World Cup: FIFA supports Anti-Semitism

Israel isn't playing in this years World Cup. No surprise really. You see, for the rest of the planet qualifying for the World Cup means competing against countries in your region in order to advance.

But not for Israel.


Because Israel's Arab neighbors refuse to play ball with the 'Zionist regime'.

So that would mean a forfeit and easy entry every four years for the plucky Israeli team right?


Rather than forfeit those matches to Israel FIFA forces the tiny country to qualify through the European zone. This means that Israel competes against soccer giants such as Italy, Spain and England (Go England!) rather than the relatively weak Saudi Arabian or Iranian elevens.

Both Saudi Arabia and Iran managed to qualify without having to suffer the humiliation of losing to the talented Israeli side.

But that's just the beginning of FIFA's shame:

Moreover, at the World Cup waving the Israeli flag has now become a political statement:

One wonders what next for the Beautiful Game.

hi there,
interesting blog youv'e got here.. I will come back and follow as you epand and write more..
I would just like to say 2 things:
1. the reason Israel is not in the world cup is because we did not qualify. We were very close but not good enough.
We play Eu leagues in all our sports, and it doesn't seem to bother us, we one back to back in basket ball in 2004-5 and only made into 2nd place this year... I think that given the sittuation I would rather see my players play against Italy than against Iran.

2. I got to your blog via Sophia's blof (les politique). I will warn you now.. don't waste your time... she is beyond any reasoning.. she trully believes that the world is out to get her and that it's all one big zionist/Jewish Plot. - just a friendly piece of advice from one who used to comment there!

Thanks for your comment on my site. While there is a lot of pro-palestinian sentiment here in Brazil, I was pleased to see Ronaldinho's gesture.

I was interested in your article, and learned some things as well.

Just a bit of trivia.
Ghana officially apologized a number of Muslim countries because one the players from their team waved Israeli flag.
