Barcelona to play game with Israelis, Palestinians
Question of the Day
JERUSALEM (AP) - Barcelona is trying to organize a soccer match against a combined team of Palestinians and Israelis to promote peace.
Club President Sandro Rosell began putting the plan in motion with Israeli President Shimon Peres on Thursday. He is to discuss the game with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank on Friday.
The venue and date weren’t disclosed, but Israeli media reported the exhibition game will take place July 31, possibly at Ramat Gan Stadium near Tel Aviv.
Barcelona’s fans in Gaza were angered last year when the team gave freed Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit a complimentary ticket. Schalit was held captive for five years by the militant Hamas, which rules Gaza.
