FIFA RECOGNITION OF FOOTBALL TEAMS IN THE OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES

That this House notes with considerable concern that six football teams based in illegal Israeli settlements are playing in the Israeli football league, in the 3rd, 4th and 5th tiers, organised by the Israel Football Association (IFA), a member of FIFA; further notes that UN resolutions and international law are clear that those settlements, built in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, are not part of Israel and are illegal under international law; is concerned that football is being used to legitimise the illegal occupation and the illegal settlement project; calls on FIFA to resolve this situation and prohibit teams based in illegally occupied territory from playing in the Israeli football league, which is accountable to FIFA; and calls on FIFA to stop business activity that supports those settlements.
