Anti-Jewish Hatred in German Soccer Stadium

Some "fans" of soccer Club FC Cottbus reportedly displayed the banner pictured below during the game against Dynamo Dresden on Monday, December 5, 2005 (Read more about the game here). It says "Jews", with the D of the German word "Juden" being represented by the emblem of Dynamo Dresden. But no need to worry: As my friend the Young Socialist explained to me recently, Anti-Semitism really is not a pressing problem in Germany. The greater and all-embracing threat is Islamophobia. Boy, what a relieve. (Hattip: Alex)

Update on December 8, 2005: Endi had the story first. Also read this related article in Süddeutsche Zeitung.
