Monopolizing International Events

Qatar is going to host 2022 World Cup. Arabs and Muslims are happy that the World Cup will be hosted for the first time in history in the Middle East in a Muslim country. But, when the result for the 2022 World Cup bid was announced the crowd was not that happy as when they applauded very warmly for Russia. Why? One can think of many reasons.

The President of the United States, Barack Obama, said commenting on the US loss of the 2022 World Cup bid:

I think it was the wrong decision

Was choosing Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup a wrong decision? Why?

I, on the other hand, am pleased for the Middle East to have a chance to host the World Cup.

A side note: The caption of the picture in the article is not right. What an embarrassing mistake.
