Israel's Millwall (c1970s) has a new owner

Betar Jerusalem, which has a large number - if not a majority - of supporters who appear still to have the mentality of those who inhabited the terraces of Millwall's Old Den on Cold Blow Lane, New Cross, has new owners, Dan Adler and Adam Levine.

I wonder what Mr Adler will make of the monkey chants used against black players and the "Death to the Arabs" chants sung at players from Israel's minorities. I wonder if he'll be able to persuade these hooligans that Betar can have Arab players, too. It'll be a cold day in hell...
And on the subject of casual racism in Israel, why are there no laws against signs on businesses that say: "Help Wanted. After the Army." when actually they mean: "Help Wanted. Arabs Need Not Apply."
