Qatar used every dirty trick to secure the World Cup. All everyone had to do was overlook that…
1. Qatar is an Islamist tyranny, tied in with the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, the Taliban and Iran.
2. It widely uses slave labor, killing thousands of workers to construct its postmodern pyramids.
3. It runs under Islamic law. While the Saudis have moderated somewhat (only to be blasted by media campaigns led by Qatar and operatives like Jamal Khashoggi) Qatar pretends to be moderate. The pretense collapsed when the myth hit the reality in a glass of beer.
Qatar has banned beer at World Cup football stadiums, just two days before the opening match, the New York Times reported Friday.
The decision comes after several changes to the rules on the consumption of alcohol caused tensions between FIFA, world football’s governing body, and the Muslim host country, where drinking in public is prohibited.
However, beer will still be available in luxury suites reserved for FIFA officials and other wealthy guests, the New York Times reported citing an official who asked not to be named.
Everyone else can go to hell.
Islamic law on the subject is pretty clear. Qatar not only operates under Sharia law, but uses its influence operations through platforms like its Al Jazeera propaganda network, not to mention the Muslim Brotherhood, to inflict them far beyond its borders.
Western infidels allowed themselves to be lied to, likely bribed and beguiled into believing that Islamists don’t take their own religion seriously. They do. They’re willing to lie, cheat and kill on the way to getting there, but they will still get there. And you will not get any beer, infidel.
Qatari officials has changed their minds on the subject of alcohol, forcing Budweiser — which has the exclusivity to sell beer at World Cup matches — to relocate stalls selling beer outside the stadiums because the Qatari rulers wanted alcohol to be less prominent. Now it has been banned altogether. FIFA said in a statement.
That’s a problem because FIFA has a €72 million contract with Budweiser. The brewing giant tweeted “Well, this is awkward…” after the news broke.
Hopefully, Budweiser sues everyone involved, including FIFA officials and Qatar.
That said, how could anyone believe that Osama bin Laden’s favorite platform would be okay with booze? Did anyone really expect Budweiser at the state sponsor of the Muslim Brotherhood?
But at least in Europe, there can be criticism of Qatar. In the United States, Qatar has a death grip on our elected officials, on the media and on D.C. It outright controls Brookings and the media keeps repeating its Khashoggi propaganda.
In Europe, they talk back. Here they just bow to Qatar.
The Qatari minister claimed that there are inaccurate numbers being reported on the deaths of migrant workers and that “some media, unfortunately, said that Qatari nationals are a bunch of terrorists.” He said such reports were “smear campaigns” against Qatar.
Another German MEP, Dietmar Köster of the Socialists & Democrats, said he would not be watching the World Cup, while Miguel Urbán Crespo from the Left group called it “a World Cup of shame” and backed a boycott of the event.
Dutch MEP Peter van Dalen from the center-right European People’s Party said “World Cup 2022 should never have ended up in Qatar.”
Finally, some good bipartisanship.

Well, beer used to be safer to drink than water (probably still is in some areas) which is one reason it was so widely consumed.

Exactly the same rules apply in all uk football (soccer) stadiums.
Rugby allows beer but you can’t have more than 6 pints at your seat at one time.
Brew Dog is a uk brewery and has been openly campaigning against the Qatar hosting.

lol … no more than 6 pints at your seat at one time 🙂

The civilized world accepting and tolerating islam is the root cause of the problem.
Islam should not be tolerated in any shape or form. Not only that, people should act against it. It must be revealed for the true evil, murderous and oppressive ideology that it is. In the schools, by the media and in politics.
The only 3 reason the islamists get a foot hold in the civilized world are:
1- Lies. Muslims lie all the time, and then they ban anybody who reveals their lies.
2- Bribes. Muslims pay off people in education, media and governments.
3- Terrorism. Those who can’t be bought off, or be lied to, are threatened with terrorism.
The free world must fight on all 3 fronts to get rid of this cancer.

Qatar (Gutter) is a state sponsor of jihad terrorism from al Qaeda to Boko Haram to ISIS. Follow the money.
Both Boko Haram and the Taliban are major drug smugglers with Doha Airport their hub. The Taliban kept an “embassy” in Qatar. Migrant workers are modern day slaves, while Qatar is the richest (per capita) country in the world. Kaffirs are under Islamic law there, as Western women who have been raped in Qatar and tried to bring charges, learned the hard way.
Back to soccer…

The Germans talk about how they will boycott the world cup because of their “islamic” treatment of workers and women. But they import Muslims by the boatload who will change their country into an Islamic hellhole. You will bow, infidels.

They call it Bud Light.
An hilarious Yes Minister episode (The Moral Dimension) had a solution to ‘dry’ requirements in Middle East countries. Delegates could be called out of the conference to meet a delegation of Teachers, or to answer a phone call from a Mr Haig or a Mr Smirnoff.

I lived in Saudi Arabia several times between 1975 and 2016 and for shorter periods in Kuwait and Oman. While in the Arabian Peninsula, I visited the Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar from time to time.
The facts are these:
In Saudi Arabia, the sources of potable alcohol are as follows:
*1* The real stuff leaking out of back doors of Embassies, Consulates and Military Missions.
In 1979, the Nepalese Embassy, which was then in Jeddah, as were all embassies at that time, was practically running a liquor store out of the back door. Now that all embassies are in the well-guarded Diplomatic Quarter in Riyadh, things may well have changed drastically.
*2* Siddiqui, a sort of bathtub gin made by clever First World and Filipino expatriates who are both brave and avaricious. Discreet Sid dealers are very seldom caught.
*3* The sort of very easily made-at-home-stuff like wine, beer [hard] cider and **Jeddah Gin**, created simply by fermenting potatoes, citrus fruit, boiled apples, ordinary yeast and sugar. After a few glasses, Jeddah Gin – when accompanied by Schweppes tonic – tastes remarkably like G & T.
Kuwait was officially dry but Sid was known as Flash, as it was in Libya in the seventies.
Qatar had agreeable but direly expensive hotel bars. I was told that there was a black market in Doha for most self-indulgent pleasures.
Billy Corr says
Oman had pleasant hotels and bars. Additionally, foreigners could obtain licenses for off-premises purchases. Fearless Indians supplied expatriates in smaller towns like Ibri and Rustaq at a 100% markup.
Bahrain and, later, Dubai became places of carefree resort for Saudis after Lebanon exploded into war in 1975. Not merely was the Demon Drink available 24/7, but so were hookers from Morocco, India, Tanzania and, later, Thailand and China. There was no scarcity of Pakistani hashish and heroin and – very expensively – even Colombian cocaine was readily available.
The Emirates, formerly Trucial Oman, differ sharply one from another; Sharjah is much stricter than Dubai to this day.
My guess is that the ruling elite of Qatar have decided to placate the strict religious fellows for as long as the World Cup lasts. It will do English soccer supporters no harm to dry out for a short time and, anyway, the really posh dogs will be amply catered for in their gorgeous expensive hotels.

One of these things is not like the others:
• pork rinds
•the Golden Rule
But did they use every trick in the book? I thought they only used the first one: money. Plus the current western regimes also support the moslem brotherhood, the Taliban, the Iranian mullahs and probably al Quaida/isis or whatever they call themselves now.
