The fascinating tale of Beitar Jerusalem, a club which began as a sports movement of a liberal Zionist party but developed into an overt symbol of right-wing views, Mizrahi identity and eventually hardcore racism and nationalism, not even signing a Muslim player for many years out of fear of it's own far-right supporters' group. The book explores the radicalisation of Beitar and the fight for the soul of the club between the racists and open-minded fans in one of the most volatile cities on Earth. Published in 2022.
