Jewish man mobbed outside Marseille for wearing Jewish symbol [View all]

Source: JTA

A young Jewish man reportedly was lynched and mugged outside Marseille’s main train station for wearing a Star of David pendant.

According to La Provence, a local daily, the 20-year-old man was approached by two men on a scooter on Feb. 4 at 3:30 P.M. outside Saint-Charles, a busy train station and shopping mall.

One of the men on the scooter tore the golden chain off the victim’s neck, called him a “dirty Jew” and fled the scene on the scooter with the pendant in hand.

A group of young men standing by the victim then approached him, hurled anti-Semitic insults at him and looked through his belonging for other things to steal. According to Metro, another daily paper, they also hit the victim. They took away an MP3 player and 100 euros.
