Swedish Jews to Appeal Neo-Nazi March Near Synagogue

The march will not only fall on the same day as the holy Jewish holiday Yom Kippur, a day of atonement observed by fasting and praying, it will also pass close to a Gothenburg synagogue, The Local reports.

I realise that it’s upsetting, but even Nazis have the right to free speech. However, they shouldn’t be allowed to propagate their inhumane ideology unchallenged. And if they break any law, which I’m sure they will, the police must act promptly and stop them. The police must secure the synagogue and the Gothenburg Jewry. Let’s the Nazi fools march with their stupid flags and silly uniforms, but keep them away from those they hate.

Danny Westneat of the Seattle Times wrote a spot-on column about a month ago: “Don’t give in to them. If you can muster it, have a laugh, at their expense, instead.”
