This petition is directly addressed to: Mr. Joseph S. Blatter, FIFA President, The behaviour of Algeria's fans, encouraged and sponsored by their officials can not and must not be tolerated. While Egypt was preparing for its final World Cup qualifying game in Sudan on Wednesday Nov.18th, Algeria's fans had totally different plans. An anti-Egyptian massacre or a pogrom. Algeria's fans have attacked Egyptians in Sudan with "knives and swords" they purchased a few days earlier -establishing beyond the shadow of a doubt the premeditated aspect of the attacks, an aspect further confirmed if put in the context of the Algerian victory in that game. A massacre was in the plans, Regardless the game's result. blood of dozens of Egyptian children, women and men in Sudan has been shed at the hands of Algerian gangs which flew to Khartoum, subsidized by the Algerian government, for the sole purpose of affecting maximum damage on the properties, safety and lives of Egyptians, chasing them down the streets of Sudan. Severe injuries are reported and many have been hospitalized, with injuries going from superficial wounds to life-threatening injuries. To this very moment, Egyptians were taking refuge in the houses and stores of the Sudanese, terrified of the mobs surrounded them, and unable to reach the airport. In parallel, the Egyptian diaspora in Algeria has been forced to take refuge in their homes since Thursday November 12th. Their houses have been attacked, their offices ransacked. The Algiers office of EgyptAir was set ablaze. Egyptian companies are pulling out their staff from Algeria's provinces. Anything short of the most severe punitive actions will be a grave affront to FIFA and the values of sportsmanship it upholds and defends, and a surrender to the logic of thuggery and terrorism that Algeria has displayed for the past week. Nevermind Egypt is already out of the World Cup, which doesn't matter now, we strongly urge you to cancel the result of Wednesday 18th, to suspend Algeria's participation in the 2010 World Cup and future competitions until a proper attitude and sportsmanship to be followed by Algeria
