A little boy killed by Israeli rockets, and his father in a total state of shock and disbelief that his son is already dead … The father is screaming and talking to his dead son saying, while shaking him hard: “wake up, father brought you a toy” !!

I’M SO DONE
Oh my god
Europe is resounding with cries of ‘immigrants, go home!’ Here’s what would happen to the World Cup if they did.
Can we just take a second to see the colonial extraction of talent that happens with these European teams? France and Germany would not have teams if they made good on their racist, anti-immigrant rhetoric. It is important to keep in mind that these competitions like the world cup are not a reflection of national prowess for many European teams, but a flexing of imperial muscle.
I can’t imagine why Google prefers their FIFA World Cup Doodles over my well-researched one. Oh well, their loss I guess.
