Palestine in Football

Chile located in the South American continent consists a population of 300,000 so big that it created a football team called Palestine Football Club, which was founded in 1920 by Palestinian immigrants to Chile. The team was fined recently £800 by the league officials for wearing a match kit, which had offended the Jewish community. The number ‘one’ on the back of the jersey was designed in the replication of the Palestine map before Israel started taking over the land in 1947.  However the Jewish community wants to live in peace with the Palestinians and want to rebuild their relationship with each other but they will not see defamation and stand for it.  Fernando Arguad the president of Palestino F.C has accepted the negativity its generating and that the uniform will be changed.
