“Quit Jerusalem Marathon, or we will boycott your chain of hotels”.
This was the messages from a lawyer representing the Arab Palestinian Authority’s agencies. He sent letters this week to the InterContinental hotel chain. Also the American sneaker company New Balance received threats.
The Arab lawyer warned sponsors of the Jerusalem Marathon of legal action if they did not withdraw their sponsorship.
They say the marathon, scheduled for March 1, is a “serious breach” of international law because it runs through east Jerusalem, territory that Israel captured during the 1967 war and later annexed. The Israelis see it as part of their capital city. The Arab League called for a boycott of Adidas over its sponsorship of the Jerusalem marathon last year.
“This is not politics, this is sport, this is culture,” said Jerusalem spokesman Barak Cohen.
“This is a major international event,” noting that 2,000 of the more than 18,000 registered runners were from 52 countries. “Arab residents and Jewish residents are welcome to participate and celebrate together.”

As expected, the international media is silent about this kind of Islamic blackmails.
Arab terrorists are permitted to spread their terror within the Western civilization facing less or hardly any resistance. To the radical opposite. The support for the barbarians are increasing.
Islamic forces invaded and occupied East Jerusalem in 1948, when the United Kingdom withdrew their colonial army. The Muslims looted, burned and destroyed more than 50 synagogues in East Jerusalem, before the city was fully liberated in 1967.
Now, the World support this kind of religious criminals. They get funds from the USA and EU, who backs their bid to get East Jerusalem back under Islamic occupation.
God of Israel is watching. Non of His enemies will stand on the day of the return of His Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth.
