Ive always wanted to know....is there a proper logical explanation as to why Israel are allowed to take part in European football competitions such as the European cup (Champions league) and Euro 2004, 2008?

Geographically they aint even part of Europe,
otherwise im sure Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Jordan and even Palestine should also be included.

i know its mainly due to double standards in play , as usual, but FIFA make such a big deal about how they are eager to

'Kick Racism out of Football'

but they allow a country with a very poor human rights record, very apartheid and not even part of Europe to take part in European competitions!

i mean whats their explanation???


They dont even bat an eyelid when a top premiership club like Arsenal sign a multi million pound deal with The Racist State Of Israel to promote their tourism industry in Arsenals new Emirates Stadium.

(which btw is funded by the 'muslim' rulers of U.A.E.)

Can anybody shed any light on this please?

The Israel National Football Team has participated in four different continents: Asia, Africa, South America and Oceania in the Football World Cup qualifiers, before settling in Europe as a member of UEFA.

The Israel Football Association was founded in august 1928 and has applied for membership in FIFA. It was accepted to FIFA on June 6th 1929 as the Palestine Football Association. The first israeli football league was set up in 1932. in 1956 the Israel Football Association was admitted to the AFC. in the early 70's the Israel Football Association was expeled from the AFC due to political presure from Arab and Muslim states that refused to play against Israel. for 20 years the Israel Football Association was not affiliated with any confederation and was playing provisionally in OFC and in UEFA until in 1991 it was admitted to UEFA as a full member. since then Israeli clubs have been playing in the various UEFA club competitions and the Israeli national team has been trying to qualify for the European Football Championship and for the FIFA World Cup as part of Europe.

In all tournaments involving Asian nations... Asian Games, football etc. Palestine is a competitor... so imagine if Palestine vs Israel game happened?

Plus, Asia continent has the most countries which didnt recognise Israel...
