    Sweden,that included Norway in XIX Century, were the last European countries to allow Jew to settle and grant Jews legal rights.,While a number of Jews lived in Sweden, practicing their rituals in secret,a Jewish community was not officially established until the 1770's.Samson Efraim visited Sweden on business in 1702.More Jewish businessman came to Sweden because of the demands of the East Indian Company and,in 1733,Jews were allowed to visit auctions in Goteborg.Until 1860,Jews were only allowed to live in Stockholm,Goteborg.In 1840,about 900 Jews lived in Sweden.in 1838 when King Charles XIV removed some of the restrictions placed on Jews.The last prohibitions was not removed until 1951,blocking Jews from political offices. Swedes racism is crystalizing now.I emphasize Swedish racism and discriminatory attitudes are not exclussively antisemtic.Swedes look down at Norwegians whom they consider oefs(Norway separated from Sweden in 05',Swedes despise Fins..Why Jews now? Moslem votes!!
