New York Times Sports Dude Bummed that Israel Beat Sweden in Davis Cup

By Debbie Schlussel
Previously, I wrote about how the cowardly Swedes couldn’t–and wouldn’t–provide adequate security for the Israeli Davis Cup Tennis Team, now that Sweden is Islamo-Swede-Barbaria. (Lookin’ forward to the IKEA mosque.) So, as I noted, the Swedes as brought to you by Mohammed, had Israel play its Davis Cup matches without an audience.
Well, Israel won. And the New HAMAS York Times is upset that Israel won and finds the need to denigrate the victory a little. You know, just for the Jewish Purim holiday:
NYTimes Sports “reporter” Christopher Clarey writes this baloney:

Perhaps with crowd support, Sweden might have found the strength to win.


F-U Sweden: Victorious Israeli Tennis Team After Winning Davis Cup

Perhaps, if there was a crowd and a Muslim would-be assassin of Israeli tennis players sneezed in the crowd and his boogers ended up on some wimpy Swedish policeman’s pepperoni pizza distracting a Swedish player who–in anticipation of his Muslim future–wondered if that makes the Pepperoni halal and suddenly felt emboldened by Allah, Sweden would have found the strength to win. Perhaps.
Perhaps if Yasser Arafat’s, Edward Said’s, and George Habash’s ghosts arose in the Malmo arena for the occasion of an interfaith Arab terrorist orgy and simultaneously put a fatwa on the Israeli tennis team, their rackets would have turned into IEDs and they’d have blown up. Perhaps.
It’s ridiculous. Israel won. Why does this creepy NY(HAMAS)Times reporter find it necessary to come up with excuses for why Israel shouldn’t have won and scenarios in which it would have lost? Because he’s mad that Israel won, despite all the anti-Semitic Muslim violence on the streets surrounding the tennis matches. And he just can’t keep this anger bottled up inside and do real, objective sports reporting.
So sad for NYTimes’ Christopher Clarey that Israel will now reach its second Davis Cup Quarterfinal in history. Hey, where’s the Al-Qaeda and HAMAS tennis teams? Oh, yeah, they’re practicing their rocket-lob shots . . . elsewhere.
But wait, there’s more. Clarey uses the usual epithets and euphemisms for violent Muslims who’ve taken over the streets of Malmo, Sweden (and America, soon enough).

It was easier to understand the council’s concern after seeing footage of youths, some masked, abusing police officers and equipment in the aftermath of a protest march Saturday near the arena.

“Youths”? Translation: MUSLIMS. Muslims, some masked, abusing police officers and equipment in the aftermath of an ANTI-SEMITIC protest march Saturday near the arena.

I watched an “Eleventh Hour” episode about VX terrorism perpetrated by European Muslims and guess what went unmentioned? I-S-L-A-M! If the killers were Christians, liberal Hollywood would broadcast their identity all over the place! But we’re not allowed to discuss the Religion Of Peace’s proclivity to perpetrate genocidal violence.

Did you read the article Debbie?
The full quote reads, “It was easier to understand the council’s concern after seeing footage of youths, some masked, abusing police officers and equipment in the aftermath of a protest march Saturday near the arena. But soccer authorities have to deal with these sorts of disruptions on a regular basis and rarely ban ticket sales.
Perhaps with crowd support, Sweden might have found the strength to win. Four of the five matches five sets, including both of the Sunday singles matches. In the end, the Israelis prevailed with Harel Levy winning, 8-6, in the fifth set of the fifth match over Andreas Vinciguerra.”
How can you read that one sentence and see anti-Israel bias? The next sentence says all the matches went the full distance of 5 matches with 5 sets. In other words, it was a long, close match.
I’m a huge fan of Israel and admittedly, I’m very slanted in my middle east views but to draw the conclusions you have made from the quote provided indicates that either you are purposefully only seeing anti-Israel rhetoric or you are incapable of understanding the context within which the comment was made. With your extensive education, I assume it’s the former.
Honestly, do you think this helps or hurts your/our cause? I believe someone who is on the fence regarding the middle east might read your article and be pushed in the wrong direction because it’s obviously a fabricated claim of antisemitism…and unfortunately, I’d have to agree.
(I recommend you check out for examples of legitimate anti-Israel bias in the news.)

“Perhaps with crowd support, Sweden might have found the strength to win.”
And perhaps without a mob of 6000 angry Muslims calling for their death, the Israelis might have not only won, but swept the match.

I guess AR’s comment illustrates why the MSM get away with their baloney. Most of us are not skilled enough as readers to detect subtle nuances in language.
The frame of reference of the quoted passage centers around what Sweden would have had to do to win. Do you really think that if Israel lost there would have been an article in a European paper saying “perhaps with crowd support Israel would have found the strength to win?” Of course not. The frame of reference of sports article, like the ‘news’ articles is always what others have to do to beat Israelo (or defeat israel, or to get land from Israel, or in some way get the better of Israel.” Kind of like an all-purpose instruction manual; how to get the better of israel in sports, or 1,000 other ways.
Sometimes the most subtle anti-Semitic propaganda can be the most effective. We have just seen an example. They get away with it because many of us have lost the ability to read and think carefully and critically.

Maybe Sweden supports the anti-Semitic Muslims because they love the Swedish young girls so much ( ) /sarcasm

That’s what the riot was. Moreover, the riot has been terribly under-reported by the mainstream media.
What little mention I saw in the NYT and CNN both stated that it was (hold on! I better look this up to make sure)… oh man! This is unbelievable. Here’s the verbiage from CNN:
>Dozens of protesters clashed with police outside the Baltic Arena at the weekend as violence erupted on the sidelines of an authorised demonstration of some 10,000 people against Israel’s recent offensive in Gaza.<
Protesters? No! They were not protesters. They went on a riot.
Let’s be frank here! Americans have occupied Iraq for 6 years and I’ve NEVER heard of a local Muslim population rioting against a visiting American sports team. Israel pulled out of Gaza 6 weeks ago. This had nothing to do with Gaza. If there never had been a Gaza military operation, this POGROM would have gone on as planned. Everybody knows it!
Ya know! It’s a good thing the Israelis were professional athletes. Imagine if they were just a group of Israeli tourists roaming around Sweden.
Anti-Semitism has become rampant in Sweden. Nobody need wonder too hard why the tennis organization said nothing; the Swedish tennis team said nothing (IF the lack of a crowd hurt them so bad, you’d expect the Swedish tennis team to admonish the rioters. Wouldn’t you?); the Swedish government said nothing. And above all, in a country that has laws against “hate speech”, the whole reaction from the public is “ho-hum”. (This should be a good lesson for advocates of “hate speech” laws).
The mainstream news media has been all but silent. Even the NYT article Debbie cites gives this POGROM all of a paragraph or two.
Debbie, thank you for publicizing this shameful behavior on the part of Sweden. I think it’s a story that should have received a lot more media attention that it received.

Debbie, it was a real mitzvah for the Israelis to beat Sweden since they pulled that closed match stunt. I am sure the Israelis used proper manners and said F U very much to the match organizers on their way out of town.

I watched video footage of the Malmo hatefest held outside the stadium, prominently featured on yahoo’s home page several days ago. It was appalling to see the police do absolutely nothing while kafiyyaed Muslims smashed the windshields and ripped off windshield wipers from police vehicles, and covered the vehicles with spray paint while the police were inside. This parallels what happened not long ago during a similar hatefest in England (Manchester, I believe, but it might have been London – can’t remember), where the police actually ran from mobs of attacking Muslims. Goodbye, Europe.

What is most unbelievable is that the “Authorities” do TOO LITTLE,TOO LATE, and are actually IN FEAR of these Islamic MANIACS!

What do you expect from the people who gave us Stockholm syndrome.

Take care and God bless.

I was overjoyed with Israel’s win!!!!!!
It was an inside job at Malmo by politicians:
In light of the racism in the Detroit council, growing nanny state 0bama, and entitlement feelings, I found the above article closing interesting. Will the blacks ever be satisfied? Is it any wonder blacks sell out America for bribes in immigration to muslims when they preach the entitlement of the oppressed?
—But Roseng├érd lies in the world’s most generous welfare state. … Social inequality is, therefore, a poor model for explaining not only a rise in crime the neighborhood has seen in the last few years, but also in political radicalization.
—… The neighborhood has also become a symbol for the fact that too many of the country’s Arab immigrants have brought anti-democratic values from their home countries; values that neither “dialogue police” nor the world’s most generous welfare system has been able cure. And it is also becoming a symbol of a Western country that is prepared to compromise with those values.

what did you expect from pro-islamic Sweden, which already has over 1 million muslims?? it’s like that: swedes are too silent, too polite (haaa), too stupid to understand that they are already kissing muslim’s ass… poor country.
