A local politician with Sweden’s ruling party said that Israel trained the jihadist ISIS group to wage war on Muslims.Malmo is the epicenter of anti-Semitism in Sweden, which is perhaps not unrelated to the fact that their politicians pedal in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
Adrian Kaba, who represents Sweden’s Social Democrats in Malmo’s city council, made the statement this summer during a discussion on Facebook, the Sydsvenskan newspaper reported on Thursday. Reacting to the report, the chairman of the party’s regional branch, Joakim Sandell, said, “An elected official should not be spreading conspiracy theories.”
In his Facebook post, Kaba wrote on July 21: “ISIS is being trained by the Israeli Mossad. Muslims are not waging war, they are being used as pawns by other peoples’ game.”
But again, Kaba really over-stretched himself here. One doesn't have to say that Israel controls ISIS to claim that they're really basically the same thing. Or perhaps he could, like one of his British counterparts, just complain that ISIS isn't attacking Israel like it should be.
