Palestinian-Jordanians clamor for justice -

I have always held that sport in the Arab world (and elsewhere) has been deceitfully converted into and used as a divisive tool, dragging the masses into direct or indirect confrontations that only serve the corrupt rulers. Regardless of the identity of the victims on this occasion or any other, sane voices must pay serious attention to this madness and interfere to stop the ruling classes from further dividing the Arab world along fictitious borders, established by the colonial powers and enforced by their servants.
