The New York Times posted this report earlier today regarding the International Olympic Committee not recognizing the 11 Isrealie athletes that were killed by terrorists in 1972's Munich Games. They have refused to offer up a moment of silence to remember the athletes at the upcoming British Olympic Game Opening Ceremonies. This is clearly a sign of arrogance by the I.O.C and should be a questioned as to ask why are they burying their heads in the sand and not remembering this tradgic event through a moment of silence. This is clearly not condeming the event but promoting the fact that it could happen again if we don't work together to stop terrorism. This is like saying the the Holocaust never happened or that
9/11 was simply something we should just forget. Silence=Death and by not conducting a
moment of silence at the upcoming British Olympic Games we are not fighting and possibly even sending out a message of blind sidedness by not remembering the horror terrorism caused at Munich in 1972. We must not forget and encourage the IOC to simply offer up one minute of silence at the beginning of the upcoming games. We are doomed to repeat history if we don't remember the horrors that terrorism has left behind. Urge the IOC to offer up a moment of silence and bring the world together to stop the dangers of terrorism worldwide.
