 Former Qatari rider ostracized for kind words about Israel

Former Qatari rider Hamad Al-Suwaydi has apologized for his kind words about Israel following a wave of harsh criticism from his compatriots. He gave an interview for Kan 11. The former sportsman said that the Israelis can visit Qatar during the World Cup, which will be held from November to December. Israeli citizens will be warmly welcomed, he said, because “Doha belongs to everyone.” Al-Suwaydi in Qatar was immediately attacked with criticism and accusations of a pro-Israeli position. The ex-racer had to apologize. "I apologize for my interview with the Israeli channel and declare my solidarity with the Palestinian cause. Thank you for the wise advice and kind words that reminded us to follow the instructions of our Prophet,” he wrote on Twitter.
