ADL 'Greatly Disappointed' By UAE Barring Israeli Tennis Star
Amazing how these merciless killers foget so soon all the devastation and slaughter they performed upon Arabs. Here is Abe Foxman doing what he does best, which is to tell the world how the Jews are the victims.
"In recent years, we began to see an effort by the UAE to overcome years of a policy of isolation of Israel and Jews" Abd Foxman
New York, NY, February 16, 2009 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said it was "greatly disappointed" by the United Arab Emirates refusal of a visa to Israeli tennis player Shahar Peer to participate in this week's Dubai Tennis Championship.
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:
In recent years, we began to see an effort by the UAE to overcome years of a policy of isolation of Israel and Jews with a more open policy in commerce, industry, education and tourism. Therefore, we are greatly disappointed and find the UAE decision to refuse entry to Israeli tennis star Shahar Peer to compete in Dubai a troubling step backward.
This decision violates the guidelines of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), which sponsors the tournament. International sporting events should not be politicized. We hope that Dubai and the WTA will be able to quickly find a satisfactory solution to the problem.
However, if they are not able to do so, and Israelis continue to be barred, we believe the WTA should consider an appropriate response to this violation of its rules, including removing the Dubai Tennis Championship from its 2010 tour.
This unfortunate decision could be especially problematic for the numerous American businesses, academic institutions, movie studios and others who were invited to establish or are considering partnerships and programs in the UAE on the understanding that they could operate as they do in their home countries.
When an ADL delegation visited Dubai in 2007, we were encouraged by assurances from the leadership that they would continue to pursue a policy of bringing businesses and academic institutions from Europe and the U.S. to Dubai. This latest action is clearly counter to those assurances.
We are hopeful Dubai will quickly return to the meaningful and productive path of openness it had been pursuing.
