If Qatar wins the right to hold the World Cup, keep in mind that the stadiums will be built by a "slave labour" work force, mostly coming from poor countries such as Nepal, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. The workers will be paid about QR 800 per month (about $200) and will have to live in labour compounds where the living conditions are horrific. All this talk of air conditioned stadiums is so misleading. The tens of thousands of workers imported to built these stadiums will not benefit from any air conditioning.
Qataris are both the richest and also the laziest people on earth. They basically do no work at all due to the creation of a welfare state.
The very fact that such a rich country treats their labour force so inhumanely is the very reason why it would be so wrong to give Qatar the right to host the World Cup. Money must not be put in front of basic human rights - please wake up FIFA officials and think carefully. Do not fall into the trap being planted by the corrupt royal family members - the Al Thani's, who basically control everything that goes on in this tiny country.

Qatar not only treats foreign workers as slaves when they easily have the money not to, but they also support terrorism and Islamic fundamentalism. Beneath the 5* airline that serves an assortment of champagnes and spirits, the futuristic-looking buildings, and its cosmopolitan image, is a system that still punishes women for reporting rape and puts enormous pressure on Hindu and Christian workers to convert to Islam.

They host a US military base but it is well known that they tipped off Osama Bin Laden before a US cruise missile strike against him that would have prevented 9/11 from ever happening. They are the ones shoveling massive amounts of arms into the hands of the most radical Sunni jihadists in Syria and Egypt, using the local people as cannon-fodder for their own geopolitical games, all while driving their Lamborghinis and having champagne and blonde-haired escorts from Europe in the comfort of their ostentatiously extravagant palaces. They have also used Al Jazeera to brew up the 'Arab Spring,' demanding "democracy," while maintaining nothing of the sort at home. Qatar is doing more to spread Wahabbi terrorism than Saudi Arabia and should be considered the #1 enemy of the civilized world!
