Argentine BDS activist David Comedi will discuss the decision by the Argentine national football team to cancel their game in occupied Jerusalem tomorrow.
1. What were the main factors contributing to the Argentina national team decision to cancel the game in Israel?
3. The game was arranged well in advance but the decision to cancel came only a few days before the fixture date - why was that?
4. The Israeli response has been to send a delegation to Geneva to call for Argentina to be expelled from FIFA for 'religious discrimination'.
5. Alarm bells are ringing in Tel Aviv and Washington - what pressures will be brought to bear on footballing and government institutions in Argentina?
