Iran sports minister ‘antisemitic’ attack against Israeli athletes

The Iranian sports minister urged Iranian athletes to refuse to compete against Israeli athletes calling Israel a “child killing and occupying regime.”

Hamid Sajjadi termed Israel a “child killing and occupying regime,” sparking criticism from a highly decorated Iranian Greco-Roman wrestler.

Members of the Iranian parliament called on the Minister of Sports to ban Iranian athletes from competing with Israeli athletes, and unfortunately we now see that the Minister of Sports of the new Iranian government has the same message: a message of enmity and hatred.”
