Nations that fail to address the intolerant mindset at the root of racism will find that intolerance eventually resurfaces and comes back to haunt them, writes Daniel Lubetzky. "Extremist ideology not only hurts a society's enemies, but also eventually attacks from within and harms the society from which it originated."

The club's most fanatical supporters finally became so extreme in their intolerance that Beitar Jerusalem's 2013 signing of two Russian League players who happened to be Muslim led to protests and anti-Arab chants against the very club that fueled the fans' racist fire.
