IOC Officials: What's A "Munich Massacre"?
From the New York Post:
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the massacre at the 1972 Olympic Games of 11 Israel athletes and coaches by Palestinian terrorists. As a reminder of the atrocity, the Israeli Olympic Committee asked that there be a moment of silence to honor the victims at the commencement of the Games.
The International Olympic Committee has refused to agree. The best IOC President Jacques Rogge could do was to promise to attend the Israeli delegation’s traditional tribute to the victims.
Yeah. "Within the family". Lots of ugly things can be hidden there. But the moral cowardice of the IOC cannot. They'd rather side with the Muslim world and the anti-Semites of Europe (both of whom would no doubt call for a competing show of solidarity for the "victims" of the Israeli "occupation") than remind the world of the fact that Jew-hatred has no boundaries, and that some of the greatest current proponents of this poisonous philosophy are competing in the 2012 Olympics.
The Israelis are not fooled by the IOC's "solidarity in a closet":
As Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said: “This rejection told us as Israelis that this tragedy is yours alone and not a tragedy within the family of nations.”
None will mourn. A few, however, will celebrate...you can bet on it.
For what it is worth...never forget:
