Six Israelis Arrested For Murder Of Palestinian Teen Had Criminal Records And "Nationalistic" Motive

The six suspects were Jewish Israelis who came from Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh, and the settlement of Adam. They were united, said police, through their mutual following of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer group. "They were, most of them, known to police. They have been engaged in acts of disturbances before." He said that the group had been tied to an attempt the day before to kidnap 9-year-old Musa Zalloum from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

La Familia organized a protest in which they unfurled a giant yellow banner in Jerusalem's Teddy Stadium that read "Beitar Will be Pure Forever" -- a surreal echo of the Nazi slogans used against the Jews.
