You anonymous “IOC dismisses Israel claim Iranian faked injury” comes to correct your earlier honest report by your Sports Writer (“Iran wins in soccer but withdraws from taekwondo”) and it does a fine job of taking any truth out of the reporting.
“IOC president Jacques Rogge has dismissed claims by Israel that an Iranian faked an injury” – left out is that this is standard practice by the Islamic dictatorship, not just an Israeli claim.
Israel called [it] political and claimed it was common for Iranians to avoid competing with Israelis.” What does AP mean with those verbs – that it wasn’t true?
The historical record is clear – and with that the burden of proof was on the Iranians, but they did not deliver. But AP chose their side anyway, as usual against Israel.
