Last week, Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team beat Real Madrid in the Euroleague final.

In basketball-crazy Israel, a third of the country watched the game.

And thousands showed up in Rabin Square in Tel Aviv, to celebrate.

There, the team got hugs and kisses from PM Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres.

Meanwhile, back in Spain, Real Madrid fans took to Twitter, with a hashtag (translated as #F…ingJews) to express their outrage over the defeat, hoping the Israeli team takes a shower after the game…in a gas chamber, and other vicious comments. (Haaretz: Spanish basketball fans resort to anti-Semitic tweets after defeat)

    Huh. Spain just had a town change its name after 400 years being known as Camp Kill Jews. Couldn’t see this coming? Li’l Obama & Lurch had no comment.

    The overwhelming majority of Maccabi Tel Aviv’s players are black and they are from the U.S. They are as Jewish as LeBron James. This shows that the Spanish fans are also STUPID.

    Tyrese Rice, guard, who played very well graduated from Boston College. Great game highlights.

    Poor spain. Perhaps if the country didn’t lisp their spanish, they might matter.

    This is yet more craven asslicking of the Moslems by spineless Spaniards, desperate to keep out of the Moslem crosshairs. First, they retreated from Iraq & Afghanistan after the Madrid train bombing. Now this.

    I reckon El Cid is rolling in his grave. “Get your stinking Moslem paws off my country, you damned dirty apes!”
