Once Upon A Time…

There was a Swedish Prime Minister who enjoyed taking dips in the Dead Sea*.

No, it’s not a fairy tale.

Believe it or not, there was a time when relations between Sweden and Israel were good – in the 1950s and 1960s, during Tage Erlander’s tenure as Prime Minister of Sweden.

The Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson (1996-2006) was also a friend of Israel.

I’m hoping that things will get better once the current government is kicked out of office (which it will be) in the next election. I can’t wait to say bye-bye-now to Margot Wallström.
