Re: Sports Illustrated Article 1.) Wahl earned a degree in politics from Princeton; I hardly think he's unaware of global situations such as the endless one in Israel. 2.) Wahl is not Jewish, nor is he a Nazi, nor is he an anti-Semite. 3.) Please keep in mind that nearly all magazine writers must give up their work to editors. 4.) In my personal opinion, Americans get very little information that ever portrays our Arabic and/ or Muslim fellow humans in a positive light. The United States has historically been an ally of Israel and remains so for many good reasons, but this sometimes opens us up to fair criticism that we do not pay as much attention to the Arabic and/ or Muslim experience. A significant part of our population thinks Israel weilds its historical victim status like a bludgeon--and those who think this way aren't necessarily anti-Semite Nazi PC non-intellectuals . . . 5.) Most of you do realize Wahl travelled to Israel for the piece, right? 6.) While I think the true spirit of sport should be as apolitical/ unpolitical as possible, I'm not sure that means it is that way or that there aren't some compelling stories out there most Americans never get to hear. Just my two cents.
