A plea to end Apartheid!
Everyone is sick of the hypocrisy of football authorities who, whilst rightly complaining about racial remarks on football pitches they completely ignore the worst manifestation of racism – apartheid racism and the ethnic cleansing, jailing, torturing and killing of Palestinian men, women and children required to maintain it. Football ruling bodies disgracefully and hypocritically reward Apartheid by awarding Israeli Apartheid the prestigious finals tournaments of UEFA competitions, as well as entry to its lucrative Champions League.
Football Against Apartheid is petitioning the football authorities to support the call of Jibril Rajoub, Chair of the Palestinian Football Association to expel Israel following the shooting of two footballers peacefully returning home from training.
Please sign the petition by Football Against Apartheid calling on President of FIFA, Sepp Blatter, The President of UEFA, Michel Platini and President of Brazil Dilma Rousseff to take up the call of Jibril Rajoub, chair of the Palestinian Football Association, whose association “seeks the expulsion of Israel from FIFA at the next FIFA Congress” to be held in Brazil ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
