    ... indeed smashing. 24 vs.16! A real tsunami, which will be called "the sixth alyiah wave" in zionist historiography. I guess at any given year more Swedish Jews make "aliyah" to Germany than to Israel in this "peak year" plus five years prior. Lipshiz wraps this demographic fact in the magic verbal formula that can smuggle just any conceivable claptrap into headlines of the main Israeli paper: "anti-Semitism may be...". But this one steals the show: "possibly owing in part at least to various attacks...", coming ,for some peculiar reason, from an official of ICEJ. The "may have", "possibly owing" and "in part at least" are just as good in assuming more plausibly that the Int. Ministry was less lenient this year with formalizing the Swedish applicants. Big or risible, fake or not, the "wave" is good enough to "evidence" the wave of antisemitism in the country where it's nearly absent. Given that, why would Liphshitz care to ask those 8 applicants what were their reasons...
