Brazilian Government Condemn Israel … Israel Hit Back And Condemn 7-1 World Cup Defeat

It seems that, even in the world of politics, Brazil still can’t hide from their 7-1 drubbing at the hands of Germany on home soil during the 2014 World Cup.

Just when things looked to be cooling down Brazilians faced another back-hander as the spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Israel, Yigal Palmor, slammed their embarrassing defeat to the eventual champions.

On Wednesday, a statement from the Brazilian government said that Israel’s action in Gaza was disproportionate as violence continues to escalate in the middle east.

However, Palmor ridiculed the statement and hit back referring to the semi-final result.

Palmor said: “Israel’s response is perfectly proportioned in accordance with international law. This is not football. In football, when a game ends 7-1, that is disproportionate.”

Would anyone like to show this man this “disproportionate” game from February 2002?
