Whatever happened to the notion that a professional referee – in any sport – is supposed to maintain an objective, non-biased view?

 

That is certainly not the case when it comes to Nasser Sadeq Abdel Naby, an Egyptian soccer referee, who recently made his feelings about the Jewish state known to all.

“This Zionist Entity is planted, like a cancerous tumor, in the body of the Arab and Islamic nation,” the referee said in a recent interview with Egyptian television. “We must tear it out and, until we do, we must fight it as much as we can.”

 

“We hope to shake UEFA and FIFA, so that Israel can never again organize a World Cup or any other championship,” Abdel Naby said, referring to the fact that Israel is hosting this summer’s European Under-21 Championship.

 

“UEFA and FIFA will think a thousand times before granting them the privilege of hosting championships. They will remember that the whole world turned against them.”

 

There are no Arab or Muslim countries participating in the Under-21 tournament with England, Germany, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Russia and Spain making up the roster of teams competing.
