From LPH Info:(French)

As part of the second round of playoffs of the Europa League football, Racing Club Strasbourg hosts on Thursday night team Maccabi Haifa.

In a highly questionable decision, the Strasbourg police imposed restrictions on supporters of the Israeli team, "for the sake of their safety and due to fears of violence from local elements". On Wednesday already, the Strasbourg police had announced some exceptional measures: absolute prohibition for supporters of Haifa to walk in the parks and public spaces from noon until the day after the match; the obligation for them to move only in the vicinity of the stadium of Meinau, and limiting to 600 of the number of Haifa supporters admitted to the stadium.

And Thursday morning, the Strasbourg police issued a new restriction: the absolute prohibition to brandish flags of Israel in the perimeter of the stadium and throughout the city.

This unprecedented decision prompted a reaction by the Israeli ambassador to France Aliza Bin-Noun who wrote on her Twitter account: "The demonstrations for the boycott and the BDS are allowed in Strasbourg in the name of the freedom of expression, but the authorities forbid supporters of Maccabi Haifa to brandish flags of Israel. What hypocrisy! This is unacceptable! "
Let's rephrase the police position:

"Hey, we have a lot of Jew-haters and Muslims in our town. They are animals who cannot control themselves. Best act as if you are in a zoo where gorillas are trained to attack you if they see a Star of David or hear Hebrew."

UPDATE: The flag ban has been lifted before the game. (h/t Tomer, see comments)

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
