It is wrong to ban a player because of religous or ethnical differences. however if the tennis tournament were being held in Israel and a player were Arab you can bet the Israelis would ban that player and the rest of the world would stay mute. Pure hypocrisy all around!

Daniel Pipes replies:

That is nonsense. Take a look at the Israeli soccer league, for example, and see how Arabs star in it.
