The so-called “normalization deals” between the Israeli regime and some Arab governments in recent years have failed to stamp out hatred of people in Arab countries towards the apartheid regime.
Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman Nasser Kan’ani made these remarks in a Twitter post on Wednesday, saying the World Cup 2022 hosted by Qatar has demonstrated disgust against the Tel Aviv regime.
“The FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar has turned into a show of (Arab) people’s disgust against the apartheid Zionist regime and the manifestation of the solidarity of nations with the cause of Palestine,” Kan’ani said.
“The occupying Israeli regime is hated by all nations,” he hastened to add.

In recent weeks, since the football carnival began in Qatar, anti-Israel sentiment has been running high, with football fans from across the world waving the Palestinian flag during the matches.
Football fans have also refused to speak to Israeli journalists covering the World Cup, citing the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories and unbridled atrocities against Palestinians.
Raz Shechnick, a reporter for Yedioth Ahronoth, took to Twitter to share his harrowing experiences in Qatar vis-à-vis sweeping anti-Israel sentiment and pro-Palestine advocacy.
“We didn’t want to write these words, we are not the story here. But after ten days in Doha, we cannot hide what we are going through. We are feeling hated, surrounded by hostility, not welcomed,” he said.
