Israeli Soccer Team Adding 'Trump' To Name To Celebrate Embassy Move

Jerusalem's largest soccer club announced Sunday that it has changed its name to "Beitar Trump Jerusalem", in honor of the USA president's recognition of Israel's capital and moving his country's embassy from Tel Aviv. But the club will first need to get approval from the Israel Football Association, and then it will have to worry about the fact that Trump's name is trademarked in Israel, the Jerusalem Post reported.

"For 70 years, Jerusalem has been awaiting worldwide recognition, until President Donald Trump, in a courageous move, recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel", it added. The president himself has supported plans to move its own country's embassy to Jerusalem, though the prime minister Andrej Babiš opposes such a move.

One of Israel's top football teams last night announced it was adding the word "Trump" to its name in honour of the US President.

"We have the greatest love for the President, and it will win!"

It's not known if the change is permanent or temporary.

Russian Bombers Intercepted By US F-22 Fighters Near Alaska — USNORTHCOM
Two Russian bombers were intercepted by United States stealth fighters in global airspace off the coast of Alaska on Friday. The jets never entered US airspace, according to the report, and turned back after passing the Aleutian Islands.

Beitar Jerusalem is a successful Israeli Premier League side with six national championship titles, seven Israeli Cups, and two Israeli Supercup trophies in its locker room. According to IFA regulations, however, a club can only add one or more of the following elements to its name: the name of a city or town, a sponsor's corporate name or the name of a deceased individual.

However, the club has a long history of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiment, and is the only club in the Israeli league that has never had an Arab Muslim player.

The US decision to relocate embassy to Jerusalem was largely met with criticism with the European Union, although such states as Austria, Romania, Hungary and the Czech Republic accepted the invitation to the opening ceremony, scheduled for Sunday, thereby contradicting the EU official policy on Jerusalem's status.

The Jerusalem Post wrote earlier this year that Beitar has faced disciplinary action because of La Familia's misconduct, which includes fan violence, pitch invasions, and racist chanting.
