They thought it was all over- it is now!
« on: April 14, 2008, 05:39:27 AM »
JERUSALEM (AFP) - Football fans celebrating what they thought was a cup final victory just minutes before the final whistle, cost Israeli team Beitar Jerusalem their winning trophy late on Sunday.

Four minutes before time, thousands of supporters rushed on to the pitch as Beitar was leading Maccabi Herzliya 1-0.

Unable to clear the field so play could continue, the referee suspended the match, giving victory to Maccabi by default.

The behaviour of the Beitar fans, well known for their excesses and far-right views, was all over the front pages of Israeli newspapers on Monday.

"Those people are abnormal and idiots," said club owner Arcady Gaydamak, an Israeli-Russian billionaire who plans to stand as candidate for mayor of Jerusalem later this year.

In November, the Israeli Football Association banned Beitar fans from two home matches after they booed through a minute's silence in memory of assassinated prime minister Yitzhak Rabin.

Some fans even sang songs praising Rabin's murder by Yigal Amir, a Jewish extremist who was jailed for life after he shot the Nobel peace laureate three times in the back following a Tel Aviv peace rally on November 4, 1995.

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is a prominent supporter of Beitar but has spoken out against the behaviour of his fellow fans, who have been involved in repeated disturbances with followers of Israeli Arab clubs over the years.
