Beitar Jerusalem Soccer Fans Chant Name of Rabin's Murderer

What appalling behavior.

The following article is from The Times of Israel:
Israel Football Association officials are considering taking disciplinary action against Beitar Jerusalem after a group of its fans were seen chanting slogans praising former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin’s assassin, Yigal Amir, during a game Tuesday night. ...

Beitar Jerusalem is known for its right-wing fan base, and its recent games against Israeli Arab teams have required up to 600 police officers, private security guards and undercover detectives, who have attempted to root out displays of hostility and calls of racist incitement among fans.

Most of the hooliganism is attributed to a group of extremist fans known as La Familia. (Tamar Peleggi, Beitar Jerusalem fans chant name of Rabin’s killer, The Times of Israel, October 28, 2015.)
