Qatar and the World Cup: ‘International Farce, Moral Atrocity, Arab Tragedy’

Fabulously wealthy little Qatar wanted to make a splash in the world, to become the cynosure of all eyes, however briefly, to be known for something other than its natural gas deposits and its bulging bank account. That is why, back in 2010, the Qataris went to work and bribed FIFA to let it host the 2022 World Cup in its capital, Doha. But that favorable attention Qatar was expecting from hosting the World Cup – well, it hasn’t exactly turned out that way

Money’s conquest of sports has never been as sweeping, unabashed, corrupt, and inhuman as soccer’s World Cup became en route to the month-long tournament that opened on Sunday in Qatar, and which can be decried already as an international farce, a moral atrocity, and an Arab tragedy.

THESE ARAB LANDS ARE UGLY. I WOULD NEVER INVEST 1 DIME IN AN ARAB COUNTRY. THEY ARE JIHAD. WHAT'S THE POINT TO CELEBRATE. THESE SPORTS SHOULD BE PLAYED IN BRAZIL
