Det israelske tennislandshold skal spille mod det svenske i Davis Cup. Fra The Local

Sweden’s upcoming Davis Cup tennis match against Israel will be held behind closed doors, Malmö city council ruled on Wednesday. The decision follows a vocal campaign against the match in protest at the situation in the Middle East.

The match was scheduled to be played from March 6th to 8th at the Baltiska Hallen venue, which can hold 4,000 spectators. Police had said the match could go ahead and that the public could be admitted.

The decision to ban the public was made by the council’s sports and recreation committee on Wednesday afternoon. A Social Democrat and Left Party-led motion to have the match played in an empty hall was passed by five votes to four.

A “Stop the Match” campaign has been underway in Sweden since Israel’s offensive in Gaza erupted last December, and thousands of demonstrators are expected to rally outside the Baltiska Hallen during the match, according to campaign organizers and police.

Some members of Malmö’s Jewish community find it hard to believe that the decision was taken purely on safety grounds:

”I can’t prove it but it is hard not to view it as political,” said community member Barbro Posner.

“The decision is a capitulation to violence and the mob, but it is in line with the malignant atmosphere for Israel and Jews in Malmö.”

According to Posner, Malmö’s Jewish community has been the recipient of “concrete threats” in recent months. A recent peaceful demonstration in support of Israel and civilian victims on both sides of the violence in the Middle East, which Posner helped organize, was pelted with rotten eggs, bottles, stones and tomatoes.

The Davis Cup match between the two countries hit the headlines in January when a prominent Social Democrat in southern Sweden likened Israel to apartheid South Africa and Nazi Germany in calling for a boycott.

“Israel is an apartheid state. I think Gaza is comparable to the Warsaw ghetto,” said Ingalill Bjartén, the vice chair for the Social Democratic women’s organization (S-kvinnor) in Skåne in southern Sweden, to the Sydsvenskan newspaper.

“I’m surprised that Israel – where large numbers of the population suffered under the Nazis – can do the exact same things the Nazis did.”

I Emiraterne man valgt at lade publikum sidde og istedet sortere i spillerne ifølge Jyllands-Posten

 Shahar Peer, der er rangeret som nummer 48 i verden og flere gange har dannet doubleduo med danske Caroline Wozniacki, fik søndag besked på, at hendes visum ikke er blevet godkendt. Det oplyser nyhedsbureauet AP.

Dermed får Peer ikke mulighed for at deltage i ATP- og WTA-turneringen Dubai Open, der begynder i dag.

Den israelske tennisspiller satte ellers nye grænser, da hun i fjor deltog ved Qatar Open i Dubai som den første israelske kvinde på WTA-touren nogensinde. Men siden er forholdet mellem de arabiske lande og Israel forværret efter, at konflikten i Gaza i de seneste måneder er optrappet.

Caroline Wozniacki har desværre valgt at vægte professionalisme over for den gode smag af regulært jødehad ifølge Ekstra Bladet

Den 18-årige dansker er forundret over, at Shahar Peer ikke får lov til at deltage ved Dubai Championships.

- Hun ønskede at tage derhen som tennisspiller. Folk skal have lov til at spille, og det burde ikke være et problem, men sådan er verden, siger Wozniacki.

Hun har meget at lære.

  1. ‘…A “Stop the Match” campaign has been underway in Sweden since Israel’s offensive in Gaza erupted last December, and thousands of demonstrators are expected to rally outside the Baltiska Hallen during the match, according to campaign organizers and police…’

    Sverige, Pittelkows ‘definerende klasse’ kan ikke se det sportslige perspektiv. Politikerne kan ikke engang se det bagved liggende politske problem. Men det sikkerhedsmæssige kan de sagtens få øje på.

    Snart burde enhver sportslig fraternisering med fascist-staten Israel være utænkelig.
    Snart burde Sverige være nødt til at koncentrere landets jøder i særlige interneringslejre for at beskytte dem mod befolkningens berettigede harme.

    Snart bliver den svenske stat og regering også vred på landets jøder.
    Hvorfor rejser jøderne dog ikke bare hjem, når nu ingen i Sverige kan lide dem?
    I stedet lader de sig internere og ligge den svenske stat til byrde.

    Med venlig hilsen

  2. Det varer ikke længe før Danmark for en særskilt asylpolitik for svenskere. Der skal vi være meget varsomme og indføre en streng sindelagskontrol så vi ikke får de svenske masser af kulturradikalere ind så de kan gøre mod os, hvad de gjorde derhjemme.
