Arsenal Star Mesut Ozil 'donates $600,000 Brazil World Cup Winnings To Gaza' by abdulkayus(m): 5:02pm On Jul 16, 2014
Germany and Arsenal superstar Mesut Ozil is
to donate his £350,000 [$600,000] World
Cup winnings to the children of Gaza
following his country's triumph in the global
spectacle, according to the Middle East
Monitor .
As the conflict in the Middle East rages
following a failed ceasefire, it is claimed
that Ozil is ready to give the £237,000 bonus
he received for helping Germany win the
final, and the £118,000 he received for
Germany's semi-final win, to the occupied
territory.
Ozil, however, is yet to confirm the actual
beneficiaries of his largesse and reports of
his Gaza donation have been disputed, with
some suggesting his winnings have gone to
charities in Brazil instead.
Ozil is of Turkish descent and a practising
Muslim who recites the Quran before games.
He controversially opted not to fast during
the tournament, which fell in the holy
month of Ramadan in which Muslims fast
from dawn until sunset.
Ozil reportedly caused controversy when he
declined to shake a Fifa official's hand
because of his support for Israel.
Arsenal's club-record signing (£42.5 million)
has quickly settled to life in England,
winning the FA Cup with the Gunners before
playing an integral role in Germany's march
to victory in Brazil.
A nine-day outbreak of conflict between
Israel and militant group Hamas has seen
over 1,000 rockets fired into Israel and over
1,300 airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.
Palestinian officials have said that 207
Palestinians have been killed in Israel's
Operation Protective Edge while one Israeli
has died in southern Israel after being hit
by a mortar.
The Gaza Strip is a narrow territory occupied
by Israel currently under a land, sea and
air blockade. According to the United
Nations and aid agencies, humanitarian
conditions have continued to deteriorate
rapidly because of the blockade.
In addition to Ozil's act of generosity, other
Muslim representatives at the World Cup
have also sent their prize money to the
occupied coastal enclave.
After reaching the second round of the
tournament, Algeria donated their £5.25m
prize money to the people of Gaza.
Algeria striker Islam Slimani announced
that the entire squad would donate the
money to the territory because "they need it
more than us", according to a report in the
Daily Mail.

thats a lie. The guy donated to help 23 Brazilian children. Prior to the worldcup he donated money to 11 children but after the mundial. He increased it to 23 cos his team was comprised of 23 players.

It's just a pity that most of you went to school but came out as a disappointment. It'd have been better being an apprentice of a cobbler than wasting so many years in school and still think like a bloody illiterate. It's only on Nland I see xtians attack muslims and vice-versa. Why fight for God? He obviously want it this way and that's why it is this way. HE can make us all a faithful of a religion if HE so wishes.

@OP, I really do wonder y u chose dis particular biased report of Ozil's donation but I'm guessing because of d religious undertone. Anyway for ur info he isn't donating his world cup earnings to anyone but fulfilling a pledge he made of funding d surgeries of 11 Brazilian children before d world cup only dis time he's improved the number to 23 to make up for d German squad dat won d world cup.
Re: Arsenal Star Mesut Ozil 'donates $600,000 Brazil World Cup Winnings To Gaza' by Kelvindwaplord(m): 9:34am On Jul 17, 2014
@OP Get your facts right! He Donated $400,000 To Help 23 Brazillian Children Undergo Surgery.

Anyways I Admire Him For What He Just Did.

While Our African Brothers Were Busy Fighting Over Money , Their European Counterparts Cared Little Or Less About Money. That's Is Why African Football Will Not Grow And NO AFRICAN TEAM WILL EVER WIN THE WORLD CUP. @Least Not In My Generation.

A very commendable gesture from a quality player, as against bunch of mercenaries known as the 'super chickens'.
