WATCH: Egyptian Judo athlete refuses to shake hand of Israeli who defeated him at Olympics

StaffRebel Columnist

Now this is just some bad sportsmanship.

Egyptian judoka Islam El Shehaby refused to shake the hand of Ori Sasson of Israel after a stunning defeat in the first round of the men’s 100+ kilogram weight class.

When the bout ended, Sasson went to shake his opponent's hand, but got snubbed by Egyptian.

So much for the Olympics being about tolerance and putting politics on the background.

That’s where they are at! Their prophet didn’t teach them basic manner or courtesy. I guess these things aren’t really important compared to chopping off heads and ruling the world.

Watch "Obsession. ..Radical Islam’s War Against the West " and "The Cult of The Suicide Bomber "

A flippin Muslim no doubt, full of love and peace.

So where is Jay with his cries for tolerance and kindness? Oh yeah , he only means it in one way.

Mongrel you got it right, they are cowards. Why get into martial arts if you do not respect what it stands for?

I had better not write what I’d like to write about that big ugly Egyptian goof with the goatfucker/childmolester beard…being as I was ‘Warned’ recently for something similar.

The overseeing organisation of this sport could ban the Egyptian for life but won’t. Unfortunately, the IOC can not sanction the Egyptian without the Judo association blowing its stack.

Even if it could, it wouldn’t – the IOC knows which side the bead is buttered. It spends next to nothing to put on the games and takes in billions off the top. The last thing it wants to do is rock the boat.

By what stretch of the imagination would one put the next Olympic Games in Dubai where the summer daytime temperature is around 140F. Just great for track and field, cycling, volley ball, et cetera. Athletes dropping dead from heat stroke. How many workers are dying so far during facility construction? Why put the games there? Money.

There is a far larger lack of honour within all islamic states than most realize – this is such a tiny, tiny tip of the iceberg.

And they tell us its just the radicals who are the problem, the rest are peaceful. Now you know.

Well they will always lose to Israel even in real fight!

this is now the 4th or 5th time an arab competitor has done this in the 2016 olympics and im glad the world is watching….this is despicable..every country whose delegates behave like this should be sent home and a 10 yr ban imposed on future olympic games….the IOCC needs to grow a set and instead of a wrist slap set a proper precedent to say this will NO longer be tolerated…so far its been Lebanon, Syria, Saudia Arabia, Tunisia and now Egypt…the Lebanese blocked the Israeli’s from getting on the bus to go to the opening ceremonies….once every 4 years, the olympics occur where people come together for sport and put aside political issues and war, or are supposed to…i cant believe in 2016 this garbage is allowed at all……if this had been a white person refusing to shake a black persons hand, it would be global headline news for a week but because its Israeli jews the world has become quite accepting of such behaviour as anti semitism seems to be fashionable once again….or worse still, imagine someone refusing to shake a muslims hand, the world would be on fire, like what happened over that stupid video or the prophet cartoon……….it MUST stop!!! any moral person can see how disgusting these behaviours are….enough is enough….the entire olympic spirit is about sport and competition which apparently the arab world didnt get that memo…

Geez, wherever did they find a scowling, hateful bastard in Egypt? Imagine that?

Plus , the Egyptian Muslim brother hood fighter was worried about amputation of said hand back home

Great takedown

They should send all the immature babies back to where they came from. They shouldn’t even be allowed to compete, if they can’t set their hatred aside. I’m so glad the Israeli athlete won! God bless Israel and protect them from these hateful bullies.

The Egyptian muslim is probably going to protest his defeat. After all the rules were not fair. He was expected to fight one on one with both opponents unarmed and the opponent knew the fight was going to take place so prepared for it. Muslims only think it is a fair fight if they are armed and go into a surprise attack on unarmed children, women, elderly, etc. How thoughtless of the IOC to be so culturally insensitive to the muslim athletes by expecting them to fight on the level.

Olympic Score Board

Jews 1 Muslims 0

Can you imagine the whining of the western regressive elites if one of the western athletes refused to shake hands with a muslim? The MSM would be ballistic!

" So much for the Olympics being about tolerance and putting politics on the background."

Sadly , the Olympics being about tolerance was finished when Yasser Arafat masterminded the Munich Massacre in ’72. The only Olympics where this sh*t is at a minimum are the Winter Olympics.

The Israeli is lucky the Egyptian did not have a knife!

No one will say anything because it is a Muslim snubbing a Jew. If it was a Jew snubbing a Muslim it would be front page news for a month.
