Woroud Sawalha knows she won't win a medal at the London Olympics. She isn't likely to get beyond the first round of the 800 meters.
But for the 20-year-old and her three teammates, just competing under the Palestinian flag is a source of pride.
The appearance itself is controversial: the U.N. does not recognize a Palestinian state but athletes have been allowed to compete under a Palestinian flag by the International Olympic Committee and soccer's ruling body FIFA since 1996 and 1998 respectively.Could it be the Olympic organizers are afraid the jihadis will blow them up if they aren't allowed in? Bad enough they won't even honor the 11 Jewish Olympic athletes murdered 40 years ago by Ms. Sawalha's kinsmen in Munich:
...the International Olympic Committee decided again to avoid making a choice that is as politically fraught as it is morally right: [they have refused] To honor the Israeli victims of the terrorist attacks at the Munich Olympics 40 years ago in the opening ceremonies in London...
...After the 1972 terrorist attack, the Olympics were suspended for a day, and a memorial service was held. The Olympic flag was flown at half-staff, but 10 Arab countries objected and the IOC cowed to their demands and raised the flags.
If you don't feel like clicking on the original link, take our word for it that along with the boringly standard CNN bushwah about her earnest commitment to representing blah-blah-blah, the lovely terrorist-track-star-in-training will be competing in "traditional" muslim garb (the better to hide the bomb vest, we presume).
In the spirit of cooperation, we have decided to help design more suitable track-garb for her....
