No Trip to Brazil for Gaza Official

It is not clear why Israel stopped Amassi from traveling -- but it's not the first time, even though the PA claims he is innocent.

Israel has blocked a Palestinian Authority official from traveling from Gaza to Brazil, allegedly to attend the World Cup.

A report released to international wire services, the Palestinian Football Association said its deputy general-secretary Mohammad Ammassi was not allowed to travel from Gaza to Judea and Samaria, and then from there to Jordan, where he would allegedly continue on to Brazil.

In its statement, however, the PFA admitted, “This is not the first time Mr. Amassi has been denied a travel permit.” There was no explanation as to why Amassi has been denied travel permits in the past. The PA claimed “Israeli authorities have nothing against him,” and complained that the rejection was “a temperamental and arbitrary measure.”

Palestinian Authority Arabs have traveled daily in and out of Gaza via the Erez Crossing for medical and humanitarian reasons, and in and out of Judea and Samaria for business and similar employment reasons for years.

It is not known, however, whether or not the rejection was part of Israeli sanctions imposed in response to the Ramallah-based PA’s reconciliation with Gaza’s Hamas terrorist rulers, which resulted in the new PA unity government. What is known is that numerous Arab terrorist organizations have threatened to attack Israeli targets abroad.

    USA and UK are responsible and must pay for their mistake, they inserted an illegal state in the ME which is Israel making the ME unstable and full of terror and violence and it will keep so as long as ISRAEL exist, Palestine must be freed and occupation ended as a first step to create peace environment in the ME . USA and UK are responsible for all Israeli crimes as much as Israel is since they always support Israeli Aggression’s.

  12. David Brooks says:

    Omar, keep on with your silly propaganda. Your Arab brothers ethnically cleansed my family from Iraq in 1948, and all Jews throughout the Arab world. Had you not done this there would have been 850,000 fewer Jews in Israel during the start of Israel’s modern existence.

    There never was such a big migration of Jews before 1948. So you see what happens when you try to work against Hashem. Arabs became the biggest Zionists lol
