US producer Ami Horowitz travelled to the Swedish capital to examine the effects of Muslim migration in the country. But after entering the Husby area of the city, he claims he was immediately set upon by a gang of Muslim men who took objection to him filming.
UK Daily Mail A sound recording captures the moment he says he was set upon in an ‘unprovoked attack’ before being dragged off to a nearby building.
Horowitz can be heard asking ‘How come it’s a problem to film here?’ before an unidentified man answers: ‘I don’t want to be filmed.’ When Horowitz asks why, the men start talking in Arabic before the film-maker is apparently grabbed – despite demonstrating he is not filming anything.
Horowitz, from Los Angeles, feared he was going to be ‘finished off’ before someone entered the property, scaring off his attackers. They repeatedly punched, kicked and choked me, as a number of bystanders watched. Eventually they dragged me into a building, which at the time I assumed was to finish me off.
‘Once inside the apartment building vestibule, they resumed their vicious attack. But seconds later someone opened an apartment door directly above us, and it luckily spooked them enough to run away.’
Horowitz, who also made a documentary called UN Me criticising the United Nations, said he told police about the attack but that he was told that nothing could be done. Horowitz said he travelled to Sweden to determine the accuracy of reports that so-called no-go zones had formed in major cities.
He said Sweden had taken in ‘more refugees from Islamic countries over the past several years, per capita, than any other Western country’. ‘These actions also happen to be a great source of pride among Swedes for doing something that one could only characterize as a selfless act of humanity.’
