Upcoming Sweden-Israel Handball Match— More Violent Protests than 2009 Davis Cup?

The following preliminary information is for a Sweden-Israel handball match which is to take place in Karlskrona, Sunday, June 12.

According to information from the Israel Friends group in the city of Karlskrona in southern Sweden, there is already an unbridled propaganda war against Israel. The match is to be held on June 12, and distribution of flyers and posters has already whipped up feelings of hatred. There are clear signs that the anti-Israeli demonstrations might be better organized than those at the tennis match in Malmo 2009. The earlier match  was accompanied by a massive police presence due to security considerations—even though the authorities prohibited spectators from attending the game. PGS [Palestinian Solidarity Group] chapters from all over Sweden are planning massive presence, as well as various Muslim, extreme left and Nazi groups (Nazis are strong in Karlskrona).

According to the flyers, PGS head Per Gahrton (formerly of the Green and Liberal Parties) will speak in front of the stadium at 5:00 p.m. (game starts at 6:00 p.m.) PGS therefore, are publishing this information BEFORE they get police permission for the demonstration
