FIFA World Cup fans boycott Israeli media in solidarity with Palestine

Since Qatar was awarded hosting rights back in 2010, the 2022 FIFA World Cup has been marred by controversy. Various western lobbies have criticized Qatar’s Islamic ideology, which has raised questions about the mega-event’s viability.

Despite FIFA’s statement that politics cannot be a part of the beautiful game, propaganda against the Middle Eastern country hosting the event seems to be driven by politics.

There have been many criticisms of western hypocrisy in questioning Qatar’s policies while their own countries have done exactly the same.

Palestine has been the scene of crimes against humanity committed by Israel. The majority of Muslim countries have raised their voices against Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and don’t share a good relationship with Israel.

The Israeli media has been boycotted by Muslims around the world with numerous videos showing Muslims refusing interviews.

Social media erupted with videos of Palestinians refusing to interact with Israeli journalists.
