Since our enemy is shrewd, it is well aware of how the Spanish [football] League is admired by Palestinians and Arabs; therefore, it continues to target the stars of the outstanding Spanish League…”

The writer criticizes Israeli President Shimon Peres and the Peres Center for Peace, describing the President as the “tip of the triangle of destruction,” and attacking the center for “spewing its poison in the faces of the Palestinians.”

The Peres Center for Peace promotes coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians through sports events and Peace Matches, where mixed Israeli-Palestinian football teams play against top international teams like Real Madrid and others. Internationally acclaimed athletes and other celebrities act as Ambassadors for the center and help promote awareness of these peace-promoting initiatives. The writer of the article in the Palestinian daily describes the participation of the international sports stars and their visits to Israel as anti-Palestinian activities.

One such athlete criticized in the article is Argentinian footballer Maradona, who was criticized for being “one of the first athletes to don a skullcap and pray at the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall), shedding crocodile tears in occupied Jerusalem in 1986.”

The article also includes general hate speech, referring to Israel as “the Zionist entity,” writing that “the Zionist octopus’ arms reach out in every direction,” and slandering Israel by claiming that “the Zionist policy of oppression… has not limited itself to destruction of [sports] facilities and the murder of athletes.”

In addition, the wordsIsraelandTel Avivthroughout the article appear in quotation marks as an indicator of non-recognition of Israel. To read the complete text of the articles go to:
