In pictures, a wide mockery of a German channel that likened Moroccan players to ISIS

A report broadcast by a German TV channel, likening the Moroccan national team’s raising of the index finger to what ISIS is doing, sparked angry and sarcastic reactions at the same time among social media activists in the Arab and Western world.

The report of the German WELT channel compared a picture in which the players of the Moroccan national team, Abdel Hamid Al-Sabri, Zakaria Abu Khalil and Elias Al-Shaer, raised their index fingers to the top in the dressing room, and pictures of ISIS, considering it infuriating.

“This is infuriating and provocative, this is the sign of the terrorist organization,” said the channel’s news anchor, while the German channel showed pictures of ISIS fighters raising their forefinger.

On the other hand, tweeters and activists on the communication sites rejected the German channel report, and mocked it with pictures of players from all teams and teams raising their index fingers, such as Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, and even Brazilian Ronaldo.

Rather, the irony of the channel’s report has reached the point of publishing pictures of European officials and presidents during their meetings or press statements while raising their index fingers, such as US President Joe Biden and former German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
