Bibi: don't call the Swedish PM - call Haaretz first

According to this article, Bibi is pissed off at the Swedish Foreign Minister, one Margot Wallström. So much so that he "called his Swedish counterpart Stefan Löfven on Sunday to convey his criticism...".

Yes, Bibi has enough reasons to be angry. Ms Wallström has provided at least two good reasons for that, the last one surely bordering on blood libel.
Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström on Friday accused Israel of executing Palestinian assailants without trial.
...
"And in the same way the response cannot be, and I say this in other situations as well, where the response becomes so that there are extrajudicial executions, or that it becomes disproportionate so the numbers of dead on the other side is greater than the original death toll by several factors," she said.
One could argue the point from a common sense and common practice point of view, such as, for instance, the common practice when facing a knife wielding assailant being to shoot the said assailant in the center mass. Which is totally true, but truth tends to get lost at the oxygen depraved political peaks where Margot Wallström and her colleagues roam.

One could argue that Ms Wallström is simply a no good dumbo, as her stumbling and mumbling attempts to deny what she said (second time during last month) abundantly prove:
The foreign minister made a general statement about international law and the right to self-defense and the importance of proportionality and distinction. What she stated applies to all parties.
Yeah, yeah, spare me the officious crap. Anyway, this is not the point I wanted to make. The point is that, while Bibi is wasting his hot breath on Sweden's chilly attitude toward Israel (which is not going to thaw anytime soon in any case), Margot Wallström's moral high horse came at least second after a much earlier accusation by one Gideon Levy, our self-appointed Moral Compass.


I would suggest that this is the case that has to be dealt too - and no, I don't mean closing down the Haaretz or hounding the poor well-meaning Mr Levy. Just addressing it, because it should be addressed, because this is exactly the fodder Ms Wallström and her ilk are using. Say no more...
