“I am honoured and proud to have qualified to represent the United States in the Women’s World Championship. But, if the situation remains unchanged, I will most certainly not participate in this event.”
That’s Nazi Paikidze, USA chess champ, speaking after the appeasement monkeys of Fide, the game’s world organisation, sank to their collective knees, pandering to the primitive savages who every day disdain civilised values in Iran.
The sell-out swine on Fide’s Commission for Women’s Chess, have called on participants to respect “cultural differences” and accept the regulations.
Hijabs have been mandatory for women in Iran since the Islamic Revolution of 1979 and the strict law is enforced by the country’s “morality police.” Any woman found not wearing one in public faces arrest, a fine or public admonishment.
Shariah bigotry, more like!
Sexist put-downs are not something that should be met with respect.
Sectarian discrimination against women is an affront.
Good to see it’s not only women who are speaking up against foul Fide.
Nigel Short, the British former world title contender, said: “There are people from all sorts of backgrounds going to this, there will be atheists, Christians, all sorts of people.
“If you are deeply Christian why would you want to wear a symbol of Islamic oppression of women?”
Men and women from EVERY SPORT should show solidarity on this.
Permanent boycott of the barbarous country is the obvious response to this latest display of shariah arrogance!
Let’s inundate the crawlers with protests.
And local and national government bodies in civilised countries should withdraw all recognition, support and funding from foul Fide.
