    I welcome diversity in all sports. Sports can be a unifying force that transcends national , ethnic, racial and religous divisions.

    This is silly. There are no extra bigoted attacks because he is Palestinian. Yes he has to deal with what any minority has deal, which is very bad, but this not an attack on the mainstreaming of Palestinians. There have been Arabs and Muslims in NFL some have even been stars.

    David Horowitz is an extremist and in my opinion a Muslim-hating bigot. But even Abe Foxman came to Aboushi's defense.  And when Abe Foxman defends you against charges of anti-Semitism, you really don't have a lot to worry about:

     ‘‘Absolutely nothing in the public record suggests Aboushi is anything other than a young American athlete who takes pride in his Palestinian heritage,’’ ADL director Abraham H. Foxman said. ‘‘His participation in a conference organized by the El-Bireh Society, a Palestinian community organization that was until recently defunct, should not be used to tar him as an extremist.’’

    Foxman added that being pro-Palestinian ‘‘does not mean you’re an anti-Semite or an extremist. ... The record simply does not show that Aboushi has crossed that line.’’
