The president of the Jewish community in Rome against Lazio fans: "How long will you ignore?" - Walla! sport


Storm in Italy: Ruth Durgallo tweeted against the ultras organizations of the Blues following anti-Semitic songs and Nazi symbols in the stands

Summary: Lazio - Roma 0:1 (Sport1)

Another stormy derby was held in Rome yesterday (Sunday) and at the end Lazio left with the upper hand, but for the umpteenth time in the Italian media the day after the severe anti-Semitic storm following the behavior of Lazio fans, with an emphasis on the ultras organizations that often hang anti-Semitic signs, use songs with harsh words against Jews and many of them identify as neo-Nazis.

In recent years, a Lazio employee was suspended who was caught saluting with a raised hand, let's recall the anti-Semitic signs that were hung in the city condemning Roma coach Jose Mourinho and on one of them it was written "Yesterday Tottenham, today Roma...tomorrow Maccabi" and about six years ago the Jewish community in Rome claimed that even the president of Lazio himself Desecrates the memory of the Holocaust.

Now, the president of the Jewish community in Rome, Ruth Durgallo, expressed concern about the behavior of Lazio's ultras during the derby.


"The fans behind the goal sing anti-Semitic songs, a 'fan' in the stands wears a shirt that says 'Hitlerson' next to the number 88, but as always we are the only ones who resent and protest. Does it make sense that everyone continues to ignore?", she wrote.

In "Gazzetta dello Sport" they emphasized that these are indeed songs that Lazio fans in the ultras organizations on the north side of the pitch usually sing and that include harsh anti-Semitic expressions.

It is also written that there were cases in which Lazio was punished in the courts following those anti-Semitic chants.
