Sweden: Foreign Minister accuses Israel of 'extrajudicial executions' and ‘disproportionality'

Via Jerusalem Post:
Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom struck again on Friday, infuriating Jerusalem by accusing it of extrajudicial executions and disproportionate force in responding to the current wave of Palestinian terrorism.

According to the Swedish newspaper Expressen, Wallstrom – who has triggered several diplomatic incidents with Israel since taking up her post in October, 2014 - was asked in the Swedish parliament by Liberal MP Mathias Sundin why she has not condemned in strong terms the recent wave of terror in Israel.

Wallstrom said that the attacks were “terrible,” and “must not happen,” and added that Israel has “the right to defend itself.”

Then she went on to say that the response cannot be “extrajudicial executions” or a reaction that is “disproportionate” so that the “numbers of dead on the other side” is several times greater.
