Well, Malmö continues apace Sweden's general decline, adding one more nail to the national coffin.
Malmö makes hunting illegals harder for cops
The municipality of Malmö will no longer print the personal identification numbers of marrying couples on the lists of upcoming civil weddings in a move which will make it harder for border police to hunt for illegal immigrants at weddings.
Meanwhile, Swedes can indulge in a little temporary vainglory now that Newsweek has ranked Sweden third in its Best Countries To Live In list. Sweden ranks right behind Finland and Switzerland.
I'm guessing that the good editors of Newsweek didn't bother consulting with any of the remaining Jews in Malmö, who have watched their once thriving community shrink as fellow Jews have been fleeing in droves. Perhaps this unambiguous article from The Telegraph just escaped their notice -- "Jews leave Swedish city after sharp rise in anti-Semitic hate crimes" (February 2010).
In 2009, a chapel serving the city's 700-strong Jewish community was set ablaze. Jewish cemeteries were repeatedly desecrated, worshippers were abused on their way home from prayer, and "Hitler" was mockingly chanted in the streets by masked men.
Malmo's Jews, however, do not just point the finger at bigoted Muslims and their fellow racists in the country's Neo-Nazi fringe. They also accuse Ilmar Reepalu, the Left-wing mayor who has been in power for 15 years, of failing to protect them.
It's just a hunch, but I'm guessing likely none of the illegals attempting to marry in Malmö are Jews. Just sayin'.
