Must be something in the water - not!
While President Barack Obama (D) and his peace acolyte, George Mitchell, babble about Israelis making peace with Arab and Muslim countries, JTA reported on a decidedly unpeaceful and unsportsmanlike act by an Iranian swimmer.
An Iranian swimmer reportedly refused to race against an Israeli competitor at the World Championships in Rome. Mohammad Alirezaei would not compete Tuesday in his heat of the men's 50-meter breaststroke since it would mean getting in the pool with Israeli swimmer Mickey Malul, Ynet reported.
In the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Alirezaei withdrew from the men's 100-meter breaststroke event rather than compete against Israeli swimmer Tom Beeri.
Muslim hatred of Jews as dhimmis (poisonous sub humans) is so pervasive that in some Muslim countries they're not allowed in the same pool as Jews for fear the latter will contaminate the water.
Ah yes, Islam as a religion of peace. And tolerance.
