Sweden: Taxi drivers refuse to take rabbi

Rav Eliyahu Birenboim writes of his experience in Sweden (translation mine):

"About a year ago I came out of the airport in Malmo, Sweden, a city known for its large Muslim population.  A lot of taxis were waiting in the station. Every time I asked to board a taxi to get to the rabbi's house, the taxi driver looked at my kippah and told me angrily "it's occupied".  I quickly understood that the Muslim drivers don't want to drive a Jewish man. I gave up on going in a taxi and boarded the metro.
