Spain: Israeli flags not allowed in Real Madrid stadium

Israeli flag - not allowed

Lebanese flag - no problem

Israeli fans of Real Madrid were told they couldn't bring in Israeli flags into the team's Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.

After the three fans photographed themselves with the flag, as did many other international fans,they put it away.  But then they were approached by a stadium employee and told they'll have to hand the flag over.   They never got it back.

The employee in question told them it was Real Madrid policy, which he did not agree with.  When contacted, Real Madrid said it's checking into the matter.
