JNS.org – Algeria has reportedly called off a friendly soccer match with Ghana because the team has an Israeli coach, Avram Grant.

According to Algerian media reports, the Algerian team dropped out of the match so that it could prevent Grant from entering the African country.

Algerian journalist Ayman Gada wrote on Facebook that “the Algerian national team canceled the friendly match with Ghana because it refused to host Ghana’s Israeli coach, Avraham (sic) Grant.”

Grant, who was born in Petah Tikvah, has previously managed the Israeli national team and Chelsea F.C. in the English Premier League. He has spent the past two years coaching Ghana’s national team.

    Poor researching!

    Algeria is not an “Arab Country”.

    It is yet another sad example of countries that have been overrun by Islamic Colonisers. It may be run by it’s invaders but the indigenous people are not Arabs.

    The original Algerians are the Berbers, who are now an oppressed minority in their own country and who have not been known to be hostile to Jews or Israel.

    They resent the Islamification of their country and blame France for first colonising, then withdrawing from Algeria leaving a ‘power vacuum’ state ripe for colonisation.
