Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with the President of Brazil's Chamber of Deputies Eduardo Cunha on Wednesday along with a delegation of Brazilian parliamentarians.

"We wanted very much to join you last year at the World Cup," Netanyahu told the delegation. "We didn't make it. Now they are trying to prevent us from going to the next World Cup because of political interference in sports and the isolation of Israel," he added, referencing the Palestinians' effort to vote Israel out of FIFA.

"This is not right, it's not fair, and this is what worries us," Netanyahu said. "We are sure that just people in the world will reject this terrible move."
