... The best excuse Rogge has mustered [for refusing to hold a moment of silence commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Munich massacre of Israeli athletes] is that a commemoration wouldn't be appropriate. He apparently forgot about the moment of silence for the besieged city of Sarajevo at the start of the 1984 Winter Games.
And the moment of silence at the close of the 1996 Games for victims of the Centennial Park bombing. And Rogge has certainly forgotten the opening of the 2002 Salt Lake City Games.
A tattered American flag recovered from the World Trade Center on 9-11 was carried around the stadium. It was then raised as the official U.S. flag. ...

International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Jacques Rogge is a bigot, hypocrite, and supporter of terrorists. The "Palestinian" government is made up of two terrorist groups, the PLO/Fatah in Judea and Samaria, and Hamas in Gaza. Their athletes' mere presence at the Olympics is disgusting and an affront to civilized values. Yet, despite the hypocritical and contradictory evidence provided above, he thinks commemorating the savage murder of Israeli athletes by "Palestinians" linked to the PLO/Fatah and the current "Palestinian Authority" is "inappropriate?" Well, Forbes has evidence of what is really inappropriate: A bona fide picture of Rogge wearing an official, terrorist Palestinian Olympic shawl in 2010 while visiting the "Palestinian Authority," a terrorist group child of the Fatah and PLO terrorist groups:
Here's Forbes caption for Rogge's mugshot: "President of the International Olympic Committee Jacques Rogge pauses during a press conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2010. Rogge on Tuesday expressed concern over "obstacles" facing Palestinian athletes, and in veiled criticism of Israel said athletes should be granted free movement regardless of politics."
"Regardless of politics?!?!?!" But "Palestinian" terrorist politics are fine? Rogge is a politically-correct partisan, wanting to jump on the Jew-hate bandwagon so he gets lots of atta-boys from like-minded useless idiots -- the ones he rubs elbows with at expense international cocktail parties where limousine liberals can assuage their secret guilt about being rich and comfortable while the true, teeming, suffering masses of the earth wriggle in the dirt. I would venture Rogge harbors fear and wants to be on the "right" side of politics so some crazed Arab/Muslim terrorist doesn't blow him up, or to prevent himself from getting beheaded when the New World Caliphate takes over starting in Europe. But what are we to expect of the eternally corrupt and hypocritical Internal Olympic Committee? Their true nature is betrayed by their concrete actions. Again, SportingNews:
[The IOC] ...awarded Berlin the Olympics as Adolf Hitler was passing anti-Jewish laws.
It went to Moscow right after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. It partied in Beijing as dissidents were rounded up.
It has looked the other way as Iranian athletes refused to compete against Israelis. The Palestinian Authority sent a letter this week to Rogge, thanking him for opposing "Israel's attempts to exploit the Olympic games for propaganda purposes." ...
I guess he's gleeful for being congratulated by his terrorist friends. I know Rogge's heart is as cold as ice:
When Ankie Spitzer, widow of Andre Spitzer [Israeli athlete murdered at the 1972 games in Munich], stretched out her hands to Jacques Rogge, the International Olympic Committee president, and begged him to hold a minute's silence, he refused. "My hands are tied" he said. "No," Ankie replied: "Your hands are not tied. My husband's hands were tied, so were here his feet, when he was murdered. That was having your hands tied." ...
But as usual, the reasons behind burying the memory of murdered Jews are probably more concrete -- i.e., selling your soul for a couple of gold coins. From New Jersey On-Line:
... Actually, it's easy to understand anyone's actions when money is involved. For years, the IOC's refusal to commemorate the Munich 11 was assumed to be based on pressure from Arab nations, a huge financier of the Games. ESPN found the proof, in the form of minutes from a meeting of the 2000 Sydney planning committee, that said the IOC received boycott threats "from several Arab Olympic committees" if the Israeli dead were honored in any manner. ...
Well, that explains it.
Thanks for posting.
I know that no one will agree with me, but sports are inherently corrupt, especially on an international level.
For use later
Thanks all for your comments. A picture is worth... a thousand barrels of blood-drenched oil?
