Lebanese Olympic Team Demands Barrier Separation From Israel Squad (http://www.algemeiner.com/2012/07/27/lebanese-olympic-team-demands-barrier-separation-from-israel-squad/)

The Lebanese judo team forced International Olympic Committee officials to erect a barrier between themselves and the Israeli judo squad, Friday afternoon in London, just hours before the Games’ opening ceremony, reports Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot.

Both teams were scheduled to train inside London’s ExCeL center but Lebanon’s team did not want to be seen by the Israeli one, and IOC officials heeded to the Lebanese’s demand after the team’s coach demanded separation.

This is not the first time Middle Eastern judo teams have caused a political stir. In February, Egypt’s Ramadan Dawris defeated Arik Zeevi of Israel, but afterwards, Dawris refused to shake the hand of his competitor.

The opening ceremony will air on NBC at 7:30 pm ET.



Given that the IOC caved to the Lebanese, I suppose that we should be grateful that they didn't demand a moment of silence for the Palestinian Terrorists who died at Munich. One has to wonder if they would have given in to a similar demand from a white South African who objected to training next to blacks. Muslim racism and antisemitism is accommodated by good little liberals who then pat themselves on the back for the open-mindedness, while Jews are once again subjected to hateful conduct, rhetoric and, eventually, violence. And, what's the Obama administration's take on this? Why, it's the same as their position on the capital of Israel, which is that their position hasn't changed, but they won't say what it is.

My Lord. Just once, I'd like to see someone say "You know what? You don't run things. We're not going to do what you're asking, not because we can't but because we WON'T. If YOU can't behave civilly then have a nice trip home." And then just walk away.

I'd prefer to see the Lebanese sent packing for unsportsmanlike conduct. Giving in to their demand implies that the IOC finds it reasonable, while telling them to go pound sand, or penalizing them for making the demand would send a message that their behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

You are exactly right. Every time we cave in to their demands, their next demands (not requests) become more extreme. It's the same as the black panthers getting away with voter intimidation without even a reprimand from our beloved Attorney General Holder or President.

Objections should be raised with the Olympic committee over this. That barrier should go down. The Lebanese deserve no special favors.

waaaaaahhhhhhhh. This isn't about religion. It's about hate. And there's no place for it in the Olympics. Send them the F home.

Also, there's a Muslim woman competing in Judo and she is being told to remove the hijab or face disqualification. Stay tuned.

They did it because the IOC is anti-Semitic anyway.
