    TELL 7O6T Their operation is not acceptable for DXCC awards..

    If these operators wish to make rules about who is or is not a suitable contact, then they should understand that they cannot be considered as a legitimate DXCC entity. and those making contact with them do so without gaining any credit. HOWEVER; their licencing authority should be aproached by IARU on the matter of excluding any callsign group or nation on grounds of institutional racism and international law..

    You are confusing ham radio with the real world.

    FWIW, The International Amateur Radio Union does allow one country to deny communications with another if it objects to such communications. I don't agree with it, but such is life.... See Section 23.1

    I would speculate that the world of hams would have rather heard Yemen than another net anyway OM.

    Wow. Fastest race-card I've ever seen pulled.

    Just because I don't care for your (not you, per say) politics, religion, or the funny hat you wear, it doesn't mean I hate your race. Hell, get in line. I hate everyone's politics and religion. (although hard to separate now-a-days)

    The operators did NOT "MAKE the rules." They are following the rules of the country that issued their license. If they violate those rules, they risk losing their privileges before the DXpedition is completed, and possibly other sanctions.

    It's certainly a sad situation, but political disagreements between ideologies and political adversaries have been a matter of fact since time immemorial. It's unfortunate that such disagreements have affected Amateur Radio. But as previously stated, the IARU (and the FCC in the U.S.) have provisions to allow sovereign states to prohibit their Amateurs from contacting Amateurs in specified other states or countries.

    Cool. You can start with the definition of "squatting".
