Stares and Abuse: Irishman Dons Kippa for a Day In Sweden
An Irish journalist reporting in Malmo, Sweden, carried out an experiment to see what it would be like to be 'a Jew' for a day. He donned a kippah (head covering) and walked around the Swedish town to see what would happen next.
During the day, Patrick Reilly, who has lived in Malmo for two years, was shocked by cold hard stares, and threatening looks he received.
On Monday, he spoke to Arutz Sheva's Tamar Yona, about his harrowing day and saying "he was relieved when the day was over and he could take off the kippah."
