    Yes, a wonderful teacher indeed. We will sit on the sidelines envious of Egypt's latest berth to the FIFA World Cup . . . . oh wait, Egypt isn't going to the world cup, they got slammed by Algeria of all teams, and are sitting on the sidelines crying in their coffee while their countrymen trash the capital in rage at the loss. . . or was it rioting in Algeria and trashing their country. No matter. The fact remains that Israel has held its own in a more challenging prelim tournament, coming within a point or two of the World Cup tournament. Dare the Arab world put Israel in its regional bracket, and I have a strong feeling that we would see the Israeli national team on the world stage far more often than we have to date. That's of course if the Arab teams were man enough to take the field. Given what we've seen of the previous Iranian competitors, "Honor" is found in running from Israeli sports competitors.
