About those no-go zones which don’t exist: Swedish reporter assaulted after wearing kippah in Muslim no-go zone of Malmo

A Swedish reporter who walked around the southern Swedish city of Malmo while wearing a kippah to test attitudes toward Jews was hit once and cursed at by passersby before he fled for fear of serious violence.

…One of the people who cursed Ljunggren called him a “Jewish devil,” “Jewish shit” and another told him to “get out.”

One person on a scooter approached Ljunggren to warn him to leave for his own safety. In the heavily Muslim Rosengard neighborhood, Ljunggren was surrounded by a dozen men who shouted anti-Semitic slogans as eggs were hurled at his direction from apartments overhead. He then fled the area.

Karen Armstrong just emailed me to say that this has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. Or Islam. Or anything, really.

UPDATE: also nothing to do etc.: Malmo Synagogue to be fenced in to repel anti-Semites h/t Katewerk
