Israeli Ambassador, politicians and journalists are registered as disseminators of online hatred by the Swedish State

Thousands of people have been registered by the Swedish public agency “The Swedish Institute”, an agency subordinate to the Swedish Foreign Office, as potential or active disseminators of online hatred. On the list, there are diplomates, politicians, journalists and thousands of Swedish citizens.

On Monday, the Swedish public agency The Swedish Institute, which is subordinate to the Swedish Foreign Office, reported that it had drawn up a list of Twitter users that are engaged in, or potentially may engage in, dissemination of online hatred.
The list is used to block users that follow the Twitter account @sweden, which is owned and administered by The Swedish Institute.
The account @sweden is handed over every week to a Swedish citizen who is allowed to use this channel to promote Sweden internationally. One of these users got an approval from The Swedish Institute to apply her private blocking list on the agency’s account.
“Approximately 12 000 international and Swedish accounts that engage in baiting, threats, hatred and incitement against immigrants, women and LGBTQ-persons, but also against organizations that are committed to human rights. These accounts often have a right-wing extremist and/or a neo-Nazi tendency, and they also incite to violence”, The Swedish Institute explains on its website.
One of these international accounts belongs to The Israeli Ambassador in Sweden. Several parliamentarians from different parties are also on the list, but also journalists and public figures.
