Well, perhaps that's because the Olympic buildings were not built with the aim of entrenching a belligerent occupation. And perhaps that's because we like to think that Israelis have a greater scope to protest than those in China, including protesting architectural projects by refusing to be involved with their design and implementation. Had the Olympice site been in occupied Tibet, I'm sure their would not have been a single review of the Games or the buildings without reference to human rights and occupation. The fact is that the buildings of Ariel were built to entrench the occupation of the West Bank/Judea & Samaria, where the Olympic site in Beijing was built to show the capital city in its best light.
