Soccer club hosts teen terrorist Ahed Tamimi, gifts her personalized soccer shirt in public ceremony.
Real Madrid, a Spanish soccer club, on Friday hosted teen terrorist Ahed Tamimi.
Tamimi served an eight-month prison sentence for attacking IDF soldiers, and has since said that her goal is to "eliminate Israel."
Tamimi met with Emilio Butragueño, a former Real Madrid player.
She also received a soccer shirt sporting her name and the number 9.
Real Madrid welcomed Palestinian teenage activist Ahed Tamimi to the Santiago Bernabeu yesterday after spending eight months in prison for slapping an Israeli soldier in December 2017," the team tweeted Saturday.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon tweeted, "The prestigious soccer club of Real Madrid embraces a terrorist inciting to hatred and violence. Shameful."
"Ahed Tamimi is promoting violence against Israeli citizens. @realmadrid-receiving a terrorist that incites hatred and violence is something that has nothing to do with universal football values."
