The German-language Bild newspaper, citing an Israeli newspaper, said the 17-year-old, identified only as Yonatan, and his friends were waiting for a train at the Zoologischer Garten Station when he played a song called “Tel Aviv” by an Israeli singer.
According to Yonatan, the Arab men shouted at him: “Hebrew music? For 70 years you are murdering children. Berlin is our city now and here we don’t listen to f—— Jewish music.”
Yonatan said he walked away, telling the men they are free to play Arabic music just as he is free to play Israeli music.
But he and his friends were followed, he said, and one of the Arab men began to threaten him.
“If I had a knife, I would kill you … if I meet you again you are finished,” the man said, according to Yonatan.
Yonatan said that when his two friends tried to intervene, the group attacked. One person was hit in the face and another was injured with a broken bottle, requiring hospital treatment, the Israeli newspaper Hayom reported.
