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:

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
