Malmö: Jews march against antisemitism
Islam in Europe
A small group of Jews marched in Malmö last Saturday against antisemitism. The Jews walked the kilometer from the synagogue to Malmö's Triangle square wearing kippahs and Stars of Davids.
Fredrik Sieradzki, spokesperson for the Jewish community, said it was not a demonstration as such, but that they walked with Jewish symbols to show that they don't accept the antisemitic trends in Malmö. This was the first time that the Jewish community decided to show that they don't accept the current situation. The walk was the idea of a community member, and information about it was spread by word of mouth, which might explain why just 14 people joined.
In October Världen idag reported the story of Rabbi Shneur Kesselman, who says he's harassed almost every day. It's unusual for the 'normal' Jew to be harassed like that, and Fredrik Sieradzki himself says he's never experienced something like that. But this doesn't mean that it doesn't happen.
