The guy the paper quotes is making the argument that it is Muslims in general who are responsible. It isn’t. It’s extremist ones who make up a small fraction of the immigrant community in a couple of cities.

From the article:

“In the past five years I’ve been here, I think you can count on your hand how many incidents there have been from the extreme right,” he said. “In my personal experience it’s 99% Muslims.”

In other words, of all of the Anti-Semitic crimes in the last five years, 99% have come from Muslims, and only a handful have come from the extremist right.

But it isn’t “Muslims” it’s the small extremist fundie ones.

Perpetrating 99% of the Anti-Semitic acts. That’s what the man said.

He can’t mean that 99% of the Muslims are perpetrating the crimes, because, that’s a lot of crime. 99% refers to the amount of crime, not who is committing the crime.

Anti-Semitism spiked years ago in Malmo from the Muslim community and the police and the mayor very purposely, turned a blind eye. So much so, the Jews have feared for the lives and fled. Let him Google it.

The anti-Semitism spiked during Operation Cast Lead when Israel got sick of 8 years of missile attacks and decided to do something about it.

A “small” tidbit left out of that article. In fact, they don’t mention the Operation by name. Just “in the wake of Israel’s invasion of Gaza in 2009.” Invasion, indeed. You think Texas would wait years if Mexicans were lobbing missiles over the border? It’s almost laughable.

It was actually worse than that:

Swedish mayor blasts Zionism

Malmo mayor equates Zionism with anti-Semitism, urges Jewish community in city to distance itself from Israeli attacks on Gaza population; Swedish Jew says situation in town getting worse every year
Ynet - 01.28.10

Jewish residents in Malmo are furious after the Swedish town’s mayor, Ilmar Reepalu, equated Zionism to anti-Semitism in an interview published on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

During the interview with Skanska Dagbladet newspaper, Reepalu was asked whether he considered a public condemnation of anti-Semitism in Malmo. The mayor responded that “Malmo does not accept anti-Semitism and does not accept Zionism,” charging that both adopt extreme positions towards certain groups.

Reepalu added that local Jews bear some responsibility for the attitude towards them, noting that “they have the possibility to affect the way they are seen by society.” The mayor then urged Malmo’s Jewish community to “distance itself” from Israeli attacks on Gaza’s civilian population.

re: #4 Bob Levin

I think you are missing what I am saying

The man needs to specifically state these are a few extremist Muslims, and not just “Muslims” in general.
