Sweden funds anti-Israel brochure

From YNet:
Sweden has funded the publication of an anti-Israel booklet titled "Colonialism and Apartheid – the Israeli occupation in Palestine," Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday.

According to the report, the Swedish government transferred NIS 390,000 (roughly $104,600), under the guise of humanitarian aid, to a Swedish-Palestinian solidarity group for the creation of the ornate 40-page booklet.

The brochure's authors accuse Israel of racist legislation, ethnic cleansing, racial segregation, establishing an Apartheid regime in the territories, and bombing Palestinian civilian homes. Furthermore, the brochure calls for a boycott of the Jewish state.
The PDF of the brochure (Swedish) can be seen here. (It is 32 pages long, not 40.)

Anyone want to offer me $100,000 to write a 32 page booklet with lots of photos? I could deliver it in a month. If I make twelve of them a year I'd clear over a million dollars. And it could be a tax write-off!

And they say the pro-Israel side has money...

By the way, the same anti-Israel organization offers lots of anti-Israel materials for Swedish schools, and sends material to every secondary school in Sweden to use.
