Anti-Semitism Sullies Sportsmanship via Twitter

Two days after Maccabi Tel-Aviv won its historic championship Euro League game against Real Madrid, Spanish Twitter users tweeted a most embarrassing anti-Semitic tirade against the winning sports team and against Jews in general.

“Send the Jews to the gas chambers,” they wrote. “I hope the Maccabi players take gas showers after the game. If Hitler was around, this never would have happened…” Euro League Management harshly condemned the anti-Semitic writings.
