Malaysia has been stripped of hosting the 2019 World Para Swimming Championships for refusing to let Israelis compete, says the International Paralympic Committee.
Malaysia, which is a majority Muslim country, banned the athletes because of what Kuala Lumpur sees as Israel’s poor treatment of Palestinians.
Whatever one’s issues with a particular country are, it is guaranteed that is not the athletes competing in international events that re causing the issues.
Can we please, as a species, keep politics out of sports? Please?!
