    Thumbs Up Swedish minister Anna Lindh dies after stabbing

    Swedish Foreign Minister Anna Lindh has died in hospital from stab wounds inflicted while she was shopping in a department store in the centre of Stockholm.


    Mrs Lindh, who suffered wounds to the chest, stomach and arms in the attack, spent most of the night in surgery as doctors tried unsuccessfully to save her life.

    "During the operation it was confirmed that there was severe internal bleeding from a wound to the liver and several large blood vessels in the abdomen," a hospital statement said.

    Mrs Lindh, a prominent figure in the pro-European currency campaign in Sweden and one of the country's most popular politicians, was attacked by an unknown assailant.

    Campaign suspended

    Sweden's Prime Minister Goran Persson described the stabbing as an "attack on our open society" that caused him "great anger and dismay".

    It came only days before Swedes are due to vote in a referendum on whether to join the euro. Mrs Lindh had been vigorously campaigning for a Yes vote.

    In the wake of the incident, both the Yes and No campaigns suspended their activities.

    Mrs Lindh had been shopping unaccompanied by bodyguards when the attack took place at about 1600 local time (1400GMT) on Wednesday.

    She was carried from the Nordiska Kompaniet store on a stretcher.

    "She lay on the floor and it looked as if a tall man, wearing a peaked cap, was hitting her," eyewitness Hanna Sundberg said.

    "But when he ran away, he threw away a knife."

    Camouflage jacket

    Police were said to be searching for a man wearing a camouflage jacket who fled from the store.

    "There is nothing pointing at a political motive right now," said police spokesman Bjoern Pihlblad.

    However, security has been tightened around government buildings.

    Mrs Lindh, 46, had been foreign minister since 1998. She was married with two children.

    Attacks on Swedish politicians are rare. A notable exception was the assassination of the then Prime Minister, Olof Palme, in 1986.

    Mr Palme was shot dead as he walked home with his wife in Stockholm.

    The killing has never formally been solved, although a man cleared of the crime later wrote to a newspaper confessing.

    I have strong suspicions that it might be a black man... but let's get clarity before making a final judgement. I think it was mentioned in one report that it was a "hooded" man - something that the blacks like to do.

    Witnesses said it was a "peaked cap". That seems to me to be an semi-accurate description of the arab equivalent or a yarmulke.

    Bullshit. Lundh was the only European critic of Sharon as well as Bush. The only group interested in her death is the Zionists.

    By the way, the assassin was described as Nordic by eyewitnesses and caught on camera in the supermarket.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    Swedish FM Dies Of Stab Wounds After Attack

    Lindh was a heavyweight politician in Sweden and tipped to succeed Goeran Persson as prime minister

    Additional Reporting By Yahia Abu Zakariya, IOL Correspondent

    STOCKHOLM, September 11 (IslamOnline.net & News Agencies) - Swedish Foreign Minister Anna Lindh, a key advocate of the Palestinian cause and boycott of Israel, died of hear wounds on Thursday, September 11, a day after she was stabbed by unknown assailant in Stockholm.

    Lindh had been stabbed in the arm, abdomen and chest while shopping at a downtown department store.

    But she died following massive internal bleeding caused by her injuries at Karolinka at 0329 GMT, Karolinska hospital told Agence France-Presse (AFP).

    There is no information on the attacker, but reports said the attacker is of Swedish features and in his 30s or 40s, said IslamOnline.net correspondent.
    Government officials had previously described Lindh's condition as critical, but not life-threatening. Her liver had been damaged in the attack, causing internal bleeding.

    The attack on Lindh, who was without a bodyguard when attacked, brought back memories of the assassination of former prime minister Olof Palme, who was a key supporter of the Palestinian cause, as he was leaving a cinema in downtown Stockholm in 1986 .

    The Swedish intelligence opened investigations into Lindh’s killing, which shocked politicians in the calm European country, most of them are moving with no security guards.

    It has also sparked debate on whether Swedish top politicians are well enough protected.

    Lindh was a heavyweight politician in Sweden and tipped to succeed Goeran Persson as prime minister.

    She was also a high-profile campaigner for Swedish euro membership, but her death casts a shadow over Sunday's Swedish referendum on the single currency, fueling speculation that the vote could even be called off.

    Lindh was known for her criticism of Israeli oppressive practices against the Palestinians, and had earlier blasted the Israeli army's extrajudicial executions of Palestinians.

    Palestinians are humiliated daily at Israeli roadblocks," she said in a statement, sparking the Israeli government’s scathing condemnation of her situation.

    In June2002 ,the youth wing of the Swedish Social Democrats, of which Lindh was a member, has pressed charges against hawkish Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon of war crimes and violation of international law.

    Lindh said in comments that she understood there was "both bitterness and anger because the Israeli government is guilty of violating international law."

    ‘Shocked’

    Lindh’s death shocked the European countries over the loss of a politician of a defiant mettle.

    "It is with great sorrow that I received the news that Anna Lindh has died of the injuries she suffered," Swedish Prime Minister Goeran Persson told reporters.

    "It feels unreal, it is hard to understand," said Persson, his voice cracking with emotion.

    Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he was "deeply moved and shocked by the brutal murder" of his Swedish counterpart.

    "It is deeply tragic that we have lost Anna Lindh in such a futile manner," Rasmussen said in a statement, noting that the Swedish minister was a "competent, respected and committed representative of Sweden".

    "This murder moves us deeply. Violence should never be an instrument in the political life of our free and democratic countries," he said.

    French President Jacques Chirac expressed his "very great sadness and dismay" over losing Lindh.

    The French foreign ministry also paid tribute to Lindh's "European engagement... as well as her determined activity as the head of Swedish diplomacy."

    "In these sad circumstances, the French authorities send their heartfelt condolences to his majesty the King of Sweden as well as the Swedish government," the statement from the foreign ministry said.

    "True European"

    The European parliament paid tribute to Lindh, observing a few moments' silence in her memory after she died following a knife attack.

    "We will seek to maintain her commitment to European affairs. Let it be an example to us all," said German Social Democrat Christa Randzio-Plath, chairman of the parliament's economic and monetary affairs committee.
    The committee heard the news as it prepared for a hearing with French central bank chief Jean-Claude Trichet, who is expected to become the next head of the European Central Bank (ECB).

    E.U. foreign policy chief Javier Solana expressed shock at the death, calling Lindh a "true European."

    British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw expressed "shock and condolences" following the death which he described as “appalling”.

    German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer paid an emotional tribute to Lindh, whom he said she was a “great European, a great foreign minister and also a very good friend”.

    Austrian Foreign Minister Benita Ferrero-Waldner said she was saddened and distraught at the death Thursday of her Swedish.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    Who Killed Anna Lindh?

    By Yehia Abu Zakariya, IOL Stockholm Correspondent

    STOCKHOLM, September 14 (IslamOnline.net) – Sweden and Europe have lost an unparalleled political personality. Swedish Foreign Minister Anna Lindh was not only a diplomatic figure who perfected political relationships and reconciliation between international foes, but she managed to a great extent to add a humanitarian aspect to all situations.

    Lindh supported the weak all along against international arrogance of power. She strongly opposed the U.S. wars on Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Swedish Prime Minister Ian Carlson has appointed the Minister of Immigration and International Trade a successor to Lindh who was stabbed to death while shopping in a large Stockholm store.

    Sharon A Maniac, Bush A Fool

    Lindh defied Israeli Premier Ariel Sharon more than once and described him as a maniac. She declared on the official Swedish TV channel that she will boycott Israeli goods and fruits, sold in Swedish markets.

    The Swedish Foreign Minister also defied Denmark when it decided to abuse refugees of the third world. She supported the Afghans whom Australia refused to receive and declared her readiness to interfere in order to settle disputes between North and South Koreas.

    Furthermore, Lindh described U.S. President George W. Bush as a fool due to his arrogance and the U.S. deterrence of Europe to follow the American example.
    She knew a lot about the Arab and Islamic worlds and media, including IslamOnline.net.

    When Washington and Tel Aviv limited their dealings with former Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen, Lindh said that the U.S. and Israel gave Abu Mazen “the kiss of death”, by which she meant political death for the ME peace process.

    Lindh represented the future of Sweden, as she was almost certain to become the future Prime Minister. She believed in cultural and religious dialogue and held a great conference in Stockholm on Europe and Islam, and invited several Islamic figures from all parts of the world.

    Some of those figures were accused of being radical at home but Lindh believed greatly in the necessity of dialogue among all peoples and all factions.

    When Mohamed Ghazali, a Swedish, was detained by the U.S. security agencies in Pakistan and moved to Guantanamo, Lindh sent a high-ranking delegation to request Washington for his immediate release, particularly that Washington had no evidence whatsoever against him.

    Such brave stances gained her respect among different Swedish political parties as well as Arab and Muslim communities in Sweden. Furthermore, all European officials respected her.

    Who Killed Anna Lindh?

    It is worth noting that the Swedish former Premiere Olouf Balmeh, assassinated in February1986 , was also anti-U.S. policies. He demonstrated in front of the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm and talked scornfully about Richard Nixon in some of his notes. His killer is still unknown and at large.

    When the killer is ambiguous, this means he is very professional and cunning. Lindh’s killer disappeared although the Swedish security agencies are known for their cleverness.

    Media and political agencies in Stockholm wonder about the implications of Lindh’s death. They ask about the video cameras of the shopping malls where Lindh was shopping. Such cameras should have shot the killer while performing his crime.

    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    Looks like she put herself inbetween one too many fights. One is bound to get hit sooner or later. I suspect it was the Zionists, they don't value human life, except their own.

    Mel Gibson might have ended up the same way if he didn't change his movie. When he said they would kill him if he didn't edit his movie, he wasn't joking.
