Please tell me that in the intervening years since the last passport debacle that nothing has been done to address the basic issue that the tribal passports do not conform to international standards for documentation of international travel - it has been 8 years after all and cost them participation in the games in the UK then. It would be a travesty on all sides if it was repeated.

Have to wonder if traveling from Canada is somehow trying to avoid the U.S. State Department who likely would have given them a heads up that there may be issues with the Israeli Government - who are not shrinking violets on the security/documentation piece of the process. The Israelis, like the Brits in the past, do not mess around and are not known for making exceptions to security protocols.

Is this because the Haudenosaunee still haven't updated their passports in nearly twenty years to meet international security standards like what happened with the England issue? Or is there another reason?

Just trying to get some additional info here. Good luck to them, I do want to see them playing in Israel.

From a pretty reliable source and one I trust, the Iroquois got out of Canada and are on their way.

Let's hope they are on their way; their first game is against USA Thursday at 8:30pm local time (1:30pm EDT).
