Malmö, Sweden, is something of a perfect example of how on the streets and side roads of Europe, anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism go hand in hand, and are tied to violence. There’s also frequently a marriage of convenience between Islamists and Leftists, united in hatred of Israel.

We have covered the situation in Malmö many times:

The latest from Malmö is that a man was beaten with metal pipes for hanging an Israeli flag in his window:

A 38-year-old man in southern Sweden was assaulted on Sunday night after hanging an Israeli flag from his window, with police suspecting it is a hate crime.

The incident occurred in Seved, Malmö, shortly before midnight on Sunday when the man displayed an Israeli flag from his window, sources told newspaper Sydsvenskan. The man reportedly exchanged words with men on the street after hanging the flag, and left his apartment.

Before the assault the man’s window had been smashed where the flag of Israel had been hung….

Police said he was then assaulted by around ten people with iron pipes and chased from the building. The man managed to escape his attackers and was found by police on a nearby street. He was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
