Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas meets with Jordan's Prince Ali bin al-Hussein in Amman on June 2, 2015. Sepp Blatter won the FIFA presidency last week when his challenger, the Jordanian Prince, withdrew after the first round of voting. Palestine, which has been a FIFA member since 1998, had recently wanted the governing body to expel Israel over its restrictions on the movement of Palestinian players. Photo by Thaer Ganaim
