The author contends that although Swedish society perceives itself as containing only marginal forms of antisemitism as manifested in small neo-Nazi groups, in fact Sweden's Arab and Muslim populations are a significant source of antisemitism. The author outlines the state of antisemitism in schools, on the internet, and elsewhere in culture. The author argues that Sweden will be unable to deal with this problem until it acknowledges the existence of the problem.
