BARÇA VOTES ABOUT THE SPONSORSHIP BY THE QATAR FOUNDATION

This Saturday is a holiday in Barcelona. It is LA MERCÈ. But in this post I just wanted to comment that today there is an assembly in FC BARCELONA and they have to decide if they support the sponsorship by the QATAR FOUNDATION. As you may know Sandro Rosell, the president, and Pep Guardiola, have both supported the agreement.

TROBA MARTA FERRUSOLA “HORRORÓS” QUE EL BARÇA PORTI PUBLICITAT DE QATAR?

He llegit que Marta Ferrusola trobaria “horrorós” que el Barça promocionés Espanya. Em pregunto que li sembla que faci publicitat de Qatar. Bé, sembla que està d’acord. Una cosa és Qatar i una altra és Espanya, és clar.

“JO NO SÉ SI FRANCO ERA UN DICTADOR PERÒ SÉ QUE EN TEMPS DE FRANCO ES VIVIA MOLT BÉ”

Sandro Rosell - 001

--- EL BARÇA QUE VA SER UN SÍMBOL CONTRA UNA DICTADURA DE FRANCO ARA TÉ UN PRESIDENT QUE NO SAP SI QATAR ÉS UNA DICTADURA ...

Que ningú s’espanti. La frase de dalt no té res a veure amb la ideologia d’aquest blog. Simplement m’ha vingut al cap el que certs simpatitzants de Franco poden pensar sobre Franco.

Ahir parlant sobre una altra dictadura Rosell va deixar veure que no sap si Qatar és una dictadura o no però si sap que a Qatar es viu molt bé. Segons Rosell la Qatar Foundation té un vessant humanitari (jo pensava que era una institució educacional dirigida per la dona del dictador i que, encara que no tota en ella és negatiu, dóna un premi en honor d’un radical que propugna l’extermini dels homosexuals i la submissió de les dones)

És patètic que el president d’un club que és MÉS QUE UN CLUB i que es va caracteritzar per ser un focus de resistència a la dictadura de Franco ara no sap si Qatar és una dictadura.

Respecte al fet homosexual m’hagués agradat sentir de Rosell el següent: “És evident que els homosexuals no tenen a Qatar els mateixos drets que, per exemple, a Barcelona, però el Barça, és un dels clubs més compromesos al món a la lluita contra l’homofòbia. Enguany és el tercer any que participem al Pride Barcelona. La nostra Penya de Gais i Lesbianes és una de les penyes més actives del Barcelona”

Evidentment Rosell no pot dir res d’això. O sigui que no només menysprea el patiment dels homosexuals de Qatar (no admet el que passa a Qatar amb els homosexuals!) sinó que a més a més passa dels homosexuals a Barcelona no fent res contra l’homofòbia.

Però en fi, no tinc res en contra de Rosell. Si ell pot fer un acord amb Qatar i menysprear el que passa amb els homosexuals a Qatar és degut a que molta gent deu compartir també els seus valors on és més important que el Barça guany títols que els valors universals de la dignitat i de la llibertat. Aquí i a la Xina. 


GUARDIOLA VISITS ISRAEL

Noa

 

In this blog I always talk about the Qatar Foundation and its deal with FC BARCELONA. I also mention quite oft the support of the president of Barça and of the coach for the deal. Sandro Rosell, the president, said that you live very well in Qatar and Pep Guardiola, the coach, said that in Qatar there is freedom. He also said that in Qatar there were injustices but like everywhere (That’s not true, in most countries you can be homosexual and this does not mean you are punished by prison like it happens in the dictatorship of Qatar)

Some months ago we also saw how Guardiola supported the bid of Qatar 2022. As you may know Qatar won the bid but now there are allegations that there was brivery.

On the other hand I saw that Qatar Foundation gives an award named after a radical who wants the extermination of the homosexuals. This radical also wants the submission of women and about “his love” for Israel no need to tell you …

So, I am very unhappy that the new tshirt of FC BARCELONA shows the logo of QATAR FOUNDATION on its front. Barcelona city is a place where the homosexuals we have some rights (WE DO NOT GO TO PRISON!!!) so I find outrageous that the most famous club of this tolerant city wears an ad from a place where homosexuals go to jail, there is not democracy and women have minimum rights. A club that talks and talks about its values  and says that is MÉS QUE UN CLUB (more than a club) and at the same time has deals with an homophobic dictatorship seems to me a place with just money money values and no sensitivity at all for sexual minorites (or, currently, miniroties sports too …) I also must say that, as far as I know Barça, a club from Barcelona, does not make any event to fight homophobia. Anybody knows that there is a lot of homophobia in football, so that Barcelona instead of fighting it, it does the opposite: it gets deals with homophobic Qatar!

So, today, it was for me a very big surprise to read a news that does not associate Josep Guardiola with homophobic Qatar or with a foundation (Qatar Foundation) who gives awards named after a radical who loves terrorism, wants the extermination of homosexuals and wants the total submission of woman. This time Guardiola name is not in a news related to supporting deals with homophobic dictatorship of Qatar but in visiting a gay friendly democracy named Israel. It seems that he has been invited by Israel singer Noa.

I know people in Catalonia who have been very silent when it comes to the fact that Guardiola supports Qatar so much. So now I expect the same: that the fact that he is friend of Noa keeps them silent too. I say that because some months ago Noa came to Barcelona and there was a protest. As all the world knows Noa is a singer from Israel very known for trying to bring peace between Palestine people and Israel People. But in Catalonia some accused her to not be strong in condemnation  against some atrocities committed some months ago in Gaza Strip by Israel after Hamas sent rockets into Israel land.

I have read that Guardiola has wanted a low profile in his visit to Israel. I do not understand why. Is he ashamed of visiting Israel? If he is not ashamed of giving so much support to an emirate that is a dictatorship, where women have few rights and where homosexuals go to jail because they are just homosexuals then I do not understand why he should be ashamed of just visiting Israel? Nobody is asking him to support a Israel Foundation or Israel 2026 World Cup. Nobody is asking him to show for Israel the same support that he has shown for the homophobic dictatorship of Qatar. He is just supposed to be in Israel as a guest of one of the people from Israel that is more known worldwide to try to bring peace beween Palestinians and Israelis. That’s something quite honouring and quite the opposite of what Guardiola has being doing until now by just supporting the wealthy dictatorship of Qatar. I am sure that Guardiola disliked the Spanish dictator called Franco. That dictator also put homosexuals into jail. Barcelona was against that dictator. How come then that the president of Barça and his coach now support a deal between Barça and a dictatorship? Are the dictatorships which are far from Barcelona and that have a lot of money less dictatorships than the ones we had at home? Or is it maybe that the Barça is not anymore MORE THAN A CLUB (MÉS QUE UN CLUB)?

Anyway, one thing is for sure, few people in Israel will wear a tshirt from Barça with Qatar Foundation. But he should not worry. Anyone related to Hamas in Gaza strip will be happy to wear it. And any homophobe around the world would be happy to buy it. I received an email some days ago just saying: NO TO HOMOSEXUALITY. ALLAH IS CLEAN. VISCA QATAR! VISCA BARCA!

Let me end this post by sending my greetings to Noa and Mira Awad. I love some of her songs. I hope she comes to Catalonia more often. Maybe she could come with Dana International! (My greetings to DANA and also to the widow of murdered RABIN. With people like them, Israel will always be in my heart)

I also want to congratulate Guardiola for having Noa as a friend. Until now I just thought that his only known friends where the rich people from the banks and from the homophobic emirate of Qatar.

By the way, I imagine that when Guardiola ends its trip to Israel he won’t go to any Arab country because, if things have not changed, most Arab countries do not accept passports with a stamp from someone who has been in Israel.


S’HA VENUT EL BARÇA LA SEVA ÀNIMA?

Aquests darrers dies la premsa local i ara fins i tot l’internacional ens bombardeja tot lloant els valors del FC BARCELONA. La veritat és que jo estic molt d’acord amb tot el que diuen però trobo a faltar que esmentin que a partir d’ara el Barça es financiarà amb milions provinent d’una dictadura homofòba i masclista. però bé, ja he escrit prou sobre el que penso de l’acord amb Qatar.

Aquí us deixo amb la traducció al català d’un article en anglès on també es lloa el Barça però al mateix temps se’ns informa sobre què hi ha darrera de la Qatar Foundation. Recordo que per Rosell Qatar és simplement un “país on es viu molt bé”.

QATAR WILL CENSOR JOURNALISTS WHO WRITE ABOUT SOME ARAB PROTESTS

It is months since I say that FC BARCELONA cannot be sponsored by a dictatorship who punished homosexuality and where the women suffer discrimination.

It is months since I recall that Al Jezeera has a lot to improve.

Now I have read that there is a new draft that will allow the journalists to be free except in those issues where the dictatorship does not want them to be free.

So, the Qatar journalists won’t be able to talk about issues affecting national security or friendly nations. This means that if, for example, the dictatorship of Bahrain or Saudi Arabia, massacre its popululation, the journalists of Qatar won’t be able to write about this.

This is the Qatar that will appear on the tshirts of FC BARCELONA. I am protesting for these for months but it seems that nobody cares.

It seems that money from Qatar make some people in Barcelona to forget some of their values. I imagine that’s the reason why they talk so much about values and values. It is a way to hide the lack of values by having a deal with Qatar.

As a homosexual in Barcelona I feel so humiliated by FC BARCELONA. I even have received homophobic comments who praise the new tshirt with Qatar Foundation and which end saying VISCA QATAR, VISCA BARÇA.

I feel so week. The media in Catalonia are always talking about the big values of FC BARCELONA. Even the international press do the same. It seems that the fight against homophobia is not a problem.

Maybe I cannot do anything so that Barça braks its deal with Qatar but I will do all I can so that a lot of people know that Barça is wearing a tshirt from a country where homosexuals go to jail. Is black people, if Jewish people went to jail, I am sure that Barça wouldn’t have signed a deal. It seems that homosexuals do not deserve attention and care.


NEWSWEEK, QATAR I EL BARÇA

Homosexuality laws

Aquesta nit han fet MÉS QUE FUTBOL al 30 MINUTS de TV3 i la veritat és que no m’ha desagradat el programa encara que jo hauria afegit del perill que els valors del Barça puguin comprometre’s en el futur en portar una samarreta relacionada amb una dictadura homòfoba i masclista anomenada Qatar.

Ara és notícia que el proper 13 de juny la portada de la revista NEWSWEEK serà el BARÇA. Surt una foto amb Guardiola mantejat.

La veritat és que no entenc res. El Barça guanya Champions i Champions darrermanet, rep l’elogi internacional però a l’hora de la veritat li toca ballar amb la més lletja: la Qatar Foundation. Com potser que el Barça que inspira tan a tot el món i del que tan bé es parla hagi hagut de recórrer al patrocini d’un emirat que no és democràtic, que empresona els homosexuals, que limitat a mínims els drets de les dones i que està sota sospita d’haver comprat el mundial de futbol de 2022?

La veritat és que no ho entenc. No hi havia cap altre patrocinador que no fes pudor a masclisme, dictadura i homofòbia i a presumptes suborns?

La veritat és que penso o que bé al Barça hi havia algun interès ocult per fer tractes amb la dictadora de Qatar o sinó aquest món és horrible perquè si ser el millor equip del món, com diuen alguns, no et serveix per poder tenir un patrocinador amb un mínim de bona imatge …

En fi, només de pensar que la Qatar Foundation dóna uns premis a nom d’un radical que vol l’extermini dels homosexuals m’esgarrifa que milions de nens portaran aviar una samarreta que farà publicitat d’aquesta fundació amb el beneplàcit d’un equip que se suposa que té el seu fort en els valors. Doncs menys mal que té valors perquè sinó tingués llavors no em vull imaginar de qui portaria publicitat …

Per cert, ara que tant es qüestiona la FIFA i els casos de corrupció que ha de dir de tot això el Barça, suposat referent mundial dels valors al futbol?
