Fans of the Liverpool Football Club bring the anti-Semitic hate

The Liverpool Football Club was forced to delete a tweet last night after daring to wish its Jewish fans a happy Rosh Hashanah:

Liverpool fans so abhorrent in their racist responses that @LFC have now deleted this tweet. Anti-Semitism is rife.

Here are a few of the anti-Semitic and hateful responses that prompted Liverpool to delete its “happy new year” message:

@LFC @LFC_Arabic @Officiallfc_id @PakistanLFC @MalaysiaLFC Why did you take off the Happy Jewish New Year tweet? Did you let racism win?

— Joel Kleinberg (@Joelinhorito) September 26, 2014

Yes, racism won.

@LFC When you deleted this you did not only turn back against Millions of Jewish fans, but also against the Israelis WHO PLAYED for the club
