Left party leader Lars Ohly is wrong to criticise Israel, says a conservative Moderate politicians. At the weekend former Communist Ohly called for Israel to be treated like apartheid South Africa and said that there should be a trade embargo against Israel until the country stopped its policies against the Palestinians.

But now Gunnar Hökmark, Member of the European Parliament, Moderate and also leader of the Swedish-Israeli association says to TV 4 News that Ohly is aiming at the wrong target, and that compared to other countries in the Middle East, such as Saudi Arabia, Iran and Syria, Israel is a beacon of democracy.
