To start another conflict and its destroyed again?
2. Dont bother we will destroy it next time around
3. FIFA to tell the terrorists the stadium is to play football
Just like that! The stadium is for football, not for a rocket launch! Israel doesn`t give a damn where you are when launching rockets to his country! Israel gives you death wherever you are if you threaten him and his people! Israel is a recognized country by UN as a democratic and independent country! And IDF is protecting it and it`s citizens, no matter they`re black or white, arabs or jews! Who live in Israel don`t like it, is free to leave!
4. FIFA to rebuild of Gaza statdium
Why not just pay to rebuild the missile launching pads? Wouldn't that be more cost effective in killing Jews?
5. Included with hidden
rocket launching pads ?
6. Gaza Stadium
I hope that this time the original plans include inbuilt rocket launching pads and storage units.

7. So much money what about the 'starving pals"?
So much for publicity.
bad Assed Jew ,
8. Playing the FIFA way
"INTEGRITY: We believe that, just as the game itself, FIFA must be a model of fair play, tolerance, sportsmanship and transparency . . ." and when games are not scheduled, FIFA - backed stadiums may be used as arenas for terrorism. Is that correct, FIFA?
9. Soccer repairs
The FIFA should build annual rebuilding of this Gaza pitch into their annual budget. This won't be the last time, unfortunately, that Israel will be forced to damage or destroy it. The Arabs won't ever learn their lessons until we deliver a KO punch.
10. What about
proof that it was used for rockets?
@7 so much money to bomb, shoot etc. Palestinians, what about the "starving" Israelis?
11. #10 Sarah
There is no lack of proof. You will have to try better.
12. It's a statement and condemnation,...
FIFA has decided to be completely ignorant about the use of soccer and other sports fields in Gaza as rocket launching pads. In their blind hatred of the Jewish state they will build the sports fields again regardless of Hamas' evil intents. May G-d do to them as they deserve.
Oh c'mon now! Now you're adding the FIFA to the never-ending list of existential threats to Israel? Aren't you guys a bit too paranoid?
15. #10 - there's plenty of video evidence
If you haven't seen it, its your own fault. But firing at the stadium was never contested by intl bodies who DID see the evidence and know the rules of war as they apply under the Geneva Convention.
Once a building or infrastructure is used in hostilities, it loses its civilian protection.
First, Israel doesn't blame the "Palestinians" for starving Israelis, like Hamas does to Israel.
Second, starving today is better than being dead tomorrow, and Israelis know this. Whether the IDF returned fire to the terrorists or not in order to feed " Starving Israelis", the Gazan war crimes would continue.
16. #14 - you have no problem with FIFA turning a blind eye
to a soccer stadium being used in terror operations??
It's completely against their own stated by-laws and yet they've given "Palestinians" a free pass, and lambasted Israel for defending itself according to the Intl rules of war which allowed the stadium to be targeted in the first place.
If that doesn't smack of bias, what does?
