Palestine gathered the Arab masses in this period, through the matches of the Arab teams and teams. The scene was expressive, but on the other hand, there were some voices opposing it.
There were many matches between the Arab teams and teams during this period, in which the flag of Palestine was raised and greetings to it and its people. These scenes were amazing, goals and titles were amazing. Palestine was the most prominent “title” in the coronations, and was the first victor.
This happened, for example, with the Algerian and Tunisian national teams (photo) and their fans in the Arab Cup, as well as with the Egyptian Al-Ahly and Moroccan Raja teams and their fans in the African Super Cup match.
The Arab masses reacted with emotion to every flag of Palestine that was hoisted in the stadium or in the stands, and with every sign of Palestine. This resulted in Arab public solidarity that gathered many around Palestine, and confirmed that it would always remain the compass.
On the other hand, there were few voices that disagreed with this wonderful spectacle; Voices are either ignorant of what you say or you mean. It was said that “everything that happened is nothing but a show and talk that does nothing for Palestine.” As for others, they said that raising the flag of Palestine has become a “fashion” that teams and teams circulate, and it does not advance or delay anything.
These voices must be responded to, and to say that what these players and fans did in raising the flags of Palestine and chanting for Palestine is of importance in the battle of awareness, image and word with the Israeli enemy. Certainly, the occupation entity was resentful of every Palestinian flag raised by players and fans in stadiums; This is the enemy who wants to erase the word Palestine from the minds and memory of the Arab masses.
What happened has significance during the rush of some Arab regimes towards normalization. What happened reflects the true pulse of the Arab street and the masses, and this is the case in particular in the Moroccan Raja’s audience singing its famous “Rajawi Palestinian” before the match against Al-Ahly of Egypt, because it reflects the constant pulse of the Moroccan street with Palestine and its people, in contrast to the Moroccan government’s normalization with the occupation entity. .
It must be said to these voices that raising the flag of Palestine remains a little towards Palestine, but it is important, and it is a duty, and it must be a lot, and it must be everywhere, in the stadium, the house, the street, and the store, so that it is always before the eyes, and is always ingrained in the hearts and minds.
