Israelis Report Anti-Semitism at Berlin Concert

Israelis attending a Beyonce concert in Berlin over the weekend were met with anti-Semitic chants from the audience, the Yisrael Hayom newspaper reported on Sunday.

The incident took place when a group of eight Israelis, including two soldiers on leave, arrived at Germany’s O2 stadium for the concert.

The group managed to arrive early and succeeded in seating themselves in the first row, to the dismay of local German fans, reported Yisrael Hayom.

Two Israelis in the group told the newspaper that the Germans yelled slurs at them and shoved them.

“They yelled ‘dirty Jews’ and ‘go back to Israel,’ and pushed us to the ground,” one of the Israelis said. “At one point when they saw we did not want to leave [the front row] some 50 people began to chant, ‘Go! Go!’”
