Anti-Zionist Chess Champion Dies Aged 64


news.aol.com

REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) - Bobby Fischer, the reclusive American chess master who became a Cold War icon when he dethroned the Soviet Union's Boris Spassky as world champion in 1972, has died. He was 64.

The U.S. government said Fischer's playing the match violated U.N. sanctions against Yugoslavia, imposed for Serb leader Slobodan Milosevic's role in fomenting war in the Balkans.

Hounded across the world by the US Government and certain Zionist groups. Fischer was forced to take refuge in Iceland where he maintained a cloistered existence.

None of these publications admit the fact that Fischer died a fugitive, wanted by the US Government for allegedly breaking with US sanctions to play Spassky in Yugoslavia.

That Fischer was an adamant anti-Zionist sure didn't help him.
