NGO files complaint to FIFA against Palestinian Football Association

The Palestinian Media Watch NGO has filed a formal complaint to the disciplinary committee of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the international governing body of football (soccer) against the Palestinian Football Association (PFA) and its president, Jibril Rajoub.
According to the complaint, the PFA and Rajoub have violated the organization's statutes and disciplinary code by "supporting and glorifying terrorism, inciting hatred and violence, promoting racism, and prohibiting the use of football as a bridge for peace."
As such, the PMW called for the "suspension or expulsion" of the PFA for the breaches, in accordance with FIFA's regulations.
