Egyptian judo star refuses to shake Israeli’s hand at Olympics

Don’t do it, son, said the Egyptian father.

TV host Mataz Matar demanded that El Shehaby withdraw: “My son watch out, don’t be fooled, or fool yourself thinking you will play with the Israeli athlete to defeat him and make Egypt happy. Egypt will cry; Egypt will be sad and you will be seen as a traitor and a normalizer in the eyes of your people.”

So. Don’t even “play with” him.

Comment by Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer:

A normalizer. Islamic supremacists are determined never to treat Israel normally. They want it destroyed. That is all. No negotiated settlement will ever mollify them. But Western leaders persist in their fantasies nonetheless.

Western leaders, not least of them nor the least fantastic in his thinking, Pope Francis.
