A woman was beaten by a group of Muslims, because she was seen in public wearing a Star of David necklace, the World Zionist Organization said.
40-year-old Anna Sjogren said that she was walking in Uppsala, a city populated by Muslims, when a Muslim girl saw that she was wearing the Star of David around her neck
She hurled insults at Sjogren, and spat in her face. Uppsala is the fourth largest city in Sweden after Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo.
A group of Muslims surrounded her and one of the attackers signaled her to shut up or be killed. Then someone threw a sharp object at her face.
“I’m not sure who it was, but many people wore the hijab or scarves in the colors of the Palestinian flag. Witnesses said that I tripped and nobody hurt me. It’s just unbelievable,” Sjogren said.
Sjogren jaw was severely damaged, and she suffered swollen eyes and injuries all over her body. She said that she is too afraid of filing a police complaint.
