VIBES – Tarek Shadid and the Palestinian Barcelona fan club

Jerusalem24 – To cover the Barcelona – bitar game in Jerusalem, we had the pleasure of interviewing Tariq Shadid, the president of the Palestinian Barcelona fan club as well as a soccer agent. We delved into why Palestinians objected to the game being held in east Jerusalem, why the game was called off, and what would have been at stake if it hadn’t been called off. We also talked about how  General Jabril Rajoub, the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS) as well as a group of lawyers and activists, were involved in preventing the game from happening in East Jerusalem. Shadid also provided us a preview into Barcelona’s future association with the Palestinian fan club that include special membership cards and extra privileges.
