In the UEFA Europa League Third qualifying round, Iranian soccer stars playing for Greece’s Panionios are to face Israeli players of Mccabi Tel-Aviv.

Islamist fascists are exerting enormous pressure on the stars to NOT honor their contract with the Greeks and opt out of playing against the “occupying Zionists”.

Lets hope these stars find the courage to break this costly, cynical and nonsensical Islamist fascists’ taboo, after all, Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, is Iran’s historic, cultural and strategic ally.

Airtight sanctions, a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
