JTA — The municipality of Lodz said it would boycott a Polish soccer club due to “the anti-Semitic and offensive behavior” of its fans.
A video uploaded to the fan site of the LKS soccer club, LKSfans.pl, showed fans throwing ninja blades at a picture of a Jew painted on the wall of a sports club run by the Lodz Municipal Sport and Recreation Center. Scrawled on the wall was a slogan asking fans to pay 2 zloty for “three throws at the Jew.”
The city of Lodz has decided “to never rent out the hall again for this type of event,” said Marcin Maslowski, a spokesman for Lodz’s mayor, according to Gazeta Wyborcza.
