From The Daily Star:

YOUNG football fans joined a protest slamming World Cup hosts Qatar over sinister links to a terror group.

The Middle East country – hosting the event in 2022 – is accused of funding Islamic extremists Hamas, who are currently in conflict with Israel.

Hundreds of demonstrators called for Qatar to be stripped of the tourney at a rally outside the nation’s London embassy yesterday.

The protest was organised by Sussex Friends of Israel, together with the Israeli Forum Task Force.

Spokesman Simon Cobbs said: “Football fans deserve better.”

Lawyer Mark Lewis, told the rally: “We should not reward terror by awarding the World Cup to Qatar in honour of its role in financing terror.”
