A NEW LOW: ‘Stabbing attacks in Israel are not terrorism’ – says piece of **** Swedish Prime Minister
“No, it [stabbing attacks] is not classified as that [terrorism]. There is an international classification when it is, or is not. What I know is not classified as terrorism,” Lofven told Sweden’s TT news agency on Monday.
Later on Monday the Prime Minister contacted the agency, wanting to clarify his message in order to avoid a misunderstanding.
“I was referring to the fact it is not clear whether these knife attacks have been organized by some classified terrorist organization,” he said as cited by Ynetnews. “But organized attacks are precisely acts of terrorism,” he added.
The controversial statements made by the Swedish Prime Minister came amid heightened tensions between Sweden and Israel over comments made by the Swedish foreign minister, Margot Wallstrom, who said that Israel has resorted to the unlawful killing of Palestinians.
“The response [to Palestinian stabbing and car-ramming attacks] must not be of the kind – and this is what I say in other situations where the response is such that it results in extrajudicial executions or is disproportionate in that the number of people killed on that side exceeds the original number of deaths many times over,”Wallstrom said last week.
