Sweden: Top politician reported for claiming Jews are 'not Swedes'

It is estimated that there are between 15-20,000 Jews living in Sweden.

One of the most senior members of the populist Sweden Democrats has been reported to the police after writing on Facebook that Jewish and Sami people were “not Swedish”.

Björn Söder, who is the deputy speaker of the Swedish parliament, made his argument on the Facebook page of Sweden’s Centre Party, as part of defence against accusations from the party’s leader Annie Lööf.
