The authorities always used to try to keep politics out of football - but then politics is about people - or it should be - and without people football is nothing. So the people speak and football has to follow (eventually!)

I suspect this cancellation is more about safety of the players but it gave Argentina the chance to make a political point as well. Good for them. And no, I am not anti-Semitic, but I am very pro the human right to live in peace.

My own opinion  ( for what it is worth) is that following the holocaust.. there was and is a great deal of sympathy and good feelings towards the Jews. This country took in lots of Jewish refugees especially children.

The problem is that now Israel partly because all the countries surrounding it have vowed to wipe them out... keeps building on land that belongs to Palestine. It also shoots lots of civilians, men women and children.

Israel is fast using the goodwill up from WW2.

I have always supported the Israeli cause but I cannot condone their recent actions.
