‘Bosnian fans stepped on Israeli flag, hurled anti-Jewish chants’

Perhaps Israel national team soccer player Ben Sahar was on to something.

The forward made waves before Friday’s Euro 2016 qualifying match against Bosnia – which Israel proceeded to lose 3-1 – when he said that “the hostile Muslim spectators at the game [in Zenica] will spur us on.”

His comment raised eyebrows, yet it appears that his concerns were well-founded. Pictures emerged of mobs of Bosnian fans stepping on a replica Israeli flag before the match. There were also reports that some extremist fans were chanting anti-Israel and anti-Jewish slogans.
