The London Olympics open marred by an omission, make that two omissions, the first being omission of a Moment of Silence, the second omission being omission of a country where all faiths meet, the Capitol of the world of religion, Israel and Jerusalem.

The BBC, British Broadcasting Corporation,  which holds the rights to broadcast the 2012 London Olympic games refuses to list Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on its official Olympics website, listing “East Jerusalem” as the capital of Palestine, a nation that does not exist.

For four decades the IOC, the International Olympic Committee refuses to set on to the Olympics official schedule a Moment of Silence for eleven Murdered Israeli Olympians slaughtered in cold blood by Palestinian terrorist group, Black September, 40 years ago at the Olympics in Munich despite please of American, Australian, Canadian and German parliaments. Black September were a breakoff group from the PLO, Palestine Liberation Organization. There have been other moments of Silence in the Olympics yet the International Olympic Committee refuses claiming no precedent. Difference with this Moment of Silence is the victims, athletes and coaches, were representing Israel. ONE of the victims, David Berger, was American. Berger is honored in Ohio with a Memorial recorded by the National Park Service.

The Olympic games started in 776BC, in Olympia, a rural sanctuary in the Peloponnesos, as part of a religious festival honoring Zeus, where Greeks sharing the same religious beliefs and speaking the same language, came to the Sanctuary of Zeus, to cheer on athletes, male citizens from across the Greek world. Zeus is the father of Greek gods and goddesses. The sanctuary was name after MountOlympos, the home of the greatest of gods and goddesses. The games expanded beyond the events of the ancient Olympic games, stopping for a period of 1503 years. The first modern Olympics took place in Greece- in 1896. Frenchman Baron Pierre de Coubertin presented the idea in 1894. The first Modern Winter Olympic game was held in Chamonix, France, in 1924. The five linked rings flag was introduced. The Olympic torch was inaugurated in 1932. Somehow, the words of the Olympic Oath introduced in 1920, written by de Coubertin, have been forgot, trodden on by political rhetoric and hate:

In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams.”

Remembering Murdered Israeli Olympians, ten Israelis and ONE AMERICAN:

Ze’ev Friedman, 28 – weightlifter

Yossef Gutfreund, 40 – wrestling referee

Eliezer Halfin, 24, – wrestler

Yossef Romano, 31 – weightlifter

David Berger, 28 – weightlifter, an American was flown home to Cleveland for burial.

Amitzur Shapira, 40 – track coach

Kehat Shorr, 53 – shooting coach

Mark Slavin, 18 – wrestler

Andre Spitzer, 27 – fencing coach

Yakov Springer, 51 – weightlifting judge

Moshe Weinberg, 33 – wrestling coach


It is one thing for the American Olympic Committee to not stand up for the memory of the murdered Olympians, it is another matter for the American Olympic Committee and the President of the United States of America to not stand up for a murdered American Olympian. Their memories live on.

Palestinians, willing to sabotage my homeland with unvetted, fabled damning twitters, blogs and Youtube moments, … Israel would not be. Jews may be turning the other cheek, Pastor Hagee’s alliance with Jews is allowing our culture stand tall amidst technological torpedoes targetingIsrael’s damnation. Answering David Brog’s question where are the Jews and why? The Holocaust has not taught the lesson well enough of who to trust and who not as learned too late by European Jews convincing themselves all the way in to the showers, that the bad was not too bad and good was going to come. For some, good came too late…. if Jews allow history to repeat itself, good will not come at all, David. ]
