Lebanese authorities have decided to ban football fans in Lebanon from attending the first game of the last World Cup Qualifying round that will be held in Beirut and will oppose Lebanon to Qatar.
The reason for the ban is that local authorities are worried that some fans might insult Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Hamad Ben Khalifa, which might damage the relationship between the two countries. [Link]
It looks like the last Qatari threat wasn’t a rumor after all.
I call this pure fuckery.
What a pussy nation!!
I didn’t know Qatar’s Emir was so soft.
I don’t see why Football fans would insult the Emir in the first place, I always though Qatar was envious of Lebanon during its height in the 60s.
Anyways, if it comes down to Lebanon’s security, and the security services are giving warning… Sorry, that stadium should only broadcast via Live TV.
Lebanon’s security comes first, and we should put our childish wants aside. The game will be just as fun.
WTF… burn tires!!!!
Whats next? Ask the Lebanese team to lose to not upset Qatar?
