They should have sent them packing. The Olumpics especially is supposed to be apolitical. (Yeah, right.)

Kinda like preparing a seating chart at a wedding, to ensure riots don't break out.

Yup.

And wasn't it just last year that some country refused to share a bus with the Israeli athletes at the Olympics, so there was an extra bus that had to be ordered??

Really, it's ridiculous. The point of these international competitions is to promote friendship amongst all nations, centered around the common interest in a sport or game or whatever. And then for any nation to say "oh we won't play against X" is contrary to the original intentions! I mean, did Athens refuse to compete against Sparta in the original Olympics?????

Sad that they had to create "alternative" games due to those countries who refused to play with Israelis.

Is there anything more innocent than a child?
