In Sweden, a Jewish synagogue was attacked by 20 masked men during a party for young people on Saturday night, local media reports. The apparent motive was Muslim anger over the recognition of Israel’s capital as the capital of Israel.
It’s another incident in the “Day of Rage” violence where Muslim mobs are behaving in that way Muslim mobs tend to do: by attacking Jews and destroying things.

Here’s more from the the NY Daily News:
About two dozen people were attending a party inside the synagogue in Gothenburg on Saturday night when suspects threw burning bottles against the building, police told the Goteborgs-Posten.
The kids inside took refuge in the basement, according to a mother who spoke to Expressen. Her daughter was in the building and texted her during the incident.
“Mom I’m getting scared,” she wrote.
Authorities arrived at the scene around 10 p.m. and put out a fire in the parking lot. The building did not catch on fire and no one was injured.
It’s the second attack since President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
It’s ugly in Sweden, and many other European countries, which are absolutely overflowing with refugees from Muslim countries.
Tonight's synagogue firebombing (https://t.co/RVsiiwmj73) and last night's chants about shooting Jews (https://t.co/TVDBIon1gy) didn't take place in a vacuum. Swedish Jews have been living in what has been described as a "climate of fear" for years. https://t.co/PpFnyUhsJl— Avi Mayer (@AviMayer) December 9, 2017
The President of the United States made an announcement some people don’t like, so protesters in the UK and Sweden are threatening to kill Jews. Not Americans – Jews. Not Israelis – Jews.— Avi Mayer (@AviMayer) December 9, 2017
