Group Representing European Jews Calls on English and European Soccer Federations to Step Up Efforts to Fight Racism and Antisemitism

FSWC Reports:

From the Associated Press via ynetnews.com:

European Jewish Congress President Moshe Kantor is asking football authorities to strengthen their fight against racism and anti-Semitism in the wake of Nicolas Anelka's controversial goal celebration in a Premier League match.

In a letter sent both to the English Football Association chairman Greg Dyke and UEFA president Michel Platini, Kantor wrote that his organization often receives reports of "attacks on Jews, whether verbal or physical, which also include acts of anti-Semitism at matches involving English and European football clubs."
