Israel missing on ESPN, but 'Palestine' present

The country of Israel is missing from at least part of ESPN’s website, while Palestine is included throughout, raising the eyebrows of some sports fans, since Israel is an existing country and Palestine is not. The portion where Israel is missing is in the TV-listing section of ESPNAmerica.com. A drop-down menu at the top right of the page has countries listed in alphabetical order. On the list are Hungary, Iceland, Iran and Ireland, immediately followed by Italy, Jordan and Kazakhstan......."

ESPN supports a terrorist organization. Nice. Someone needs to send DHS and the FBI an FYI ASAP.

Just racing to the day when Israel is hated by all nations - it is close to pandemic now - generations are being bred to hate Israel - The Second Coming occurs in verse 5 below:

Zechariah 14:2-5

King James Version (KJV)

2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

Thou shall not be an “Israel”. Only Obama can be an “Israel” because he is politicaly correct and does what he is told to do, the epitomy of comformity following setter, appoligizing because he wants us to appologize.

But they do have room for a video interview of Obama. Espn loves to promote this guy throughout the year. As a side note, the video is titled “the BS Report”...haha.

Thanks for posting. Once again, World Net Daily has picked up a Free Republic original report and claimed it as their own.

Link to FR article and 'message board comment' quoted by WND.

When the Little League World Series games were on, ESPN did not recognize Taiwan as a nation. They were referred to as Chinese Taipei. The International Olympic Committee also does this.

You want to see whats really happening? Take a look at this video from Dec 2011.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9bn-k2UtBg&feature=player_embedded#!

Not one of the broadcasters dared to “say” what the gunman was yelling. At 2:42 a witness states that the Muslim idiot murderer at Sunset and Vine was shouting “Alahu Akbar” as he walked along the street shooting at cars, wouunding and killing one driver, before being dispatched by the LA Police. The self censorship of our media is so sick on reporting the truth of identity and any issue of “Islam” and “Muslims”,so much so that it is treasonous to our nation, its culture of freedom and the people.

We no longer have a free press in this country.

Good, because it appears to be incorrect:
