Let The [Hate] Games Begin!
“Sports are a bridge for love, communication and the spreading of peace between nations and should not be used for divisiveness and the spread of racism.” Hallelujah, I’m signing off on that.
Rajoub redefines the already abused and battered word “Racism”: We’re used to hearing that any criticism of Islam (not a race, incidentally) is racism. And now, make a note: Commemorating the victims of Islamic terrorism is also racism. According to Rajoub the action (killing 11 Israeli athletes during the olympic games) is not important, let alone the victims and their memory. The response (i.e. demanding a minute of silence) is the problem.
And there you have it: The essence of the invented problem of Islamophobia: clarified. Thank you, Jibril.
I wonder what Jacques Count Rogge, head of the International Olympic Committee, thinks about this utter distortion of the Olympic spirit coming from the irresponsible mouth of a national Olympic Committee head. Perhaps he’s not too shocked: in 1996 OIC officials gave the odd reasoning for not commemorating the victims because had they done so, they’d have to commemorate the Palestinians who died during the Olympics. Let’s stop here for a second to review: The victims will not be commemorated, because than we’ll have to commemorate their killers as well.
And there you have it: The essence of the holy principal of symmetry: explained. Your local paper exposes you to it every time there’s violence in the Middle East; Here’s an encore. Thank you OIC.
Meanwhile the Olympic version of the relentless, hysterical Muslim hatred towards Israel goes on:
Not really Olympic spirit? Well - it gets better: A Tunisian swimmer is reported to have purposely disqualified himself yesterday mid race, because an Israeli swimmer was - alas - competing. This Tunisian broken Olympic dream is just one in a chain of Muslim Olympic suicides that plague the games every 4 years. As we all get inspired by the human spirit, focused determination and will power of the Olympians, we should consider the stark contrast displayed in self-sabotages of that sort, and the magnitude of hate that must be behind such irrational actions. Michael Phelps wouldn’t have done that. Neither would the Tuvaluan weight-lifter, or the Dominican volleyball team.
2. The organization that carried out the terrorist attack in Munich was called Black September, after the September 1970 war between the Jordanian government and Palestinian militias in Jordan. The Jordanian 1972 athletes were fine though - the Israelis not so much.
