Beitar Jerusalem FC Maintains No-Arabs Policy

NETANYA, ISRAEL - OCTOBER 14: (ISRAEL OUT) Beitar Jerusalem soccer fans react to smoke after they burnt flares when their team went down 1-3 during an away game against Maccabi Netanya on Saturday evening October 14, 2006 in Netanya in central Israel. Beitar Jerusalem FC was founded in the 1930's by the right-wing Revisionist Zionist movement, which later formed the Israeli Likud political party, during the British Mandate rule over Palestine. True to its right-wing roots, the team is the only one in the Israeli league to have never had an Arab player. A recent attempt by the club's owner, Russian-Israeli billionaire Arkadi Gaidamak, to sign an Arab player was opposed by Beitar supporters, who have been accused of being racist.
