Football/FIFA is a Metaphor for the UN

Sports only brings people together when stadiums aren't being used to launch rocket attacks against neighbors.
Gaza's soccer stadium doubled as rocket launching site and was demolished.

Football (soccer) enthusiasts around the world are familiar with the FIFA football federation (Fédération Internationale de Football Association). Their Mission Statement is:
“to improve the game of football constantly and promote it globally in the light of its unifying, educational, cultural and humanitarian values, particularly through youth and development programmes”

So why is FIFA trying to rebuild (again) the destroyed Football stadium in Gaza?

It was most recently destroyed (again) by the IDF 2 weeks ago, after Hamas used the stadium to shoot Fajr-5 rockets at Greater Tel-Aviv and at Jerusalem.

 

YNET/AFP reported that:

FIFA secretary-general Jerome Valcke has pledged that soccer’s world governing body will help rebuild the Palestine Stadium in Gaza City, after it was partially destroyed in Israeli air strikes.

“We see it our mandate to rebuild football infrastructure which has been destroyed,” Valcke was quoted as saying on fifa.com. “We will also rebuild the stadium in Gaza, which has been destroyed.

“Soccer brings people together and we will support any re-construction necessary when football infrastructure is destroyed through disasters,” added Valcke, who is in Brazil for the draw of the Confederations Cup.

Israeli fighter jets opened fire on the venue in the Gaza Strip earlier this month, severely damaging an indoor hall and a neighbouring building as well as leaving four large holes on the pitch.

Reports have estimated that the cost of the damage at the 10,000-seat stadium could run into millions of dollars.

The venue is one of three international stadiums used by the Palestine national soccer team, with a second the West Bank and a third in annexed east Jerusalem.

Football/Soccer only brings people together when stadiums aren’t being used to launch rocket attacks against neighbors.FIFA says above that the stadium was destroyed by a “disaster” which is why they are rebuilding it. The “disaster” is Hamas, and till Hamas is no longer active in Gaza, the FIFA stadiums will continue to be used to launch rocket attacks against Israel, and the IDF will be forced to destroy the stadium again.The United Nations today is poised to accept “Palestine” as an observer-status country — Palestinians use their infrastructure and donations to fund terror against Israel and infuse their children with hate.

The naivete of FIFA in rebuilding Gaza’s football stadium is the same foolishness of the United Nations in upgrading “Palestine” to an observer country.

    When the pitch is next used as a launch site FIFA can be sued by any victims.

  2. Anonymous says:

    And now as a result of Israel having had the audacity to try to defend itself the boycotters have seized their opportunity to brainwash a bunch of ignorant professional footballers to issue a statement demanding that EUFA stop Israel from hosting next summer's European under-21 football championship tournament. The statement uses the pretext of Israel's strike against the stadium – and the bald-faced lie that this "resulted in the death of four young people playing football". No mention of course about the stadium being used as a rocket launching pad. See:
