Mohamed Elneny receives criticism from a Jewish Minister for his support to Palestine
Arsenal midfielder showed his support for the Palestinians via Instagram which outraged a Jewish Chief.
Egypt and Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny is at the focal point of a column over a post to his colossal after voicing his “heart”, “soul” and “backing” for Palestine, making an offended Jewish boss urge supports and the English FA to act.
ElNeny posted a photograph of a man holding a Palestinian banner before a group in a demonstration of his sentiments on the current struggle between Palestine and Israel.
The 28-year-old upheld up the post, which is said to have incorporated a picture called ‘Palestine Lives Matter’ highlighting a diagram of Israel loaded up with favorable to Palestine pictures, by telling his Instagram followers “My heart, my spirit, my help for you, Palestine.”
That prompted Tal Ofer, of the UK Board of Deputies, to contact club benefactors including Lavazza Group, who said: “We’ll quickly connect with Arsenal to comment that we are worried about the club being related with such a message.
In a proclamation, Arsenal disclosed to the Jewish Chronicle that ElNeny was “entitled to communicate what he believes.”
