German town forbids display of Israeli flag

Tuesday, March 23, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff

The German town of Kassel this week banned the display of the Israeli flag at a political information booth set up by the Coalition Against Anti-Semitism.

Members of the group told Israel National News that town officials insisted they be "considerate" of others and refrain from displaying the Israeli flag if they wanted permission to set up their booth.

Pro-Israel activists have been attacked in Germany before, and the official response has typically been to demand they lower their profile, rather than punish the assailants.

It was noted that the Kassel Municipality has allowed the display of the Iranian flag at recent similar political events, despite the fact that it may be viewed negatively by Israelis and Jews.
