Egyptian journalist films his walk around Cairo dressed as a Jew

The journalist was faced with two types of citizens with some ignoring him and others more understanding

Published: Updated:

An Egyptian journalist dressed up as an ultra-Orthodox Jew and walked in the streets of Cairo to gage the public’s reaction.

In the first part of the video, the journalist, who was dressed in a black suit, skullcap, and donned a beard and hat, appeared asking locals for directions to the “Jewish synagogue.”

The journalist was faced with two types of answer; some ignored him, while others were more understanding.

One person even advised the disguised journalist to put a paper he was holding, on which Hebrew words were apparently scribbled down, in his pocket and not show it to anybody.

Later in the video, the man removes the coat and beard and walks around with a black kippah and a white buttoned-down shirt to prompt even more reactions.

Cairo-based news website DOTMSR posted the video of their journalist online.
