But periodically something does happen that shows that mankind is deep inside very good and that we all do care about the injustices committed against those being oppressed.....Such is what I found in the following article that comes from the My Catbird Seat website, at www.mycatbirdseat.com. The article is entitled: "Algeria To Donate World Cup Prize Money To Gaza", and as the article title states, the Algerian national World Cup Soccer team is indeed giving their entire $9 million prize money to the impoverished and brutalized people of the Gaza Strip..... I have that article right here for everyone to see for themselves, and I do have some follow up thoughts and comments to follow:
Algeria to donate World Cup prize money to GazaJuly 4, 2014
“They need it more than us,” 26-year old (Striker) Islam Slimani said, whose club is Sporting Lisbon.
The manager of the team hasn’t yet officially confirmed Slimani’s statement.
June, 30 the team from Algeria lost 2:1 to the Germans the Round of 16 in a fierce battle.
Germany team needed extra time to beat Algeria and reach the quarter-finals.
Algeria was the only Arab country playing in the Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The Desert Foxes from North Africa won the respect of the football fans after the team became one of the leaders in Group H.
The Algerians pushed through round of 16 for the first time, giving their fans plenty of reasons to cheer and smile.
NTS Notes: This one definitely shows that there is indeed some humanity and love for our fellow man left on our planet after all...
Yes, I am a huge soccer fan, as anyone has seen in my Sunday weekly rants, and I have been following the World Cup in Brazil for the last month..... I do remember when the Algerians were finally eliminated in the first knockout round by the German team, and reports that the Algerians were paid handsomely by the Algerian government for their efforts in Brazil... But now to turn around and give all of that money to the people being brutalized by the criminal Israelis in Gaza is truly heartwarming indeed....
I say good for the Algerians for their concerns about Gaza....Hopefully this action will gain world attention for the plight of the people locked up in the worlds largest concentration camp known as the Gaza Strip and what they are presently being subjected to by the brutality of the Israelis...
