BOB COSTAS - CLASS ACT
Those who have been following the matter of the International Olympic Committee's shameful decision not to commemorate the memory of the Munich Eleven - the Israeli Olympians murdered by Palestinian terrorists at the 1972 Munich Olympics - would be impressed by Bob Costas - a truly class act.
The IOC won't say it but there is only one reason why it won't allow one minute of silence to commemorate the massacre. Fear of recriminations from the lobby that supports the cause of the terrorism that was responsible for the massacre in the first place.
In this case, the silence of the IOC is shameful.
POSTSCRIPT: In case anyone's interested in who the perpetrators of the massacre were in bed with back in those days read how German right-wing activist Willi Voss, in an interview to Haaretz, describes his involvement in the killing of 11 Israeli Olympic athletes in 1972 here. It goes without saying that extremists on both the left and the right continue that relationship to this very day.
