Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo has donated $1.5 million to the Palestinians in a move to alleviate the suffering of people in the besieged Gaza Strip durinh the holy mont of Ramadan.

Cristiano generously donated the fund to the Palestinians during the holy month of Ramadan. The soccer star has, on several occasions, vehemently condemned Israel’s atrocities against the Palestinians.

Cristiano Ronaldo had impressed his fans worldwide when in 2012, he auctioned his Golden Boot, the prestigious “best European strikers of the season” award to raise $1.5 million that were later donated to the Palestinian children for the construction of more schools.

Also in March 2013, at the end of the match between Portugal and Israel for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, Ronaldo showed solidarity with the Palestinian sufferings when he declined the usual t-shirt swap with an Israeli player.

Such news are rarely covered by the majority of the western media which observers termed as unfortunate and bias.
