(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Swedish journalist Peter Lindgren conducted a social experiment by dressing up as a Jew and documenting the responses of local residents in the Swedish city of Malmo, which is known for its large immigrant and Muslim populations.

Over the course of a week, wearing a kippah and a Star of David, Lindgren documented anti-Semitic remarks and threats. The Swedish reporter was called a “dirty Jew” and a “dirty Jewish pig” on camera.

While sitting at a cafe, he  documented one of the patrons calling him a “Jewish shit.” He was also warned by the local residents to leave town, with one person saying, “You shouldn’t stay here.”
