 Top 10 List of Media Subplots If Jerusalem Hosts the 2020 Olympics.
10. British, Turkish and Greek windsurfing teams all feature veterans of previous Free Gaza flotillas.

8. The burning question: Will Anat Kamm leak Olympic drug test results to Haaretz?
7. Feuding Gaza vs. Palestine soccer teams give new meaning to "sudden death overtime."
6. Iran boycotts Olympiad, organizes alternative Islamic Nuclear Pride Games. President Hillary Clinton doesn't rule out US participation.
