Kick Israeli Apartheid Out of Football – Fair Play for the Palestinians

Please visit this link and sign the PSC petition:

http://www.palestinecampaign.org/petition.asp?PetitionID=4

We the undersigned urge the Football Association (FA), the Union of European Football Association (UEFA) and the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) to take appropriate measures to ban the national Israeli football team from all international fixtures until the state of Israel entirely complies with International Law and relevant United Nations resolutions to end Israeli occupation.

For the past 60 years, Israel has been destroying Palestinian lives, livelihoods and homes daily, is refusing to stop the building of illegal settlements and the apartheid wall on stolen land.

Palestinians love football but both amateur and professional players and the Palestinian Football Association are unable to function fully because of the occupation. Children have been killed and injured by the Israeli army while playing football. International and national football organizations must take action to support the Palestinians right and ability to participate at every level of the game.

We believe that, like the sporting boycott against Apartheid South Africa, only international pressure can make Israel end its violations of international Law and human rights towards the Palestinian people to bring about a just and lasting peace to the Middle-East.

(This petition will be brought to the attention of the FA, UEFA and FIFA ahead of the England – Israel Euro qualifier on 8th September 2007).

Please circulate these details widely.
