What's funny is that israel is included in the European group
Now even the Balinese don't want them, even though I'm not sure what problem a Hindu would have with Jewish people:
Bali Governor I Wayan Koster forbids the Israeli national football team to come to Bali to compete in the U-20 World Cup 2023.en.tempo.co
Indonesia should expel Israel from the competition. Then FIFA would expel Indonesia from its membership to make the embarrassment complete.
If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
And of course nobody could have known that these kind of things would happen.If this goes as it looks like it will, it basically means that no tournament in which Israel might be a possible participant will be held in Indonesia again. Asia games, SEA games etc. are fine. Olympics, World Cup, any world competition in which there are Israeli participants - no.
The only people interested in furthering Indonesia's efforts to host major tournaments are politicians like Jokowi and a few others. Whereas the people interested in showing the people how anti-Israel they are include basically every politician running for office, and the louder they shout about it the more votes they will get. For organisations like FPI, NU etc. it gives them something to get people out on the streets again. So being loudly anti-Israel and hampering the tournament is basically in almost everyone's interest.
Indonesia hosting the Olympics is pretty much null and void as an idea anyway
