Egyptian judoka sent home after refusing to shake Israeli's hand

A week after a female Saudi Arabaian judo competitor allegedly forfeited her first-round match to avoid meeting an Israeli in the second round, Egyptian judoka Islam El Shehaby has been banished from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics for refusing to shake hands after losing to Israelís Or Sasson.

Sasson twice bowed in El Shehabyís direction and approached him with his hand extended after the victory, but the Egyptian backpedaled before walking away from the Israeliís appreciative gesture.

The International Olympic Committee reprimanded El Shehaby after the act of poor sportsmanship, and the Egyptian Olympic delegation sent the judoka home on Monday, according to Reuters.

This is merely the latest in a string of anti-Israeli behavior at the Olympics. Lebanese delegation leader Salim al-Haj Nakoula barred the Israelis from boarding a bus to the Opening Ceremony, drawing a warning from the IOC. Days later, Saudi Arabia judoka Joud Fahmy withdrew from competition to avoid a second-round match with Israeli Gili Cohen, the Times of Israel reported.

2. What a wonderful spirit for the games.

And no doubt he'll be treated like a hero when he gets home.

Pathetic.

12. Dick move, but likely necessary for survival.

Lost to an Israeli AND shook hands?

Like a death sentence.

Not excusing it, but I get it.
