A European Championship qualifier match between the Israeli and Swedish handball teams on Sunday sparked protests urging a boycott of Israel on the grounds that it is an “apartheid state.”

It is worth mentioning that Karlskrona today is the center for the Neo-Nazis in Sweden. They supported the demonstrations against a handball match between Israel and Sweden.
The other groups who supported this demonstrations were supporters of Islamic Jihad.
Earlier leftist politicians in Sweden also have joined such anti-Jewish protests.
Quite a rainbow alliance against the state of Israel.
In 1972 such protests lead to a terrorist attack on the Olympic games in Munich in Germany. It was called Operation Black September. 11 Israeli sportsmen were slaughtered by the “Arab Palestinians”.
Neo-Nazism took its toll in Munich in 1972. Neo-Nazism lives on in Sweden.
