Sweden: "I can’t raise my kids to hide who they are"

Annika Hernroth-Rothstein in the Jerusalem Post (via Legal Insurrection)
 I just can’t live like this any longer. I can’t accept that life consists of long periods of fear and despair, interrupted by the short bursts of happiness I get when I come back to Israel. I can’t raise my kids to hide who they are, I can’t usher them into a society that teaches them they are the other and that being less of who they are is the key to survival. 
I just can’t, not anymore. 
I called this my home for 33 years. Yet, I realize now that it isn’t, and it never really was.
