Photo fakery, demands for segregated Olympics, and dismissal of Paralympians as losers. Yes, it's BareNakedIslam again
You know the way Bonni Benstock-Intall, white supremacist and Holocaust denier, loves to publish lies which are then immediately contradicted by the pieces she links? Well here she excels herself. OK, so she whinges again that the Olympic Committee has Muslim employees who carry stuff at medal ceremonies. OK, so she complains that Muslims are allowed to compete (and win gold medals, though she seems to go quiet about that). Then she publishes some pictures of the Olympics showing Woroud Sawalha of Palestine, who ran in Heat 5 of the Women's 800m yesterday. She whinges that "Palestine isn't a state so for whom is she competing": I wonder if she made similar comments when the athletes from American Samoa and the American Virgin Islands competed? Guess she hasn't noticed that you don't have to be a state to compete: hence the Independent Olympic Athletes competitors.
She shows a picture of Sawalha coming last in her heat: surprisingly she doesn't show Saudi runner Sarah Attar (one of the two women in the Saudi team) coming even more decisively last in the next heat. It's interesting, though, that the picture of Sawalha coming last is labelled "An unfaked photo of the race". As opposed to what? Well, her first picture shows Woroud Sawalha with a number of runners behind her, captioned "The AP faked this photo, the Muslim woman was not in the lead, just made to look that way". Well, it certainly looks faked: I mean, she isn't wearing the blue strip and white hijab we see in the "unfaked" picture. Not only that, but her name badge clearly says "Istanbul 2012" on it. Well, sombody is certainly passing off a fake picture here, but it's not AP. The picture shows Woroud Sawalha competing in the 800m heats at the 2012 World Indoor Championships in Istanbul. As the athlete on the left is the race winner Elena Kofanova, whose time over two laps was 1:59.80, and as Sawalha's time was 2:51.87, it seems pretty clear that the picture hasn't been faked to make it look as though she's in front: she is in front. It's what athletes call being lapped. And if she'd been less obsessed with inventing wicked media pro-Palestinian bias Bonni could have said so. But honestly: you show pictures of an athlete running with different competitors, in a different strip, and with a big label saying "Istanbul" and you expect your readers not to notice?
I've just checked the comments under that post, and there are five comments (plus replies from Bonni) happily oblivious to Bonni's fakery. Then someone queries why competitors are wearing "Istanbul" labels, and another says that the pictures show different women. Bonni then replies, brazen as anything, "Tom, it is the same woman in both photos, 2 different races. Look at the name on her shirt. The first photo only shows the very beginning of the race where she likely left from the most inside starting position. They did it that way to imply she was leading the race at some point.(Anyone in that position is in the lead for the first few seconds)". So she admits it's nothing to do with the Olympics. She still hasn't cottoned on to the idea of being lapped though. Even when another commenter explains about that, the rest keep on wittering about "photoshopping" and "the rigged photo". Duh....
Of course a few of Bonni's sheep can't restrict their ignorance to a simple inability to read writing (even with pictures):

Not only is the rigged photo of the inappropriately dressed muslima an insult to what the Olympics stands for…their Jihad code is AGAINST friendly competition with us INFIDELS (worthy only of death or converting to their cult). They want to conquer this planet including the Olympics. Disgusting that they are no outed
So the participation of Muslims in the Olympics proves that they don't want to compete with non-Muslims. *facepalm*

The Olympics are hardly a marathon Tom. Only the world’s TOP athletes are qualified to the standard required to compete.This is just and fair. No-one should be given special privileges .
Muslims should organise their own Olympics otherwise, there are enough countries surely to organise this ? and compete with each other but not be allowed to compete with the world’s best until they reach the standard.
Ah, right. So in the same way that America used to have separate facilities for blacks and whites, the Olympics should be segregated into Muslim and non-Muslim. (Not even Hitler tried to segregate the Olympics!) Leaving aside Britain's own devout Muslim Mo Farah, and other Muslims from Western countries and others such as India and Ethiopia, let's have a quick tally of medals won so far at these games by countries which are mainly Islamic (I may have missed a few):
Algeria 1G; Azerbaijan 2S 2B; Egypt 2S; Indonesia 1S 1B; Iran 4G 3S 1B; Kazakhstan 6G 2B; Malaysia 1S; Morocco 1B; Qatar 2B; Saudi Arabia 1B; Tajikistan 1B; Tunisia 1B; Turkey 1B; Uzbekistan 1B
I make that 11 golds, 9 silvers and 14 bronzes: not bad for folk who supposedly are unqualified to compete. Heck, Kazakhstan is tenth in the medals table and Iran 14th (with Australia, Netherlands and Japan in between). Still think Muslims can't compete with the big boys and girls? How many medals has Israel won? Oh, that's right, NONE. Perhaps Israel should be made to compete in a special Jewish Olympics to give them a chance of winning something. Oh, and four of Kazakhstan's gold medals were won by women (3 weightlifters and a triple jumper), and none of them wear hijabs.
Saving the best ignorant comment for last:

Aren’t these the people the Para-Olympics are for. Those who can’t keep up with the normal competitors? Embarrassing.
So the Paralympics (she can't even get the name right) are for losers; and being a Muslim is a form of disability. "Embarrassing" is the word that comes to mind, but for this anonymous piece of trash, not for Muslim Olympians or Paralympians.
