A game of two halves

It's funny how the same story can be reported in radically different ways depending on who is doing the reporting.

FIFA, football's international governing body, has decided (after a two-year trial period) that players will be allowed to wear religious head covering such as hijabs, turbans or kippot. Here is the report from Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Notice the illustration showing a Tel Aviv player wearing a kippah. Notice, too, the report that that the Israeli football federation lifted its domestic restriction on religious head-coverings following intensive lobbying from both Israeli footballers and a (Jewish) Israeli cabinet minister. Of course, in Israel the most immediate effect of the rule change will be the appearance of kippot (in team colours) both at home and when Israeli teams play abroad.

Now consider how Bonni Benstock-Intall, the Hitler supporter who runs the BareNakedIslam hate site, reports the same story. As soon as I read the Haaretz piece I just knew that Bonni would have posted on it, and I accurately predicted the line she would take. For Bonni, this has nothing to do with a concerted campaign by Israeli footballers and politicians but shows FIFA "caving to Islamist pressure". All her illustrations show women wearing hijabs, as though that was going to be the most visible sign of the change (it would be great if women's football had that kind of exposure) but she admits in an aside that "the decision by FIFA will allow female players to wear the veil during games and will be extended to male players for wearing headrags". Charming, just charming: this soi-disante Jewess refers to every kippah-wearing Jewish male as wearing a "headrag".
