Olympiska spelen ska stå för sportsliga värderingar. Men tyvärr är inte verkligheten lika vacker som idealen.
Jonathan Tobin på Commentary skriver: London Olympics Had Time for Some Terror Victims But Not Israelis:
In the weeks and months prior to the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games, the organizers and the International Olympics Committee were adamant in insisting that there was no time during the event for a single moment of silence for the victims of the 1972 Munich massacre. The 40th anniversary of the terrorist violence that disrupted the sports extravaganza went unmarked during the worldwide television show […].
But as it turned out, those who produced the opening ceremonies were not opposed to commemorating the victims of terrorist violence, just to remembering Israeli victims. The official program included a nearly six-minute long choreographed commemoration of the July 7, 2005 London bombings.[…]
While there were those who speculated that prejudice against Jews and Israelis was at the heart of the IOC’s decision prior to Friday, the surprising inclusion of the 7/7 attacks as a major element in the ceremony confirms that this was the case. The only possible conclusion to be drawn from this is that the Olympic movement considers Jewish blood shed by terrorists at an Olympics to be somehow less significant than that of other victims.Erik Lidström på bloggen Under Tallen skriver om ännu ett illdåd som IOK tillåtit. Från Algeminer: 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 the Lebanese demand after the team’s coach demanded separation.Inte nog med att IOK tillåter att terror sopas under mattan, man tolererar också libanesernas brutala israelhat och går dem till mötes med deras krav på att slippa se israeler.
Elder of Ziyon har också skrivit om passiviteten från IOK när iranska atleter vägrar tävla mot israeliska.
Det arabiska israelhatet och judehatet slår igenom också i sporten, och IOK tolererar att detta händer. Skamligt.
