FIFA Condemns Israel, Not Hammas
Read this article from Tom Gross at NRO.
The world's beautiful game is also incredibly powerful. In 2002, over four billion people watched World Cup matches all over the globe. And when Yugoslavia was disintegrating back in the 1990s, both Serbs and Croats signed a five hour truce so Yugoslavia could play a World Cup qualifying match. That's pretty amazing for a sport to do that. After the game ended, each side went back to shooting each other.
I hope FIFA gets its head out of the pitch and does not go through with its idiotic stance on Israel. In fact, becuase of FIFA's stand on Israel, I hope it wins the World Cup. That would put FIFA and all of Israel's enemies on their backsides.
I shall bewatching the world cup matches in my local pub. ; )
