Join Bridge Winners
Banned in Bali

The Israeli women's team qualified for Bali by finishing 6th in the European championships.  Indonesia doesn't recognize Israel, and wouldn't issue any visas there. It also refused to even discuss the security arrangements for the Israeli team.  Rather than intervene, the World Bridge Federation asked Israel to withdraw if it couldn't arrange travel to the tournament.  Israel had to withdraw. I think the WBF pusillanimity was disgusting.
