If it had been the other way around they would be demanding action by the UN.

In another rumbling controversy, Iran escaped sanction for the failure of its team flag-bearer, judo world champion Arash Miresmaeili, to fight Ehud Vaks last Sunday because of Tehran's political boycott of Israel.

A source in the sport's governing body said the International Judo Federation (IJF) had now accepted that Miresmaeili had a genuine medical reason for showing up too heavy to fight.



Contrast that with this:

Though Mr. Miresmaeili told the Iranian news agency last week that he was withdrawing from competition on principle -- "I refused to face my rival in sympathy with the oppressed Palestinian people" -- Reuters reported yesterday a spokesman for the Iranian Olympic Committee saying flatly that non-competition against Israelis is national policy, as it has been since the 1979 Islamic revolution, and that it wasn't the judoka's choice to withdraw.


Yeah, right. He was "overweight".

Is anybody really surprised here? We are talking about the IRANIANS - remember, those quirky middle easteners who stormed our embassy in 79 (and these were students), held 100's of our people hostage for a year. Been the biggest catalyst for islamic terror since, ever.

The same jerks talking trash today (Iranian General) about launching a pre-emptive strike against our guys in Iraq & Afghanistan, at the same time threatening retaliation against the Israelis if they take out Iran's Nuclear, um, powerplant - yeah right.

The Israeli's took out Saddam's Nuclear reactor in the 70's, and there is no remorse. Countries like Iraq, and Iran have demonstrated they HAVE NOT EARNED THE RIGHT TO POSSES NUKES, PERIOD.

These people are terrorists liars, gypsies and thieves, anyone surprised at the antics of the Textbook Islamic Fundamentalist Country, IRAN ?

I for one am not...

Sidenote, i still laugh at the video of the Grand Ayotollah Khomeni getting yanked out of his coffin and thrown on the floor during his funeral procession (riot). These freaking people can't even respect their beloved fallen leader enough to keep his corpse in it's casket.

As far as the Iranian Judo Olympic guy, I think he was just a Pussy, and knew the Mossad Israeli Olympian dude wouldve probably whipped his ass.

Awards for gold medal in Iran: 1 goat
Award for Silver Medal in Iran: Hanging in town square
Awards for bronze medal in Iran: Stoning in town square
Awards for no medal in Iran: Hanging, followed by decapitation, than stoning in town square, followed by beeing thrown into wood chipper?
