Argentine Soccer Team Cancels Match With Israel Over Gaza Killings

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement enjoyed its greatest success when Argentina’s national soccer team decided to cancel its friendly match against Israel’s national team, in protest against the recent killings of protesting Palestinians. We speak to the award-winning Palestinian journalist Daoud Kuttab.

Israel To Ask FIFA to Ban Argentina From World Cup Over 'Religious Discrimination' After Canceled Match

The Football Federation of Israel and the company in charge of organizing the now-canceled friendly match between Argentina and Israel will demand FIFA expel the Argentine team from the 2018 World Cup in Russia due to alleged “religious discrimination.”

quote:

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in a blatant sports diplomacy move, unsuccessfully called Argentine President Mauricio Macri to try and convince the national team to play the friendly match. Macri, according to The Times of Israel, told Netanyahu he had no control over their decision.

In fact, it was AFA's President Claudio “Chiqui” Tapia who made the decision. “The ones calling us ignorant are underestimating us because this conflict has been going on for more than 70 years. What happened in the last few hours led us to take this decision...” said Tapia in a press conference after multiple protests against the match.

“I hope you all can understand the decision I took as a contribution to world peace. Football goes beyond religions, sexes... and has nothing to do with violence...” he continued.

Why do Canadians applaud the cancellation of the Argentine-Israel 'friendly' game yet ignore the continuing violation of BDS by their own?

Canadian Federation of Students endorses BDS

The Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) endorsed the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement on Monday and condemned the “ongoing occupation of Palestine.”

The endorsement followed a decision on the same day by Airbnb to stop listing rentals in West Bank settlements and a vote by the Quakers in Britain to divest from firms profiting from business activity over the pre-1967 lines.

The CFS resolved to support BDS activity including approving financial donations of up to $500 to any single pro-Palestinian organizations. The organization of more than half-a-million members, which has 64 member unions across Canada, also condemned Israeli “atrocities against Palestinians in Gaza and [reaffirmed] the Federation’s commitment to BDS and anti-war organizing.”....

The Quakers, commonly known as the Society of Friends, are rising against Israeli Apartheid. They have stated that they will stop doing business with any company that “profits from the occupation” in Gaza and the West Bank.

Paul Parker, a spokesperson for the Quakers in Britain, declared:

“Our long history of working for a just peace in Palestine and Israel has opened our eyes to the many injustices and violations of international law arising from the military occupation of Palestine by the Israeli government.

“With the occupation now in its 51st year, and with no end in near sight, we believe we have a moral duty to state publicly that we will not invest in any company profiting from the occupation.

“As Quakers, we seek to live out our faith through everyday actions, including the choices we make about where to put our money. We believe strongly in the power of legitimate, nonviolent, democratic tools such as morally responsible investment to realize positive change in the world. We want to make sure our money and energies are instead put into places which support our commitments to peace, equality and justice.”[1]

Ready, Aim, Fire! At Clear BDS Targets: 'Canadian Banks Fund Apartheid Israel

https://twitter.com/Popcanada/status/1069295228056756224

"BMO, RBC, Scotiabank own and manage shares in companies that build illegal Israeli settlements. BankTrack is the international tracking campaign and NGO support organization focused on banks and the activities they finance."

So Canadians now have a simple BDS targeting choice. As with Apartheid South Africa, Apartheid Israel is being financed by Canadian banks. DO NOT USE.
