Iranian team Sepahan refused to play Partizan because of Grant!

Racist!!!!

Iranian soccer team cancels game over opponent's Israeli coach
Avram Grant, a former Chelsea and West Ham coach who took over at Partizan Belgrade last month, says Iranian club Sepahan's only issue was his nationality.
By The Associated Press Tags: Iran

Partizan Belgrade coach Avram Grant says the Iranian club Sepahan has canceled their exhibition in Turkey because he is an Israeli.

The match was scheduled to be played Friday in Antalya, where the defending Serbian champions are preparing for the rest of the domestic season.

Grant, a former Chelsea and West Ham coach who took over at Partizan last month, says the decision by the Iranian club is "shameful."

He says "I never mixed politics with sports. I had worked with many [Muslims] while I was in England, and I made friends with many of them."

Partizan says it had to switch its usual winter preparations from Dubai to Antalya because of Grant's Israeli citizenship.

Losers!

And then they criticize Israel for racist attitudes

They already caancelled their trip to Dubai because they wouldn`t let him enter the country and now this sh*t. Of course, FIFA and doesn`t make a fuss about it.

Oh and a Arik Zeevi our olimpic medalist at judo was in a competition this weekend an egyptian competitor refused to shake his hand.

Anti semitism is there, but no one likes to admit it and the western countries are afraid of the repercussion if they defend Israel or Jews because of their muslim populations that of course would make strikes and violent protests.

There many cases of this anti semitism and anti sportism by muslim athletes.

Just came across my mind now when Shachar Peer was to compete in Dubai tennis competition and they gave a veto on her arrival that they wouldn`t permit her to compete.

The sponsors and the WTA said that if that happened they would cut the city out of the tennis competitions and that the sponsors would cut the money. They ended up giving Peer a "special visa".

Also, in a recent tournament an Egyptian opponent refused to shake arik zeevi's hand. Israel may have made peace w/the government, but the people never made peace with us.

True. Remember what happened to the people that wanted to make peace with Israel. Sadat and Gemayel were murdered by their own.
