The stage is set for the Zionists maintain their status quo and aggression of the human rights, even in sports.

According to the news source, Israeli Foreign Ministry has been working hard to either prevent the vote on the country’s suspension from FIFA, or at least garner enough support to make sure the measure is not passed.

Meanwhile, as breaking news, Swiss police confirms now, that a bomb threat has been received at the FIFA congress in Zurich. It remains unknown whether the congress will resume.

The vote is/was set to be held Friday at the request of Palestinians, who complain about restrictions on training and competition.

As further info, before the congress started a group of around 150 pro-Palestinian demonstrators gathered to chant outside, waving Palestinian flags, was followed by two female protesters that interrupted FIFA president Sepp Blatter's opening address, to wave red cards at the organization's representatives.

The Palestine Football Association (PFA), a FIFA member since 1998, is calling for Israeli exclusion, claiming that Palestinian players are prevented from freely crossing the border between Israel and Palestinian territories, which hampers normal training and competition

How convenient I must say. These tactics to make everything to avoid or delay the voting session, has been used in the past by Zionist leaders.

After the previous above events, the Palestinian Football Association, Jibril al-Rajoub, decided to drop its motion to suspend Israel from FIFA, adding that he wanted to find a "responsible solution" to the issue, as opposed to "scoring points,"

Rajoub, proposes that free movement be ensured for Palestinian players, an investigation launched into alleged Israeli racism and a vote on Israeli teams on Palestinian territories.

Meanwhile, the president of Israel's Football Association, Ofer Eini, said he wants Israel and Palestine to "work together" and "join forces." He proposed a joint committee between Israelis, Palestinians, and FIFA.

Eini called on Rajoub to shake his hand on stage.

Let's wait for the outcome. I really hope that somehow, Israel and Palestinian relations start to walk in the right direction. FREEDOM of the Palestinian People.

Thing is if they exclude Israel they really have to exclude a few dozen other country’s.

I vehemently disagree with Israel’s actions but in perspective they are only one of many countrys doing crappy things.

I agree with you.
If we, for example, try to apply The Universal Declaration of Human Rights to all the countries that participate on FIFA, some will Fail for sure (one's more than others of course).

I decided to bump your thread given that Israel, once again, is interfering with the Palestinian football championship :
