49 years ago today, Palestinian terrorists murdered 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
For the first time at the Olympics, an official ceremony was held in Tokyo to honor the victims.

“There it was, the essence of the terror agenda, right in front of our eyes for decades already, waiting to be re-discovered and finally understood.
The most important message of this manufactured Munich 1972 Olympic incident: it presaged and helped lay the foundation for the new essence of our counterfeit reality, culminating on 9/11 2001, bringing to life a monstrous myth.”
The Washington Post has published a moving article, “Russian Jews remember Israeli athletes murdered at 1972 Munich Olympic Games.”
Unfortunately, typical Zionist fashion it gets a few things wrong and provides a one-sided context for the tragedy.
Just 23 years before the Olympic incident, Israel had been created through ethnically cleansing much of the indigenous Palestinian population.
This had been accomplished through at least 33 massacres and was maintained in the years following by still more acts of ethnic cleansing and additional massacres. (These included areas from which the Munich kidnappers came).
The massacre prompted many European countries to establish permanent, professional, and immediately available counter-terrorism forces, or reorganize already existing units to such purpose.
The massacre also prompted prominent arms designers and manufacturers to produce new types of weapons more ‘suitable’ for “counter-terrorism”.

“Enough! Enough with being the scapegoat for Israel’s aggressive and frequently ill-conceived political moves.
Enough with being sacrificed on the altar of the Zionist State for the sake of increasing their worldwide legitimacy and increasing aliyah numbers. Enough!” –Jews to Zionism: Bye Bye
Five years before the Munich incident, Israel violently conquered even more Palestinian land (illegal under international law), pushing out another 325,000+ Palestinian men, women, and children, and killing at least 13,000 Arabs in all. About 800 Israelis died.
The violence continued, and beginning in 1968 Israeli forces repeatedly savaged 150 or more towns and villages in south Lebanon alone.
By the time of the Munich Olympics, Israel held hundreds of prisoners in its notorious prison system.
It is widely known, but rarely stated, that the goal of the Munich hostage-taking was not to kill them; it was to return the athletes to Israel in return for Israel returning its Palestinian prisoners.
Many of these prisoners were also young people, and, if we could have seen them, they might have looked very much like the Israeli athletes, minus the physical health. Israel is not known for its merciful treatment of those it dislikes.
When the Israeli government refused to consider an exchange, the German police, with the Mossad at hand, were pushed into an ill-planned rescue attempt in which some of the hostages (no one knows how many) were killed accidentally by the attackers, and a German policeman was also killed.
Israeli secret service agent Mike Harari, who played a major role in planning WRATH OF GOD, Mossad’s revenge attacks against Palestinian militants implicated in the 1972 Munich massacre of the country’s Olympics team, has died.
He was 87. Harari was also involved in planning Israel’s dramatic rescue of hostages held by militants in Entebbe (another false flag operation), Uganda in 1976.
