NBC FINA World Cup Swimming Broadcast Censors Out Israeli Flag to Appease Muslims, Flag Also Pulled @ Facility
The FINA World Cup swimming competition video feed censored out the Israeli flag to appease the host country of the games, Qatar. The Israeli flag was also pulled from outside the swimming facility. Don’t blame the Muslim Nazis in Qatar. Blame the FINA co-conspirators who obeyed the demands of Qatar. FINA is the international governing body of swimming, diving, water polo, synchronized swimming and open water swimming. And if today’s FINA officials had been around in 1930s and ’40s Europe, they’d have fit in perfectly. Sieg Heil! So would the Jew-hating aholes at NBC Universal who did the, um, videography and “wipe the Israeli flag off the screen” graphics. Watch the video:
And note that NBC Universal and FINA did this AFTER they ran the Israeli flag on the first day of competition and the Qataris objected. Watch the video from that:
DOHA, Qatar, October 22. AS seen in the picture above, the Israeli flag did not show up as part of the broadcast feed coming out of the FINA World Cup in Doha, Qatar when Israeli Amit Ivry stepped up to contest the women’s 100-meter IM. Middle Eastern countries have had a long history of snubbing Israeli athletes whenever and wherever possible, with many athletes from Middle Eastern countries electing to disqualify themselves from competition against any Israeli athlete. In swimming, Israeli swimmers have been subjected to being announced as nationless athletes, sometimes just referring to them as hailing from ISR.
Top Israeli swimmer Gal Nevo posted on Facebook his experiences in Dubai and Doha.
“The name Israel was not mentioned, throughout the competition we were presented as ISR swimmers, and the editors of the television broadcast were instructed to do everything in their power to remove us and our flag from the frame.”
Nevo also explained that Ivry did earn some recognition when she took silver in the 100 IM with her being mentioned as from Israel.
Swimming World’s Israeli correspondent Dr. Buky Chass reports that while the Dubai stop would not announce or acknowledge any Israeli swimming, that the word “Israel” was mentioned during the second meet in Doha.
Wow, thank Heavens for small favors.
Swimmming World has requested comment from FINA regarding the missing flag during the 100 IM video, and has not received a response in the past day.
There is even reports from the area as well that the Israeli flag was pulled from outside the facility.
Like I said, pan-Arabist dhimmis.
There are many people that disguise their negative feelings toward Jews, disguise it as anti-Israel criticism, political criticism, when in fact what they really mean is that they don’t like Jews.
The frauds in Qatar may want to pretend that Israel doesn’t exist, but sadly for them, it does and is doing more economically, technologically, scientifically, and medically than Qatar and all of its fellow Muslim hellhole countries combined.
Go suck on a falafel (or a camel), Qatar.
Kudos to former IDF soldier Aaron Maccabee for noticing this travesty and bringing it to the attention of Swimming World, which had the guts to report on it. Thanks to ever sharp reader and Twitter friend Rodrigo Veleda for the tip. (Follow me on Twitter.)
Unfortunately, though, Swimming World let NBC Universal off the hook on this. NBC does the broadcasts, videography, and graphics.
That Was Then . . .
This Is Now . . .
