Two unidentified Iranian athletes, blue jackets, stand with their backs to Israel's team as U.S athletes are seen behind, during opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games Friday, Aug. 13, 2004 in Athens, Greece. Iranian world judo champion Arash Miresmaili, unseen, has pulled out of the tournament because he refused to fight an Israeli in his opening round match.(AP Photo/Hasan Sarbakhshian) (via Allah). Good riddance is my take on his pull-out.
