The original plan had been to stage the match in the northern coastal city of Haifa, at the state-of-the-art Sami Ofer stadium where Israel usually hosts international games.But Israeli sports minister Miri Regev, an outspoken hardliner in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing government, launched a campaign to move the venue to Jerusalem.That hit a nerve with Palestinians, already outraged by US President Donald Trump’s transfer of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in May after he recognised the disputed city as capital of Israel.Guatemala and Paraguay have since followed suit.Israeli Culture Minister Miri Regev wears a dress featuring an image of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem, also known as the Temple Mount, as she attends a screening at the Cannes film festival on May 17, 2017 © AFP / Antonin THUILLIERPalestinians claim the eastern part of Jerusalem, annexed by Israel in a move never recognised internationally, as the capital of their future state.Israel considers the entire city its own “indivisible” capital, and Regev has been at the forefront of the fight to win international backing for that position.Last year Regev, who is also culture minister, turned heads at the Cannes film festival when she arrived in an evening dress featuring the image of a flashpoint Islamic shrine in east Jerusalem.She has publicly supported allowing Jewish prayer at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, currently banned for fears it could spark a backlash by Muslims.The site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, is sacred in both religions and a regular scene of flare-ups between Israelis and Palestinians.Regev’s bid to host the Argentina match in Jerusalem comes after the city in May hosted one of cycling’s biggest races, the Giro d’Italia.The timing of the match carried extra symbolism as Israel celebrates 70 years since it achieved statehood and 44 years since it seized Palestinian east Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War.Speaking to Israeli army radio on Monday, Regev said she had released $694,400 (598,000 euros) to cover expenses incurred by the venue change.“Jerusalem is worth every shekel,” she said.“After we’ve been fighting for embassies to move to Jerusalem, there is absolutely no question.”– Israel ‘red card’ –More money came from the coffers of Comtec, the private Israeli promoter of the event, which according to Israeli and Argentine media paid up to $3 million to the Argentine Football Association (AFA) to make the June 9 game happen.Palestinian Football Association head Jibril Rajoub stands in front of a “thank you” sign addressed to Argentina’s star player Lionel Messi during a press conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah on June 6, 2018 © AFP / ABBAS MOMANIBut Palestinians were equally determined to stop it.Palestinian Football Association head Jibril Rajoub on Sunday urged Messi not to play in Jerusalem and called on fans to burn shirts bearing his name if he did.On Wednesday Rajoub welcomed the about-turn, which he said served as a “red card” to Israel.Pro-Palestinian groups in Buenos Aires had called for protests against the match, saying that “there is nothing friendly about playing the Israeli apartheid game.”Regev’s gambit also came under fire within Israel.At a meeting of parliament’s state audit committee on Monday, chair Shelly Yachimovich raised questions about ticket allocations after only 20,000 of nearly 32,000 places went on sale to the general public.Regev said the remainder were earmarked for the promoter, sponsors, Israeli FA officials and others.Yachimovich said she had also asked sports ministry officials about a claim by one of their colleagues that Regev had conditioned her financial support for the event on having an on-pitch photo opportunity and handshake with Messi.“They strongly denied it,” Yachimovich later told Israel army radio.“We can only wait and see,” she added. “None of us would fall off our seats if it did happen.”Regev was also asked about reports that Messi had said he did not intend to shake any politician’s hand.A Palestinian woman prays near the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem on the third Friday prayers of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan on June 1, 2018 © AFP / Ahmad GHARABLIShe said she was not aware of any such statement.“Let’s wait for Messi and we’ll see who will shake hands with whom,” she said.Following the news of the Argentine retreat, Israeli media carried reports of grumblings against Regev, even among aides to Netanyahu.The premier is himself a vigorous promoter of Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem and has received strong backing from Regev.According to pro-Netanyahu Israeli daily Yisrael Hayom, aides felt that if the match had remained in Haifa, opposition to it taking place in Israel would have been less effective.“Senior sources in Netanyahu’s circle harshly attacked minister Miri Regev for moving the game to Jerusalem,” the paper wrote.“They asked, ‘Why was this necessary?’”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Argentina’s forward Lionel Messi attends a training session at the FC Barcelona ‘Joan Gamper’ sports centre near Barcelona

festering Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the fore.The Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires confirmed Tuesday that the pre-World Cup friendly international had been cancelled, citing threats against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

Credit: Madelyn Grant / Lantern photographerThe No. 18 Ohio State women’s volleyball team bounced back from a pair of 3-0 losses by topping both Rutgers and Maryland over the weekend.Against the Scarlet Knights (7-20, 0-14), the Buckeyes (18-8, 9-5) carried the momentum from the beginning of the match, as Rutgers tallied a .013 attacking percentage for the match and lost in straight sets (25-9, 25-18, 25-13).The Buckeyes’ largest lead against the Scarlet Knights came in the first set, where they started the match on a 21-6 run.While junior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell led all players in kills with 11, senior outside hitter Erin Sekinger and sophomore middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe had 10 and nine kills, respectively. They all outscored the Scarlet Knights’ kills leaders junior outside hitter Alex Lassa and sophomore middle blocker Lauren Cloyd, who each had six.Sophomore libero Valeria León had a career-high five service aces, marking a career-high in points, as well.Coach Geoff Carlston said after the win that he doesn’t expect sophomore outside hitter Kylie Randall to return this season, because she has an injured ankle.Scarlet Knights senior setter Nicole Bayer, a native of Concord, Ohio, led her team in assists with 14 and added six digs.Even though Rutgers is the only team in the Big Ten without a conference win, Sekinger said the team always makes adjustments regardless of its opponent.“We just had to really focus on handling our own business because we don’t like to take teams lightly in the Big Ten because they’re in the Big Ten for a reason,” Sekinger said. “So we just had to focus on doing the little things.”Against the Terrapins (9-16, 2-12), the Buckeyes withstood a run by Maryland after the second set to win the match in four frames (25-16, 20-25, 25-19, 25-12).Freshman outside hitter Luisa Schirmer and Sekinger each tallied 13 kills, while Campbell added 10. Junior middle blocker Tyler Richardson had eight kills on 12 total attacks for a .583 attacking percentage.After the match, Richardson said the team meshed well on Friday night.“This week (in practice) we really focused on defense and being able to work our middles into the offense,” Richardson said. “Our setter did a great job and we played great as a team. Our defense and offense tonight was really good.”Sophomore setter Whitney Craigo, a native of Avon Lake, Ohio, led the Terrapins in assists with 22 while providing two service aces and two digs. Junior outside hitter Emily Fraik, a native of Wyoming, Ohio, had seven digs, three service aces and three kills.The Buckeyes are currently tied with No. 12 Purdue (19-7, 9-5) in the Big Ten standings, with four teams ahead of them.The Buckeyes are set to travel to No. 9 Illinois (19-6, 11-3) and Michigan (11-13, 6-8) this week.
