Palestino Soccer Team infuriates Chile’s Jews

Chile’s Jewish community outraged over Palestinian soccer team’s jerseys

Many in Chile’s Jewish community are outraged over a Palestinian soccer club’s jersey that depicts all of Israel as Palestinian land.

Club Deportivo Palestino of Chile released its new jersey that includes the number “1” in the shape of Israel and the Palestinian territories, implying all of the land is Palestinian, The Associated Press reported.

The president of Chile’s Jewish Community, Gerardo Gorodischer, is demanding an apology from the club and asking Chile’s soccer association to pull the jerseys.

Some of this reaches the absurd.

The ultimate answer to the Mideast may be to relocate the Palestinians out of the contested areas. I know that sounds awful; but the destruction of Israel would be worse.

I am not some heartless person. The Palestinians in the Mideast are besieged by both the Israelis and the Palestinian’s fellow Arabs. This abuse has driven the Palestinians nuttier and more violent than they were to begin with.

I am NOT going to diminish the Palestinian’s violence, nor the abuses the Palestinians are forced live under – whether under Israel’s harsh military control, or the even harsher Arab rule in Syria, Lebanon, Eygpt, etc.

However, there are 22 Arab states. Should Israel be destroyed to create a 23rd Arab state?!

I think not!

Compensated relocation of the Palestinians to elsewhere – as bad as that sounds – may be the only solution left, outside of eventual nuclear war.

There are no happy endings in the Mideast.

Paraguay, with its politically and economically stable environment, could be an ideal springboard for Israeli technologies in Latin America, a minister from the country told The Jerusalem Post in an interview last week.

Paraguayan Trade and Investment Minister Gustavo Leite spoke with the Post on the sidelines of the Water Technology and Environmental Control Exhibition and Conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday about the plethora of trade opportunities available between Israel and the South American nation.

With a favorable tax system and a stable business environment, Paraguay could be the key to providing Israeli innovators with comfortable and reliable access to the broader Latin American markets, Leite stressed.

Wow! Is that a change?!

A few years ago, they were saying Ciudad del Este was a terrorist haven (that was a bit exaggerated).

This is good news.
