Onyewu, Lilly Are Top U.S. Soccer Players

Reaching peace through soccer

“Maybe Israelis and Palestinians can’t find much in common these days in the areas of security and politics, but there is one subject they can both agree on: soccer.

In a tradition that has been going on for several years, the “Peace Game” will be played Wednesday night in the Spanish city of Seville between a team of Israeli and Palestinian soccer all-stars and a team of Spanish all-stars from the Andalusia region. The much anticipated game is organized by the Peres Center for Peace and is intended to promote peace between Israelis and Palestinians and show that there are ways to find commonalities through sports.”

If only.
