Belgium: Catholic professor sees something fishy in timing of FIFA scandal revelations

Jean Bricmont is a professor at the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium.  He is an indefatigable and consumate anti-Zionist - some have declared that his writings are antisemitic.  He furiously and obsessively attacks Israel and the US on Facebook - his knowlege about what he belives to be the evils of Zionists and those who are not anti-Zionists must be unparalled even by European standards.

As soon as the FIFA scandal was made public, he linked to an article by Israel-basher Jonathan Cook Arrests by US as FIFA mulls giving Israel boot:

"Doubtless, none of this was designed to have – or will have – the slightest effect on FIFA officials as they contemplate whether to infuriate Israel and the US by booting Israel out of world soccer. - [...] Anyone who doubts how seriously Israel is taking the threat of being ousted from FIFA and how actively its supporters are working behind the scenes at the world body should read the comments of Avi Luzon, Israel’s representative to UEFA, European football’s governing body. [...]"

Echoing Cook, Bricmont asks whether it is pure coincidence that corruption charges that have been around for twenty years are only made public today.
