Israel asks FIFA to condemn Palestinian FA chief's remarks

  • Israel has asked FIFA to condemn the recent comments of the president of the Palestinian Football Association, Jibril Rajoub, who in a recent interview glorified Palestinian attacks against Israelis and says he believes the perpetrators are courageous heroes. In a letter sent on Thursday, the Israeli Minister of Sports and Culture, Miri Regev, asked FIFA to condemn the recent "inciting" statements of Rajoub in an interview broadcast last week on the local Channel 10, media reports said. Regev said that the president of the Palestinian association is spearheading a campaign of libel and incitement. (Source: IANS)
