[Marxism] Israelis shocked by racist football chants

clip from article - Beitar, the only Israeli club to have never signed a
player from the 20% of the country's population that is Arab, has a long
history of racism among its supporters, with a favourite chant being "Death
to Arabs". Before the arrival of Gabriel Kadiev and Zaur Sadayev, fans held
aloft a banner at a match reading: "Beitar forever pure."

Zionism shares with Nazism a drive to remove an unwanted human population.
Instead of gas chambers, they've employed ethnic cleansing, but crude
racism serves both as the ideological glue. Hearing Betar decry this latest
example is like the Vichy police lieutenant in the film Casablanca - "I'm
shocked to find that there is gambling going on here!" as he collects his
winnings.
