Sinai Says: Israeli soccer fans’ treatment of Harush well beyond shameful

Ariel Harush must be wondering what he has done to deserve this.

Professional athletes unfortunately grow accustomed to receiving abuse from rival fans. But for the past two years, Harush has been cruelly targeted by the so-called supporters of his own team.

What, you may ask, has the 26-yearold goalkeeper done to warrant such a vile reaction? Well, he spoke out against racism while at Beitar Jerusalem and has become the scapegoat for Maccabi Netanya’s struggles after joining the team last summer.
