This was in spite of a formal letter of apology from Ghaleb Majadla, Israel’s sports minister, to the Chinese government.
He is the first Israeli Arab Muslim to serve in the Israeli cabinet in the sixty-year history of the country, an appointment that was denounced by some right wing Jewish parliamentarians. >>>>>
Interesting that it takes a Muslim in Israel to apologize for something he has not personally done, for the State of Israel. Why does this ring a bell?
