Jewish Blood Is Cheap
The real reason the Olympic Committee refuses to commemorate the Israeli athletes murdered in Munich

”Why the IOC refusal? The Olympic Committee’s official explanation is that the games are apolitical. The
families were repeatedly told by long-time IOC President Juan Samaranch that the Olympic movement
avoided political issues. He seemed to have forgotten that at the 1996 opening ceremony he spoke about
the Bosnian war. Politics were also present at the 2002 games, which opened with a minute of silence
for the victims of 9/11.
The families have also been told that a commemoration of this sort was inappropriate at the opening of
such a celebratory event. However, the IOC has memorialized other athletes who died “in the line of
duty.” At the 2010 winter games, for example, there was a moment of silence to commemorate an
athlete who died in a training accident.”
