Many on the right are, no doubt, cheering that Barack Obama lost America’s (and Kansas City’s) bid to host the 2022 World Cup soccer competition to the terrorist-enabling, anti-Semitic apartheid monarchy of Qatar. But I’m not cheering with them. It’s a disgrace. And the only winners here are America-haters, Muslims (same thing), and the Al-Thanis–the fat and hateful ruling royal family of Qatar.
Two of a Kind: Yasser Arafat & Best Bud, Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani
Extremist Makeover: Sheikh Hamad Celebrates w/ FIFA Stooge President Joseph “Sepp” Blatter
I’ve always said on this site and elsewhere that if you love soccer somewhere around the world, the odds are that you hate America and support Islamic terrorism. And this vote by FIFA–against America–in favor of this glorified desert that funds and hosts Al-Jazeera (Al-Qaeda News Network) is more confirmation of that. The disclosure, over the weekend in the Wikileaks diplomatic cables, that Qatar was the “worst in the region” in counter-terrorism efforts and said it wanted to continue to aid Islamic terrorists–rather than help the U.S. go after them–was, as I noted previously, hardly a revelation. And we know that the Qatari royal family contributed to Palestinian Islamic terrorism telethons. For an Extremist “Makeover, Qatari Dictator, Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Removed His Islamic-Terrorist-in-Chief garb for a Western suit and Tie.
Reader and friend Joel adds:
Are you going to cover FIFA’s awarding of the 2022 World Cup to the absolute monarchical, terrorist-harboring Qatar? It’s astonishing. Since the World Cup was first held in 1930, it’s never been held in a country that wasn’t at least nominally democratic. The closest it came to a shonda [Yiddish for shame/disgrace/pity] was in 1978, when it was held in Argentina. Shameful.
And, as you know, Qatar is an apartheid state. It is part of the Arab boycott on Israel. If you are Jewish and have an Israeli stamp in your passport or hold an Israeli passport, you aren’t allowed into Qatar. If an Israeli team made it to the Wold Cup, even if they let them in, it would be a “show” exemption, since the state regularly practices apartheid against all other Jews and Jewish Israelis. What if a Gulf state wouldn’t let Blacks in or those who had stamps from Black countries on their passports? I guarantee you the world would shun that country and NEVER even consider it to host a world sports championship event. That’s what should have happened here. But, sadly, it never happens with these anti-Semitic, terrorist-hosting Gulf states. They literally get away with murder . . . and so much more.
Gee, I wonder exactly how much the bribe was, by what mechanism the money got exchanged…and whether it was in dollars or yuans.
This wasn’t a vote against Obama. It was a vote against America by America-hating world soccer officials who’d rather that soccer players get uber-dehydrated on the blistering heat in the land of camels, sand, and other “accoutrements” of oil sheikhdom than in the balmy weather of the best, most ideal host for the event, the United States of America. Barack Obama won’t be anywhere near the White House (we hope) in 2022.
The only upside is that American taxpayers won’t have to finance the gobs of spending Obama and his American soccer bureaucrats were promising. But, no worries, in 2022, I’m sure that money will have long been overspent elsewhere, so really no upside for you.
Don’t ever forget this truism: While some Americans may love soccer, soccer hates America.
Edgar Davidson makes similar points and more in a great piece and letter to FIFA.
