Campaign to boycott Adidas
Adidas falls in the test of integrity
Sports is a human effort, bringing together people on the principles of freedom, justice, equality and non-racism and slavery.
For a long time, sport was used to face the associations and countries that practiced racial segregation, discrimination and all forms of ethnic cleansing, occupation and colonization, for example, many sport associations for several types of sports, especially the Federation of Sports English Football (Alrjbe) adopted the principle of boycott the Pretoria regime apartheid in South Africa, and the policy has had a great impact on the dismantling of the apartheid regime.
On March 16, the Zionist occupation organized a competition to run Marathon in the city of Jerusalem. Marathon The path was divided into track between East Jerusalem and West Jerusalem, in an attempt to prove that Jerusalem is the capital of their state.
This action was opposed to all international laws that states that Jerusalem is an occupied city. Many international companies, including Adidas, the manufacture of sports clothing and shoes, had applied to be the sponsor of this unfortunate event that is totally against the spirit of freedom, equality and justice for which sports competitions are held.
This irresponsible act of corporate sponsors to support Zionist entity's Marathon, must not go without punishing those companies that promote killing and occupation. Arab Sports Federation has announced the boycott to all companies that sponsoring the Marathon, including "Adidas" for their contribution in spreading hatred and racial discrimination and their support for the Israeli occupation in Palestine that's killing hundreds and thousands of Palestinians, and deportation of millions of their land in the greatest human tragedy after World War II.
Later, ministers of Sports and youth Arab countries announced the Arab boycott of Adidas from contributing and sponsoring all Arab sports activities.
And For the Holy Jerusalem, the Arab Sports Federation decided that the Arab Marathon will be held next year in countries Archive on the same day of the Israeli marathon in most Arab countries, entitled "Jerusalem is ours. Finally, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Arab Federation for Sport and ministers of Youth and Sports, and we call all sports fans and athletes to boycott all products of "Adidas" as a contribution from them in response to the illegal act made by Jerusalem Occupiers and also as a contribution in the fight against Israel occupation in the Arab-Islamic land of Palestine.
We also call all fans of sports teams being sponsored by Adidas to boycott this company for their support of the occupation of Palestine and Jerusalem. Finally, Adidas has to know that all Arabs and Muslims love Jerusalem and Palestine, and hate the Zionist occupation.
