Not surprised. In several visits to Sicily, I saw “Juden Raus,” graffitted on to several buildings. A disgusting sight, I must admit.

I didn’t know the Brits were holding any muzzie fags hostage. This is flat weird.

We are starting to see the birth pangs of the world turning on Israel....as foretold in the book of Revelations....

I never thought it would occur in my lifetime....but with America now starting down that road...it now is only a matter of time before she is alone in the world...

The take away: Europe is dying and they play soccer, too.

So where are those famous British soccer hooligans when you really need them? Didn’t a bunch of them massacre a bunch of Italian fans some years ago?

My family hails from Sicily and Freepers should remember Lazio is the most F’d up, racist soccer team in the Serie A. You wear a Roma shirt when they are playing, and you’ll end up a corpse eventually.

The last time Europe died was during the last days of the ancient Roman Empire. Yesterday it was bread and circuses and today it is soccer and anti-Semitism.

Maybe it’s just been a long day, but... Am I understanding this story correctly?

Fans from London were in Rome cheering a Rome soccer club (playing against an English soccer club), and these Rome fans from London rolled out the anti-Semitic banner...?

I take it back, white males are not the only global public enemy number one.

Right now it’s neck and neck with the Jews. At least we’re in good company.

For those who don’t know the area of London represented by Tottenham Hotspurs F.C. has for many years been inhabited or associated with Jews. The soccer club itself has many Jewish financial supporters.

One of the many reasons I have always been a proud Tottenham supporter.

Come on you Spurs!

I don’t know where this “Jordan is Palestine” thing came from, but no, they aren’t Arabs in Jordan although they’ve had the Arabic language imposed on them centuries ago. Certainly the “Palestinians” would try to lay claim to them if they got their “one-state solution”, but that land was never theirs.

Nope.

English fans whose team has a partly Jewish identity (they play in a Jewish area of London) were subject to antisemitism from Italian fans (whose team has historical links to fascism).

Ajax Amsterdam is the other famous European club that has strong Jewish support.

So were these Lazio fans actually Italian or were they immigrants to Italy?
