We must remember Munich

I've already cited an excellent Op Ed from yesterday's Australian but it would be remiss to fail to mention its editorial in the same edition -

We must remember Munich

THE International Olympic Committee's rejection of a proposal to mark the 40th anniversary of the Munich Olympic massacre with a minute's silence in London's opening ceremony is misjudged. The killing by Palestinian terrorists of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches at the 1972 Olympics was an attack not just on one member of the Olympic family but on all who believe that the Games is an institution that builds harmony and trust among nations.

It's unfortunate that we don't have unanimity in our media on this issue but that is all that can be expected when a media outlet is replete with anti-Israel acolytes. Their resultant silence is shameful.
