Sweden is full of solicitude for Jews in the wake of anti-Semitic attacks. But the country also seeks to limit Jews freedom to practice their faith. My latest.
This is an amazing article (not in a good way) on how religious Jews is Sweden are attacked by both the pagan jihad and islamic jihad (ironically blessed by the pagans who hate other religions but love Islam)
