Rajoub defends decision to withdraw Israel FIFA ban request

Palestinian Football Association President Jibril Rajoub released a statement Saturday in response to the criticism of his decision to withdraw his request to suspend Israel from FIFA. “The decision was made in coordination with the Arab associations and those who supported us, and out of concern of negative reactions from Israel,” Rajoub said. He asserted the decision made at the FIFA Congress to form an internal committee to investigate Palestinian claims was an achievement “that can be counted on.”
