Kuwaiti refuses to compete against Israeli in jiu jitsu tournament in California, hailed as hero by BDS

Kuwaiti jiu jitsu champion Abdullah Al Anjari has been very public on social media about his decision on Saturday to drop out of a jiu jitsu tournament in Los Angeles.

He’s being hailed as a “hero” in Kuwaiti media and by the BDS Arabic account. As of this writing, I have not seen any other coverage of this story.

I also cannot find the bracket that he reproduces here. The Los Angeles championships aren’t until March and I didn’t see them issue any brackets.

As far as I can tell, the IBJFF does not have any written rules about penalizing athletes who refuse to compete. But it might be worth Tweeting them about this.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
