Munich Olympic Massacre In Photos


========================================================
The 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Munich will always be remembered for the tragic terrorist attack that took the lives of eleven Israeli athletes and coaches as well as one West German policeman.

BLACK SEPTEMBER, a militant Palestinian group with ties to YASSER ARAFAT’s Fatah organization, was responsible, taking advantage of intentionally lax, almost non-existant security at the quarters of the athletes at the Olympic Village.

There are many fine sources to review the story in greater detail but, this being the very first day of the 2010 WORLD CUP in South Africa and considering the 2010 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championships just concluded in Germany recently coupled with all the people running around these days who seem to think HAMAS are a bunch of peaceniks and those who fire rockets at random into Israeli cities are a bunch of helpless victims…

A quick review of the Palestinians’ diplomatic and other skills at the 1972 Summer Olympic Games at Munich, in pictures :
