Anti-Semitism Turns into Anti-Ghana-ism at the World Cup

Many Egyptians were not pleased with the Israeli flag waving at the World Cup this weekend.

Ghana’s John Pantsil who plays professionally for Hapoel Tel Aviv, kept his pre-World-Cup promise, and waved an Israeli flag after his team’s second goal against the Czech Republic.

Not everyone enjoyed the gesture. Sandmonkey describes the Anti-Ghana-ism backlash.
