Real Madrid, real disappointing.
Palestinian teen Ahed Tamimi, who served an eight-month sentence in Israeli jail for slapping and shoving IDF soldiers outside her home in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh late last year, was honored by Spanish soccer club Real Madrid on Saturday after being invited to visit the team’s stadium.
Tamimi arrived at Real Madrid’s home field of Santiago Bernabeu hours before the anticipated derby match between the club and Atletico Madrid. At the stadium, Tamimi met with Emilio Butragenio, a former striker for Real Madrid who currently serves as one of the club’s senior managers, and was given a team jersey with her name printed on its back.
Butragenio seems like an appropriate name for a story associated with Shirley Temper, given she is a butt who has become famous for her rage. Plus a striker giving the team jersey to another striker – that also seems somewhat appropriate, although in truth, nothing about honoring this vile person is.
