One comment on the social media site was aimed at QPR’s Moroccan star Adel Taraabt, questioning how he could "live playing alongside a Jew," and the club have since issued a statement stating that they will be banning anyone who "posts anti-Semitic comments."

Meanwhile, Tottenham fans – many of whom are known to be Jewish – were subjected to chants of "Juden Tottenham, Juden Tottenham" during their Europa League game with Italian side Lazio in November, while a banner entitled "Free Palestine" was also unveiled during the match.
Prior to the game, one Spurs fan was stabbed and a further nine were injured after an attack by dozens of knife-wielding fans from rival team AS Roma, who reportedly had links to a far-right organization.
Just days later, former West Ham loan star Yossi Benayoun expressed his dismay after their Premier League game with Spurs, after Hammers fans chanted anti-Semitic phrases and hissed on several occasions to mock the gassing of Jews during the World War II.
