The head of the Palestinian Football Association urged FIFA to give Israel a "red card" and expel it from the international federation, claiming Israel had refused to allow several Arab youth teams in the Palestinian territories, AFP reported on Thursday.

"We ask (FIFA) for a red card, because the yellow card has been raised now for a long time," Jibril Rujub, a Fatah official, said."We are clinging to the red card to take away the Israeli occupation's legitimacy and we will not accept any compromise," he added.
