Would it be a legitimate strategy to do a call for prayers to force the player to start praying during the game?  Or maybe you could cover the ball with pages from the Koran so they refuse to kick it?

Jacob, another fan, agrees, "It's just a matter of being Arab [by which he means Muslim]. It's not racism, they just shouldn't be here.

Gee, why would anyone have violent disagreements with wonderful people like this?

"The reaction to the Muslim players being here is not racist," insisted 19-year-old Akeeva, a Beitar fan. "But the club's existence is under threat. Beitar is a symbol for the whole country."

Jacob, another fan, agrees, "It's just a matter of being Arab [by which he means Muslim]. It's not racism, they just shouldn't be here. Beitar Jerusalem has always been a clean club, but now it's being destroyed - many of the other players are thinking of leaving because of the Muslim players being here."


Anytime you have to say "I'm not being racist", you're being racist.

I just an interview on TV with a guy who said that non-Jews aren't really Israeli citizens, and not part of Israeli culture.

The BBC interviewer actually looked like he wanted to slap the shiat out of him.
 
2013-03-06 12:46:44 PM  
Wow. The word "pure" was even used. Had these people been born German and around during the 1930s and early 40s, they would have been calling for German purification from the Jews. Racist/nationalist/tribalist assholes are the same just with different symbols.

As horrible as it is, it wouldn't surprise me if this happened at most any other soccer match outside of the Western Hemisphere.

Israelis are pricks, but they're not as crazy as Palestinians.

Still, I say we let them kill each other. That's a good strategy for the Middle East in general- let them all kill each other. Who cares? It's what they want.

Hey quick question, is it antisemitic to call out the israelies on this?

/sorry stupid question, of course it is.
 
2013-03-06 12:51:45 PM  
Well the cognitive dissonance of some of the fans makes for an interesting study.  It reminds me of "I'm not racist but I don't want my daughter dating a black man."

If you are generalizing from the behavior of a well-known right-wing reactionary organization to Israeli society at large, then yes it would be. There is a lot more freedom of thought in Israeli society regarding the Israeli/Palestinian situation than there is in the US.

Don't worry, the T man or his Liar67 alt account will be in here to explain to us how the Muslims are the real racists here and that we're bigots for hating Jews.

Semites include Arab people, so you can go ahead and call the Israelies anti-semites.

Yes.  In the U.S., it is anti-semitic to criticize Israel period.

/also - (in a sane world) were the scorer Palestinian, it would have been perfectly accurate to call the fans anti-semites

Are you going to call out all the Israelis or just the ones who walked out and not the ones who cheered when he scored?

As a card-carrying Yid who's been to Israel twice, no. These guys are assholes, their rhetoric is shiat, and, worst of all, this guy is LITERALLY ON THEIR SIDE.

So, Israelis are cranky they were born too late and their army isn't good enough to provide more lebensraum?

I think his stock answer would be that this is just a fringe group, and not a representation of all people living in Israel. But you really have to begin to wonder when he's said that countless times about different people and groups there.
