The bigots speak! Palestinian protesters, with the help of local authorities, prevented on Thursday Israeli soccer fans from attending a game they traveled from Israel to Italy to see.
Video taken by Lavi shows protestors near the stadium waving Palestinian flags and shouting chants in opposition to the soccer match. Lavi said that an estimated 1,200 fans of Hapoel Beersheba were restricted to an enclosure far from the stadium by stadium security and local authorities. According to the Jerusalem Post employee, further police assistance was requested in order to address the matter.
Their crime? They want to cheer their local team. What evil!
Actually, their real crime is that they happen to be Jewish. Palestinians can’t tolerate that.
