Israel Petitions IOC for Moment of Silence at 2012 London Games
Yahoo Sports/AP – Israel asked the International Olympic Committee to honor the Israeli team members who were killed by Palestinian terrorists at the 1972 Munich Games.
Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said Tuesday he has sent a letter to the IOC. He wants the London Olympics to open with a minute’s silence honoring the 11 Israeli Olympic athletes and coaches slain by Palestinian terrorists. Israel is looking to draw attention to the attack as it marks the 40th anniversary this year.
