"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Judo officials had previously said they would not let Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani (pictured above) compete in a headscarf because it was against the principles of the sport and raised safety concerns. But an agreement was reached after several days of IOC-brokered talks between the International Judo Federation and the Saudi Olympic Committee that clears the way for her to compete Friday in the heavyweight division. here
Let’s review. “Against the principles of the sport and raised safety concerns”. . . . and yet? I suppose it’s not longer ‘unprincipled’ or a safety concern?
Secondly, the Olympic committee, or International Judo Federation, was forced to consider “cultural sensitivity” of the Muslim kingdom”. Which translates, ‘do we want jihad against ourselves or not?’ Obviously, the answer turned out to be, “no”.
I think it’s time to turn this silly, politically correctly Olympic crapola off and turn on . . . . . . Gilligan’s Island. Anything with a few reliable standards.
