Reepalu: Please Stop Shooting, Please

Reepalu: When it's not "the Jews' fault", be nice!
Well, in a turnaround from previous policies regarding violence in Malmö, Mayor Ilmar Reepalu is now planning a city hall letter-writing campaign to reduce the ongoing attacks in the city. As readers may recall, when violence is directed against Jews in Malmö, Reepalu squarely places the blame on Jewish support for Israel.  

Now Reepalu is planning to send open letters to groups in Malmö, asking them nicely to cooperate with city authorities. Isn’t that funny? According to the tactical logic Reepalu applied to anti-Semitic violence, victims should be blamed for having heads which serve as targets for criminal bullets.

Here’s one talkback from the Local that really sums up this story:

-“I think Mr. Reepaly woke up one day and realized, ‘Oh crap ... this violence isn't just effecting Jews anymore!!!’

“Meanwhile the rest of us are sitting here going, ‘no sh!@ sherlock.’"

Someday even Ilmar Reepalu will be able to see that it may start with violence against Jews, but it never ends there.
