They were just athletes trying to compete. RIP Israeli Olympic team.
Idi Amin sent a telegram to Waldheim, copies of which went to Yasser Arafat and Golda Meir. In the telegram, Amin "applauded the massacre of the Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich and said Germany was the most appropriate locale for this because it was where Hitler burned more than six million Jews." Amin also called "to expel Israel from the United Nations and to send all the Israelis to Britain, which bore the guilt for creating the Jewish state." Among international protest "the UN spokesman said [in his daily press conference] it was not the secretary-general's practice to comment on telegrams sent him by heads of government. He added that the secretary-general condemned any form of racial discrimination and genocide."
I will never forget 26/11, Mumbai and all the innocents and the brave soliders who laid down their lives for the protection of the motherland India. Neither we will forgive the conspirators of the attack ! If ISRAEL can Avenge 1972 Munich Massacre Attacks where terrorists killed innocent Isareli athletes..during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Bavaria, in southern West Germany, when 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team were taken hostage and eventually killed, by terrorsits "WHY CAN'T WE TAKE AVENGE FOR 26/11 MUMBAI ATTACKS"... thought for TDAY..(our politicos and decision makers are impotent) NOTE:Golda Meir and the Israeli Defense Committee secretly authorized the Mossad to track down and kill those allegedly responsible for the Munich Massacre, terror that was perpetrated” (in Europe), To this end the Mossad set up a number of special teams to locate and kill these terrorists, aided by the agency's stations in Europe. ***LET'S TAKE A PLEDGE TO PUT an END TO TERRORIST ATTACK's ON OUR MOTHERL ...

After the 1972 massacre of Israeli Olympic athletes, then Prime Minister Golda Meir along with key high ranking officials decided to send a message to anyone contemplating action against Israel. All perpetrators and most even remotely involved were executed wherever found. Without any interference from internal press or politics. We need someone with the balls of that woman! And if everyone made a stand like Brad, the Gov would be forced to pay attention to our voices!
I'm reposting part of my dad's article published during the Olympics pertaining to Terror attacks. Read how our family dealt with the Lod Airport Massacre in Tel-Aviv while flying into Israel where we lived in the early 70s Subject: Reflections of a Changing World As Published by Dr. R.E.Lavengood Last week, the British Olympic Committee rejected a request for one minute of silence in memory of the Israeli Olympic team that was killed in Munich. I was flooded by memories of a simpler past. You were there, but you may have forgotten some of it. My wife, three children, and I flew to Vienna for a meeting at the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). It was a long flight that included a helicopter ride from one New York airport to the other. It was exciting. Because of the duration of the flight UNIDO required that I have three days rest before conducting business. We used that time to explore Vienna. It was spectacular. I have many memories worth repeating here. (I edited out a section ...
September 5, 1972 Palestinian terrorists attacked the Israeli Olympic team at the summer games in Munich
remembers the 11 slain on the Israeli Olympic delegation, and the one German police officer, in Munich, 40 years ago.
Today's random trivia . . . More Olympic scandals - The 1972 games were seriously interrupted when Palestinian terrorists took members of the Israeli Olympic team hostage and killed eleven of them. The U.S. boycotted the 1980 Olympics in Moscow to protest the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and the Soviets in turn boycotted the 1984 games in Los Angeles. North Korea joined in and boycotted the 1988 games to protest the Olympics being held in Seoul. The 1996 Atlanta games were dealt a serious blow by the terrorist bombing by Eric Rudolph that killed two people and injured over a hundred. Although doping has been part of athletics for some time, the use of artificial stimulants and steroids has only recently become controversial. In the past, athletes routinely used things like strychnine, Benzedrine, and even opium to aid in their performance. After Ben Johnson’s scandal in 1988, the use of drugs began to be a major issue. In 2000, Romanian gymnast Andreea Raducan was found to have been using pseudoep ...
David Cameron has paid tribute to the 11 Israeli Olympic athletes killed in 1972 by Palestinian gunmen in Munich, describing it as "one of the darkest days" in Games history.

The International Olympic Committee recently denied an outpouring of requests for a moment of silence during the opening ceremonies of the London Games to commemorate the 11 Israeli Olympians murdered at the 1972 Munich Olympics. This Sunday (August 12), Ankie Spitzer – the widow of slain Israeli Olympic coach Andrei Spitzer – will lead a worldwide minute of silence during the opening ceremonies of the JCC Maccabi Games. In Rockland it will take place at Eugene Levy Fieldhouse at Rockland Community College (145 College Road, Suffern, NY) and for those who are unable to attend in person, it will be broadcast live between 8:00 – 9:00 p.m. EDT.
I have 2 places left for a memorial service for Munich Massacre at 1830pm on Monday at Guildhall. There will be Israeli Olympic athletes, Israeli and Uk politicians and some big names in business etc. there. First 2 to respond to this by private fb message get to go. I need to give names in to embassy ASAP.
40 years ago, 11 Israeli Olympic athletes were murdered by "Palestinian" Muslim terrorists. The IOC (International Olympic Committee) STILL refuses to acknowledge it or give even a minute of silence to their memory- but WE remember the Munich Massacre- vividly- and these athletes are always in our thoughts and prayers.
In remembrance of the Israeli Olympic Team who should NOT be forgotten.
What does Israeli judo team actually smell like?
Anything can be made to "LOOK" racist if that's how one wants to view it. This IS ACTUALLY, discrimination and of the worst kind!

They should feel ashamed but I'm sure they don't care !
In honor of the 1972 Israeli Olympic Team murdered in one of the first Islamic acts of terror.
The only ones that are racist are the ones that don't want to take time to honor these very special people that lost their lives. I am disgusted by the lack of respect to these Olympic Heroes.
Did you know: at least 35% of the "Israeli" athletes competing in the are settlers who arrived to post-Soviet Union Collapse
All these endless hours of pointless Olympic pageantry, and not a spare moment of silence for the murdered 1972 Israeli Olympians.
Shalom - only liberals with a hatred of Israel would say that
I can't believe this...How can honoring athletes murdered by terrorist "RACIST"?

At least they managed to cry about not having a moment of silence for the 1972 Israeli team

I didn't see any tribute to the terrorist Olympic israeli victims killed 40 years ago in Munich during the Olympic Games.
Minute of silence for Israeli Olympic heroes who were murdered?
Just dawned on me. Do you think Israeli Olympic athletes have Israeli secret service protection? My instinct says, you better know it.
Lebanese judo team won't practice next to Israeli team. Stay classy (h/t
remains a patriotic country. Watching Olympic gymnastics, lots of Israeli flags in the crowd (is there an Israeli competitor here?)
Enjoyed opening cer. But no moment of silence to honour 11 Israeli Olympic athletes massacred 40 years ago disappointing.
Thank you Bob Costas for mentioning the murder of Israeli Olympic atheletes in 1972. *** on NBC and the Olympic Executive Commitee who dismissed the anniversary because they did not want to offend the Palestinians and some Arabian countries. The MURDER of the innocent atheletes offends me.
In the Radical Liberal Anti-Israeli WITHOUT COMPASSION universe! People like THAT are in perpetual DENIAL!
Sounds like that person needs to lose there job!
More Olympic awesomeness: Olympics: Lebanese team refuses to train near Israeli athletes.
Racism has become the blame for everything.
Read this. Think about it. A moment of silence is NOT forcing religion on anyone. If you don't believe in any Higher Being, just chant "nothing, nothing, nothing"" in your mind.
Let's wish for the team to break a leg, neck, and hand.
Getting to be to much "Racist" in this world.We the people support you Israel!!!
If the killings had been the other way would it be "racist".
"Lebanese refuse to train next to Israeli team Not much Olympic spirit from the Lebanese then.

I remember staying up all night, praying and hoping these eleven people would be OK.Only to watch in horror, the loss of thier lives at the hands of terrorists, who never planned to let them go. Not to recognize these great athletes is to poor more hurt on the wounds of the families.

With Olympic opening ceremony approaching, here are my thoughts on how to honor slain Israeli athletes in Munich '72.
But by signing an Israeli aid package under the Olympic opening ceremonies knowing how fragile that region is just looks BAD
“To all the nay-sayers, the politicians sitting at the one spot that should be devoid of politics, and those who use politics as an excuse to refuse that request, especially you, Mr. Rogge – at the end of the day, whatever excuse you use to refuse it – whatever politically appropriate verbal dance you use – is just not good enough…Let’s hope that our improvised moment of silence will carry a loud and clear message that resonates with humanity and let it be to “Terminate Terrorism, long live the Olympic spirit.” -Avraham Melamed, Surviving Member of the Israeli Olympic Team at the 1972 Games [of the IOC refusal to hold the Munich moment of silence]

About 50 residents gathered in downtown Teaneck on Friday for a moment of silence in honor of the 11 Israeli athletes and coaches who were killed at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich.

the '72 Munich Olympic Games. one nations greatest athletes who were there one day are completely gone the next against their will. in my opinion, at every Summer Olympics, there should be a manditory moment of rememberance for the '72 Israeli olympic team.
Still saddened that the chose to not honor the 11 slain Israeli athletes tonight - without "community" what good is Olympic spirit?
brings the world together? Pah! Lebanese Olympic Team Demands Barrier Separation From Israeli Squad
I am so looking forward to Shabbat at 6:30 at the UJC tonight. We will remember the martyred Israeli Olympic athletes and pray for loving healing for this broken world. Shabbat shalom.
It was a busy day for Israeli Olympic widows Ankie Spitzer and Ilana Romano. Their a press conference was attended by AP, Reuters, AFP, NY Times, LA Times, Irish Times, and the Times of London (paywall) among others. A Toronto Star staff-ed, a Philadelphia Inquirer op-ed, and LA Times sports columnist Bill Plaschke also threw in their support for a minute of silence. Plaschke writes from London: Not once since that September day in 1972 has the IOC given the massacre’s survivors the honor or comfort of even one second of solemnity during the important and symbolic opening night. After four decades, two widows have been sadly reduced to begging for it . . . I’ll be standing. I’ll be silent. And for that entire minute, I’ll be noting the shame that will surround Rogge as he speaks of the Olympic spirit while clearly violating it.

It still surprises me, that given all the facts, people still stand against the Israelis. MI5, Scotland yard and the Israeli secret service, are all expecting some sort of attack on the Israeli Olympic team, from guess who.the Iranians. This years Olympics also marks the 40 year anniversary of the Munich attacks, in which, you guessed it, the Iranian terror forces killed several Israeli athletes. It concerns me that there are a growing number of people who support the Iranian attacks, then roar in offence when the Israelis react, and call Israel an "aggressive" nation. If you lived in a house surrounded by people in other houses that hate you, that would bomb your car, burn your vegetable patch, harass your children and all because they don't like your beliefs, wouldn't you react? The turmoil stems from the whole Palestinian issue, but historically, Palastine was never a country, it was an area of land, known as Palastine. For example. The Great Dividing Ranges, are only a set of mountains, not a county. ...
The Munich Massacre was a terrorist attack during the 1972 Olympic Games. Eight Palestinian terrorists killed two members of the Israeli Olympic team and then took nine others hostage. The situation was ended by a huge gunfight that left five of the terrorists and all of the nine hostages dead.
On Sept. 5, 1972, a Palestinian terrorist group took 11 Israeli Olympic team members hostage. The standoff lasted 21 hours and ended with the death of all 11 hostages and a German police officer.

In the early morning of September 5, 1972, 8 heavily-armed Palestinians scaled the fence at the Olympic Village in Munich, Germany, and attacked the unarmed and undefended Israeli Olympic delegation which was asleep in their dormitory. 2 Israelis were murdered in the initial attack and 9 were taken hostage. A failed rescue attempt by German security forces 20 hours later resulted in the deaths of all the 9 Israeli hostages. The Olympic Games in England this summer will mark the 40th anniversary brutal massacre by Palestinian terrorists. The Israeli government and relatives of the slain Israelis have asked the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to observe one minute of silence at the opening in remembrance of these 11 Israelis murdered. The IOC has refused this simple request.
