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.
