Good Sports: Israeli Lacrosse team buys cleats for their Kenya rivals.

Sport, music and art have a way of bringing people together- of reaching across national borders and finding common ground.

In the 2019 Women’s Lacrosse U19 World Championships in Peterborough, Ontario Israel women played against the Kenya team,  defeating them 13-4.

During the match, the Israeli team realized that their opponents didn’t have cleats.  The next day, the Israelis brought the Kenya team brand new cleats.


Kenya, sporting their new cleats,  went on to defeat Belgium 16-9, earning its second win of the tournament.

“...Israel ended its rule over 98 percent [98%] of the Palestinian Arabs back in [year] 1995. It is the Palestinian Authority that rules them.

The gang [of political Far-Leftists and Progressives and Socialists] knows that Israel does not rule the area.
...................................

So why do the Progressive Networkers persist in promoting the fantasy that Israel rules over the Arabs?

Because demonizing Israel as the occupier galvanizes their followers.
It gives them something to be upset about...”

“Palestinians’ rights matter when targeted by Israel,
but not when targeted by the Palestinian Authority.

And Israeli rights never matter,
except when violated by Israel.”

“...the ADL has uncovered virulently
anti-Semitic passages in Qatari state textbooks.

These books claim that:

Jewish people are treacherous,
seek to conquer the world and follow
a perverted, invalid religion.

The books also contained numerous
examples of anti-Christian bigotry,
as well as incitement against the West.”

Qatar’s government also funds the
International Union of Muslim Scholars,
whose Secretary-General openly denies
the Holocaust, according to the
Middle East Media Research Institute.”
