PARIS - The following outrage was shared with the Swedish Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, demanding immediate action.
Simon Wiesenthal Centre Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels, today opened a zoom meeting on combating antisemitism in partnership with ECCAR, the over 150 municipality-member European Coalition of Cities Against Racism.
Samuels noted the Centre's annual monitoring of hate at international book fairs, focussing on the just-opened Arab Book Fair in Malmö, Sweden. "Due to its notoriety for Jew-hatred and the fact that local police had not arrested any of the perpetrators, the Centre's Associate Dean and Global Social Action Director Rabbi Abraham Cooper, in 2010, imposed a 'Travel Advisory' on Malmö."
