Mass Arrests of FIFA Officials Omit PA Terrorist Rajoub

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

A lawfare organization has called on FIFA to expel Palestinian Authority soccer director Jabril Rajoub from the soccer organization because of incitement for terror. He doubles as Deputy Secretary of the Central Committee of Fatah, whose Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades terrorists have murdered hundreds of Israelis, including the 11 Olympic athletes executed at the Munich Games in 1972.

Expelling Rajoub from FIFA would be just desserts in response to his campaign to expel Israel from the soccer organization because of the “occupation.”

He plans to urge the annual FIFA Congress meeting in Switzerland this week to pass a resolution to suspend Israel, but he was kicked with a big surprise early late Tuesday night that might distract the membership.

Hours after the call by Shurat HaDin (Israel Law Center) president Nitsana Darshan-Leitner to expel him, Swiss authorities began a roundup of FIFA officials to be extradited to the United States

Law enforcement agents in Switzerland swooped down on FIFA’a annual meeting at a luxury hotel Tuesday and arrested FIFA officials on U.S. charges of money laundering, racketeering and fraud.

FIFA director Sepp Blatter is not among those to be indicted. The gathering in Switzerland is expected to elect him Friday to a fifth term to head one of the richest and most powerful sports organizations in the world.

It apparently is also one of the most corrupt, which brings to mind the Palestinian Authority and Rajoub, a convicted terrorist who used his skills to head Yasser Arafat’s security forces. He has retained his penchant for terror by repeatedly inciting others to attack Israelis.

Last year, he expressed his wish for a nuclear weapon so he could drop it on Israel.

Darshan-Leitner wrote:

To say that such violent, hateful, discriminatory conduct is beneath the high ideals of FIFA for peace, sportsmanship and collegiality is to massively understate the obvious.

Rajoub, personally, and in combination with others on the Central Committee of Fatah, actively supports and renders aid to AAMB [Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade] and engages in public conduct designed to foster discrimination and terrorist violence against Jews and Israelis, in violation of the FIFA principles and of the FIFA disciplinary code.

Rajoub has no place in FIFA because he has cynically and brazenly flouted FIFA’s standards for conduct in Article 3 of the FIFA Statutes.

The FIFA regulations allow expulsion and a fine up to $20,000 for inciting hatred and violence through the media.

She noted that Rajoub has stated:

Fatah has decided that our relations with the Israelis are relations between enemies…am I stopping you from slaughtering a settlement? No one is stopping anyone.

And:

Until now we have not had nuclear weapons. but in the name of Allah, if we had nuclear weapons, we’d be using them.”

By all rights, Rajoub should be in prison, where in 1970 he was sentenced to spend the rest of his life for a terrorist attack on the IDF near Hebron.

Thank to the generosity of Israeli prison officials, Rajoub used his time in jail to study up on Zionism, polish up his Hebrew and lead hunger strikes and protests until he was freed in 1985 along with more than 1,100 other terrorists in exchange for three Israeli hostages held by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Israel arrested him again for returning to terror, but, of course, released him again, arrested him again for more terror, and freed Rajoub again.

He now hides safely behind his position as head of the Palestinian Authority Soccer affiliate of FIFA, the organization that has several officials under arrest for fraud, but not for inciting terror.

FIFA Pres. to Bibi: No Reason to Suspend Israel, But That Might Not Help

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

The head of FIFA, Fédération Internationale de Football Association, the European football (soccer) league, Seppp Blatter, told Prime Minister Netanyahu on Tuesday, that he sees no reason that Israel should be suspended from the FIFA as it hasn’t violated any FIFA statutes.

Terrorist leader Jibril Rajoub, who is also president of the Palestinian Authority Football Association has been working hard to get Israel kicked out.

FIFA is actually set to meet on May 29 to debate Rajoub’s motion among its 209 members. It’s needs a three-quarter majority to pass. If it passes, Israel will be banned from international competitions.

Rajoub has rejected an Israeli request for a Peace Game between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Meanwhile, the PA’s partner. Hamas, has hidden underground missile launchers in its soccer fields, and has used them to launch rocket attacks on Israeli civilians. If anyone should be kicked out of FIFA, it is the Palestinian Authority.

In 1970, Rajoub threw a grenade at an IDF bus. He’s been arrested numerous times for other terrorist activities, and was allegedly involved in a plot to assassinate Ariel Sharon in 1992.

Berlin Police Apologizing for Israeli Flag Incident

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

On Sunday, German police in Berlin made soccer fans stop waving and displaying their Israeli flags in a game between Berlin’s 1. FC Union and FC Ingolstadt.

The fans were waving it to support the Israeli soccer player Almog Cohen who plays for Ingolstadt.

Fans were told, “No Jewish Flags” and some claim the police were afraid of potential “Palestinian violence” from the Arab community that lives nearby, according to a JPost report.

On Monday, the Berlin police apologized. Klaus Kandt, Berlin’s chief of police also claimed the police officer thought the Israeli flag was being waved as a prohibited political statement.

PLO Targets Israeli Soccer Athletes

Sunday, April 19th, 2015

I guess we should be grateful. In 1972, The “Palestinians” murdered 11 Israeli athletes in Munich.

Fast forward to 2015, and the “Palestinians” are seemingly satisfied with just trying to get Israel athletes banned from playing soccer in FIFA, the international soccer organization.

That would be a civilized step up for them, if true.

FIFA has agreed to have a discussion on May 29, at the Palestinian Football Association’s request, to have the Israel Football Association suspended or banned from FIFA.

But have the “Palestinians” really graduated to merely politicizing sports?

In 2006, FIFA agreed to fund the repairs of Gaza’s soccer field, after Israel blew the field up.

Israel blew up the field, because besides soccer, the field was being used as a training facility for Islamic Jihad and al-Aqsa Martyrs. And a week earlier an Israeli soccer field was hit with a Kassam rocket launched from Gaza.

Israel blew up that same Gazan soccer field again in 2012. This time because Gaza’s terrorists were using it to launch rockets at Israel. Hamas actually built an underground rocket launchers into the soccer field, the killing field.

Unfortunately, the “Palestinians” are still using sports to try and kill and attack Jews.

German Man on Trial for ISIS Membership Played On Jewish Soccer Team

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

A German man who went on trial in Frankfurt, Germany Monday for being a member of the extremist ISIS group once played for a Jewish soccer club.

Kreshnik Berisha, 20, is alleged to have traveled to Syria where he fought with the group for five months before he returned to Germany, according to the Associated Press.

Berisha, 20, reportedly comes from a Muslim family from Kosovo. He was arrested in Germany in December on charges of membership in a foreign terrorist organization and is believed to be one of about 400 German citizens who have joined jihadist groups fighting in Syria since the beginning of the more than three-year-long civil war.

State prosecutors said he underwent firearms training in Syria and reportedly worked as a medic for ISIS.

“On top of this, he took part in combat missions that occasionally lasted several days,” the charge sheet read.

He has since “turned his back” on ISIS, defense lawyer Mutlu Günal told the British newspaper The Guardian. The judge reportedly is working with prosecutors on a plea deal in exchange for information about the extremist group.

Berisha played on the under-17 youth team of Makkabi Frankfurt, a prominent Jewish soccer club, as recently as 2011.

Membership in the team is not restricted to Jews and is described as diverse. Israeli teams also are also careful not to discriminate with regard to race, religion or color.

All that matters is to win and be proud to say that the team is from Israel, even if not one player is Israeli and not one is even Jewish.

When you hear the lefties talks about a “Jewish democratic state of Israel,” the “Jewish” is in name only.
