Mosley’s not wel­come

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - BY SI­MON GRIVER

FORMULAONEGhaleb Ma­ja­dle, Is­rael’s Min­is­ter of Sport, has with­drawn an in­vi­ta­tion to FIA Pres­i­dent Max Mosley to visit the coun­try af­ter in­form­ing the or­gan­i­sa­tion that he would not be wel­come.

Dotan Olivier, spokesman for Is­rael’s Min­is­ter of Sport, in­sisted that Mr Ma­ja­dle had made an in­no­cent mis­take. “Mr. Ma­ja­dle was at­tend­ing the Jor­dan Rally and was of­fi­cially in­tro­duced to the Pres­i­dent of the FIA. With­out know­ing about his back­ground, he in­vited him to Is­rael to see how we are de­vel­op­ing mo­tor rac­ing as a new sports branch.

“In ad­di­tion to re­cent al­le­ga­tions by the News of the World re­gard­ing Mosely’s in­volve­ment in a sex­ual orgy on a Nazi con­cen­tra­tion camp theme, the IFA Pres­i­dent would have been per­sona non grata in Is­rael as the son of Bri­tish fas­cist leader Sir Oswald Mosely.
