    The WTA can prevent any of its events from being in the UAE that is what I was getting at.

    Sorry you missed it.
    Your ignorance never ceases to amaze me. The Qur'an doesn't have a SINGLE passage within it mentioning the burqa. Not a single one. Women in Islam are not required to wear a Burqa. And women who are not Muslim aren't required either. Meaning the UAE would not have a single problem with letting women who are not Muslim or women who are Muslim play tennis if they so chose to. Tennis is not a religious activity. Sharia law is interpreted within a religious context.

    Spare me your liberal double talk.

    Examine the way women in the UAE dress. Look at how the Saudi's make their women dress?

    Ever hear of a Burquini?

    Sharia Law is an outdated concept that has no place in modern civilization.

    You're the one who's saying baseless things.

    Have you ever been to the UAE? Deira City Centre in Dubai?

    I think I've already told you before, the UAE has not implemented Sharia Law.

    At least do some research before saying UNTRUE things.

    Which proves what? That the majority of Muslim women in a Muslim country follow the Muslim religion? Well alright then. Aren't you a real Captain Obvious.

    Look at how the Saudi's make their women dress?
    UAE =/= Saudi Arabia. Try again.

    Ever hear of a Burquini?
    Couldn't care less. Whenever you have an actual argument please come back and talk

    Sharia Law is an outdated concept that has no place in modern civilization.
    - Vader. Listen. You tried. You failed. Your poll was a joke. One devoid of any kind of logic or fact. Just your opinion. And even that was weak.

    No.

    Individual nations must decide on their own to send teams to any particular forum, or not.

    Indivdual team members must decide if they're willing to go to those forums their nations are sponsoring them to go to.

    People went to the China Olympics. Can't find many nations more destructive of human rights than that. Must not be important, then.

    Oh, thanks for clearing that one up. I was wondering if the Los Angeles MTA had a global counterpart....

    Re: Should the UAE be banned from hosting international sporting events?

    In my opinion they should on the grounds that they refused to play ball and decided to use a sporting event to make a political statement. If a country agrees to host an event then they have to play by the rules of the committee of that particular sport. Sporting events really shouldn't be places for political statements. Sports IMO seems to be the last thing that seems to remain somewhat apolitical.

    Yeah, first time that's happened...

    More to the point....the committee setting up the event has to make sure the venue is suitable to the needs of the sport and the players.

    The irrational arab hatred for Isrealis is not a well kept secret. Therefore no one in their right mind should hold sporting events in irrational arab countries if those events might include the dreaded Jew, or worse, a dreaded Jewess that might inflame the passions of the muslim male.

    Sarcasm aside, ultimately the promoters of the sport should have declined to hold the event if the host nation was acting weird and hatefully irrational. It's not safe for the athletes.

    That is the ideal. But everything is a vehicle for nationalism these days.
