Axel - You people crack me up. It was funny, but not that funny. Showing your colors a bit, eh? This is a guy who makes his living playing soccer in Israel... he has fans there. Some came to Germany to see him play. That in and of itself is something you, as a German, should be proud of. This isn't 1939, and it's not 1972. This player wants to honor the fans from a place where he is very popular. What is the big deal? Even if it were poor form (and I don't agree), what is the big offense? And if the same thing happened in reverse (a Ghanain player with a pro career in Palestine, widely popular there, with a contingency of fans following him to the World Cup), I doubt many of us "enthusiastic Jews" - and even the non-Jews that you are calling Jews on this thread, would be too upset about it. Here's a little assignment for you. Read the guidelines on this site for responding, and try to imagine the Arab press enforcing that! Learn a little tolerance and get a life.
