Spain: Jews fear identifying as Jews

I've written before on the difficulties of reporting on a general feeling of hate.  Here's one example:

Lautaro Bejerman, a Jew who lives in Barcelona, says he doesn't walk around with a kippah, to prevent problems.  He thinks the only reason he hasn't suffered from antisemitic incidents is because he's discrete.

He also says that while it's normal to see Muslims displaying religious symbols in Barcelona, it's not normal for Jews to do so.

Bejerman considers himself a liberal leftist, but he says that many leftists have a right-wing fascist streak in them and are anti-Semites, hiding under the umbrella of anti-Zionism.
