    If the crooks in charge of the Maccabiah did not pocket construction money, or let the tenders to buddies who had no idea about building a proper bridge, then no-one would have landed in that sewer called a river. I was on that bridge and ended up in the water. Luckily, I stood at the edge of the line and was among the first to end up in the water. Nobody landed on top of me, so I didn't inhale any of that water. Greg Small was a friend of mine, as is Sasha Elterman, whose life has been ruined by the criminals in charge of the Maccabiah. I will NEVER forgive those responsible, including an individual who was allowed to retain employment by the Maccabi organization after being convicted in a court of law! Nor those, who employed him. Or, those who tried to silence and defame thos raising their voices for the victims. Eyal Tiberger should hang his head in shame at being associated with such a gang. -- PETER SCOTT, Australian Media Officer, Maccabiah Games 1993/1997
