Jewish anger as Swedish police claim latest anti-semitic Malmo attack was not hate crime

Police in Sweden have claimed they have "no indication" that a recent attack on the offices of the Jewish community centre in the city of Malmo was a hate crime. The police arrested and later released two 18-year-old men suspected of hurling a brick and a large firework at the entrance of the community's offices. Willy Silberstein of the Swedish Committee Against Anti-Semitism commented that he found the authorities' decision "very strange" and that when such incidents are not classified as hate crimes, it does not add to the credibility of government figures on anti-Semitism.
