Palestinians push for Israel football suspension

The Palestinian Football Association is asking Fifa to suspend Israel from world football, just as it once suspended apartheid South Africa and Slobodan Milosevic's Yugoslavia.

The PFA says the Israeli FA has violated rules relating to racism, players' free movement and where clubs are based.

Suspension would mean Israeli teams would not be able to take part in the Champions League and Euro 2016.
