The International Judo Federation has suspended a judoka who refused to compete against an Israeli ath- lete at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Fethi Nourine flew to Japan with the Algerian team but withdrew from the Games when he saw he'd been scheduled to fight Tohar Butbul, of Israel, in the second round.
Nourine' also withdrew from the 2019 world champi- onships in Tokyo to avoid facing an Israeli competitor.
"We worked a lot to reach the Olympics,' Nourine said, according to Sky News. "But the Palestinian cause is bigger than all of this."
Citing Algerian TV, Sky News added that Nourine said he would not "get his hands dirty.'
Nourine's judo coach Amar Benikhlef supported his athlete's withdrawal. "We were not lucky with the draw;' Benikhlef said. "We got an Israeli opponent and that's why we had to retire. We made the right decision."
The International Judo Federation [IJF] said it sus- pended Nourine because the stance opposed its philosophy.
"The IJF has a strict non-discrimination policy, pro- moting solidarity as a key principle, reinforced by the values of judo,' read a statement on its website.
The IJF added that both Nourine and Benikhlef will now face "disciplinary sanctions."

- Alabama Republican Gov. Kay lvey on Thursday called out "the unvaccinated folks" for the rise in Covid-19 cases in her state, a remarkable plea at a time when many GOP leaders are refusing to urge people to get vaccinated even as Covid-19 cases
surge in many parts of the country.
"Folks are supposed to have common sense. But it's time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It's the unvaccinated folks that are letting
us down," vey told reporters in Birmingham.
Alabama is the least vaccinated state in the country, with roughly 33.9% of residents fully vaccinated, according to data from the US Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention. Average daily Covid-19 cases in Alabama are nearly double what they were a week ago, and more than four times higher than they were
two weeks ago.

The COVID coverup is reminiscent of how the Soviets attempted to cover up Chernobyl. Then the truth was exposed and they could not deny it, yet the modern communists learned from the past, refusing to acknowledge, and blocking any investigation into the
Origins.
