Sweden: Man beaten with iron for flying Israeli flag

Update via Jüdische Allgemeine: The man attacked was a pro-Israel Kurd. He says the flag has been hanging in his window for two years.  He thinks he was attacked due to anti-Iran comments he made on Facebook.

A man in Seved, Malmö, was attacked on Sunday in what police suspected was a hate crime. 
The incident occurred shortly before midnight on Sunday when the man displayed an Israeli flag from his window, sources to newspaper Sydsvenskan said. The man reportedly exchanged words with men on the street after hanging the flag, and left his apartment. 
Police said he was then assaulted by around ten people with iron pipes and chased from the building. The man managed to escape his attackers and was found by police on a nearby street. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
