This year Barcelona...

Here's a bit of a coincidence. I think what has happened here is that Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit. was invited to an event at Barcelona FC and an outcry led to the invite being cancelled. Here's Yael Kahn in the comments to the previous post:

There is already some good news from Barcelona -
FC Barcelona President replied that Barca is not inviting Gilad Shalit, though the media that had claimed he is has failed to report he is NOT invited.

 If Barca would have hosted Shalit it is quite likely we would have witnessed even stronger BDS protests during the classic on October 7

So, this year Barcelona after all. I'm glad we didn't have to wait.
