German Soccer Fans Serenade Israeli Player With "Racist Insults And Nazi Salutes"

"[Kaiserslautern striker Itay Shechter] was subjected to a verbal racist attack while training with his German league club on Sunday, when a group of between five and 10 fans in a crowd of at least 100 chanted anti-Semitic slogans. They also gave the Nazi salute, which is banned in Germany.

'We are horrified by the anti-Semitic and racist acts aimed at Itay Shechter,' said the Israeli embassy in a statement. 'We have every confidence in the German authorities and are confident that the perpetrators of these acts will be brought before the courts as quickly as possible.'" [The Local] (H/T Tomuban)
