(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Swedish journalist Petter Ljunggren 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 numerous anti-Semitic remarks and threats, including being called a "f***ing Jewish swine," as translated from Swedish. He was also warned by the local residents to leave town.
