Soccer Shirts As Terrorism

by Abby Zimet

Hyperbolic supporters of Israel are charging a Palestinian soccer 

team in Chile with “fomenting terrorist intent” with their new 

uniforms, which ingeniously replace the number 1 with the map of 

Israel, aka Palestine. Chile's Jewish community has demanded the 

shirts be banned and the team apologize for "using the sport to lie 

and hate.” But Deportivo Palestino, founded in 1920 by 

Palestinian immigrants to Chile who now number over 300,000 - 

the largest Palestinian community outside the Middle East - cites 

the hypocrisy of such indignation in light of the abuses of an illegal 

occupation, and defends the image as accurate: "For us, free 

Palestine will always be the historical Palestine, nothing less.” The 

team unveiled the shirts on Jan. 4 during their first game, which 

they won.
