Normalization of relations between Qatar and Israel is proceeding at a rapid pace, especially after Rabbi Mark Schneier announced that Qatar would allow Israelis to enter Doha.
There seems to be a new phase of Israeli-Qatari rapprochement, this time through the World Cup hosting portal, which is seen by observers as reaching a single stage in normalization.
During the World Cup to be held in 2022, Israeli passport holders will be welcomed in Doha, according to Rabbi Mark Schneier, president of the Hampton Singing Association.
He recently met Secretary-General of the Organizing Committee for the World Cup, Hassan Al-Thawadi, in Doha, Qatar.
The interview was approved by Al-Thawadi in statements to Bloomberg, refusing to comment on hosting the Israelis at the World Cup, but he did not deny it.
Yedioth Ahronoth also reported that the rabbi would serve as a consultant to Qatar in all details regarding the hosting of Israeli delegations during the days of the matches, or any visits to other Israeli delegations to Doha.
Qatar’s arrangements to host Israeli delegations have reached the heights, and they even discussed the provision of kosher meals during the World Cup.
