War of Maps: Israel vs Palestine

ISRvsPAL Maps can be a powerful tool in geopolitics and information war for example by de-legitimising some country or even wiping its existence from schoolbooks; at least conflicting maps can lead to confusion about situation on the ground, mistaken map can even create a security risk.

Few opposite examples related to…

Israel suspends Israeli-Palestinian encounters on the pitch

By James M. Dorsey

The Israel Football Association (IFA) acting on orders of the police has suspended what it calls ‘sensitive’ matches, a reference to professional and amateur games between Israeli Jewish and Israeli Palestinian squads.

Police said the suspension on soccer pitches that have long signalled mounting tensions, violence, and racism in Israeli society was because their forces where stretched to the limit in attempting to prevent Palestinian lone wolf attacks on…

Racist Israeli soccer fans in the firing line

By James M. Dorsey

Israel’s most notorious soccer fan group, La Familia, known for its militant racism against Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims, has put itself in the firing line as Israeli-Palestinian confrontations threaten to spark a third Intifada or popular Palestinian uprising on the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip.

Members of La Familia, supporters of storied right-wing premier league club Beitar Jerusalem, the only top flight Israeli team that refuses to hire…

FIFA to rescue of troubled Saudi King Salman

By James M. Dorsey

Palestine is a headache Saudi King Salman doesn’t need as he confronts rare demands from members of his ruling family that he and his son be removed from power, growing unease about a seven-month old devastating military campaign in Yemen that has caused devastation and mounting civilian casualties, widespread criticism of the kingdom’s handling of the Haj in the wake of a deadly stampede, and concern about the financial and economic management of the kingdom…

Israel and Palestine play high stakes soccer

By James M. Dorsey

Israel and Palestine are playing political soccer with Palestinian football as the ball. It is a match which Israel is unlikely to win and that could prove to produce a bruising loss.

The stakes for Israel‎ are far higher than for Palestine. Israel is effectively on probation as it seeks to definitively defeat Palestinian efforts to persuade world soccer body FIFA to suspend Israeli membership as part of a broader Palestinian campaign to isolate the Jewish…

Israel struggles with racist underground

By James M. Dorsey

Israel is struggling with how to deal with groups some of which are underground that are linked to a banned nationalist political party that has emerged at the core of recent racist, anti-Palestinian incidents and include a militant soccer fan group that was responsible for last month’s violent clashes during a Europa League qualifier in Belgium between Israeli club Beitar Jerusalem and Charleloi SC.

Two government investigations of Beitar and La Familia, its…

Israeli soccer violence moves racism up the government’s agenda

By James M. Dorsey

A violent display of racism by extreme nationalist supporters of storied Israeli football club Beitar Jerusalem coupled with recent Ethiopian Israeli protests against discrimination and the government’s handling of the capture of two Israelis by Hamas has moved racist attitudes towards dark-skinned Jews and Israeli Palestinian up the government’s agenda.

Driving calls for the banning of La Familia, the racist anti-Arab, anti-Muslim fan group…

Unprecedented Israeli action against Jerusalem club’s anti-Arab/Muslim racism

By James M. Dorsey

The Israeli government, in a historic break with past policy, is taking right-wing, nationalist Israeli soccer club, Beitar Jerusalem, to task for its openly racist policy of refusing to hire Israeli-Palestinian players, who rank among the country’s top performers.

The move just weeks after the Israel Football Association (IFA) narrowly pre-empted adoption of a resolution put forward by the Palestine Football Association (PFA) suspend Israel’s membership in…

Can FIFA's Blatter prevent Israel's suspension from international soccer?

by James M. Dorsey @mideastsoccer

Winning a fifth term in office will be a cakewalk for FIFA’s

oft-criticized president Sepp Blatter, when measured against

the challenges posed to him by the looming Israeli-Palestinian

showdown in world soccer’s governing body. Blatter is

expected to travel to the Middle East ahead of FIFA’s May

29 congress, hoping to forge a compromise between the

two rival soccer associations to head off the Palestine Football…

Political Violence: Retiring the Word Terrorism

By James M. Dorsey

Founders of many modern states, including stalwarts of anti-terrorism like Israel and allies in the war on terror like the Kurds, achieved goals with political violence that killed innocent people and would be classified today as terrorism. In fact, the history of political violence mitigates in favour of recognizing it as a reflection of deep-seated social, economic and political problems -- rather than demonising it through terms like terrorism or evil.

Recent…

Israel chides club for racism in bid to fend off FIFA suspension

By James M. Dorsey

Israel’s Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) has demanded that notoriously racist club Beitar Jerusalem, the bad boy of Israeli soccer, retract recent statements that it would maintain its policy of not hiring Palestinian players because of opposition by the team’s militant, racist fan base.

The demand comes as Israel is fighting an attempt by the Palestine Football Association (PFA) to get the Jewish state suspended from FIFA at next month’s…
