    Israeli Olympic team says Lebanese judo fighters refuse to train next to them

    Israeli Olympic team says Lebanese judo fighters refuse to train next to them | Sports | Reuters

    LONDON (Reuters) - Olympic officials were forced to erect a screen between Lebanon's and Israel's judo fighters on Friday after the Lebanese refused to train on the same mat, the Israeli Olympic team said on Friday.

    The incident arose after Lebanon's two judokas found themselves next to the five Israelis during practice at the official training venue in Redbridge, in east London, said Nitzan Ferraro, spokesman for the Israeli Olympic Committee.

    "We started to practice. They came and they saw us - they didn't like it and they went to the organizers," Feraro told Reuters. "They put up some kind of wall between us. Everyone went on and there was no interaction between us."

    it was the Lebanese who were stirring the shit.

    the olympic officials should have told the Lebaese to shut up or go home.

    Either you are and you didnt read the line. Israle has no problem with the Lebaneese, the Lebaneese have a problem with Israel, so no it's not Israel's fault.
