Attack on British Soccer Fans in France Appears to be Anti-Semitic

JewishPress Logo

Fans of the British soccer team the Tottenham Spurs were targeted by an apparent anti-Semitic attack at a pub in Lyon, France. The Spurs traditionally have had a large Jewish support base in London, which is sometimes referred to as the “Yid Army.”

Some 50 attackers entered the Smoking Dog on Wednesday night making a Nazi salute before smashing doors and throwing chairs and other objects.

There were about 150 Spurs fans in the pub, which is popular with British expatriates in France, according to the British newspaper The Guardian. Three Spurs fans were injured. A Lyon newspaper described the attackers as skinheads, the newspaper reported.

Tottenham was scheduled to play Olympique Lyonnais in a Europa League game on Thursday.

In November, some 50 assailants wielding cobblestones, metal bars and knives attacked British Spurs’ fans and trashed a pub in Rome’s Campo de’ Fiori square. One British fan was stabbed in the incident.

  1. ….and the police did what?

  2. Alan Kardon says:

    Why did so many Americans have to die on Normandy Beach so that this garbage could survive?

  3. if the attackers were stabbed and shot in their vacant heads, the cowards wouldn't ever do that again. not to Jews, for sure. I say, start killing them. why wait.

  4. Maybe the ADL would finally like to start taking some action instead of sucking up to the powers that be.

  5. In Eastern Europe this makes sense. Were these not Algerians?
