It is reprehensible for an organization such as the IOC which represents unity and brotherhood through sports, to renege on their own Olympic Code Of Ethics by allowing the Lebanese team to erect screens so as not to view the Israeli athletes at the Summer 2012 Olympics. In so doing they have not only allowed discrimination to take place in their arena but in effect are promoting it. Not only should the Lebanese committee be expelled but additionally those members of the IOC who did not prevent this act of bias from occurring.

      I support Israel without reservation, and condemn all cases of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel actions by international organizations such as the UN and the IOC! Those groups are known to pander to the third-world nations' anti-Semitism, and this must NOT be tolerated!

      It is wrong to cause others pain...that are 'different' religions or cultures!!The 'Lebanese' have some real problems IF they can't be sportsman??? Then they need to stay home and argue and 'fight' each other..lol and leave the Israelis alone!! Peroid!! Maybe they will learn to keep their mouths shut IF they don't get to play? For goodness sake ..Why are qwe letting people be soooo cruel to each other iin this world? I'm going to pray for them to get some 'feelings' for others..

      As a Christian, I am called to support Israel at all times. God still "blesses those who bless Israel and curses those who curse her," see GENESIS 12:1-3. i am a BIG OLYMPIC fan as well, and I still remember the tragedy tat befell the Israeli Team at Munich in 1972. There should have been a MOMENT OF SILENCE at the OPENING AND/OR CLOSING Ceremonies at the London Games to honor their memory. This is the least the IOC can do to support Israel at this time.

      There are those who have told me that the IOC will never change, that Israel should no longer participate in the Olympics where they are discriminated against. I disagree! I have been fortunate in my time to see change brought by the civil rights movement, in gender equality for women, in the gay rights movement,to name a few. No athlete of any nationality should be affected by bias in the Olympic...s! No team should be further victimized by being forced to boycott and lose their right to participate. The Israeli team have been victimized in the past by terrorists, now they have had to contend with being ostracized by the Lebanese team. It is the responsibility of the IOC to not allow bias to be shown to any team. Demand that the IOC uphold their own Code Of Ethics and expell the Lebanese team for discrimination. PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE THIS PETITION WITH AS MANY AS YOU CAN! Thank you
