And the world says nothing, does nothing, just like in the 1930s.
Athletic competition is a way to unite people. Sadly, the host of Catalan TV believes that athletic competition should be used as a platform to spread hatred, lies, and blood libels about Israel. The anti-Semitic host of Catalan TV should be fired.

Catalan TV host criticizes Israel during swimming competitionBy Jerusalem Post, June 21, 2021A Catalan TV host strongly criticized Israel during a swimming competition broadcasted to spectators of the sport, which was later posted on Twitter by the Combat Antisemitism Movement on Thursday.During the broadcast, when commenting on the Israeli women’s swimming team, the tv host said “Beyond the technical aspects, I would like to point out that Israel’s international presence in the field of sport and culture is another strategy for the laundering of genocide and the violation of human rights that they are committing against the Palestinian people.”
A Catalan @tv3cat commentator, Clara Basiana, made vile antisemitic remarks about Israeli swimmers at a recent Olympic qualifying event.

“We have seen it here, at the Pre-Olympic Games in Barcelona, we have seen it repeatedly at Eurovision. It seems that during these events the war crimes of the Israeli state disappear. We have to be aware as spectators and make this situation visible so as not to normalize it,” the host added.The comments come off the heels of the IDF’s Operation Guardian of the Walls and heightened tensions among Israeli Jews and Palestinians following incidences of violence in Jerusalem.
