2012 Olympics of Shame: Israel Fears Iranian Agents to Carry Out 'Anniversary Attack'
Iranian agents are planning an attack against Israeli athletes at this summer's Olympic games in London, Israeli officials fear.
Concerns have only grown after an attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria last week that left five dead and 32 wounded. Israel has blamed Iranian-backed Hezbollah for the attack. This summer is the 40th anniversary of the 1972 Munich Olympics, where Palestinian terrorists abducted and murdered Israeli athletes during the summer games.
At the same time, the Olympic Committee has reiterated its refusal to memorialize the 11 athletes killed at the 1972 games. Despite international pressure, Olympics officials will not agree to a minute of silence at the opening of the games.
There is wide speculation that the Olympic committee refuses to agree to a minute of silence out of fear that Arab countries and their allies will stage an Olympic walkout. What could be more embarrassing, after all, than reminding the world that Arab terrorism killed, and continues to kill, Jews around the world?
