MAN BEATEN FOR FLY­ING IS­RAELI FLAG

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

A KUR­DISH man was at­tacked by a mob on Sun­day night af­ter hang­ing an Is­raeli flag from the win­dow of his apart­ment. Ismail Babak, 38, was lured into a side street in Malmö, south­ern Swe­den, af­ter con­fronting the van­dals. Up to a dozen men at­tacked him with glass bot­tles and iron bars, he said. Po­lice, who ques­tioned him be­fore he was taken to hospi­tal, may in­ves­ti­gate the in­ci­dent as a hate crime.

Mr Babak said: “I don’t want to take the flag down. If it’s not pos­si­ble­to­keep it in my win­dow, I will tat­too the Is­raeli flag on my body.”
