Israeli Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev published a video for herself smiling as she was surrounded by people letting out genocidal chants against Palestinians.

The video was taken while Regev was attending a soccer game between Beitar Jerusalem, a team known for its fans’ anti-Arab racism, and Bnei Sakhnin, an Arab squad from northern occupied Palestine.

The fans of Beitar Jerusalem gathered around Regev chanted “burn down your village” (translated as “May your village be burned”). She continued smiling and made no comment.



Regev is the same minister who called couple of years ago African asylum seekers in Israel “a cancer,” she came days later and apologized, but not for African refugees, but to cancer patients.

The video viral as many Palestinians and foreigners attacked on social media the Israeli Minister for her attitude, others said that she could easily edit the last seconds of the video if she wanted, but she didn’t really mind it, according to them.
