Filled Under:

MUNICH, MEMORY and the IOC

American Power blog roundup on the IOC rejection of a moment of silence for Israel's 1972 athletes.

See: "Munich and the Politics of the International Olympic Committee (IOC)."






In the above screenshot, Limor Livnat, Israel's Minister of Culture and Sport, bows her head in silence at Friday night's opening ceremony.

And it turns out the IOC allowed the commemoration of the 7/7 attacks, but nothing for the Jews, which some say is "the worst decision of the Opening Ceremony."

NBC didn't even play the 7/7 terrorism tribute on U.S. television, perhaps attempting to avoid the controversy, but click through for the video clip.
