"I want to make Betar Jerusalem one of the five biggest teams in Europe.
I know it's hard and a bit of a dream.
In six months, I can raise one hundred million dollars for Betar's plans, "Malul stated in an interview, saying that the chance of the deal being implemented is 70 percent.
During the interview, Malul complained that he was referred to in the media as a "French Jew" and insisted - "I am also an Israeli."
On his business activity, which is hard to find a measure of online, he added: "I know the whole world is crazy now. You want to know something, you can see online, but I do not like it. I made money in my business."
On the addition of an Arab actor to Betar and history with the audience: "There are good people all over the world.
There are good and bad Jews and there are such Arabs.
In Abu Dhabi there are very good people who love Jews and Israelis.
We have a problem with Arab politicians.
I am a Zionist, I pray every day for Jerusalem and for Israel. "
As mentioned, yesterday an announcement was made by Betar Jerusalem that the French-Jewish businessman, Stefan Malul, had signed a memorandum of understanding to purchase the group and transfer a million dollars to a trust, as a serious fee. The rabbi raised questions as to why there is no more information on the Internet about the businessman, who also did not provide information about himself in the official announcement.
