  • The match was took place on Sunday April 5th,the chants range from [Hamas,hamas, jews to the gas] to the very sick;[ my father was with the commandos, my mother with the SS together they burned Jews because Jews burn best].
    It is obvious that the match could have been stopped by the referee or the soccer clubs.Apparently this fascist chanting is obviously tolerated by the KNVB the Royal Dutch Soccer Association.
    FC Utrecht whose supporters chanted these horrific chants should be suspended for a very long time from the competition and pay a large fine. American Jewish sportsmen could voice their disgust at info@fcutrecht.nl to the attention of the Press spokesman Martin Versteeg.
    An travel boycott by American Jews to the Netherlands would certainly be appreciated by Dutch Jews.Perhaps the offenders, when found, should take a mandatory trip financed by FC Utrecht to Auschwitz to understand the gravity of those chants but only after they serve a bit of jail time
