Treppenwitz recently wondered if Munich was an appropriate venue for the 2018 Winter games given the city's unfortunate past when it had hosted the Olympics.
A recent article in OpinionJournal told of Qatar's Olympic bid. In the whole article not once does the reporter ask the most telling question he could: "Will Israeli athletes be allowed to participate?"
Given the IOC's shameful past, I don't expect that a refusal to let Israel participate would disqualify the bid.
