Palestinian leader praises Olympic Committee for rejecting a moment of silence for the 11 Israeli athletes slain by Palestinians at the Munich Games in 1972
In the video below is the kind of Israeli athlete they would like to massacre again today…or tomorrow…or the next day.
PalWatch The Palestinians are praising the International Olympic Committee’s decision not to hold a moment of silence in memory of the 11 Israeli athletes murdered in the 1972 Munich Olympics in the London Games’ opening ceremony, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Friday.
Jibril Rajoub, chairman of the Palestinian Olympic Committee, sent a thank you letter to IOC President President Jacques Rogge. In the letter, published by the Palestinian newspaper al-Hayat al-Jadida, Rajoub noted his appreciation for the position adopted by Rogge. “Sport is a bridge for love, unification and for spreading peace among the nations,” he wrote. “It must not be a cause for divisiveness and for the spreading of racism.”
The PA daily does not refer to the murder of the Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972 as terror. In the article about Rajoub’s letter, the killing of the athletes is referred to as “the Munich Operation, which took place during the Munich Olympics in 1972.”
The PA is against the moment of silence because they view the murder of Israelis by Palestinians not as terror but as heroism. Palestinian Media Watch has documented the PA’s ongoing policy to glorify terror and terrorists. The murder of the 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics is presented as a highlight of Palestinian “operations” and one of their great accomplishments. In 2010, the official PA daily referred to the Olympic massacre as a “shining station” and its planner was called a “star who sparkled… at the sports stadium in Munich.”
