Racial Slurs Against Israeli Soccer Player 'Cross Limit'

England’s Chelsea soccer club launched an investigation into claims that Israeli player Yossi Benayoun was the target of anti-Semitic slurs over the weekend made by the team’s own supporters.

Benayoun, 32, was reportedly met with anti-Semitic taunts and chants from a section of the Chelsea fans when he came on as a substitute during the match against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
