FIFA: Give Israeli Settlements the Red Card

To Tokyo Sexwale, Chairman of FIFA’s Investigation Committee:

As concerned citizens from across the Middle East, North Africa, South Africa, and the world, we ask you to uphold FIFA’s own rules and provide fair recommendations to evict Israeli settlement teams from FIFA. There should be zero tolerance for the six teams that flagrantly ignore international law and operate in occupied territory. Settlement football teams legitimise the illegal occupation and condones the suffering the Palestinians face as a result.

FIFA: Give Israeli Settlements the Red Card
Six Israeli football clubs play in stadiums on stolen Palestinian land, and Israel’s military prevents Palestinian players, and their fans, from setting foot in them!

But we may be just days away from stopping this injustice. FIFA laws prohibit using another country’s land without consent, and South African FIFA official Tokyo Sexwale just led a delegation to the region to investigate.

Israel is trying to persuade him to do nothing. But if enough of us raise our voices and make this a massive issue in South Africa, where solidarity with Palestine has a long history, we could push FIFA To hold the Israeli Football Association accountable. But we have to make this big fast.
