The IOC should be ashamed of itself; it is being congratulated by the very same jihad outfit that authorised the murder of those 11 Israeli Jewish athletes in the first place. As reported by the 'Jerusalem Post''s indefatigable Khaled Abu Toameh.
'PA Thanks IOC For Refusing Munich Victims Memorial'.
'Olympic Committee rejects minute of silence at opening ceremony; PA Official: Palestinians [sic - Arab Muslims - CM] oppose Israeli attempt to exploit Games'.
"Israeli attempt to exploit games". Thus saith the Jew-hating Mohammedan. Let's all just forget about the fact that the PLO jihad terror raiders - the PLO being the direct forebear of the PA - broke the Olympic truce and desecrated the Games by murdering eleven Israeli Jewish Olympic athletes, right there in the Olympic Village in Munich, just forty years ago, eh? - CM
'The Palestinian Authority has thanked the international Olympic Committee for refusing to hold a minute of silence at Friday's opening ceremony in London to mark the 40th anniversary of the murder of 11 Israeli sportsmen at the 1972 Munich Games.
'Jibril Rajoub, head of the Palestinian Football Federation, sent a letter to IOC chairman Jacques Rogge thanking him for his position, the PA's official news agency, Wafa, reported.
'Sports is a bridge for love, connection and relaying peace between peoples.
Says the man whose fellow Arab Muslims took hostage and murdered eleven Israeli Jewish athletes in the Olympic Village; and who most assuredly regards those murderous Muslims as 'heroes'. One wishes that as he penned those words, the earth could have split open and swallowed him. - CM
"It should not be a factor for separation and spreading racism between peoples", Rajoub, a former PA security commander, wrote in his letter.
'Spreading racism'. Says the Jew-hating genocidal Mohammedan whose accursed Quran says all manner of vileness about Jews. One must assume that by 'spreading racism' he means 'directing the attention of the world's non-Muslims to the unpleasant reality of Mohammedan Jew-hatred and Mohammedan kuffar-hatred and Mohammedan murderousness. - CM
'Wafa said that he sent the letter to the IOC chairman on Tuesday.
If this is true, and if Chairman Rogge did in fact receive such a letter, from such a sender, then the proper response to that letter - had Mr Rogge and the non-Muslim members of the IOC even a shred of moral courage remaining, and even one tiny particle of moral intelligence - should have been (1) to forward it to the circular file directly, and (2) to notify all participating nations and the Opening Ceremony organisers that the minute's silence would be happening after all, and that all teams would be advised to lower their flags to half-mast during the silence. - CM
'A senior PA official in Remallah confirmed that Rajoub had sent the letter and said that the Palestinians [sic: that is, the shock troops of the Arab/ Muslim jihad against the Jews - CM] were opposed to "Israel's attempts to exploit the Olympic Games for propaganda purposes".
'A senior [Israeli] government official responded to the Palestinian [that is, the 'Palestinian' Arab Muslim - CM] letter by saying that "if the leadership of the PA is not willing to dissassociate itself from its terrorist past, and is unwilling to see the Munich massacre as a brutal act of terrorism, then in Israeli eyes there will be big questions regarding their true commitment to peace and reconciliation".
Understatement of the year. - CM
'Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon condemned the PA for terming as "racist" a moment of silence for the Israeli victims.
"No, the murder of Israelis because they are Israelis [that is: the Muslim murder of Jews because they are Jews - CM] is racist, not the request to dignify and honor them", Ayalon wrote on Facebook. "On the other hand, Palestinian Authority media refer to Munich terrorists as 'stars' whose path should be followed".
"Now, more than ever, there needs to be a minute [of] silence, not just to honor the eleven slain Israeli athletes, but also to demonstrate opposition to those who laud murderers as heroes and call on others to follow suit".
Yes. A minute's silence to honor those eleven murdered Jews - Jews murdered by Mohammedans because they were Jews - would have functioned also to honor all non-Muslims who are targeted by murderous Jihad because they are not Muslims, because they do not intend ever to become Muslims, and because they do not intend to be dhimmis crushed beneath the boot of Muslim overlords; and because in some cases, like the Israelis, their homelands have actively fought back against Jihad. - CM
