A reporter wore a yarmulke and strolled around Paris in a hidden camera video that documented him experiencing a barrage of anti-Semitic verbal abuse and intimidation.
Zvika Klein, of Israeli media outlet NRG, published on Sunday a harrowing account of the experience to accompany a video called “10 Hours of Walking in Paris as a Jew.” His colleague, Dov Belhassen, filmed the walk on a hidden camera. Klein said in his essay that he began to be concerned for his own safety as he left the city’s tourist areas and entered its Muslim-majority neighborhoods.
The video shows at least two people spitting at the sight of him, another calling him a “homo” and a third man walking close by him in a foreboding manner after saying “Jew” in his direction.
One boy whom Klein encountered near a public housing project even asked his mother, “What is he doing here, Mommy? Does he not know he will be killed?”
Klein noted that his team, which also included a bodyguard, later took the advice of two youths and left the neighborhood after receiving physical threats.
