Women's Tennis Association Caves to Islamic Hate


The Women's Tennis Association has caved to the Islamic hatred of Israelis (Jews) and will continue to play in the Dubai Tennis Championship. This despite the fact that the UAE will not allow Israeli tennis player Shahar Peer into Dubai to play. This is just another business decision that caves and caters to Islam.

Statement from Larry Scott Re: Peer Visa Denial

Statement from Larry Scott, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, regarding the United Arab Emirates' decision to deny a Visa to Israeli Tour Professional Shahar Peer to play in the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships.

We are deeply disappointed by the decision of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) denying Shahar Peer a Visa that would permit her to enter the country to play in the Dubai Tennis Championships. Ms. Peer has earned the right to play in the tournament and it is regrettable that the UAE is denying her this right.

Following various consultations, the Tour has decided to allow the tournament to continue to be played this week, pending further review by the Tour's Board of Directors. Ms. Peer and her family are obviously extremely upset and are disappointed by the decision of the UAE and its impact on her personally and professionally, and the Tour is reviewing appropriate remedies for Ms. Peer and also will review appropriate future actions with regard to the future of the Dubai tournament. The Sony Ericsson WTA Tour believes very strongly, and has a clear rule and policy, that no host country should deny a player the right to compete at a tournament for which she has qualified by ranking.

Shame on them. No principles. No human rights policies that reject antisemitism. This Tennis Association did not only cave to anti-semitism. This Tennis Association became a party to anti-semitism by agreeing to hold the tournament. Anyone who participates in that tournament is a party to hatred, genocidal hate and anti-semitism. If I were in that tournament, I would pull out in solidarity with Shahar Peer. If I were anyone affiliated with that tournament in any way, I would boycott it in solidarity with Shahar Peer and all decent, loving, respectful, caring, civilized human beings all over the world.

Islam: Fascist Cultural System of Beliefs of Misogyny, Racism, Genocidal Racial & Religous Hatred for Jews and Non-Islamics pursuing global domination by murder, threats of murder, hostility, aggression, war, and terrorism.

Let the world that is civilized and believes in human rights stand with Shahar Peer and against the cowardice of the Women's Tennis Association.

The snub brought swift denunciations from the Women's Tennis Association and warnings that it could consider scratching Dubai from its calendar. The Tennis Channel canceled plans to televise the championships in protest.

Still waiting a Dubai ruling on Andy Ram the Israeli mens doubles specialist who ranks No.7 in world doubles.

We don't want anymore Islamisation of Europe. It has gone too far and is endangering our own culture and safety. For topics on Islam and what it exactly entails to keep conservative Muslims in the West, please see our blog:
