UPDATE: Iraq Will Play First-Ever Football Game in Palestine

Jewish terror free! In the coming months, Iraq has a match against Uzbekistan in September and South Korea in October.

I would call this a brave move indeed!

It’s been going on a long time…Israel targets ALL the young men and children in Palestine, to maim them if not kill them for the future.

Israeli forces attacked two teenage Palestinian cousins and soccer players, Jawhar Nasser Jawhar, 19, and Adam Abd al-Raouf Halabiya, 17, shooting them repeatedly in the feet and legs – ten bullets into Jawhar, two into Adam – before unleashing attack dogs and finally beating them in what critics call another egregious targeting of Palestinian athletes in a place where “soccer is politics.”

Dave Zirin, The Nation’s sports editor, has much more on “what’s left of Palestinian soccer”: four members of the Palestinian national team killed in their homes by Israeli forces, at least three jailed in Israeli prisons without trial, “real people, with real families, whose lives and deaths are testament to a story that needs to be told.”

Iraq national football team is set to travel Thursday on its first-ever visit to the Israeli occupied West Bank where it will face the Palestine national squad.

Iraq fought in wars against Israel in 1948, 1967 and 1973 and has still technically yet  (NEVER!) to make peace with the Jewish state, AFP reported.

Most teams in Arab countries refuse to visit the Palestinian territories because Israel controls the West Bank’s borders and blockades the Gaza Strip and SHOOTS ATHLETES.

But Palestinian leaders have for years called on Arab countries to send sporting and cultural delegations to help ease their isolation.

The friendly match with Iraq will be held Saturday in Ramallah, the West Bank’s administrative center.
