Jewish Groups Outraged by European Authorities' Responses to Antisemitism in Soccer

FSWC Reports:

From and

European Jewish Congress President Dr. Moshe Kantor says he is appalled by the lack of reaction by the authorities to recent anti-Semitic incidents in European football, after a municipal prosecutor in the Polish city of Poznan concluded that chants by soccer fans which made reference to Jews going to the Auschwitz gas chambers were not anti-Semitic. 

"Unfortunately, extreme anti-Semitic chants like those in Poznan are regularly heard in many European stadiums, including in England and Holland, and the reaction of the authorities is minimal,” Kantor said. “This coupled with the inaction of the clubs involved, UEFA and the FA in England over the Quenelle, demonstrates that anti-Semitism has become the last acceptable prejudice in football."
