The chairman of the Jewish community in Stockholm expressed concern for statements made by the Swedish Foreign Minister earlier this week.

In an interview with Tazpit Press Service (TPS), Aron Verstandig said that while he believed that legitimate and proportionate criticism of Israel could be voiced, Margot Wallstrom’s comments have caused a great deal of concern among Sweden’s Jewish community.

“The way she has expressed herself time and again since she became foreign ministermore than a year ago shows that she has some sort of antipathy toward Israel and as the chairman of the Jewish community it makes me very sad,” Verstandig commented.

On Tuesday, Swedish Foreign Minister Wallstrom stated that an investigation should be launched into possible Israeli extrajudicial executions during the present wave of terrorist attacks.
