It seems the Iranian judo champion refused his scheduled match in the Olympics. What was Arash Miresmaeili's problem?
He had to fight an Israeli.
Yes, Arash Miresmaeili was disqualified after he reportedly failed to make the weight for his match against Ehud Vaks.
"Although I have trained for months and was in good shape, I refused to fight my Israeli opponent to sympathize with the suffering of the people of Palestine, and I do not feel upset at all," he said.
This is what the Arab world has come to. They refuse to fight their sworn mortal enemy! Losing to Israel would be worse than just fighting one, no? Then again, the Arab world should be used to losing to by now having gone 0 for Everything Since 1947.
I guess the Iranians need a Track & Field event where you dress up as a pregnant woman, hide in an ambulance and try to be the first to sneak C4 over the finish line.
