Italy: ‘It’s Best to Keep Jews Under Control,’ Says Football Federation President

Via Algemeiner:
Italian Football Federation President Carlo Tavecchio is under attack for making antisemitic remarks, Football Italia reported on Sunday.

Tavecchio, known for his tendency to utter racist slurs and then deny he said or meant them, was caught on tape using a derogatory Italian word for Jew – “ebreaccio” – during a conversation with a representative of the sports web site Soccerlife.

Discussing Italy’s umbrella organization for amateur soccer, Tavecchio complained about the involvement in the Lega Nazionale Dilettanti on the part of real estate mogul Cesare Anticoli, a prominent Italian Jew and proud Israel-supporter.

Segments of the audio were released by the Italian daily il Corriere della Sera, in which Tavecchio can be heard saying about Anticoli: “I don’t have anything against Jews, but it’s best to keep them under control.”  more
