Another Instance of Life Being a Beach For The Israel-Haters

Here are the final moments of the 2023 Final of the Eurowinner Cup in beach soccer (yes, I did not realize that was a sport either) between Lenergy Pisa Beach Soccer and Falfala Kafr Qassem BSC, which went to a penalty shootout.

Notice the Hebrew on the shirts of the “green team” Falfala Kafr Qassem BSC? Yes, they are Israeli.

Israeli Arab, more specifically. And proud to be representing Israel.

“This is an unforgettable moment for us, a dream come true,” said Yatim, as reported by Ynet. “We’re very proud to represent Israel and the Arab community. We made history … This is the result of hard work that took many years, and it paid off for us. Every year we prepare, try to do our best, and we were successful this time.”

Israel’s President Isaac Herzog congratulated the team on its historic win in a Hebrew-language Twitter post where he also called their victory “an impressive effort and an impressive achievement in a special sport.” He added, “Kfar Qassem is on the map!”

This has to be more uncomfortable for the haters who cry out “apartheid” than sand lodged up where the sun don’t shine.
