Muslims Barred IOC from Honoring Murdered Israelis
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
An Olympics official admitted that Muslim countries blocked the "One-Minute of Silence" campaign to honor the 11 murdered Israeli athletes, one of the widows said.
Ankie Spitzer, whose husband Andre was one of the athletes massacred in the Munich Games n 1972, told the European Jewish Press that Jacques Rogge, president of the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games, told her that his "hands were tied" by the admission of 46 Arab and Muslim members to the International Olympic Committee.
She replied, "My husband's hands were tied, not yours."
