Two Israelis, Yoav Omer and Noy Drihan, will not be able to defend their titles at the Youth Sailing World Championship in Malaysia after the Israel Sailing Association (ISA) announced they will not send a delegation because of anti-Israel demands made by organisers.

The ISA claims that the International Sailing Federation (ISAF), the International Olympic Committee and the hosts will not allow the surfers to compete under the Israeli flag and could not use any symbol affiliated with Israel on their clothing or surfboard. Also, if an Israeli should win a gold medal, the hosts said they would not play the Israeli national anthem.

In addition, they have yet to receive visas to travel for the Sunday competition.

“The Malaysians’ demands are unacceptable, and as we haven’t received the visas, we decided not to participate. We condemn the unsporting conduct of the organizing committee. We will not agree to be humiliated and we are considering filing a lawsuit against the ISAF and the host country in coordination with the Olympic Committee of Israel,” ISA chairman Gili Amir said.

Omer won the gold medal in the Under-19 for men in the last championships and Drihan won for the women in Under-17 and Under-19 competition.

    Like with all muslim nations, Malaysians are ashamed of the failures of their dysfunctional societies and terrified of the success of the west and especially of those descendents of dogs and monkeys, the Jews of Israel.

    How else other than with racism, supremacism, hate and boycotts can they live with the shame?

    A lawsuit is an excellent idea
    In this day and age racism is illegal in the civilized world
    All major world sporting bodies should immediately condemn
    The Malaysian Government for its antiquated and preposterous attitude towards
    In the meantime Malaysians are condemned to a third-world environment where
    Murderous/ignorant government officials continue to breathe poverty and devastation upon
    Their people
    Israel does NOT need to compete under these circumstances !

    The malaysian Government is an outright racist and anti semitic, anti Christian entity.
    It has now for over a generation thrown out their Christian and Chinese background university students.
    At UNSW this meant that between 40 and 60 places were always taken by non Muslim Malaysians because they were prevented from studying in their home nation.

    Mahatir the ex long term president was a renown jew hater as well.

    We should
    1/ publicise the blatant and and disgusting racism of the malaysian government
    2/never travel with malaysian Airlines and tell all who listen that it is racist, as well as obviously life endangeringly incompetent.
    3/avoid all holidays within malaysia.
    4/boycott all financial/business dealings where the malaysian government is involved.
    5/write to their embassy as I have stating that at any and every time I can, i will inform all of the malaysian Government,s racism and virulent anti semitism
