This is a brilliant way to carry on a PEACEFUL INTIFADA, an intifada of awareness that cannot help but be noticed around the world. This sort of thing, along with the quenelle in Europe and soon (I pray) to be seen internationally, these are positive signs to give us hope. They are not the solution but they certainly go a very long way in promoting our cause and opening eyes!
Meanwhile back in Palestine ~ this is the Palestinian soccer reality the protesting Israelis would not have the world reminded of by such a uniform ~ boys playing innocently whilst perhaps in the crosshairs of a lurking sniper.
We have to be forward. It is shameful that the leadership of Palestino is tarnishing Chilean football. Hate and fanaticism don’t have limits..The issue here is different: The responsibility that leaders of each community and their institutions must show. Importing conflicts is irresponsible.
“We deplore the hypocrisy of those who express outrage at the presence of this map, as they talk about the occupied territories,” the statement read. “We deeply regret that Chilean Zionists seek to import the Middle East conflict to our country" by "tarnishing the history and the fundamental contribution that CD Palestino has made to the development of this sport in our country.”
