The incident took place when a group of eight Israelis, including two soldiers on leave, arrived at Germany’s O2 stadium for a Beyonce concert. The group managed to arrive early and succeeded in seating themselves in the first row, to the dismay of local German fans.
According to two Israelis in the group, 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!'”
