The embassy says this makes it difficult for Sweden to act as a mediator in the region.

   In Israel, a religious political party leader and others are labeling the decision ”anti-semitic,” while some Israeli critics are also recalling last year’s visit by the Swedish minister of foreign assistance, when she denounced the wall isolating the Palestinians.
