PA official: Exclude Israel from FIFA

Palestinian soccer chief Jibril Rajoub on Monday renewed calls for FIFA to exclude Israel over games played in “settlements”, expressing disappointment at the world's body's recommendations.

Rajoub, along with groups such as Human Rights Watch, have led efforts to have Israel suspended from FIFA or quit sponsoring Israeli matches in Judea and Samaria, claiming they are being held on “stolen land”.
