Antisemitism at Spurs/Lazio football match

23 Nov 2012 by CST

The Community Security Trust and Maccabi GB are appalled at the violent antisemitism directed at Spurs fans in Rome this week.

Reports from Italy strongly suggest that the assault on a group of Spurs fans on Thursday was a politically-motivated attack by far right football hooligans who shouted antisemitic abuse at their victims.

There are also reports that Lazio fans chanted “Juden Tottenham” ( ‘Jewish Tottenham’) during the game.

It is unacceptable for football fans to be confronted with antisemitism when attending a match, wherever this takes place, and we call on the Rome authorities and UEFA to take meaningful action to ensure that this does not happen again.

“"The Guardian of Israel doesn't slumber or sleep". This feeling of safety and security that we search for and need is gratefully appreciated when it's given to us by the CST. It really is a pleasure to work with the CST and to be looked after and cared for by them. Where ever I go throughout Britain, in all our Synagogues from north to south the impact and help given by the CST is warmly valued.”
