How many Israeli spectators or others with Israel stamped in their passports were allowed into Dubai to attend the games? Rather few I suspect.

First of all, I think it's better to look at it the other way around: Shahar's achievements in Dubai overshadow the Mossad operation. This time we prove that our tennis is just as deadly on the court! :-) Second, thank you for your kind regards. I wish that Israeli Arabs would also excel in sports and together with Jewish athletes, would represent Israel and everything that is good about it, to the world. Just like the soccer players Abbas Suan, Walid Badeer, and Salim Toama.

Jew from Israel, it is important to emphasize. Instead of using sports to promote peace with the Jewish state, the Arabs of Dubai opted to continue the anti-Israeli attitude even in the courts of sports. Let us hope things will change soon.

rami, why would you jump to conclusions that mossad is guilty even before any solid proof is unearthed???? are you in the habit of not allowing the investigation to go fully 100%? are they guilty before any prooven innocence? i know that in arab society like yours, the court hears a case for 5 minutes and executes the man, whether innocent or guilty. in israel and abroad, people have patience and do not execute without full proof. i suggest you learn modern law and ways of democratic and civil court procedures....not arab style, though.
