Saudis checkmate themselves for barring Israelis from chess competition

Although there have been ties forming between Israel and Saudi Arabia lately, the latter still won't allow entry to Israelis, and so, a chess tournament's been cancelled there:
The World Chess Federation has barred Saudi Arabia from hosting the next world championship because it won’t let Israelis enter the country to participate.

Despite the covertly warming of diplomatic relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom continues to bar Israelis from entering the country.

Earlier this month, two Israeli nationals petitioned the international chess governing body, fighting the discrimination they faced when prevented from taking part in a chess tournament in Saudi Arabia last year because of their nationality.

Riyadh has now been stripped of the competition, which is likely to be moved to Russia.
And Russia, in all due fairness, is more or less a better place to hold such a tournament than in a country where women still suffer the terrible experience of oppression. That's another reason not to give Saudi Arabia the chance to host the current tournaments.

Simply put, by continuing their anti-Jewish discrimination, the Saudis have moved their chess pieces into a checkmated position.

Quick quote from famous Jewish actress:

“No one expected Henry to survive one day;
instead he lived for 8 days.

It was sort of like the Chanukah miracle.”

SOURCE: Mila Kunis in:
The Angriest Man in Brooklyn,
a movie released 2014 May 23,
starring Robin Williams and Mila Kunis

PS: Mila Kunis is Jewish.

PS: Robin Williams died in August 2014,
only a few months after this movie was released.

This is ironic, because in that movie, Robin Williams
played a character who had a very short time left to live.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
