    For the first time in history, the Israeli anthem was played during the medal awarding ceremony in Abu Dhabi when the Israeli lightweight judoka Sagi Muki won a gold medal at the Grand Slam judo tournaments on Sunday, after beating Belgium’s Casse Matthias.
    Muki won with an ippon, after he nearly lost with two penalties.

    I want to praise Abu Dhabi for the spirit of sportsmanship.
    There are disgusting states like Iran that put politics before sport .
    A new era is coming to the Middle East :applause:
