More Olympic Spirit - Lebanese Team Demands Barrier Separation From Israelis
The Lebanese Olympic judo team demanded and got the Olympic committee to erect a barrier between themselves and the Israeli judo squad just hours before the Games’ opening ceremony.
The two teams were scheduled to train inside London’s ExCeL center but Lebanon’s team refused and their team’s coach demanded an apartheid wall to separate them from the Jews.
Of course the IOC complied with this racism rather than give Lebanon an ultimatum to abide by the Olympic Charter, curb their behavior or pack for the trip home.
I guarantee you that's exactly what would have happened if the Israelis had made that kind of demand.
What an absolute disgrace.
