Iranians refuse to meet Israeli team in Karate Tournament

Karatekas Refuse to face Israeli team: "TOKYO (IRNA) -- Two Iranian karatekas Saturday avoided facing their Israeli rivals at the world shotokan meet as a gesture of opposition to the Zionists' crimes in Palestine.
Talking to IRNA, Ahmad Saafi heading the Iranian team said Hadi Bakhshi edged past his opponents and reached the final of the 17-18 age group.
The karateka won the silver as he refused to clash against the Israeli finalist, added the official."
