Anti-Semitism in Holland

Not one of my usual sources, but the first two paragraphs of this article caught my eye. It's an article on anti-semitism, but here's the key quotes:
There is a famous soccer team in Amsterdam called Ajax. It's taken on the unusual nickname of "the Jews" and "SuperJews" because of the team's Dutch-Jewish history.

When you go to Ajax matches, you will, of course, hear opposing fans rooting against Ajax. But unless you understand Dutch, you won't realize that some of them are screaming "We're hunting Jews," and "Jews to the Gas." And that hissing sound the fans are making -- it's the sound of the gas chamber. Last week, Ajax publicly asked that people stop calling them "the Jews."
