Argentina vs Iceland

We arrived late last night to our hotel in Moscow after a lot of traveling. Had to get some rest before tomorrow’s warm up game (for me).

Today we got to see Iceland earn their first ever World Cup point and Leo Messi miss a penalty kick at the Spartak Stadium. Good match.

This week in terrorism

Europe, Charlie, and Hamas

While the European Union debates whether Hamas should be in their “terrorist organization” list, France is hit by two terrorist attacks from islamic extremists.

Hamas condemns the one where Jews were not directly targeted (Jews died in both) but not the one on the kosher supermarket. But then there’s a rally in Hamas-controlled Gaza “in support of French terrorists, Islamic State”.

Later in Israel, a terrorist stabs a bunch of people in Tel Aviv. Of course Hamas praises the attack as a “heroic and courageous act.”

Keep debating, Europe.

Bonus: Did you hear about the CNN anchor quitting over his intelligent tweets on the matter?

Argentina

Over twenty years after the horrific terrorist attack in AMIA, nothing has been solved yet even though it is widely known that the attack was perpetrated by Iran and Hezbollah and there’s evidence the Argentinian government was bribed to block the investigation. Now the Argentinian Prosecutor Alberto Nisman is found dead on the eve of eve of a congressional hearing. Suicide? Yeah right. More info.

It’s inconceivable that a government would work to protect those responsible for an attack on its territory that killed over 80 Argentinian citizens. But this is exactly what’s happening. Also, this happened this week in Argentina.

Depressing.

Argentina VS Nigeria

Hard to keep the blog up to date.

Here are some photos from yesterday’s game. I hope they are up to Jaramillo’s high standards. Today we went to see some wild animals, more on that later… Lots of partying in South Africa.
