"The Palestinians will easily be able to squeeze into the generous 4 man dormitory we have left for them, however, we will have to cut off any water and lighting for their own safety" said a spokesperson.
Reaction to the plans has been slow and equivocal. The US team manager has explained that Israel have allowed the Palestinians to stay and besides, "we Americans don't interfere in other peoples' national politics - well, not Israeli politics anyway." The US government has sent the Israelis extra high-tec running shoes on the understanding that the water and lighting will be switched on again. The Israelis have yet to respond to this move. Unnamed sources report that, if the Israelis refuse to review their tactics, the US government may be forced to do nothing.
The Palestinians are understandably frustrated by the lack of international support other than that from Banksy who has decorated their dorm with anti-war murals.
The team manager reacted strongly: "We will defeat the Israelis utterly and completely - on the track, on the field and in the pool. They will leave with nothing - absolutely nothing and we will not rest until that has happened".
The IOC has refused to comment until presented with a multi-million dollar epic video of how the Israeli move will benefit the world, accompanied by suitable "gifts" which help to illustrate the benefits.
