The sense is:
By judaizing, the Judaizers became again part of the Jewish nation, the same nation of who crucified Jesus. Hence they crucified again Jesus.
This reveals that, if the passage is not an interpolation (it is the only verse where the crucifixion is mentioned), then for the author of Hebrews Jesus was crucified "by the Jews" on the earth.
