Prosecutors on Thursday filed indictments against four Beitar Jerusalem fans for racism, including the harassing of the soccer team's two new Muslim players from Chechnya.
All four fans are between 22 and 24 years old. Three of them were indicted for making racist statements during Beitar's game against Bnei Yehuda last month. A fourth fan, 23, was charged with harassing the two Muslim players during their first practice with the team last week.
Racism has worsened at Teddy Stadium after Beitar late last month signed the two Muslim players, Gabriel Kadiev and Zaur Sadaev.
According to the charge sheet, the fourth fan arrived at the Beitar facility dressed in a T-shirt with the slogan "Mohammed is 100 percent dead." He also waved a sign with a picture of Nadallah, a former Muslim player for Beitar. It quoted him from an interview: "I don't recommend a Muslim to join Beitar; the extremists won't change."
