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.

On behalf of everyone here let me thank all the staff and volunteers who work so hard together with the Police and the wider community to protect the Jewish people and to make this charity as successful as it is today.I believe CST is a model for all our communities in Britain.”
