The Democrat Party condemned PM Netanyahu for refusing to allow the two Jew-hating Muslim members of Congress into Israel. Will the Democrat Party condemn the government of Qatar, if they ban Israelis from attending the World Cup in 2022? Not a chance. At least 17 Muslim countries ban Israeli citizens because they are Jewish. Unfortunately, the Democrats will not condemn this open racism out of fear of offending their anti-Semitic constituents. #Jexodus!
Middle East NGO Calls on FIFA To Ensure Israeli Citizens Can Attend World Cup in Qatar.
FIFA’s code of ethics specifically prohibits the discrimination of nations and banning people based upon, their country of origin.
By Jerusalem Post, September 6, 2019:
International NGO, StandWithUs, is requesting that The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) ensures that the Qatari government will allow Israeli citizens to receive entry visas into the country for those who want to attend the 2022 World Cup.
“To date, Israel is not included in Qatar’s online list of nearly 250 nationalities and territories eligible for an entry visa. Like most Arab states (with the exceptions of Egypt and Jordan that have peace treaties with Israel) Qatar does not recognize Israel and bans Israelis from entering,” the NGO said in a statement.
Article 22 in the FIFA Code of Ethics evidently states that “offend[ing] the dignity or integrity of a country, private person or group of people through contemptuous, discriminatory or denigratory words or actions on account of race, skin colour, ethnicity, nationality, social origin, gender, disability, language, religion, political opinion or any other opinion, wealth, birth or any other status, sexual orientation or any other reason” is strictly prohibited.
The main issue throughout this matter is the arising juxtaposition between the Qatari administration and the FIFA code of ethics.
There are many laws, practices and views that Qatar is complicit in, which contrast with FIFA’s Code of Ethics.
