Simon Wiesenthal Center
March 28, 2016
Jerusalem - The Simon Wiesenthal Center today called for sanctions to be leveled against Croatian football supporters in the wake of numerous fascist and anti-Semitic chants by local fans at the Israeli-Croatian friendly match held in Osijek, Croatia last Wednesday [March 23, 2016].
According to Zuroff:
"Chants of Za dom spremni (Ready for the homeland) and Mi Hrvati! Ustasha, Ustasha! (We Croatians! Ustasha, Ustasha!) clearly express support for a country whose government organized the mass murder of hundreds of thousands of its minorities and political opponents. The fact that no one sought to stop these chants or take any measures against those shouting them, including Prime Minister Orešković, or any of the Croatian ministers or officials of the Croatian Football Association, constitutes a badge of shame for Croatia."
The Simon Wiesenthal Center is one of the largest international Jewish human rights organizations with over 400,000 member families in the United States. It is an NGO at international agencies including the United Nations, UNESCO, the OSCE, the OAS, the Council of Europe and the Latin American Parliament (Palatino).
