British soccer club removes Rosh Hashanah tweet

A British soccer team deleted a message from its Twitter account wishing Jewish fans a happy new year after the tweet sparked a torrent of anti-Semitic abuse. Liverpool Football Club posted the message on Friday, the second day of Rosh Hashanah, which read: “Liverpool FC would like to wish all our Jewish supporters around the world a happy new year. #RoshHashanah.” But the club took it down just hours later following complaints over numerous anti-Semitic responses. The incident follows a dramatic spike in anti-Semitic hate crimes in the UK in the wake of Israel’s defensive operation against Gaza terrorists, which has left the British Jewish community feeling shaken.
