FIFA enables racism, hate speech and incitement to terrorism.

The Palestinian Football Association and the PFA President Jibril Rajoub, an open supporter and promoter of terrorism, are responsible for a line of severe hate crimes, including the support and glorification of terrorism, incitement of hatred and violence, promotion of racism, and endangering Israeli players both physically and mentally based solely on their ethnic and national differences.

Due to the severity of these hate crimes, one would assume FIFA to abide by its own Disciplinary Code. Yet , whereas FIFA is quick to investigate much less severe complaints, FIFA has been ignoring the complaint against Rajoub for a period of no less than 5 months and is still avoiding opening an investigation.

Instead of abiding to its own code of ethics, FIFA is whitewashing the incitement, and blatantly providing material support for terrorism.

FIFA, it appears, supports hate crimes, racism and even terrorism.
