The president of FIFA has demanded that America apologize for it’s history.
“The West should apologise for its history for ‘3,000 years’ before taking aim at the continuing human rights abuses, including modern slavery, seen in the Islamist kingdom of Qatar, the president of FIFA said,” reported Breitbart.
“Speaking from Doha, Gianni Infantino, the president of the governing body for international football (soccer) accused people in Western nations of ‘hypocrisy’ for highlighting the human rights record of the Sharia-governed governed country, asserting that because historical wrongs were committed in other countries, they don’t have the moral standing to call out modern slavery today,” according to Breitbart.
FIFA President Demands West Apology
“We have been taught many lessons from Europeans and the Western world. I am European. For what we have been doing for 3,000 years around the world, we should be apologising for the next 3,000 years before giving moral lessons… This one-sided moral lesson is just hypocrisy. I wonder why no-one recognises the progress made here since 2016,” he said.
“If Europe really cares about the destiny of these people, they can create legal channels — like Qatar did — where a number of these [migrant] workers can come to Europe to work. Give them some future, some hope,” he added.
Infantino, whose family immigrated to Switzerland from Italy prior to his birth, continued: “Of course I am not Qatari, Arab, African, gay, disabled or a migrant worker. But I feel like them because I know what it means to be discriminated and bullied as a foreigner in a foreign country.”
FIFA president Gianni Infantino says the West is in no position 'to give moral lessons' to Qatar, adding that European nations should instead apologise for their own histories.

“The comments from Infantino, which are rooted in modern leftist ideology, come despite the fact that his homeland of Switzerland never engaged in the practice of colonialism or indeed the slave trade, while also ignoring the Arabic slave trade, which lasted longer and enslaved many more Africans than the Atlantic slave trade in the West,” reports Breitbart.
