Does anyone remember the 1972 Munich Olympics? Sports & politics do not mix ever. As an American Jew who lived in Israel for many years I abhor the violence on both sides. Everyone must look at both sides of the picture. Peace can only begin with the children, but as I see it children are learning hatred at a very young age and so violence will continue ad infinitum. I hear so much hatred spewing from both sides that it sickens me. We live in a global community and all need to pull together for the good of all. But this game must take place. To pull out punishes noone but the players and the fans and stokes the evergrowing animosity both sides feel. Good sportsmanship is an important value for all countries to engage in.
