Israeli authorities barred five Palestinian soccer players from traveling to this Gulf nation for today's World Cup Asian qualifier against Uzbekistan.

Apparently cultural and sporting boycotts are fair game. When do democratic nations begin barring athletes and products from Israel, a nation clearly in violation of the UN's anti-Apartheid declaration?

Have a link. In case someone asks.

Israel’s civil administration, the military unit that deals with civilian affairs in the territories, said the five had been barred from traveling because of a “general security alert.” It did not elaborate.

A general security alert. That certainly nails it down.
