A university student was recently fined 300 euros for waving an Israeli flag near an anti-Israel demonstration in Germany. The anti-Israel demonstration last January was organized by local Muslim groups to protest Israel’s military incursion into the Gaza Strip in response to Hamas rocket fire. The student and her friends decided to display solidarity with Israel by waving an Israeli flag and holding a banner criticizing anti-Semitism disguised as criticism of Israel. A district court ruled that her actions were an unlawful act of “provocation.” The student intends to appeal the court’s ruling.
