4 decades later, the clear picture comes out about how Germany didn't help victims of Munich massacre

The Israeli government's released documents about the Munich massacre in 1972, showing more than ever how the German government at the time did nothing to actually help the Israeli athletes at the Olympic games:
The State Archive on Wednesday released 45 documents pertaining to the 1972 Munich Massacre of 11 Israeli Olympians, including one in which then-Mossad head Zvi Zamir complained that the German police "didn't make even a minimal effort to save human lives."

The documents were released to mark 40 years to the massacre, which took place on the night between September 5-6, 1972.
There's more over here:
The documents include statement by then-Mossad director Tzvi Zamir, who returned from Munich after the massacre and told Prime Minister Golda Meir and senior ministers of apathy and lack of professionalism displayed by German authorities.

“They didn't make even a minimal effort to save lives, didn't take even a minimal risk to save people, neither theirs nor ours, Zamir said, adding that Germany’s main interest was for the Olympics to continue. [...]

Zamir said that Germany made little effort to catch the terrorists or even determine how many there were as they left the Olympic Village after the massacre.

Germany said afterwards that it was not possible to prevent the attack even if it had advanced information of an attempt to gun down Israeli athletes.

Information revealed earlier this week showed that German authorities ignored advance knowledge of terrorist plots at the Games.

Three of the terrorists who later were arrested also were released in a deal following hijacking of a Lufthansa plane, prompting Foreign Minister Abba Eban to say, "To some degree, it is as if this passes a death sentence on other Israelis."

Der Spiegel reported Tuesday that its government documents reveal that that Germany appeased terrorists, with whom there were secret contacts for years, even after the massacre.
For the gazillionth time, I can't see why anyone must bother associating themselves with that horrific country by buying their imports. They did not ever actually change one bit since WW2 as that desecration of human life so clearly demonstrates. And the saddest part of all is that they're unlikely to apologize even now.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
