Israeli basketball star and lantzman of R' Yitzchak Elchanan Spektor, Sarunas Jasikevicius, recently signed a 3-year contract with the Indiana Pacers. This was reported in many mainstream media outlets, local and international, including:
One report remains a bit different from the rest. The AP, when reporting the deal, doesn't mention Tel Aviv, doesn't mention Israel, and doesn't mention Maccabi, even though it's a pretty long article. It goes out of its way to AVOID mentioning Israel.
See for yourself. It's unbelievable:
If Jasikevicius' right arm unexpectedly starts giving him trouble, he'll know who to blame.
"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem..."
