Lessons from the Jews

Reader comment on item: Did Swedes Just Decide for National Suicide?

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Dec 30, 2014 at 14:22

One of my favourite books is "Jews, God & History" by Max Dimont. When he wrote about the gap between the Northern Kingdom being conquered by the Assyrians, and the Southern Kingdom conquered by the Babylonians, he mentioned that the Prophets were heeded by the South, more than the North, before exile.

At least the southern kingdom wanted to live as Jews, regardless of what was in store, but those in the Northern kingdom gave up the struggle.

So, who are the Swedes who want to live as Swedes? For I don't see them kowtowing to the invaders who conclude that Jihad is the way.
