‘Peace in our time?’ Peace of the grave per­haps, cer­tainly not one to be cel­e­brated

Thank you for last Fri­day’s cover story (“The bat­tle for Europe,” April 5). I found the ar­ti­cles on Europe very in­for­ma­tive, well worth my time. YOSEF WOLICKI Beit Shemesh

I en­joyed reading Gol Kalev’s ar­ti­cle on Europe. In Swe­den, I’d say we more iden­tify our­selves as Swedish and Scan­di­na­vians. I had to think twice when Kalev wrote about the Euro­peans in­vad­ing 2,300 years ago – up here in North­ern Europe we don’t think of that as Europe in­vad­ing but rather as Ro­mans in­vad­ing; the Ro­man Em­pire never reached Scan­di­navia, and we don’t think of the things that south­ern European or mid­dle Euro­peans did as “Euro­peans.”

Swe­den has also only been part of the EU the last 20 years. And as in Wales, we’ve never liked Brussels telling about the sizes of cu­cum­bers.

In Isa­iah it says Is­rael is a light for the na­tions! Re­gard­less if the na­tions ad­mit it or not .... ULRIKA JOSEF­S­SON Öre­bro, Swe­den
