Latest update: February 10th, 2013
On Friday, arsonists burnt down the Jerusalem offices of Beitar Jerusalem.
The teams trophies, memorabilia, historical uniforms and more were destroyed in the fire, started by a Molotov cocktail thrown into the office.
Beitar Jerusalem has once again become riled in controversy ever since the recent and rabid displays of racism on the part of a small group of around 50 fans began, following the hiring of two Muslims players.
Police have vowed to crack down on the racists, some of whom they suspect may have been involved in the arson.
