A man received permission from Swedish authorities to burn a Torah and Bible at the Israeli embassy in Stockholm on Saturday. According to national radio, it is an act of protest.

Israeli public radio reported that the government was trying to stop the planned arson. The radio quoted Israel’s ambassador to the Scandinavian country as saying, “This is an expression of hatred and disrespect that has nothing to do with freedom of expression.”

Burning the Qur’an

At the end of June, an Iraqi refugee set fire to a Koran during a demonstration in the Swedish capital. He also obtained permission to do so. The burning of the Qur’an sparked outrage in countries with large Muslim populations. In Iraq, the Swedish embassy was stormed.

The European Union also condemned this act. “Burning the Quran or any other holy book is an insult, disrespect and a clear provocation,” the European Union’s diplomatic service, EEAS, wrote in a statement.

In January, a far-right Danish-Swedish politician burned a Quran in protest. This has also led to strong reactions from Islamic countries. In February, Swedish police banned the burning of the Qur’an outside the Turkish embassy on grounds of disturbing public order and security.
