Fans were told, “No Jewish Flags” and some claim the police were afraid of potential “Palestinian violence” from the Arab community that lives nearby, according to a JPost report.

On Monday, the Berlin police apologized. Klaus Kandt, Berlin’s chief of police also claimed the police officer thought the Israeli flag was being waved as a prohibited political statement.
