Algeria – Threats of exclusion from international sports competitions over boycott of Israeli athletes

Algeria could be excluded from all international sports competitions starting with the next London Olympic Games of 2012. Indeed, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is contemplating such a decision because of the recent persistence of Algerian athletes to “invent excuses” to boycott Israeli athletes in international competitions. Even though the boycott is not systematic, it is apparently the result of a political decision due to the non-recognition of Israel by Algeria.
