Will Jews Be Allowed @ Dubai Run Ports?: Andre Agassi, the Dubai Open & Tennis vs. the Jews

By Debbie Schlussel
Why can Andre Agassi play in this week’s Dubai Open, but I can’t? It has nothing to do with the fact that I’m an amateur. It’s that I’m a Jew, and he isn’t. (Plus, he’s of Iranian extraction, perhaps a bonus in the Islamic caliphate.)
It’s bad enough that Dubai and DP World won’t do business with Israel (in violation of U.S. law), but worse is the allegation that Jews and Israelis are not allowed to play in the Dubai open.
Here’s what reader, Robert Spiegel, says:

Last week Dubai hosted a women’s tennis tournament, in which most of the top players participated. This week, Dubai is hosting a men’s tournament, and many of the top male players are participating. There are also professional golf tournaments in Dubai. I know many of the top players receive hefty appearance fees.
I also know that there are several good Israeli players and good Jewish players from the USA and elsewhere, but they do not play Dubai. I assume that this is because, for the Israelis at least, they are not allowed an entry visa into the UAE.

Is Spiegel’s assumption correct? It looks like it. Can’t find any Israeli names on the list of Dubai Open players, current or past. If anyone knows differently, please let me know. If this is true, then I wonder which ports I’ll still be allowed to enter, once DP World’s deal gets pushed through. Just asking, so that I can prepare the yellow star accessory for my coat. I think my Holocaust survivor grandmother might still have hers from Nazi Europe.

Sania Mirza: Pro Tennis Player Won’t Play w/The Jews

In other “Tennis vs. the Jews” news, Peter Bodo’s Tennis World Blog alerts us to this disturbing story in Israel’s Yediot Achronot. Indian tennis player Sania Mirza–not afraid to wear Islamo-prohibited mini-skirts and preach safe sex (also Islamo-objectionable)–is very afraid to play tennis with a Jew:

Indian female tennis player Sania Mirza, 19, who is ranked 39th in the world, announced that she would not play with Israeli up and coming tennis star Shahar Pe’er in the doubles tournament of the Bangalore Open for fear of violent protests by India’s Islamic community.
The two friends were prevented from cooperating in last month’s Australian Open for the same reason.
Mirza initially agreed to play with Pe’er in Bangalore, but later retracted, telling Pe’er “It’s best that we don’t play together this
time to prevent protests against my cooperation with an Israeli. There is no reason to arouse their ire (Muslims).”

Mirza’s agent denies the story. Uh-huh.

Dubai also hosts a bowling tournament which has one of the richest prize funds in the world. I don’t know if Mark Roth has ever competed or tried to compete in the tournament.

The moslems in india are as pro al qaeda as the rest of em globally. Look at india, the genocide against hindus in kashmir goes unreported,every damn day a mooslimb blows up some damn thing or the other, and they make dumb ass claims …
Sure mordern day india is moving ahead but then nuts like these are a dime a dozen and function on keepin india backward.
As for Sania M., if she really wanted to pair up with a jewish tennis player she would, but then i wonder if it would work vise versa cuz she aint that great a player, a pretty face, and a marketing tool.. thats all she is!
As for the visa bit, i have heard that if u have an israeli seal on ur passport, ie you’ve been to israel they wont let u in even if urs aint a israeli passport…think bout it …

Keep posting nonsense. There is no restriction for Jews to enter UAE. There is restriction on Israelis to enter UAE, regardless if he/she is Israeli Jew or Israeli Arab.
WRONG! ISRAELI ARABS ARE ROUTINELY ALLOWED INTO ARAB COUNTRIES ON ISRAELI PASSPORTS, SUCH AS HANY ABU-ASSAD, DIRECTOR OF “PARADISE NOW,” WHO HOLDS AN ISRAELI PASSPORT. ISRAELI ARAB MUSLIMS ARE ROUTINELY ALLOWED INTO SAUDI ARABIA FOR THE HAJJ. ETC., ETC., ETC., AD NAUSEAM. THIS IS AIMED AT ONE GROUP: J-E-W-S. WITH A NAME LIKE AMIR, IT’S QUITE APPARENT WHY YOU REFUSE TO FACE FACTS.

How naive and apologetic some writers appear.!
Arabs, moslems, Easterners have always decried racism while practicing it.!
They thrive in hypocrisy. I am tired of being
censored with the term politically correct, I believe in absolute freedom of speech regardless to others taking offense with my opinions.
Dubai relies on it’s oil sales to the West to finance it’s other ventures, if they and other arab/moslem countries don’t like Israelis, Jews or whoever, whatever, then they are out of touch with reality. Jews own and control a massive amount of wealth and power throughout the World, that’s not going to change.! Jews are a well educated, integral part of finance, law, business and politics throughout the West and even in Russia.
If the arab/moslems want to exclude them, maybe the rest of the World should exclude them too and they can eat their oil.!
Finally,I note that most wealthy arab oil moguls and business political leaders,etc. visit the mayo clinic in Rochester, Minnesota regularly for their anual medical checkups,(they obviously don’t trust their own Doctors or clinics) Well wouldn’t you know, that was started and is still run by…..you guessed it…..mostly Jewish Doctors. (lol)
Israel and the Jewish peole aren’t going away either. Where we were historically vulnerable because our adversaries calculated our reluctance
to defend ourselves and to retaliate against those who hate and seek to destroy, we are now very strong and united in this sense and gratefully have enough advanced weaponry and highly trained Jewish military resources and unquestionable resolve,to effectively respond to any and every adversary.!
I am not an Israeli. but having visited their as a journalist and been shown their military strength and high tech nuclear and other weaponry which thanks to Jewish Scientists and military experts throughoontinue to the World now surpasses any Nation on the Planet, I am confident that those who continue to unleash violence towards the Jewish people, just because they are Jews, do so at their own folly.! We are a tolerant and peaceful race at heart, but never again will we become a mass victim, of this I am certain.!

The jews made their bed in the Arab and Muslim world when they decided to ethnically cleanse Palestine with rape and murder and are still allowed by the USA to terrorize the entire Middle East with their Apartheid/racist regime and occupation of what little remains of a once free and pound Palestine.

The double standard of the USA and their jew politicians that allow Israel to have nuclear weapons and GIVE them over $7 BILLION EVERY year in cash and weapons but attacks Arab countries for WMD that don’t even exist is why people are fighting back.

Since I don’t condone killing innocent people like Al Qaeda and the USA and Israel does, I have boycotted ALL USA, Israeli and jew companies and products since the USA went into Iraq. When the USA goes the way of the USSR and Israel the way of South Africa, there will be a lot more peace in the world.

    Innocent people like Al Qaeda? What desert beetle did you crawl out of you pathetic person? You don’t know shit from a monkey if it splats on your face. Palestine is an Arab Muslim country? Yes dream on! Jews were there from the beginning and will always be there no matter what your terrorist child killers do to them. The IDF single-handedly shoved the rockets up the arses of Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Hezbolla, Hamas, PLO, and every other Arab Muslims who tried to attack Israel and will continue to do so. You are the ones that will disappear like a fart in the wind. Hopefully wandering Allahs paradise(hell fire)looking for your virgins who dont exist instead you will find 72 devils with pitchforks to shove up your arse.

This blog is run by yet another jew (or crypto-jew) with an axe to grind against Muslims for being one of the few people to recognize the jew for what they are, Racists and Liars and Bernie Madoff is their king.

The Palestinians are paying the price for allowing the jews to live in THEIR land while Germany and most other civilized countries were expelling them. After what the jew did to Palestine, is there any wonder no other Arab or Muslim country wants the jew in their country?

The only good thing about Israel is that is sucks BILLIONS out of wealthy jews and their Apartheid/racist supporters EVERY year and thus prevents them from buying up more land in other decent countries and buying more politicians as well. When the USA finally goes bankrupt, Israel will disappear like a fart in the wind.
