Win for Israel in this round at FIFA


In win for Israel, FIFA kills vote on Palestinian bid to sanction settlement soccer teams – Barak Ravid – Haaretz 11.05.17
Not taken entirely off agenda but a motion to extend consideration until March 2018 was passed 138-50. Palestine Football Association may take case to Court of Arbitration in Sport.

Let FIFA bring peace – Assaf Gavron – Haaretz 14.05.17
The powerful and impartial world soccer association might be just the right body to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Too bad its president balked.
