While the Western media play up the shooting of a car thief in Chicago there is scarcely any news about the Israeli Olympic team not being permitted to ride the same bus as those from the Lebanese Olympic delegation.
“The Lebanese Olympic delegation refused to allow Israeli athletes to board their shared bus to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games opening ceremony on Friday night, forcing the Israeli delegation to take a different bus to the Maracana Stadium.
The Lebanese and Israeli delegations were apparently assigned to the same bus. After the Lebanese athletes boarded and discovered they were expected to share with Israelis, they blocked the entrance, asking the bus driver to close the door in the face of their rivals.
Udi Gal, the Israeli sailing team trainer, argued with the organizers, who attempted to split up the Israeli delegation and send them on different buses to defuse the situation. Gal insisted that the Israeli athletes be allowed to board as planned.
However, when the bus driver opened the door, the head of the Lebanese delegation, Salim al-Haj Nakoula, blocked it with his body, physically preventing the Israelis from alighting.”
“Nakoula was quickly lauded as a hero by officials and on social media in Lebanon, with Lebanese Minister of Youth and Sport Abdel Motaleb Hannawi calling his stance against the Israelis ‘principled and patriotic.’” http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/73448/lebanese-olympic-athletes-block-israeli-delegation-boarding-shared-bus/?utm_source=Breaking+Israel+News&utm_campaign=1cd7a0a659-BIN_evening_8_16&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b6d3627f72-1cd7a0a659-86688409#2masBlkQrTFSj7GQ.97
Can you imagine the outcry and anger if it was the Israeli’s that stopped the Lebaneses delegation from boarding the bus?!! That would have been boldly printed in every liberal news outlet as racist or islamphobic! But when the Israelis are treated this way it is as though the liberal media is saying, “they’re only Jews” without saying anything!
