Happy Ramadan: Algeria Team Donates World Cup Money to HAMAS

By Debbie Schlussel

Hey, another reason to hate soccer and the hyperbolic World Cup tripe. The Algerian Team is donating its World Cupbonus money to HAMAS.



Algerian FIFA World Cup Soccer Team Donates Its Winnings to HAMAS

One of the requirements on Ramadan is to give “zakat” or “charity,” especially to Muslims “back home.” And since the Algerian team got a phony exemption from Ramadan fasting, I suppose it’s only “fair” that the team sends its winnings to Gaza, which means the money goes to HAMAS, period. Yay, more money for jihadists who kidnap and murder Israeli teenagers. Fabulous that soccer funds this. And if you watched the FIFA World Cup, you indirectly helped give them that money (FIFA makes its money through television broadcast rights, licensing, and tickets).

While Ghana and Cameroon were embroiled in disputes over World Cup bonus pay, the Algerian squad has decided to donate its bonus to the people of Gaza Strip. Islam Slimani, who scored a crucial header against Russia to ensure Algeria’s first ever qualification to the World Cup knock-out stage, said: “They need it more than us,” referring to those in the Palestinian city, according to journalist Waleed Abu Nada.

Algeria was the only Arab country playing in Brazil 2014 World Cup. Despite the team losing 1-2 to Germany during the extra-time, their resilient, strong performance impressed many. They returned home to a heroes’ welcome on Wednesday and greeted by the Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal, who also embraced the team’s Bosnian coach Vahid Halilhodzic.

And a HAMAS heroes’ welcome in Gaza, once the soccer cash rolls in.

And people attacked me when I said love of soccer unites our enemies. Wake up people.

I wonder if Brad Pitt’s concu—, I mean wife, will be matching the donation dollar for dollar. And how long before the first troll appears to tell us that Gaza Strip does not mean HAMAS, it means poor, downtrodden, meek women and children who don’t have enough goats milk for even one day.

Fierce, big bad, Apartheid Israel, with its Big Brother, The Great Satan, against poor, downtrodden Islam. Hark! I smell peanuts and camels! Here come the trolls!!!

I have learned long ago to never doubt your word, Debbie. Thanks for showing us what these horrid muslims and their liberal enablers are really about.

I am hopeful that President Obama, and other leading statesmen will express their contempt for this action, just like they did for the evil behavior of Donald Sterling.

Oh my. Did ESPN and other “Sports” outlets just “Forget” to report this bit of news? I am waiting for John (Lurch) Kerry to announce a matching donation of our taxpayer money.

Algeria is a Berber country dominated by an Arab military. Because of that, Algeria has always been an under-achiever amongst nations.

Nobody cares about Algeria! In the early 1990’s, while we received daily updates on the “intifada” over 100,000 had died in Algeria’s bloody civil war. The civil war was caused by Islamists challenging the old socialist/nationalist regime. It was an analogous prelude to the Libyan civil war in many ways except nobody intervened. Nobody cared. No Jews to blame.

Algeria has always been a rather tenuous place. Prior to French colonization, there really was no “country”. To hear the NPR version of Algeria’s history: everybody was happy until the French colonized Algeria. That wasn’t the case at all.

Algeria was an anarchy dominated by the Barbary Pirates for over a hundred years prior to French colonization. America fought its first foreign war with these same Barbary Pirates.

Algeria is a country where Islam and Marxism are joined at the hip in a strange and delicate balance. The socialists can’t rule without the Muslims. The Muslims can’t define a country without the socialists. The country never seems to fully embrace the modern world. Without petrochemical wealth, the country falls apart and Algerians all know it.

Soccer and “Palestine” are all they have to divert their attention from their real problem: creating a national economy independent of oil. Your column provides one more example of that.

It’s kind of sad about Algeria. Of all the North African countries, Algeria has the most potential for becoming a modernist industrial country. They blow it every time. One look at their schtick explains it.

One of many reasons why I am wary of FIFA and other sports franchises that donate money. I have learned that much of the money donated hardly reaches the people it is intended. The people with access and control of the money usually go and use it to buy themselves expensive items in Paris and Milan. I am not surprised that Muslims are no better and those charities are usually fronts for Hamas, Hezbollah, Fatah and other diabolical terrorist groups.

To “adam”: I say this…

Fuck your god.

As long as people believe in ghosts, there will never be peace.
