Löfven, nordic social democrats, toughen stance on Israel over Gaza fighting
With the conflict in Gaza escalating, the pressure on politicians here in Sweden to take a clear stand - either way - is rising. Leader of the Social Democrats, Stefan Löfven has received a lot of flak over a number of rather unexpected comments and statements in the past two weeks. Not the least because some of them seemed to go against the regular Social Democratic stance on the issue. This weekend, he, along with Social Democratic leaders in Norway, Finland and Iceland, issued a statement calling for an international military presence in Gaza, and a boycott of goods produced by Israeli settlers on the West Bank. Ulf Bjereld, a member of the social Democrats and political scientist at Gothenburg University, weighed in on how the party`s position on the issue has evolved over the years. Reporter: Ylva Mossing.
