1) what is occupating? A bit of proper English would be nice.
2) weither Israel is occuPYING the West Bank and Gaza or if it isnt an occupation, is something I am sure we all have an opinion about, but we also know this forum is not really politics friendly and that we better discuss such issues in a different place.
3) I do not see what the Israel football team has to do with politics anyway. Is any of the players shooting messiles on Gaza? Is any of the players serving israeli troops in the West Bank??
Politics are politics, sports are sports. The Israel football team has NOTHING to do with the political situation in Palestine or Israel, so I think for that reason alone your post is not really needed in this topic. Other than that, I am sure we can discuss this topic in a forum which is allowing politics, however from your comments and the style you are using, I doubt if we would be having any mature or serious conversation.
EDIT: Just saw your signature is now an anti-Israel statement as well. This basically means any mature conversation about the subject is pointless because you are not even willing to talk in a mature way, rather opting for some slogans.
The israel-Palestine conflict is a complex one and there are always two sides of the story. You seem to not want to hear both sides of the story and prefer to use some random slogans instead of having a mature conversation. In that case I think it is pointless to pay attention to your posts anyway.
And one more attempt to educate the ignorant: UEFA does not have a rule that a country must be geographically European to be a UEFA member. Otherwise Cyprus would not be in UEFA, while Azerbaijan and Armenia are borderline cases. FIFA rules say you can apply to any confederation and when they accept you, you are a member. Australia, Guam, Surinam, Guyana also do not play in their own continent's confederation by the way. But you seem to have no issues with any of those, only with the "evil Israel" which by the way was FORCED to leave Asian football because some other countries refused to play games against Israel. Read up before you make silly statements.
