‘I never implied Swedish FM should be assassinated,’ ex-government official says

A former senior Education Ministry official denied on Tuesday that he implicitly called for the assassination of Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom.

Dr. Zvi Zameret, the former head of the ministry’s pedagogical secretariat, wrote a stinging op-ed in the right-leaning Makor Rishon newspaper on Friday that was harshly critical of Wallstrom.

Sweden’s top diplomat has provoked anger in Israel for her repeated comments criticizing the government and the security forces for what she perceives as a heavy-handed response to Palestinian terrorism.
