Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein sent a letter to the owner of the Beitar Jerusalem team last night to inform of his decision regarding the ‘serious and worrying outbreak of overt hatred and racism from certain Beitar Jerusalem fans’ over the addition of two Muslim players to the team.

Weinstein mentioned that the decision was made following his meeting with Police Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino, State Attorney Moshe Lador, the director-general of the Sports Ministry and other senior law enforcement and sports officials.

Weinstein told those assembled that “such racism was fit to be fought against in every arena that it raises its ugly head.”
