Swedish BDS activist pretends to be Israeli – WTF

So,  apparently a Swedish BDS activist, who dedicates his spare time to spamming facebook pages of artists trying to convince them to boycott Israel,  is lying about his identity.  As someone who makes a living out of Social media I find it personally insulting that people still work in these copy-paste-spam methods, but that’s not the point.

This is a message he left on Opeth’s Facebook wall, calling them to cancel their upcoming concert in Israel:

Is he israeli? Then why is he managing an all-Swedish facebook profile? And why is his blog in Swedish?

In my opinion, no matter what your ideas and opinions are, impersonating and lying can’t be the way.

Certainly not when you’re claiming to represent a group of people you don’t belong to and speak on their behalf.

Feel the same? Send him a message and let him know what you think of his ‘activism’, giving us all a bad name!

And why not Finnish (lol) with a song?
