MK Tibi: “For an Arab football player, playing for the Israeli national team is a difficult compromise”

Monas Dabour Storm: Israel national team striker, Monas Dabour, Absorbed Contempt whistles Jarring during The team’s game Yesterday, following a post he posted during Operation Wall Guard, in which he wrote, “God sees everything and he will pay the wrongdoers,” with alleged criticism of the Israeli security forces and their behavior on the Temple Mount.

Today (Sunday), the Knesset member spoke, Ahmed Tibi, With Ben Caspit Winon Magal On 103FM, referring to last night’s events: “In terms of football, it was a fascinating, interesting game. I do not like what I saw and heard, all the contempt whistles were ugly, racist, baboons. For an Arab player in the Israeli team, this is a difficult compromise a player makes with himself.”

“The reality is complex, so after he has decided that he does play and does everything to score and win, and after he writes a verse from the Koran that expresses his personal pain, there is so much about them against him, by the way my opinion is harder on the association. Added.

The MK from the joint list also referred to a quote from Davor who ignited the storm and said that “what hurt him, that they entered the mosque that it is the holiest thing for him and that people were hurt, pray. What is more humane than that? He should not apologize, what the association did opened the door “For racists of all kinds to whistle ‘contempt’ against him and wish him death on the pitch. The association bears responsibility. I do not remember that they did it to a nobleman and he did something much more serious on any scale.”

“A Muslim is allowed to quote a verse in the Qur’an against injustice or anyone who does injustice. “Because they will immediately make fun of him. I was almost certain that you and part of the choir would use the expression ‘crack terror’ after he scored a goal,” he added.

Later, MK Tibi argued that “there is a reality and it is complex, it is bi-national, there is a national conflict with religious elements sometimes and then emotions are expressed. It is permissible to express feelings, but an Arab in the State of Israel, even if he is a bus driver or a national team player or a doctor, is not allowed to express feelings that imply a violation of the general Jewish consensus in the State of Israel. This is not acceptable to me”.

“Let a Muslim turn to God without your checks. Recently an Arab is not allowed to say a great God, if an Arab says Allah Akbar you immediately catch it in the connotation of terrorist attacks. , said.

At the end, the Knesset member from the joint list said that in his opinion the solution to the problem is that the Muslim houses of prayer will be a place of peace and quiet for prayers. “This is the place to express wishes to God. There is a reality of occupation in East Jerusalem, for me it should end. Throughout the years, about 150 mosques and churches in the country have been damaged by Jews. The equation is simple, a Muslim prays in a mosque, a Jew in a synagogue and a Christian in a church.”
