Racism & Soccer in Israel

Chanting “Death to the Arabs,” hundreds of young Jewish soccer fans race up a dusty side street to catch a bus carrying fans of the Arab team that had just beat theirs in a tense game.

The supporters jeer even after the bus pulls away. Moments earlier, an Arab fan had been hit in the head with a rock, bloodying his forehead.

Welcome to professional soccer in Israel, where racism and violence have become part of the country’s most popular sport.

What thoroughly disgusting behavior. Pretty much substantiates my point about nationalistic idiocy tho, don’t it?
