June 2018 | Germany Paying a Very Heavy Price – Even in Football – for Enabling the 3rd Hijira in September 2015

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 27, 2018

Angela Merkel helped the Islamic invasion of Germany and Europe by importing up to five Million Muslims since September 2015.

What does Merkel’s 12 year in power teaches us­? The fact that she single-handedly enabled the end of Germany’s golden age, in the same manner her spiritual brother, Joachim Low destroyed the once mighty German football national side – as Germany crash OUT of World Cup in South Korea double goal shock today – at the earliest possibly opportunity in group stages. This never happened to Germany at any World Cup tournament.

During September 2015, we saw the symptom of the coming tragedy – and today we witnessed another national tragedy for Germany.

Joachim Low whose deal as head coach runs out in 2020, has been in charge for 12 years – just like Angela Merkel.

The BIG question now is: will these two nation-crashers step down soon for good?

No Sane Christian African Should Support Egypt, Tunisia & Morocco at The World Cup

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 23, 2018

May all these three cruel and rude nations leave Christian Russia soon!

Here is why:

Many Egyptian Christians Feel Left Out of World Cup

Egypt’s first World Cup in 28 years has captivated the soccer-crazy nation, with intense focus on the squad and the broader game.

The Egyptians played the first match of the tournament June 15 and held two-time World Cup winner Uruguay scoreless for 89 minutes, until conceding a late goal and losing 1-0.

Still, the performance – with star striker Mohamed Salah injured on the sidelines – attracted international praise and gripped the millions of people gathering in groups across Egypt to watch their team together.

It was a welcome distraction for Egyptians who are struggling under harsh economic conditions. The 3-1 loss in the next match to host Russia, even with Salah back in the lineup, ended Egypt’s chances of advancing beyond the group stage. Despite the loss, the love and respect enjoyed by the team and the players remained intact.

Yet it wasn’t an entirely unifying experience.

For the country’s Christians, about 10 percent of the population, the composition of the team and the way the squad was perceived highlighted what they believe is a problem with the sport in Egypt.

No Christian has been on the national soccer squad for more than a decade, and just one played for any of the 18 top-flight clubs last season.

Egyptian coaches and officials dismiss any suggestion of discrimination, but Christians disagree. Egypt’s Christian spiritual leader has broken the church’s silence on the issue by publicly complaining about their disproportionate representation in the sport.

Egypt’s all-Muslim World Cup squad is known for being pious. The team even chose make its World Cup base in Muslim Chechnya.

The national squad has been nicknamed the prostrators because the players offer a Muslim prayer when they score. They regularly pray together when in camp and read the opening verse of the Quran before kickoff. Some perform the Muslim ritual wash before games. Generally, they frame competition, wins and defeats in religious terms.

Hassan Shehatah, one of Egypt’s most successful coaches, said nearly a decade ago that, to him, a player’s religious piety was as important as his skills. Hassan led an all-Muslim squad to win three of Egypt’s seven African titles between 2006 and 2010.

When goalkeeper Ahmed Elshenawy was named man of the match against Uruguay, he refused the Budweiser-sponsored award on religious grounds.

The perceived exclusion of Christians from top flight soccer and the national team is at odds with the outreach to the ancient community by Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, Egypt’s general-turned-president who led the military’s 2013 ouster of an Islamist president. El-Sissi has emphatically and repeatedly spoken about inclusion and sectarian harmony. However, his government, critics and some Christians say, has failed to shield the community from the day-to-day discrimination, particularly in rural areas with less state authority and religious tolerance.

Pope Tawadros II, head of the Orthodox Coptic Christians and a close el-Sissi ally, rarely speaks publicly of discrimination, but has recently waded into the issue with uncustomary bluntness. “It’s extraordinary that all of Egypt’s football teams don’t have a single Copt who has good legs and who kicked a ball on the streets when he was little,” he said.

Ahmed Hossam, a retired striker – and a Muslim who played for some of Europe’s biggest clubs – was more blunt.

He claimed in a recent television interview that youth team coaches were driving Christians away.

Regrettably, there’s a lot of people in Egypt who are bigoted over color, religion and ethnicity,” Hossam, better known as Mido, said. “We must confront them and not bury our heads in the sand. Can you believe it that in the history of football in Egypt, only five Christians played at the top level?”

As the only Christian on his soccer youth team, Ramon Zhery says he tried everything he could to blend in with his teammates. At the end, it was not enough. Zhery, now 28, plays for a third division club in southern Egypt. He says discrimination against his faith kept him from rising further.

Speaking to The Associated Press, Zhery recounted how he tried to establish harmony with his teammates and reassure them that, though a Christian, he was just another player like them.

When they huddled before kickoff to recite the Quran’s opening verse – a ritual meant to serve as a plea for divine help – he whispered a Christian prayer to himself. When at camp, he woke up before everyone and went about rousing them to perform the dawn prayers, one of five that Muslims offer daily.

Mohammed Salah is a world star and he prostrates every time he scores and everyone knows he is a Muslim,” said Zhery.

The Christians’ response to their perceived exclusion from domestic soccer has been “church football” – a nationwide league of five-a-side teams that is played mostly on church grounds or rented pitches.

Andrew Raafat, a physical education teacher who tried his luck in club soccer before he settled for a coaching job at a Cairo Church, says some of the better young players he works with want to play at the top level.

I cannot tell them that they will never be selected,” Raafat said. “They get selected sometimes, but they are later let go.”

Selected Comments:

Christians better wake up. The rest of the world is not interested in living in harmony with you or treating you fairly.

Crux: when selection is not based mostly on merit, Egypt is sending a soccer team that is not as good as it coulf be. Prayers aren’t gonna solve their insufficiency. They reap what they sowed…

Well, the Egyptian soccer player PRAYERS must not have been effective…. They still lost miserably. Now we know why – they are not right with god, but seek god’s favor….

Render unto soccer that which is soccers.

Christians in the ME should be given their own country….sort of like Israel.

That was called Lebanon….but Muslims got a foothold….and you know the rest.



This report has been sent to the FIFA officials directly, and submitted online via the new FIFA complaint mechanism.

Copts have been struggling with widespread, comprehensive and systematic religious, governmental and societal discrimination, which extends to all aspects of life in Egypt, including sports and soccer. During the past half-century, an infinitely small number of Coptic footballers – no more than 6 – have managed to join top flight soccer clubs. Some of those have spoken out about the rampant religious intolerance and the difficulties they have encountered. For instance, former Coptic footballer Ashraf Youssef told a newspaper that his teammates refused to eat with him simply because he is Christian (1). There are currently 540 players in the top-flight soccer clubs in Egypt, and that number includes only one Coptic footballer. The Egyptian Olympic Mission to Brazil in 2016 was completely devoid of Copts, and the same applies to the Egyptian National Team at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Not a single Copt can be found in either the main team or the reserve, and it follows that there are no Coptic sports commentators anywhere in official Egyptian media outlets or in private Muslim-owned media.

Coptic Solidarity has filed a formal complaint with FIFA in 2016 to investigate the widespread sports and soccer discrimination against Christians in Egypt. This Complaint prompted many Christians to speak up about the significant religious discrimination in soccer, which amounts to sports racism. A number of moderate brave Muslims have also addressed the same issue.

In Egypt, we have a large number of racists who do not try to hide [their racism],” said renowned international player Ahmed Hossam – known as Mido – in a TV interview. He frankly wondered, “Does it make sense that throughout the entire history of soccer in Egypt, there have only been five Christian footballers at the top level? There are many Christian children who are not allowed to continue to play because of the racist attitude of certain coaches. I have proposed that Christians should make up at least 10% of all junior teams in order to resolve this problem”(2).

In another TV interview, footballer and sports commentator Khalid Al Ghandour mentioned a racist incident against a Coptic person at Minya Sports Club. The caller, Shenouda Wahba, reported that one of his relatives had signed up for soccer tryouts at Minya Sports Club. The club’s technical director rejected him and stipulated that he should convert to Islam in order to be selected. Mr. Al Ghandour concluded by saying, “No one knows more than I do that there are Christian soccer talents treated unfairly in Egypt, it is absurd that there are 18 major soccer teams, and not a single Coptic player in any of them” (3).

Strangely, instead of investigating this racist incident, the Sports Media Committee rebuked Khalid Al Ghandour, claiming that his statements provoke sedition and fanaticism!!!!(4).

An altercation, seen on TV, between Al Ahli club technical director, Mr. Ikrami, and a young Copt named Pierre Zouhair Shafiq, took place when the young Christian man expressed his desire to join Al Ahli. When Ikrami found out that Shafiq and his colleague were Christians, he pointed to the main door of the club and told them to get out (5). Shafiq’s colleague recalled the incident in another TV interview and confirmed that Ikrami threw them out after realizing they were Christians (6).

In an interview with Al Youm Al Sabee newspaper on March 22, 2018, Pope Tawadros II, who usually steers clear of the issue of Coptic rights, said in answer to a question about the lack of Coptic soccer players, “Do not ask Copts about this, rather address the question to clubs and playgrounds, how likely it is that there is not a single Coptic footballer to be found in all Egyptian soccer teams?!!”(7).

At the well-known club Al Ahli, a Christian child named Tony Atef was rejected because he had a cross tattooed on his wrist. The media picked up on the incident, which forced the club to reconsider and accept him to avoid a possible scandal (8).

Dr. Yasser Ayoub, the most renowned sports reporter in Egypt, wrote several articles explicitly stating that there is widespread sports discrimination against Copts. In one of them, he observed, “It is neither logical nor natural that we do not have a single Coptic soccer player in all of the Official Egyptian league teams … One of the real reasons for this situation is the implicit oppression of Copts, which is not acknowledged due to ignorance and intolerance, or out of fear of offending sensibilities and causing tension” (9, 10, 11).

Mr. Ayoub reiterated in another interview, “Anyone who tries to prove that Christians are discriminated against in soccer is considered an agitator who is sowing sedition, so the issue is only raised in secret, while everyone denies it publicly” (12).

Egyptian intellectual Dr. Khalid Montaser put it in a nutshell in an article in Al-Watan Egyptian newspaper, “There is a chronic red line set against admitting Christians to soccer teams in Egypt  … We are a racist state par excellence, and a nation adept at discriminating between its children by means of religion, and this is the reason we did not even have 10 Christian footballers over the past 100 years … If a Christian excels and tries to join a team, the coach may sing his praises, but then turns him down because ‘he is unfortunately a Christian’”(13).

Author Sami al-Behairy told one such story: his Christian friend Maged Nabih Mikhail had passed the tryouts in Al Ahli club, performing well in front of the foreign coach. However, an official at the club asked about his name to issue a player I.D., and once he realized he is Christian, he simply told him: “Sorry, we cannot admit you into the team” (14).

Famous Art critic Tariq al-Shennawi raised a question in his column at Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper about the reasons for Coptic absence in soccer, stating, “The undeniable fact is that there is a distinct Coptic absence in soccer. Are Muslim families no longer willing to let their children play soccer with the children of their Coptic neighbors?”(15).

Writer Osama Ghareib responded to this question in the same newspaper, “Copts are being excluded from soccer because they are being increasingly accused and labeled as infidels,” he explained, adding that “Exclusion from soccer is not the only repercussion, as the infidel label may make them targets for murder and rape…. Since the majority of sports officials in major clubs are newly religious, you will not find one among them who would welcome a Christian child even if his talent exceeded that of famous international footballer Messi “(16).

Mada Masr online Newspaper published an Arabic/English report on the marked exclusion of Copts from professional soccer in Egypt, highlighting a number of cases that were excluded for religious reasons (17, 18).

Writer Tawfiq Humaid called on international player Mohammed Salah to lend his support to the efforts to end religious bias in sports against Christian Egyptians. He reminded him that were he a Christian, he would not have had the opportunity to play professional soccer in Egypt; and on the other hand, if the Western World did not consider competence to be the sole criterion, Salah would not have achieved international status (19).

Islamization of Sports

The problem of Coptic absence from soccer teams reflects a wider phenomenon, namely the Islamization of Egyptian society, including sports. In Egypt, the national soccer team is known as “the kneeling team” i.e., those who kneel down to worship in the Islamic way. Former technical director of the Egyptian national team, Hassan Shehata, used to have a Muslim cleric accompany the team on international trips to recite the Quran. He once said in an interview that “a player’s relationship with God and his proper behavior are important factors when he selects players who represent Egypt internationally”(20).

In an article published in Al-Ahram newspaper, researcher Wahid Abdel-Majid criticized Shehata because of the way he mixed religion and sports (21).

This general push for Islamization is reflected in the pressure put on foreign non-Muslim coaches and players to convert to Islam. Some of them have already converted to Islam so as not to lose their jobs, while others refused to, including Ivorian footballer Coulibaly who left the Egyptian team, later stating that they wanted him to convert to Islam (22).

Islamization of sports was also manifested in such statements made by Al-Azhar Institution, “Every goal scored by Mohammad Salah promotes Islam in Europe, makes English people sing the praises of Islam, and changes the way Europeans view the [Islamic] beard” (23, 24).

Coptic Reaction to Discrimination in Sports

As frustrated Copts struggle to find a way around the prevalent discrimination in sports, their options remain limited. In fact, filing complaints is about the only thing they can do, given that all sports clubs are under the supervision of the Egyptian State, and consequently their exclusion from soccer is a State policy.

A book entitled “A Goal in the Playground of Fanaticism”, published in 2010, explored in detail the exclusion of Copts from Egyptian playgrounds. Nour Qaldis, the book’s author and a Christian journalist at Coptic newspaper Watani, highlighted a large number of cases where talents were rejected on religious grounds. The book reached the conclusion that discrimination against Copts in sports is a far-reaching phenomenon, and that preventing young Copts from joining youth teams is a strategy designed to ensure that no Copts will be able to qualify for official soccer teams (25).

The only option left to Coptic churches was to organize church tournaments in small playfields within these churches, which at least gave Copts the chance to practice. However, this option is still flawed, since these are small Playgrounds, lacking professional capabilities and the ability to nominate Coptic players for official clubs (26).

Last year, a young Christian man founded the “Je Suis” Academy as a way to bring together talented Copts who were rejected by major clubs. He rented soccer fields in remote areas, thus allowing them to develop their skills. However, limited resources remain a problem, as well as the unchanging attitude of professional clubs which continue to reject those talented players

  • Only 200.000 are Qatari citizens

My note: This is beyond disgusting but actually it is not shocking.. It is not something new… everyone has been aware of what’s going on in these evil states for decades, yet, everyone seems to swim together with them while sinking in ignorance — which is the most violent element in society — sad, the West is complicit in this horrendous crime.

The Egyptians dispensed with the life of their slaves in the construction of the pyramids as if they were nothing but throw-away products before that had even been invented in the modern day and age in which we live. Today, Qatar is doing the self-same thing.  There are 1.2 million migrant workers (the vast majority of them are in the construction industry) in Qatar and they are working flat out under the pressure of the Qataris to get the country ready to host the2022 World Cup. But, those modern-day slaves are set to die at the rate of a dozen every week before the projects get finalized. That means there will be 600 deaths every year related to the construction of stadiums and infrastructure for a leather ball that will be kicked around a field for the pleasure of the millions that will be ready to watch the matches played in 9 years.

Not only has Qatar hit the headlines in recent months for keeping westerners hostage in the country under the strange laws of maintaining workers under almost hostage-like conditions because they are refused their passports and cannot leave the country unless their sponsors give the green light and allow them to do so.

Qatar 2022 World Cup

Now, the richest country in the world is also getting itself into hot water because the workers that are from Nepal and India and that have been brought in to do the dirty work in 50°C-temperatures are dropping like flies. But, the Qatari government seems as if it has very little concern over the poor people dying. Is it money that means that life can be dispensed with a will? Or is it that the Qatari government really only lends any importance to their own infrastructure rather than life of the Nepalese and Indian migrant workers?

Half a million extra workers will be needed in the next few years in order for the whistle to be blown around the world for the games to begin on time. Those workers will be primarily from India, Sri Lanka and Nepal. Investigations have shown by the International Trade Union Confederation that autopsies are rarely performed and that deaths are almost systematically put down to heart failure. The majority of the twelve deaths per week in the country on construction sites for migrant workers are due to heart failure? Is that catching?

Cramped accommodation in which the migrants are housed and the squalid living conditions are part of the reason why the migrants are dying.

They have been forced into labor and to work in temperatures that would boil your brain.

As with all migrant workers, salaries are retained by the sponsors that are necessary in order to find work in the country and passports are confiscated to stop them leaving the country.

Reports have shown that between June and August there were 44 deaths of Nepalese migrants working in the construction industry on the building sites of the World Cup.

Perhaps the fact that the government of Qatar has been withholding free drinking water to the workers might have something to do with it.

How do they expect workers to pay for water when their salaries have been withheld too?

Recently there were 30 Nepalese migrant workers that demanded to be granted a safe haven in their country’s embassy and to be helped to return home. They left and were not paid.

82 Indian workers lost their lives in the first half of this year and there have been nearly 1, 500 complaints that have been lodged with the Indian Embassy in Doha. In 2010 and over a two-year period there were over 700 deaths recorded for Indian workers alone.

While the migrant workers are dying the Qatari government is spending the princely sum of over $99.67 billion on the building of infrastructure to host the World Cup. Why isn’t the governing body of football (FIFA) doing anything to stop this modern form of slavery when it has been informed of the situation already? The Qatari government is doing very little to rectify anything.

A spokesman issued a statement on behalf of the Qatar 2022 organizing committee which said: “The health, safety, wellbeing and dignity of every worker that contributes to staging the 2022 FIFA World Cup is of the utmost importance to our committee and we are committed to ensuring that the event serves as a catalyst toward creating sustainable improvements to the lives of all workers in Qatar”.

There is one thing being appalled by the deaths that are occurring at an average rate of one every day at the moment and actually doing something about it.

Some experts believe that if the Qatar government doesn’t react to change the situation in the very near future, then the migrant workers will revolt and the heavy reliance on that workforce will mean that construction will come to a halt.

In 2013 the Qatari government needs to change its attitude towards migrant workers that make up the staple component of their economy, without which they would not be able to function. However, those workers are considered as invisible and disposable components that are simply to be replaced like spare parts. Any economy that doesn’t believe that workers are equally as important as the capital that is spent on investment will fail. The Qataris are living in a prehistoric age in which they consider the working masses to be exploited, used, abused and replaced all free of charge.

When the Qatar 2022 committee was asked why so many Nepalese died from heart-attacks the answer provided was: “This question would be better suited for the relevant health authorities or the government of Nepal.”

The spokesman for the government stated that “The Ministry of Labour is committed to ensuring that all workers are treated in a fair and just manner.”

The World Cup is nothing or at least has very little to do with kicking a ball about the field these days. It has everything to do with revamping a derelict site in a city or showcasing the wonders of modern technology to show the world just how wealthy you are. It has everything to do with regenerating sites and cities. Football’s governing body holds nobody to account, not even itself. After all, how could it? That would be impossible especially when it too demands that South Africa tear down a football stadium and have it rebuilt elsewhere because the view of Table Mountain in Cape Town isn’t good enough for them.

As the world sits back in the recliner chairs, with the crates of beers at the ready, the pretzels and the popcorn to gorge themselves on, I wonder how many people will actually imagine just how many migrant workers have been lowered into the ground or incinerated after dying from supposed heart-attacks, not even granted the dignity of an autopsy by the Qataris. That would have cost too much and they can be replaced anyhow, can’t they?

Revealed: Qatar’s World Cup ‘slaves’

Ten Facts About Slavery in Islam

SlavesInChainsMuslim slave trade in Africa has lasted 14 centuries and continues to this day in places like Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, and Sudan.

  • Over 17 million slaves (mostly black women and children) were transported out of Africa by Islamic traders. Another 85 million are believed to have died en route.

  • The Prophet Muhammad practiced and approved of slavery, and directed his men to do the same.

  • The Qur’an devotes more verses to informing Muslim men of their right to keep women as sex slaves, than it does to telling them to pray five times a day.

  • The Arabic word for “black” (Abd) is synonymous with the word for “slave”.

  • Muhammad’s father-in-law, Umar declared that Arabs could not be taken as slaves, and freed all Arab slaves.  This led to the wide Islamic campaign to capture slaves in Africa, Europe and Asia. 

  • Western slave trade exploited Africans primarily for agricultural labor. The Arab slave trade on the other hand, has more often used men for military service, and women for sex and for their wombs – to produce children who will be Muslims.

  • Many Muslim leaders since Muhammad have had harems of hundreds (or even thousands) of non-Muslim young girls and women to service their desires.

  • Converting to Islam does not automatically grant a slave his freedom, although this is said to increase the slave master’s heavenly reward.

  • According to Islamic courts, slave masters may treat their slaves however they choose without fear of penalty.

Anti-Christian Terror is Everyone’s Concern

Egypt’s Christians were stunned Monday by a drive-by shooting in which masked gunmen sprayed a wedding party outside a Cairo church with automatic weapons fire, killing several, including two young girls, in an attack that raised fears of a nascent insurgency by extremists after the military’s ouster of the president and a crackdown on Islamists

The persecution of any religious minority anywhere by anyone is an evil injustice. It requires all persons of conscience to speak out and, when possible, take action.

The upcoming 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht makes this an auspicious time to raise awareness about the contemporary violence targeting religious minorities and their places of worship. Of particular concern are attacks against Christian minorities that have occurred with alarming frequency from Syria to Egypt, from Iraq to Pakistan, and from Kenya to Sudan.

Blatter attacks European ‘anti-Africa’ World Cup critics

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 12, 2010

Changing the world’s perception of Africa seems to be a difficult task. It really is amazing to see blind Europeans in today’s interconnected, interdependent and globalized world. The world saw a fantastic “Confederations Cup” in South Africa last year, and, even Angola hosted a colorful and well-organized Africa Cup of Nations in 2010. As The World Cup is a hugely lucrative event which will attract travel business into South Africa, Ethiopian Airlines is seen as one of those privileged that could become among the most profitable international airlines. So, could the recent tragic crash of the Ethiopian Airlines plane, off Lebanon, be an apparent conspiracy by those greedy money-sharks to disrupt the business of this great African airliner?

(dpa) VANCOUVER,  Feb 11 2010

The president of world soccer governing body Fifa, Joseph Blatter, has lashed out at critics of South Africa’s ability to host this year’s World Cup in the wake of the terror attack on the Togo football team at last month’s Africa Cup of Nations in neighboring Angola.

“It’s nonsense to combine what has happened in Angola with a terrorist attack and link it to the South Africa World Cup,” he told German Press Agency dpa on Thursday in Vancouver ahead of Friday’s opening ceremony for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

“Eleven million tourists travel every year to South Africa,” Blatter added. “Last week an ATP [tennis] tournament was played in Johannesburg, and they didn’t die.”

Blatter’s comments come in the wake of remarks by German Football League (DFL) boss Reinhard Rauball, who demanded South Africa take action following the attack in Angola.

“It’s kind of an anti-Africa movement, this is not right,” Blatter told dpa.

“There is still in the so-called ‘old world’ feeling that why the hell should South Africa organise a World Cup. Why the hell?

“It was easier for them to go down to Africa, the colonialists in the past hundred years, to take out all the best, and now to take out all the best footballers.

“And when you have to give something back they don’t want to go. What’s that? It is a lack of respect, a lack of respect for the whole of Africa.”
