The media largely commented the « sport diplomacy » led by such countries as Qatar. But they almost never evoke the claims of Islamist theocracies to subject Muslim sportswomen with rules of their own, as a condition to allow them to participate in competitions such as the Olympics. From the 1992 Barcelona Games to Rio 2016 this book reveals their strategy. It describes how Iran and Saudi Arabia, with the very active complicity of international Women and Sports networks, led the sports authorities to flout their own ethical and technical rules, and therefore the universalism of modern sport: they shamefully accepted a discrimination between women athletes imposed by those countries, and requirements such as : outfit covering the whole body and head, refusal of disciplines that are not deemed coranic, refusal of both women and men being together. Thus they betray the Muslim women pioneer heroes and Olympic medalists of North Africa threatened by extremists because they respect the common rule of sport. In addition a chapter reveals how sport, specially football, is being used to recruit soldiers among the young people by dangerous forces.
