Jewish Media Influence in Sweden (and Finland)
a concerned Swede reveals Jewish mafia overtake
[letter originally posted at the Jewish Tribal Review site, some corrections and additions to the text by Radio Islam]
Every now and then we get some really interesting evidence from readers of this web site [JTR]. This was just emailed to us from a reader originally from Sweden. We hope the enlightened in other nations will find their way to us and research their own country's media apparatus, and who controls it.
This paradigm of Jewish dominance of mass media information sources is evidenced throughout the world, from the U.S. to Great Britain, from Brazil to Australia, from Poland to Peru. [See our research about the subject.]
First of all I would like to laud you for an exhaustive and well-prepared site. You have certainly gone through the Jewish question thoroughly before compiling your observations and analysis. Reading your This week's Jewish News as usual today there was one piece of news that made my face wreathed in smiles. The piece of news concerned how the Jewish community of Lithuania accused LNK television for anti-Semitism.
Well, the far too familiar irony is that the LNK, as stated in the article is owned by the Bonnier family, based in my country of origin, Sweden. Worth mentioning then is that the Bonniers are Jewish themselves. Bonnier is a taken name; originally the family was named Hirschel. Not only is the Bonnier family Jewish and not only do they own LNK, but they are the far most influential media group in Sweden and in Finland.
Of the seven largest daily newspapers in Sweden, the seven with a daily circulation of over 100,000, the Bonnier family owns four, Dagens Nyheter (the Daily News), Expressen (the Express), Sydsvenska Dagbladet (the Southern Swedish Daily News) and Dagens Industri (the Industry of Today). The largest of the private channels in Sweden is TV4. The Bonnier family directly holds 21,6% of TV4 and through their ownership of the Finnish based Alma media company they hold an additionally 23,4%, totalling up 45% and a virtual control. As head of TV4 we find the Jew Jan Scherman. Through Alma Media, Bonnier also controls MTV3, the most popular channel in Finland with 39,1% of the total viewing time (in 2001) and Subtv, the third largest commercial television channel in Finland, aiming mainly at young adults.
Apropos Finland, Bonnier also owns 23% of MTV in that country. In Finland, Bonnier also controls the leading daily Iltalehti and Kauppalehti, Finland's largest business media with a circulation of 85.000 per day. Bonnier also control the printing house Lehdentekijät, that produces 40 regularly published magazines in Finland. In addition to that they own five regional papers, 15 local papers and nine free-distribution papers in Finland alone. They further control the Baltic News Service, the leading news bureau in the Baltic region, providing the world with news about the Baltic with a Bonnier touch.
Beside the Bonnier family in Sweden there is the Jew Peter Hjörne (Kaplan), owner and chief editor of Göteborgs-Posten (the Gothenburg Post; GP), the fourth largest newspaper in Sweden with a circulation of 253,700, reaching 600,000 readers daily. GP is furthermore the only newspaper in Sweden's second city, Gothenburg. Hjörne is also the owner of two local newspapers, Bohuslänningen (32.400) and Strömstads tidning (5,200); both distributed in the Swedish north-west coast area. In addition he controls 22% of Liberala tidningars konsortium (the consortium of liberal newspapers) and thereby Nerike Allehanda (The eighth largest newspaper in Sweden with a circulation of 66,300), Motala tidning/Vadstena tidning (12,800), Bergslagsposten (10,600) and Nya Ludvika tidning (9,500). Finally he also holds 9% of Hallandsposten (31,000).
Hjörne is a part of the old Jewish establishment in Gothenburg and has his way to influence the Gentiles of that city. For instance, when the Jew Steven Spielberg's movie "Schindler's List" reached the screens Hjörne personally paid so all senior high school students would see it.
Hjörne is also part of the Zionist establishment in Sweden and is a regular supporter of the activities of the United Israel Appeal (Keren Hayesod). In 2008 it was revealed that Hjörne surpressed one of his empoyees (editor Gert Gelotte) on the grounds that he in his writings had defied the newspapers pro-Israel line.
In Göteborgs-Posten, 12 December 1999, Peter Hjörne stressed his Jewish background and his "obvious and longtime engagement for the Jewish cause".
Peter Hjörnes uncle (the brother of his mother) is the famous Swedish Jew Pehr Gyllenhammar, former boss of the Volvo car company and who has also entered the international media cicles (see the article Zionist Jew Pehr Gyllenhammar infiltrates the Reuters News Company).
The Bonnier family owns 30% and Hjörne owns 10% of The Swedish News-agency Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå (the Swedish Central News Agency), the mainly news source for the none-local news stories in most minor papers in Sweden.
The largest newspaper in Sweden is Aftonbladet (the Evening Post), jointly owned by the Swedish Labour Union and the Norwegian Schibstedt company. The chief editor, however, is the Jewess Helle Klein, great granddaughter of the former grand rabbi of Stockholm, Rabbi Gottlieb Klein. Her uncle, Ernst Klein, is influential in Swedish media as well. 1990-1999 he was the chief editor of Östgöta Correspondenten, the ninth largest newspaper in Sweden, and now he sits on its board. Ernst Klein used to be the foreign editor of Bonnier-owned tabloid Expressen. He furthermore is president of Svensk Presshistorisk Förening (Swedish association of press history).
Beside Helle Klein there are several Jewish staffers working at Aftonbladet.
In other words, of the seven largest news papers in Sweden, six are either owned by or edited by Jews. And please note, there are fewer than 20,000 Jews in Sweden making up roughly 0.2% of the total population. Actually, I could go on and on describing the Jewish media influence in Sweden but I guess you see where I am heading. That LNK or Bonnier would be anti-Semitic is about the most ridiculous I have heard. Keep up the good work!
I will provide you with more information about the Jewish influence in Sweden that is actually quite stunning, especially considering the low number of Jews living here. This will take some time however since I would like to do a good job if the material is intended for publication. In a while I will have a paper which discuss the Jewish influence in media in greater detail then was the case in my e-mail.
For instance, there is a Jew named Robert Aschberg in Sweden who wields a great lot of power in our media. He owns the largest production company in Sweden called Strix Television and produces programs for every major channel, especially TV3 where almost all programs that arent Hollywood produced sitcoms, talk shows (Ricky Lake and Jerry Springer) or bad movies comes from Strix. It was Strix by the way that first came up with the idea of the show Survivor, now broadcasted also in the USA. Aschberg himself is the head of several of these usually noisy and chaotic shows and has thus been called Swedens Michel Friedman. His maternal grandfather is the banker Olof Aschberg who helped finance the Russian revolution and his brother, Richard Aschberg, works at Aftonbladet (the Evening Post). Robert Aschberg is further an important financer of eXpo, a Swedish version of the ADL, while it however is not an exclusively Jewish organization.
To analyze the Jewish influence in Sweden is a delicate matter, much due to the fact that the influence in many regards is indirect. For instance, a couple of years ago (in 1997) a Jewish historian named Stéphane Bruchfeld made an investigation asking Swedish students questions about the Holocaust. The result of the investigation showed that one third of the student questioned the official version of the Holocaust, something that outraged the media who blamed the Swedish educational system for this. The government responded by making a decision that 700.000 copies of a book about the Holocaust that should be distributed to all students in the country and be sent to several households. The author appointed for writing the book? You might remember his name: Stéphane Bruchfeld. The best part is that after the decision was made, someone noticed that Bruchfeld accidentally had misinterpreted the figures of his investigation. Actually very few students questioned the official version of the Holocaust.
Well, Bruchfeld was not very sorry, he had already been appointed to write the book which then was distributed as planed. As a consequence several schools arranged annual theme days with discussions about how Jews have been persecuted and history in school nowadays focus more on the Holocaust than on the Second World War at large. The actions of Bruchfeld may have been direct, but many of the consequence were indirect. There was no official demand for theme days or more focus on the Holocaust in education, still as this was a direct result of Bruchfelds doings and how young Swedes nowadays are learning about the unique suffering of Jews during the Second World War is an example of the indirect Jewish influence in our country.
Bruchfeld is by the way engaged in Svenska Kommittén mot Antisemitism (SKMA; the Swedish Committee against Anti-Semitism), a lobbying organization that also educates schoolteachers, students and journalists about anti-Semitism, which in practice mean that all criticism of Jews is hate and should be extinguished. Earlier this week SKMA arranged a two-day seminar called From prejudice to genocide and had invited leading journalists from all major media. The two main themes of the seminar were that criticism of Israel in media should be equated with anti-Semitism, which in the end could, or most likely would, end with genocide, and that anti-Semitism among Muslims and Arabs in Sweden is widespread but denied by the anti-Semitic media in Sweden. Well, of course the anti-Semitic media ruled by the Bonnier family, Peter Hjörne (Kaplan) and Helle Klein responded by denouncing the evil Muslims and Arabs in Sweden that do have the nerve to criticize Jews or the altruistic state of Israel. I have read the 50 page report released by SKMA during the seminar, The Denied Hatred Anti-Semitism among Arabs and Muslims in Sweden. I wish I had the time to translate it for you, and I guess you wished you had the time to then actually read it. It expresses some extremely subjective perspectives and exemplifies the particularistic view that so many Jews hold.
The official author of the report, the Gentile Mikael Tossavainen, equates all anti-Semitism with Jew-hate. This is very important when analyzing what he later on refers to as anti-Semitic. For instance, the report claims that the view that Jews somehow ever could contribute to or cause an anti-Semitic reaction is in it self anti-Semitism made manifest. Further, the policies or doings of Israel has nothing at all to with why Arabs or Muslims may dislike Jews, according to the report. All Arabs or Muslims who may dislike or criticize Jews have hated Jews all along anyway. Another amazing suggestion is that anything critical about Judaism as a religion is anti-Semitic. To claim that Jews according to the Jewish religion are considered to better then the nations of the world or that that there would be anything amoral in Torah, or any glorification of violence is anti-Semitism. In other words, if you do claim anything of this you are an anti-Semite and per definition do hate Jews. Great objective scholarship dont you think? The report also considers Palestinian school-books anti-Semitic since they refer to Israel as the 1948-country, calls suicide-bombers martyrs, and do not mention the Oslo-accord. Well, well, what could one not add to this discussion regarding Israeli school-books? Then, of course, there is no term for Jewish hatred of Gentiles. Racism? No, Judaism is perfect remember, anything critical to Jewish behavior or Judaism is anti-Semitism and anti-Semitism is Jew-hatred.
This is the paradigm of Jewish apology, the extremely subjective and contradictory Jewish apology. The logic is that all Gentiles criticizing Jews do so, always, without any real reason except for an irrational, pathologic hatred. These anti-Semitic Gentiles further blame Jews for all the bad things happening to them in the world. Well, what if we apply that logic to Jews, what do we have? Jews are constantly blaming Gentiles for being anti-Semitic whenever they are having any problems. All the Jews problems are caused by anti-Semites; at least that is what we are told. The same logic Jews claim anti-Semites are following they are following themselves by expressing that very claim. Well, I guess we will continue discussing this topic further on in the future.
Lithuanian Jewish community blames LNK
television for anti-Semitism
Interfax, October 23, 2003
"The Jewish Community of Lithuania (JCL) has demanded that the private TV channel LNK stop the "anti-Semitic propaganda" in its programs, JCL Chairman Simonas Alperavicius told Interfax on Wednesday. JCL has sent LNK's managers, Swedish media group Bonnier, which owns the station, and the Swedish media community an open letter saying that "the authors of the humorous program Dviracio Zynios (Bicycle News), pretending to engage in parodies, incites spectators against the Jewish people," Alperavicius said. This was especially clear in the program dealing with the September visit of Israeli Knesset Chairman Reuven Rivlin to Vilnius. "When the humorous issues of this TV channel concern the Jewish theme, a character parodying a Jew is always presented as a swindler or thief trying to get rich in a dishonest way - how long are we going to tolerate this?" Alperavicius said. Rivlin's statements in Lithuania "have evoked a tide of intolerance and anti-Semitism, and websites have seen over four thousand anti-Semitic remarks that were beyond any standards of civilized dialogue," he said. "In this situation, the escalation of negative stereotypes on a TV channel's programs could influence the state of mind in unhealthy people and encourage some politicians to make irresponsible statements or even verbal attacks against Lithuanian citizens of Jewish origin," the letter says. Israeli Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin, during his September visit, was categorical about the responsibility of Lithuanians for slaughtering Jews during the Nazi occupation, which caused a controversial response. In particular, Seimas Chairman Arturas Paulauskas told Lithuanian radio that Rivlin's visit "was not something that could serve the improvement of our relations or better understanding of our positions."
