This will offend Western sensibilities: but Israeli massacres and torture of children do not

I know. This will be circulated in Western media.  The refusal of the Egyptian player to shake hand with the Israeli player will be seen as an offense to Western sensibilities.  Western media will forget that Andrew Young was fired from his post at the UN for merely shaking hands with the PLO representative at the UN.  So don't give us sermons about behavior.  Israeli massacres and siege of Gaza don't offend Western sensibilities but the refusal to shake hands will.   I am sure that ADL will have something to say on the matter.
