Only Israel can kill, occupy, steal others people land, rob, plunder & destroy others people livelihood, racially, religiously & ethnically abuse & discriminate, & still play football & compete in UEFA & FIFA competitions like nothing happens !
And remind me why is Israel part of UEFA and not AFC, anyway ?!
Shameful decision, no doubt, caught many by surprise, and left them justifiably disappointed.
Who pressured Palestinian FA to drop request to suspend Israel ? They resisted for a while (Palestine FA will not drop request to suspend Israel), but what happened all of a sudden !?
Head of Palestinian FA, Jibril Rajoub, decision to drop this bid is disgraceful, with possibly far reaching consequences, and right now this corrupt man is under heavy criticism from anyone with at least little bit sense of decency, dignity and integrity !
Those who pressured Palestinians gets lauded by Israel prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
From Times of Israel article:
Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday commended FIFA members for helping thwart a Palestinian bid to have Israel suspended from international soccer, and hailed the efforts of Israel’s football chief in orchestrating the diplomatic effort.
The prime minister spoke shortly after the Palestinian delegation to FIFA on Friday dropped a motion to have the Israeli soccer federation suspended from international football amid pressure from dozens of national delegates.
“Our international effort has proven itself and led to the failure of the Palestinian Authority attempt to oust us from FIFA. I thank all those took part in the international effort that led to the failure of this attempt, including the Israeli delegation in Switzerland led by Israel Football Association Chairman Ofer Eini,” Netanyahu said.
OK, we know Israeli politician have no shame and probably little or no humanity at all, but what about “all those took part in the international effort that led to the failure of this attempt“, who are these shameless bastards, besides USA and probably current Islamophobic Canadian government ?
However, some won’t close their eyes in face of crimes committed by Israel.
