Nations from the Garden of Prosperity Do not Like Losing to countries of the Jungle

    Monday, November 28, 2022   No comments

Continuing the trend of politicizing the first FIFA World Cup ever hosted by an Arab country, which unveiled the prejudice and bigotry of many Western nation-states’ leaders and their media platforms, riots broke Brussels following Belgium’s World Cup loss to Morocco.

This event shows that peoples of the Global North grew accustomed to the sense of entitlement—a deserved abundance of wealth, health, and triumphs. As such, they do not react well to losing and cannot handle not being able to gratify their “wants”. They often refer to protests and riots that may take in countries of the Global South as being symptoms of cultural deficiencies or even biological underdevelopment in "those peoples". Yet, with the first test of loss or unmet want—not need—they find themselves exhibiting even more violent tendencies that they claimed to be part of the DNA of "other cultures"--not theirs.

This event follows other incidents that showed the West’s desire to dictate the conversation on issues that help them sidestep their record poor human rights record and focus on issues that are specific to their societies.

Just days before kickoff, FIFA’s president had to make a long speech defending Qatar’s human rights record and reminding his European friends of their double standard. By the second day of the tournament, he sat next to a German minister who wore the advocacy armband, OneLove, under her jacket and unveiled it once in the stadium, to protest Qatar’s ban on political activities inside the stadiums.

Two days before the match between Iran and the United States, the official US soccer authority scrubbed the word “Allah” from the Iranian flag, claiming that it was an act of solidarity with Iranian protesters. 

This comes after Josep Borell, EU Foreign Affairs And Security Policy Chief gave a speech in which he declaraed that "Europe Is A Garden... The Rest Of The World Is A Jungle". 

Carlos Queiroz, coach of the Iranian national football team, weighed in on these issues

In related news, Carlos Queiroz, coach of the Iranian national football team, sent a fiery message to Jürgen Klinsmann, following the latter's offensive statements, which were characterized by "racism."

Queiroz, through his official accounts on social media, embarrassed Klinsmann in response to the German's accusations.

Iran defeated Wales with two goals free in stoppage time in the second round of the group stage competitions in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

In his statements to the BBC, Klinsmann said about Iran's victory over Wales: "This is their culture and the way they play football, and that is why Queiroz is the right coach for them, after he failed in South America and did not qualify with them for the World Cup, as well as with Egypt." .

He added, "He returned again to Iran, and he had previously worked with them in the past, and the matter is not a coincidence, but rather happens on purpose. This culture is in their country. They go a lot to talk with the referee and the bench also tries to talk with the assistant referees."

He continued, "They are constantly trying to provoke those in front of them to lose focus, and the matter is happening in many other cultures, such as Guatemala, Honduras and Costa Rica, and I witnessed it myself during my work with the United States of America."

But Queiroz replied to Klinsmann, saying: “Dear Jurgen, you took the initiative to tell me Carlos, so I think it is appropriate for me to say Jurgen to you, right?”

Earlier, the Portuguese Carlos Queiroz, coach for the Iranian national team, clashed with a journalist present at the press conference preceding the match against Wales, in the second group competitions of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The BBC correspondent asked the attacker, Mahdi Tarmi, about what she called "protests" in his country, which Tarmi refused to answer.

However, Iran's coach defended his player after the press conference, and Queiroz went to confront the journalist, saying to her: "I ask you one thing now: Why don't you ask other coaches about other cultures? Only that would be fair."

He explained, "Why don't you ask (Gareth) Southgate (England coach): What do you think of the position of England and the United States when they left Afghanistan and abandoned women?"

Queiroz previously clashed with a journalist before the first match against England because of a similar question.

He told him: "How much will you pay me to answer this question? Talk to your boss and promise me the answer. Think about what happened in your country with immigrants."
