Looks like the rivalry between Ajax Amsterdam and Feijenoord Rotterdam Hooligans in the Netherlands. Ajax Hooligans and normal fans call themselves proudly jews or super jews. They often carry Israeli flags, Israeli hats and even sing the Israeli anthem as reappropriation. Rotterdam Hooligans and Hooligans of other anti-Ajax clubs like Ado Den Haag, PSV, FC Utrecht, and FC Groningen often use anti-Jewish and thus anti-semitic songs, slurs and grafitti.

Mokum (מקום) is the Yiddish word for "place" or "safe haven". It is similar to the Hebrew word makom (מקום, "place"), from which it is derived. In Yiddish the names of some cities in the Netherlands and Germany were shortened to Mokum and had the first letter of the name of the city, transliterated into the Hebrew alphabet, added to them. Cities named this way were Amsterdam, Berlin, Delft, and Rotterdam.
Mokum, without Aleph, is still used as a nickname for Amsterdam. The nickname was first considered to be Bargoens, a form of Dutch slang, but in the 20th century it lost its negative sound and is now used as a nickname for Amsterdam in a sentimental context.

The text reads, Feijenoord fans against anti-semitism. You see Palestinina flags next to these texts. Probably the Feijenoord fans use that flag, because the Amsterdam Ajax fans use the Israeli flag and the Star of David.

Wow! I thought this kind of rivalry is solely a Polish invention. Was Ajax Rotterdam started or owned by Jews in the past?
Rotterdam people would be really annoyed if you called Ajax a Rotterdam club. Most Rotterdam people dislike Amsterdam and the very Amsterdam Football club Ajax. It's like KS Cracovia and Legia Warszawa. Warsaw wouldn't like be associated with KS Cracovia, like KS Cracovia Warszawa. The name ofcourse doesn't fit, but Amsterdam and Rotterdam people are like Lions and Hyena's in Southern Africa, or Grizzly Bears and Wolves in Canada and the North of the USA.
Ajax Amsterdam's Jewish connection
Historically, Ajax was popularly seen as having "Jewish roots". Although not an official Jewish club like the city's WV-HEDW, Ajax has had a Jewish image since the 1930s when the home stadium was located next to a Jewish neighbourhood of Amsterdam-Oost and opponents saw many supporters walking through the Nieuwmarkt/Waterloopleinbuurt (de Jodenhoek—the "Jews' corner") to get to the stadium. The city of Amsterdam was historically referred to as a Mokum city, Mokum (מקום) being the Yiddish word for "place" or "safe haven", and as anti-Semitic chants and name calling developed and intensified at the old De Meer Stadion from frustrated supporters of opposing clubs, Ajax fans (few of whom are actually Jewish) responded by embracing Ajax's "Jewish" identity: calling themselves "super Jews", chanting "Jews, Jews" ("Joden, Joden") at games, and adopting Jewish symbols such as the Star of David and the Israeli flag.

This Jewish imagery eventually became a central part of Ajax fans' culture. At one point ringtones of "Hava Nagila", a Hebrew folk song, could be downloaded from the club's official website. Beginning in the 1980s, fans of Ajax's rivals escalated their antisemitic rhetoric, chanting slogans like "Hamas, Hamas/Jews to the gas" ("Hamas, hamas, joden aan het gas"), hissing to imitate the flow of gas, giving Nazi salutes, etc. The eventual result was that many (genuinely) Jewish Ajax fans stopped going to games.
In the 2000s the club began trying to persuade fans to drop their Jewish image. In 2013 a documentary titled Superjews was released by NTR and Viewpoint Productions which premiered at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA). The film was directed by Nirit Peled, an Israeli living in Amsterdam, and an independent film maker who offers a very personal view into the game, the lore of Ajax and its relation to Judaism from both the supporters as well as from a Jewish perspective.
Ajax also has a fanatic Polish fanbase, called, The Polish Brigade, and these Poles also use Ajax and Star of David symbols. Maybe that has to do with the fact that the Polish footballer Arkadiusz "Arek" Milik (Polish pronunciation: [arˈkadjuʂ ˈmilik]; born 28 February 1994), plays as a striker for Ajax Amsterdam and the Poland national football team.

Tottenham have a large fanbase in the United Kingdom, drawn largely from north London and the Home counties. Five times between 1946 and 1969, Tottenham had the highest average attendance in England. There are also Tottenham supporters' clubs located all over the world. Tottenham were 9th in average attendances for the 2008–09 Premier League season, and 11th for all Premier League seasons. Historical supporters of the club have included such figures as A.J. Ayer. Tottenham supporters have rivalries with several clubs, mainly within the London area. The fiercest of these is with north London rivals Arsenal. They also share notable rivalries with fellow London clubs Chelsea and West Ham United.
The club, as with many clubs in London, has a large Jewish following and this has led to much antisemitic provocation against Tottenham supporters. Tottenham supporters, Jewish and non-Jewish, united against this and adopted the nickname "Yids", developing chants to support this. Many fans view adopting "Yid" as a badge of pride, helping defuse its power as an insult. Today it is mainly used to distinguish Tottenham fans from other football supporters. Many fans, however, disagree with the use of the name "Yid", and believe it will only attract more racism. In April 2011, Jewish comedian, author and Chelsea supporter David Baddiel produced a short film stating that the anti-semitic chanting is as unacceptable as the abuse still suffered by black footballers, and must be stamped out accordingly.
So, Cracovia fans are called jews by the opposite Wisła club supporters, because the first owner of the club was Jewish around 1906. Big deal, a pathetic, small minded, anti-semitic reaction of thhos Wisła fans.
KS Cracovia has another jewish connection:
Ludwik Gintel (born 1899 in Kraków, died 1973 in Tel Aviv) was a Polish Jewish soccer player for Cracovia, who played as a defender (later forward). He was also capped 12 times for the Poland national football team, including their first ever Olympic appearance at the 1924 Olympic Games. With Cracovia, he was twice the champion of Poland (1921 and 1930).

Leon Sperling (August 7, 1900 – December 15, 1941) was a Polish Olympic footballer of Jewish ethnicity.

Sperling was born in Kraków. He was a football forward, playing on the left wing. Sperling represented Cracovia, the team he led in 1921, 1930, and 1932 to the Championship of Poland.
He also played in 16 games for the Polish National Team, including Poland's lone game at the 1924 Paris Olympic Games. He was regarded as a highly skilled dribbler. Sperling is one of Cracovia Kraków's legends.

Jutrzenka Kraków was a Jewish minority Polish football club during the interwar period. The club existed until 1939. Fans and players of the club were generally associated with the Bund political party (anti-Zionist, Polish Jewish socialist). The main rival of Jutrzenka was the club Makkabi Kraków, which was associated with the Zionist movement and political parties. The matches between the two teams were generally referred to as "Holy War" long before that became a common reference to matches between Cracovia and Wisła.
Jutrzenka played one season in I liga in 1927 when it took the last, fourteenth place. Another success of Jutrzenka was placing second in A Class (the highest level for soccer in the Kraków region) in 1924, behind Wisła Kraków and just ahead of Cracovia.
Jutrzenka's stadium was located at the present site of the stadium of Wisła Kraków.
The animosity between Jutrzenka and Makkabi was sufficiently intense that in arguments within KOZPN (the organization of Kraków area soccer teams), the Zionist Makkabi often made tactical alliances with the somewhat antisemitic Wisła (Wisła's charter banned non-Catholic players from its ranks) against Jutrzenka and its more democratic ally Cracovia.

In general for political and social reasons Jutrzenka was associated with Cracovia while Makkabi was associated with Wisła (the intense rivalry between Cracovia and Wisła persists to this day).
