Lets see: 5% muslims versus lets say 60% who oppose Israels occupation. You do the math.
This is just an exapmle: a CIA report from 1996.
Activities of these organizations are an integral part of the Israel-bashing campaign.

Besides occupation of Gaza? Which year are you living in? The Jews have been taken out of Gush Katif and other Jewish villages long ago, all what is left are a bunch of Arab clans and Israel has no obligation to them.
In related news, two visiting journalists for the Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet which ran the story arrived at the Government Press Office (GPO) in Jerusalem Sunday to request press accreditation, Israel Radio reported. GPO Director Danny Seaman told the radio station that he had instructed his employees to take as much time as is needed and allowed by regulations - up to three months - to review the request. Seaman said that the two journalists, a reporter and a cameraman, had responded angrily and even "rudely" to the news that the review process may take time. Seaman asked his employees to explain to the two that the process may take some time due to checks that must be made, including - he said jokingly - blood tests to check the reporters' blood types and eligibility for organ transplant.
I think , instead of jokes, denial of accreditation and immediate deportation would have been much more appropriate.
I suppose if this would happend in an Islamic country, they would prefer to leave it voluntarily, silently, and as soon as possible.a reporter and a cameraman, had responded angrily and even "rudely" to the news that the review process may take time.
It's an article featuring unfounded accusations. The Swedish government is hindered by the constitution to interfere or comment and they do not wish to do so either.
Of course that's one of the issues regarding the immigration; integrating into a society with different values and norms, not to mention language and monetary issues, is not an easy task at all for some of the immigrants.
But for some reason some people still take the path of paranoia believing that Europe is doomed because of their so called new Muslim overlords who are in reality just plain street hooligans with no any real power whatsoever. This bullshyt makes no sense, really.
This, in my view, is a reasonable assestment. SA and other Gulf states actively fund many of the most extrime anti-Israeli NGO. HRW fundraising compaign in SA featuring its anti-Israeli credentials is a sign that the mainstream organizations are picking up on the trend.
As for Gaza:
https://www.cia.gov/library/publicat...k/geos/is.htmlWest Bank and Gaza Strip are Israeli-occupied with current status subject to the Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement - permanent status to be determined through further negotiation; Israel continues construction of a "seam line" separation barrier along parts of the Green Line and within the West Bank; Israel withdrew its settlers and military from the Gaza Strip and from four settlements in the West Bank in August 2005; Golan Heights is Israeli-occupied (Lebanon claims the Shab'a Farms area of Golan Heights); since 1948, about 350 peacekeepers from the UN Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO) headquartered in Jerusalem monitor ceasefires, supervise armistice agreements, prevent isolated incidents from escalating, and assist other UN personnel in the region
If you can not comprehend this, then I sugest you take the issue up in a seperate thread.
Oh and these organisations are inspired by these same states?
If you feel your world view is crashing in front of your eyes. May I sugest you rap more tinfoil on your hat.

By now the Israeli gov should be well aware of the fact that Sweden´s constitution says no Gov/officals can condemn a article in the press.
So by today demanding exactly that, they have confirmed to me that they only use this incident (which wasn't one until they decided so) to play with their home audience.
Something to disrupt the news, to get people to bitch on Sweden rather than on the Netanyahu gov.
As to the rest of your post - whatever. There is ample evidence to the collusion of arab regimes and come of the more extrime NGOs. Further, it is hypociritcal to deny, that media in Europe is openly hostile to, rather then critical of, Israel which goes a long way to explain the public opinion on the continent. Furthermore, I am of an opinion that historic bias plays a role in all this. You believe otherwise - good for you. I am sure you also believe that the organ harvesting story needs further investigation.
