FIFA has come under further pressure to ensure a solution is reached in the ongoing dispute between Israel and Palestine during its annual Congress here this week.
The FIFA Monitoring Committee, led by South Africa's Tokyo Sexwale, were due to hold a meeting on Tuesday (May 9) morning but that has now been cut from the programme.
World football's governing body had received letters from both sides, with a solution seemingly remaining distant.
More than 170 Palestinian football clubs and sports associations have urged FIFA to suspend the Israel Football Association (IFA) as a result of six teams based in the occupied territories.
They have called on FIFA "to ensure that the IFA exclude Israeli teams based in illegal settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory from its leagues, and suspend the IFA from FIFA if it refuses to do so".
Palestine claim the fact that the six Israeli teams, playing in the settlements of Kiryat Arba, Givat Ze’ev, Ma’aleh Adumim, Ariel, Oranit and Tomer, are in territory which they eventually believe will be within the borders of a future Palestinian state goes against FIFA statutes.
A conflicting letter has also emerged, however, with a group of German Parliamentary deputies accusing Palestinian Football Association (PFA) President Jibril Rajoub of "misusing the sport for his own personal ideology".
The document, addressed to FIFA President Gianni Infantino, was signed by the Green Party’s Volker Beck, Gitta Connemann from the Christian Democratic Union, Michaele Englemeier and Kerstin Griese from the Social Democrats and Jan Korte from the Left Party, according to the Jerusalem Post.
"It is important that FIFA recognise that the entire Palestinian-Israeli question should be examined as a political whole whose solution cannot be a function of sport," the letter said.
"The glorification of terrorism by the use of racism, antisemitism and discrimination of Israel's teams undermines the sustainability of the FIFA statutes that call for a fair and peaceful sport."
It has been claimed that three possible options are being discussed in order to address the situation.
Sexwale, who stood against Infantino for the position of FIFA President last year before dramatically withdrawing in his speech to Congress, is thought to be considering proposing that the organisation give the IFA six months to suspend the teams involved.
Maintaining the status quo and continuing the negotiations between the feuding parties are also under consideration.
It is thought the IFA are resigned to the fact that they may be forced to suspend the clubs.
Sexwale and FIFA have been criticised for their work so far, with some claiming they have not done enough to address concerns.
Fears have been raised by human rights groups that they are acting too slowly.
Sexwale's mandate is due to come to an end at the Congress, set to take place at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Conference Centre on Thursday (May 11).
The two countries remain embroiled in an ongoing conflict, with tensions extending to their respective Football Associations.
Rajoub agreed to drop a proposal to have the IFA suspended from world football's governing body before the 2015 FIFA Congress.
At the meeting, an Israel-Palestine Monitoring Committee was established and its mandate was extended at the 2016 Congress in Mexico City.
