southern Sweden, used her Facebook page on Monday to comment on a film from a Sweden Democrat meeting. The party’s public meetings are often attended by counter-demonstrators and this one was no exception, with some new Swedes among the crowd.
When the newspaper called Marie-Louise Enderleit, who is employed by the county as an assistant nurse, to ask whether her comments might be construed as hate speech, she replied:
“It is very possible that could be, but it is agitation against us as well. We have freedom of speech don’t we, well for the time being at least,” adding, “I can’t take it when they carry on like that, we are treated like parasites.”
The Sweden Democrat’s local party leader in Trelleborg, Per Klarberg, told the newspaper that Enderleit now regretted her comments and that she has removed the post from her Facebook page.
Sweden Democrat press secretary Erik Almqvist, according to the Expressen daily, has described the comments as “totally reprehensible and totally unacceptable” and said that it was the party’s policy to contact representatives in cases such as these and he “presumed that would be the case now as well”.
Marie-Louise Enderleit is number 19 on the Sweden Democrat list for the municipal elections in Trelleborg and will thus not claim a seat as a councillor.
The Local has made attempts to contact Marie-Louise Enderleit, Per Klarberg and Erik Almqvist on Wednesday, but our calls have not been returned.
A crowd of around 6,000 people gathered in central Stockholm on Monday evening to demonstrate against racism after the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats were voted into Sweden’s parliament.
“It is very important to show that the big majority of the Swedish population is against the right-wing extremists like the Sweden Democrats,” Per Branevig, 33, told AFP, adding that he had voted for the Social Democrats in Sunday’s election.
“It has been a big shock for me that they got so many votes,” he said of the anti-immigrant party that secured 5.7 percent of the vote.
At around 6pm some 6,000 people, some waving banners stating “Yes to togetherness, No to racism” and “No racists in parliament,” gathered in Stockholm’s Sergels Torg, according to a police estimate.
The peaceful gathering was spontaneously organised by a 17-year-old girl from the Stockholm suburb of Sollentuna, Felicia Margineanu, who was so disappointed by the election results she posted a protest call on her Facebook page.
Sweden’s ruling centre-right coalition won the most votes Sunday but fell short of a overall majority, as the Sweden Democrats nearly doubled their result from the last election and entered parliament for the first time, landing it in a key position in the Riksdag.
“We don’t like those racists in the Riksdag. Being here shows the government that we care, that we don’t want them (the Sweden Democrats) in parliament,” said 18-year-old Younes Sedik, wearing a black T-shirt with orange lettering stating “I’m a Muslim. Don’t panic!”.
Standing near banners pointing out that “9,043,222 Swedes did not vote for the Sweden Democrats yesterday,” and that “94.3 percent of the people are not racists,” 21-year-old Thomas Zebuehr said he was “really unhappy” the extremists passed the four-percent barrier for entering parliament.
“I’m not sure what should be done, but something has to be done,” he told AFP.
A spontaneous demonstration against the Sweden Democrats also gathered in Sweden’s second largest city Gothenburg Monday evening, with up to 1,000 people participating, the TT news agency reported.
Another large demonstration is planned to be held in Stockholm on October 4th.
The organizers of an aid flottilla to Gaza said in Stockholm on Wednesday they would make a new attempt to reach the Palestinian territory before the end of 2010.
Chances are that they will be again Block and Massacred by Israel , who has no Human integrity
“We are going to send a flotilla if the siege is not lifted,” Ship to Gaza Sweden spokesman Dror Feiler told AFP after the group’s meeting in Stockholm.
A six-ship fleet first attempted to reach the Palestinian territory on May 31 but it was halted by an Israeli raid that left nine Turkish activists dead.
“We will go (again) before the end of this year and we are quite sure that this flotilla will be more boats, bigger boats, it will be several passenger boats,” said Feiler, who took part in the flotilla’s first trip.
“And as determined before, we will not accept Israeli control, we will not accept Israeli inspections and we will go to Gaza,” the Israeli-born Swedish artist and longtime activist said.
“We hope that Israel and the international community will realise it is not possible to stop this and that it is not acceptable to continue with the siege,” he added.
The Freedom Flotilla Coalition said in a statement it planned to enlarge the coalition “to include the various groups around the world that want to join us, as well as intensify our efforts to mobilise a new flotilla.”
“We are buying boats, we are getting a lot of funds to get more boats,” Feiler said, adding the “Ship to Gaza” movement had spread to France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, Australia, United States and Canada.
Wednesday’s meeting was “coordination of our efforts, discussion with the new groups,” Feiler said.
He said an exact date had not been set for the future attempt because of boat purchasing and licensing issues, and the weather.
Israel sparked international outrage when its commandos attacked the fleet early on May 31. Israeli troops then forced the six ships in the convoy to dock at an Israeli port, before detaining those on board.
UN chief Ban Ki-moon on Monday announced the formation of a four-member panel to probe the deadly raid. Israel has backed the investigation.
The Freedom Flotilla Coalition said Wednesday it had “fundamental concerns” with the panel, and that the easing of the Gaza blockade announced by Israel on June 21, was “purely cosmetic.”
Israel imposed the siege on the Gaza strip in June 2006 after its soldier, Gilad Shalit, was captured by Gaza militants, tightening it a year later when Hamas seized power in the coastal strip.
Swedish Forces (Terrorists) , another player in the whole game of Terrorizing Afhanistan , is now ordered their soldiers to open fire on Civilians with out any reason . This is called Lethal Fire .
In early March, the former head of the Swedish mission in Afghanistan, Christer Tistam, made an inquiry about greater authority to use Terror force against Innocent Aghanis. He believed that the soldiers should be allowed to use force and Kill Innocents themselves before they are feared to being attacked .
According to Rapport, Supreme Commander Sverker Göransson decided that new rules as stated above.
“I neither confirm or deny it,” Armed Forces Lieutenant General Anders Lindström told Rapport. “We have well adapted rules for the units that are terrorizing in Afghanistan and they follow the rules that apply to troops in the ISAF (International Security Assistance Force). Exactly who they are, we are not commenting.”
Four Swedish troops have been killed since Sweden began sending troops to Afghanistan in 2002. Sweden has contributed 500 soldiers to the international force in Afghanistan.
Besides killing and Masacreing millions of People in Aghanistan mainly Innocent civilians like Childern, Ladies, Old persons , only Four Terrorists from Swedish Died which is an open Humanity Crisis and HOLOCUAST 2.0
Police stopped the 31-year-old in the western city of Nantes and fined her 22 euros on the grounds that her niqab — an Islamic veil with a slit for the eyes — restricted her view so she could not drive safely.
Nantes: The lawyer for a French Muslim woman fined for driving while wearing a full-face veil accused police on Friday of abusing her human rights, as the government pushes to ban the garment.
Police stopped the 31-year-old in the western city of Nantes and fined her 22 euros (Dh108) on the grounds that her niqab — an Islamic veil with a slit for the eyes — restricted her view so she could not drive safely.
“This fine is not justified on road safety grounds and constitutes a breach of human and women’s rights,” Jean-Michel Pollono, the lawyer for the woman who was not named, said.
He insisted his client could “move freely” and “her field of vision was in no way obstructed”.
He added that “the field of vision of a motorcycle rider wearing a helmet is more restricted.”
President Nicolas Sarkozy’s government said Wednesday it would push ahead with a ban on wearing a full-face veil in public, despite a warning from judicial experts that such a law could be unconstitutional. There is strong support in parliament for the ban.
I fear that Israel will move swiftly to exploit to her advantage soon-to-occur world-wide hysterical fear of calamitous consequences of the major Gulf of Mexico oil leak that has already caused very large quantities of oil to flow into the Gulf – most of it still under the surface of the water – with simultaneous release of very large and perhaps even more dangerous quantities of gas. Both oil and gas are highly flammable, and experts will have to pronounce concerning the possibility of a deliberate or accidental ignition of all of this oil/gas and the horrendous consequences of such an explosion for the world. Is it possible, for example, that we can experience an extended period of darkness in the Americas in which black clouds will prevent the entry of sunlight?
Those who today possess a significant influence, if not control, over most of the world’s information media, may soon begin to inundate us with fearsome doomsday predictions concerning the possible consequences of the unplugged oil-well leak. This is likely to rise to a crescendo as possible consequences begin to materialize.
The universal distraction that will thus be created could provide, I believe, a perfect opportunity for Israel to launch yet another war that would seek to arrest her declining image and fortunes in world opinion. This is the clear message conveyed through the recent reckless and murderous attack on the Gaza Aid Flotilla that resulted in 9 deaths and in injuries to 50 others.
Al Jazeera’s report on board the Mavi Marmara before communications were cut
Israeli forces have attacked a flotilla of aid-carrying ships aiming to break the country’s siege on Gaza.
At least 15 people were killed and dozens injured when troops intercepted the convoy of ships dubbed the Freedom Flotilla early on Monday, the Israeli military said.
The flotilla was attacked in international waters, 65km off the Gaza coast.
Israeli Military spokeswoman, Avital Leibovich, confirmed that the attack took place in international waters, saying: “This happened in waters outside of Israeli territory, but we have the right to defend ourselves.”
Footage from the flotilla’s lead vessel, the Mavi Marmara, showed armed Israeli soldiers boarding the ship and helicopters flying overhead.
Al Jazeera’s Jamal Elshayyal, on board the Mavi Marmara, said Israeli troops had used live ammunition during the operation.
The Israeli military said four soldiers had been wounded and claimed troops opened fire after “demonstrators onboard attacked the IDF Naval personnel with live fire and light weaponry including knives and clubs”.
Free Gaza Movement, the organisers of the flotilla, however, said the troops opened fire as soon as they stormed the convoy.
Our correspondent said that a white surrender flag was raised from the ship and there was no live fire coming from the passengers.
Before losing communication with our correspondent, a voice in Hebrew was clearly heard saying: “Everyone shut up”.
Earlier, the Israeli navy had contacted the captain of the Mavi Marmara, asking him to identify himself and say where the ship was headed.
Shortly after, two Israeli naval vessels had flanked the flotilla on either side, but at a distance.
Organisers of the flotilla carrying 10,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid then diverted their ships and slowed down to avoid a confrontation during the night.
They also issued all passengers life jackets and asked them to remain below deck.
Al Jazeera’s Ayman Mohyeldin, reporting from Jerusalem, said the Israeli action was surprising.
“All the images being shown from the activists on board those ships show clearly that they were civilians and peaceful in nature, with medical supplies on board. So it will surprise many in the international community to learn what could have possibly led to this type of confrontation,” he said.
Meanwhile, Israeli police have been put on a heightened state of alert across the country to prevent any civil disturbances.
Sheikh Raed Salah,a leading member of the Islamic Movement who was on board the ship, was reported to have been seriously injured. He was being treated in Israel’s Tal Hasharon hospital.
In Um Al Faham, the stronghold of the Islamic movement in Israel and the birth place of Salah, preparations for mass demonstrations were under way.
Condemnation has been quick to pour in after the Israeli action.
Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, officially declared a three-day state of mourning over Monday’s deaths.
Turkey, Spain, Greece, Denmark and Sweden have all summoned the Israeli ambassador’s in their respective countries to protest against the deadly assault.
Worldwide outrage has followed the deadly Israeli attack of Gaza aid convoy [AFP]
Thousands of Turkish protesters tried to storm the Israeli consulate in Istanbul soon after the news of the operation broke. The protesters shouted “Damn Israel” as police blocked them.
“(The interception on the convoy) is unacceptable … Israel will have to endure the consequences of this behaviour,” the Turkish foreign ministry said in a statement.
Ismail Haniya, the Hamas leader in Gaza, has also dubbed the Israeli action as “barbaric”.
Hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists, including a Nobel laureate and several European legislators, were with the flotilla, aiming to reach Gaza in defiance of an Israeli embargo.
But Israel had said it would not allow the flotilla to reach the Gaza Strip and vowed to stop the six ships from reaching the coastal Palestinian territory.
The flotilla had set sail from a port in Cyprus on Sunday and aimed to reach Gaza by Monday morning.
Israel said the boats were embarking on “an act of provocation” against the Israeli military, rather than providing aid, and that it had issued warrants to prohibit their entrance to Gaza.
It asserted that the flotilla would be breaking international law by landing in Gaza, a claim the organisers rejected.
