Palestinians Welcome IOC's Rejection of Moment of Silence

Mike L.

LONDON - The Palestinians are praising the International Olympic Committee's decision not to hold a moment of silence in memory of the 11 Israeli athletes murdered in the 1972 Munich Olympics in the London Games' opening ceremony, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Friday.

Jibril Rajoub, chairman of the Palestinian Olympic Committee, sent a thank you letter to IOC President President Jacques Rogge...

"Sport is a bridge for love, unification and for spreading peace among the nations," he wrote. "It must not be a cause for divisiveness and for the spreading of racism."


  1. Someone needs to tell the lousy Lebanese that ""It must not be a cause for divisiveness and for the spreading of racism."

    "Lebanese Olympic judo team refuses to practice next to Israelis
    Hosts accept coach’s demand, and separate the teams with makeshift barrier"


    1. Next they'll object to the name of their sport, for it sounding so close to, well you know... ;)

    2. Heh. Really though, the world should be up in arms about this shit. Olympic officials should send the racists packing home. What lesson is being taught by accommodating Jew haters?

    3. Yeah, it's absolutely appalling. Where are the self-proclaimed 'anti-racists' on this crap? In 'real life,' and online? Oh that's right, the online ones are too busy harassing Jews on places like Daily Kos, HuffPo, etc etc...

      That still leaves the rest, though. Shame.

    4. Stuff like this lays bare the untarnished truth about hating's socially acceptable again.
