Skip to comments.Arab Athletes Furious After “Palestine” Truncated

Some of the participants in the 2011 Pan Arab Games, taking place in Qatar, were upset this weekend after discovering that a map showing Palestine presented its boundaries as only included Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
The map was presented, along with the maps of other participating countries, at the opening ceremony of the games in Doha. The representation of Palestine made some of the participants furious, as they claimed that the map only showed 22% of the area of Palestine.
The participants said that presenting Palestine in this way constitutes recognition of Israel and an acceptance of what they termed the American scheme of the new Middle East. They also threatened to return to their home countries and not participate in the games.
They also stressed that Qatar had made a bad mistake and that it will be responsible for it and at the same time they demanded that the map be corrected. In addition, they threatened to take to the streets to demand an apology to the Palestinian people.
Not stopping there, the participants also blamed the Palestinian Authority for the incident, claiming that it is a natural outcome of its policy of negotiating with Israel.
The PA, while stating its intentions to negotiate peace with Israel in international media, usually presents a totally different picture within its own media. This includes claiming that the entire land of Israel is in fact Palestine and not restricting themselves to Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
A few months ago, PA representatives in the United Nations were handing out maps of Palestine that show it in place of all of Israel, including Tel Aviv.

There never was a palestine.
A liberal once told me,”We are all God’s children.”I told her,”No,there are a lot of children of the Devil out there.”The biggest concentration of the latter is in these Muslim hell-holes.
An invented people angry at reality.
Yeah, when these guys draw maps, there is NO Israel at all.
Post du jour.
Note to the athletes... Get used to it!

“2011 Pan Arab Games”
The bomb toss.....the suicide bomb school bus (if you live you lose)
The best event, the tossing of acid into womens’ faces....if you get any on a man you lose.
Qatar must have seen Newt’s interview.
Don’t forget the Arab high diving team:
Opening ceremonies of the games include a multiple suicide vest bombing extravaganza with closing ceremonies using the the old muzz standby, say hello to the 72 virgins, head chopping exhibition.
So what did they do with Jordan?
No, there won’t be that much Palestine either. That ship has sailed.
Aw, c’mon. That’s trick photography. Isn’t it?
