I agree.

Players have no say where they are born and if you want to host an International event you need to take the players regardless of where they're from.

What if the World No 1, 2 and 3 were Israeli?

How can you pick between so called good and bad countries? Who decides? What if the player doesn't agree with their country's politics? t would be a disaster for any sport if countries tried to do that. It's illogical and unfair.

just read at what nonsense you spot on. Israel is not popular and you perfectly the reasons, if Venezuela is known of being a dicatorship so what do we say about Israel?(genocide,illegal colonisation,racisme...) If the country policy in Venezuela is like that well that their concern, it is interior policy and wta nor any other autority can interfere in it. Just live with that. Not every country must be with Israel and THANK GOD many are NOT.
That's politics.

If every country banned players from countries it didn't like there would be no tournaments!

Sport should not be ruled by politics and players should be able to play in tournaments. It is not hard to separate politics from sport - most countries do it.

True. Whenever anybody mentions socialized medicine in this country, the righties scream: Stalin, Hitler, Communist! Hitler was a fascist--that's like the opposite of a communist

Lol and your British so just a guilty as France. The only French territory regarded by the UN as non self governing is New Caledonia. The UK has 10 on the list a list which only has 16 territories on it. Who's exactly is the modern colonialist then?

Regarding sport and politics would people have advocated engagement with apartheid South Africa on sporting terms, the IOC didn't think so.
