His latest verbal hostility towards the Jewish State came in a response to proposal by Sebastian Coe, Chairman of the London Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games in 2012, that a ceremony be held to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972.Just like Steven Spielberg, alas.

The Israeli Embassy in London condemned the remarks, saying Livingstone is making cynical use of a historical tragedy to serve his political agenda.
