*** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ***
Every Friday Night and Saturday, as I am enjoying the Jewish Sabbath, I like to read crime novels, mysteries, and thrillers (in addition to history books). But Henning Mankell’s books will never be among them. That’s because he’s an open supporter of Islamic terrorism, was part of the HAMAS Gaza flotilla, last year, and is vehemently anti-Israel and anti-Semitic.
Henning Mankell Mocks Israeli Fence Against Terrorism, @ Abu Dhabi Judenrein Book Fair
You may have heard of Mankell, because his latest detective mystery was just released, to glowing reviews in People, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and elsewhere. They all rave over Mankell and Detective Kurt Wallender, the hero of many of his books. With the success of the late Swedish writer Stieg Larsson’s novels, all of which have been made into successful movies, publishing houses and Hollywood are on the lookout for the next big Scandinavian author to promote and turn into John Grisham. They seem to have settled on Mankell, who is already quite popular and has sold over 30 million books, translated into many different languages.
But, like most celebrated Scandinavian crime writers, Mankell is far left and openly hateful of Israel. Mankell was aboard the HAMAS flotilla to Gaza, last May, meant to provoke and injure Israeli soldiers, and yet Israel stupidly still allows him within its borders. The guy should be behind bars. Mankell repeatedly calls for sanctions against Israel. And he’s called Israel “apartheid” in an anti-Semitic op-ed he wrote in the Swedish Aftonbladet newspaper.
Recently, Mankell said he wanted to block his books from being translated into Hebrew, even though his books are best-sellers in Israel. Sadly, I don’t think that happened, and foolish Israelis continue to buy this modern-day Nazi’s books. Mankell’s books also sell in the United Arab Emirates and other Muslim countries, where Israelis and Jews with Israeli stamps on their passports are banned, as are their books. Israel, for example, could not have any of its authors participate in the Abu Dhabi book fair, where the real apartheid goes on and where such apartheid allowed Mankell to hold court. Apparently, Judenrein ain’t a problem for this self-professed scholar in apartheid.
Mankell’s own country, Sweden, is already overrun with Muslims threatening and caught trying to carry out Islamic terrorist attacks on his own fellow countrymen. Most of those attacks are meant to silence Swedish newspapers (for reprinting the Danish Mohammed cartoons) and others trying to enjoy the same speech rights that made Mankell wealthy beyond his wildest dreams. And that’s not to mention the fact that Jews must leave their homes in Malmo to escape Muslim violence, and Israeli tennis players must play to an empty stadium under heavy guard to avoid Islamic terrorism. That’s not apartheid??? But instead of speaking out against that and against those who’ve overrun his own home, he’s out aiding and abetting the same Islamic terrorists who do their bidding on behalf of HAMAS in Israel. When the Muslims finally take over Sweden completely–which really isn’t that far off in the future–Mankell will be among the rest of the slaughtered infidels, treated no better for his treasonous bidding on their behalves.
Henning Mankell, this idiotic pan-Islamic socialist, is already a multi-millionaire. Let him give his money to the “poor, downtrodden” Palestinians. In the meantime, when it comes to his books, print and electronic, keep your pocketbooks and wallets shut.
In the past, I’ve written about anti-Israel authors crime and mystery novelists who put their politics on the page, including John Le Carre and Richard North Patterson. I suspect that, soon, even Detective Wallander won’t escape the stink of his creator, the sleazy Henning Mankell.
*** UPDATE: I forgot to mention (and have added above) that there is true Judenrein apartheid in Mankell’s own country of Sweden, as I’ve noted in the recent past on this site, the Jews of Malmo, who’ve been forced to leave their homes to survive Muslim violence there, and that’s not to mention the Israeli tennis team that had to play to an empty stadium under heavy guard to avoid violence from Sweden’s Muslims.
What would Europe have been without Islamic culture? Nothing.
What an idiot! Yup, said with a straight face. Send him with a one way ticket to Gaza and drop him there.
