When it comes to racism on the football field, the ball is in the court's hands - Haaretz

When it comes to racism on the football field, the ball is in the court's hands - Haaretz | Racism: discrimination against race | Scoop.it
There is no value to a sport, which is supposed to be a symbol of equality and fraternity, when it is used to smash those very values.
Suhayel Uddin's insight:

       On Friday, November 21, 2014, during a match, fans of the Bnei Yehuda soccer team were screaming out "Death to Arabs". The fans used this racist behavior against two players that plays for the Bnei Lod soccer team, who are Salim Tuama and Mahmoud Abbas. When the latter was taken off the pitch, the fans threw horrible stuff at him like drinking cups and they also spat at him. After that, the fans were after somebody else who was Bnei Lod's chairman, Mohammed Azabarga. The security guards did nothing about the fan's racist behavior.

       Bnei Yehuda's chairman, Moshe Damaio said that he was ashamed of what happened. Now the question was whether there is any value to a sport when it comes to a mass of racism and the answer was no. The only problem is Israeli soccer itself, and the fans have a problem of their own.

       The Tel Aviv District Prosecutor's Office caught three soccer fans for their racist behavior against the soccer player Maharan Radi. The Tel Aviv district prosecution has finally taken racist issues seriously and are going to arrest the fans who screamed out racist comments, and the matter is now in the court's hands.
