EU MPs demand FIFA exclude settlement-based Israeli soccer teams from competition

Over 60 Members of the European Parliament on Saturday urged the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) to halt Israeli settlement-based soccer teams from competing in the Israeli soccer league, according to  Al Jazeera.

Addressed to FIFA President Gianni Infantino, the letter, signed by 66 MEPs, demanded the organization "rule that settlement clubs either fully relocate within Israel’s internationally-recognized borders or are excluded from the Israeli Football Association."
