FIFA is slated to vote on ejecting Israeli teams from international football. We must not allow this to happen!
The world’s governing body for football, Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), is slated to decide on the expulsion of Israeli teams based in Judea and Samaria at its upcoming congress on May 11.
More than 100 sports and socalled human rights associations have called on FIFA to demand that the Israeli Football Association (IFA) exclude teams based in that region and for FIFA to suspend Israel completely if it refuses to comply.
This is not the first time Arab entities have tried to undermine Israel through FIFA, although all their attempts have failed thus far.
Israeli embassies are working to remove the issue from the congress’ agenda altogether.
It is of utmost importance that we join their efforts and stress to FIFA that it must continue in its role to build bridges, rather than destroying any progress that may have been made.
FIFA must not become a forum for the kind of hateful discrimination being advocated by the anti-Israel boycott movement and the Palestinian Football Association (PFA).
Take action and urge FIFA to refrain from becoming politicized and from endorsing an anti-Israel resolution!
Urge FIFA to Reject the Palestinian Pressure!
