Sweden: Neo-Nazi party to teach in schools

In a letter to Swedish Minister for Education and Deputy Prime Minister, here Jan Björkland (pictured), the Simon Wiesenthal Centre Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels, expressed shock that “the Party of the Swedes (Svenskarnas Parti) is to exploit a law permitting party access to schools as part of a civic education curriculum which, ironically, was established to produce a new generation predicated upon tolerance and human rights.” 
Samuels noted, “The Party of the Swedes is, reportedly, a cover for the former National Socialist Party of Sweden and continues to maintain a racist platform and discourse.” 
The letter advised the Minister that, “apparently, this party is to begin its school campaign in Malmö – a city under a Wiesenthal Centre travel advisory due to the inflammatory rhetoric of its former Mayor, Ilmar Reepalu, that provoked anti-Semitic violence against the Jewish community.” 
Adding neo-Nazi invective to this toxic brew will now endanger immigrant, Muslim, Roma, homosexual and Jewish students,” argued Samuels.
