FIFA Council:  PACBI condemns its result on settlement clubs

AS reported in the 27 Nobember posts, the world football governing body FIFA stated on Friday that it would not sanction or take other measures against clubs located in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

“Today the FIFA Council shredded the organization’s statutes and declared itself a complicit organization that welcomes Israel’s illegal settlement clubs,” Stephanie Adam of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel stated.

“FIFA is intent on providing material support for Israel’s violations of international law amounting to war crimes against one of its own member associations,” Adam added, referring to the Palestinian Football Association.

A full comment on the extraordinary decision of the Council and some unexpected comments by the Chair of the Israeli Palestine Moitoring Committee, Tokyo Sexwale, are given in:
