The problem: Vaccination regulations that discourage professional athletes from playing in New York City.

It was absolutely hilarious to see the unvaccinated, unmasked Kyrie Irving sitting in the front row at Barclays among the crowds on Sunday, but due to the genius of our new mayor he is not allowed to play on the pitch a few yards away (“Let them play ball, Eric.” Editorial, March 16).

Mayor Adams is clearly following the “science,” whatever that even means.

What the nets should do is launch Kyrie at Barclays in the next game and challenge our newest henchman to do something about it. It’s time for some public civil disobedience to put an end to this stupidity.

Between arbitrary and capricious mandates, ridiculous threats of dismissal from employers, and other bizarre plays, the vaccinated was pitted against the unvaccinated in a struggle for moral superiority.

You can attend a sporting event if you are unvaccinated, but if you play unvaccinated you are persona non grata. They have cooties and aren’t worthy of being on the team — or at work or at family gatherings. When will this madness stop?

This New York mandate that doesn’t allow baseball and basketball players to attend home games is ridiculous.

Kyrie Irving can’t play in Brooklyn but can enjoy the game on the sidelines without a mask.

Can New York just stop with all this nonsense? The crazy thing is that unvaxxed players can join on the go.

New York has absolutely no leadership quality. Are you listening, Mayor Adams?

COVID has largely resolved itself, whether it’s the virus running out of breath or vaccinations putting it to bed. The data is clear, but common sense is lacking. Wake up, City Hall.

Wake up Adams. You have more pressing problems at hand than being a reflection of the past buffoon in office. Worry about crime, filth and homelessness and you will be a shining star.

Let sports teams do their thing as they see fit and take care of the business at hand.

The quality of life is appalling at best as the city has submerged in the septic tank created by Mayor Bill de Blasio. climb up

The problem: Amnesty chief Paul O’Brien’s claim that US Jews believe Israel should not exist as a Jewish state.

Kudos to The Post for telling readers the truth about Amnesty International and the new meaning of the label “progressive” (“Amnesty: Another ‘colony’ of the Left”, Editorial, March 15).

US Executive Director Paul O’Brien tells us that Israel has no right to exist as a Jewish nation-state if it oppresses another people.

But Israel is a light to the nations – the Jewish state, where non-Jews have full civil rights.

In signing the Oslo Accords, Israel did what no Arab state had ever done – it gave the Arabs of Palestine the opportunity to live under the administration of leaders of their own choosing.

Unfortunately, the chosen leaders have betrayed the trust of their people. The leaders of both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas have long since exceeded their elected terms.

It is hardly new that nefarious intentions often hide behind lofty names. Amnesty has long obsessively slandered Israel.

With his recent “apartheid” report, the US chief’s comments on “core Jewish values” and even opposing Israel’s right to exist, it’s clear his smiley face had long hidden a snarl.
