Anti-Semites Blamed For Rome Soccer Attack

Source: NY Times

LONDON — A brutal attack in Rome on fans of the Tottenham Hotspurs soccer team, a London club with strong Jewish connections, has been blamed on anti-Semites.

Ten fans were injured on Thursday, one seriously, when a gang of around 50 stormed a bar in the Italian capital, wielding baseball bats, knives and broken bottles ahead of a Europa League match against Lazio, a Rome team.

The assault was immediately linked to Lazio’s notoriously troublesome fans, the Ultras, although team officials denied its supporters were involved.

As the police in Rome were reported to have arrested two local men on suspicion of attempted homicide, officials were pursuing the theory that anti-Semitism was behind what appeared to be an organized attack.

2. THEY'RE BACK! The insecure bigots who have to pick on Jews and

people of color and women and anyone they can identify as inferior to them (in their view) without too much thought. This is how they make themselves feel important. No doubt Jews are not the only group they pick on. But the anti-Semitism is a recurring movement in history. It just never ends.

5. Which has nothing to do with the article in the OP.

Why the need to discuss Gaza in a thread where Jews were the victims?

6. While I do mourn the dead in Gaza...I agree with Aegis(yes, that had to happen ONCE)

that bringing that into this thread is inappropriate and wrong.
