It's unfortunate that this whole episode has snow balled into an avalanche of diplomatic recrimination. Leiberman's over confrontational approach, smearing the Swedish government and people and history with antisemitism, was a crude attempt to correct a problem that was over the top and backfired. Swedish neutrality, whether it goes against Israel too often, is nonetheless a valuable asset as a middleman in much of the Palestinian Israeli conflict, and to attack the umpire is poor sportsmanship, even if his judgement is flawed. It may be pointed out but to disrupt the game works against us too.
