    Lebanon is a failed state. That is the top and bottom of this. *

    ..... *It needs to look within itself as a society if it wants to become peaceful and prosperous.
    Well this is what Arabs by and large not only do now, but have done for well over a thousand years before the modern state of Israel even existed: blame the Jews for all their failings instead of looking in the mirror for a change.

    However I would say that Lebanese Christians who left the place have been a success story around the world while the Muslim population have been the complete opposite.

    Well, since the thread (which you chose to join) is specifically about this behaviour rather than international politics what do you think about the behaviour of the Lebanese team members?
    I think that for the sake of the Olympics they shouldn't have behaved in that manner.

    The Olympics are designed to bring people together and overcome divisions between people, in pursuit of human excellence.

    These pieces of human dirt don't deserve their place in an event of such prestige.
    hmmm, try telling that to the israeli atheltes at the Munich Olympics...

    But not for the sake of human decency and reasonable behaviour?

    We're not here to talk about Islam.

    A reasonable(and rather obvious) assumption would be that the Lebanese team's behaviour is to do with their experiences with Israel(you know,the 2006 war), Israel's massacre of the Lebanese people ,and their continued threats against us.
    Then they should boycott the Olympics as a whole for allowing Israel to take part.

    A North Korean and a South Korean diver managed to take a selfie.

    Shame on these Lebanese so-called "athletes". No true sportsman or woman, in the spirit of Olympics would have done this.
