Below is a very disturbing video of the responses that Zvika Klein, a reporter for Jewish news outlet NRG, received when he walked through streets of Paris wearing a yarmulke and a tzitzit (knotted ritual tassels). The video shows the level of anti-Semitism even in our capital cities around the world.
Klein walked around with a bodyguard while a photographer filmed him with a camera hidden in a backpack.
They film as Klein is called a “dog” and even spat at by people walking by. He walked through Jewish neighborhoods, around the Eiffel Tower, but mostly went through Muslim neighborhoods. He was surprised to receive “belligerent remarks” even in tourist areas, though on the whole they were much better than the Muslim or Arab neighborhoods.
Some comments were particularly shocking like a young boy asking “What is he doing here Mommy? Doesn’t he know he will be killed?”
In truth, I expect that Muslims wearing religious grab face the same type of commentary and attacks in some areas. However, the film captures the deep and growing divide on religion around the world, including the West.
