Calendars of Western nations are littered with bloody, murderous Islamic anniversaries now, where there were none (or they were rare at worst) some twenty years ago, save for the jihad against the Jews, which has been ongoing for the past 1,400 years.
Munich, the birth of international jihad-terrorism and Western appeasement.
Eleven Israelis and one German police officer died in the Munich massacre of 1972, when Palestinian terrorists [tortured, mutilated, and murdered] Jewish athletes hostage at the Olympics. Now, government documents suggest that Germany maintained secret contacts with the organizers of the attack for years afterward and appeased the Palestinians to prevent further bloodshed on German soil.

Germany, true to its ideological roots.
The attack at the Olympic Village stands as one of sports’ most horrifying episodes. The eight terrorists, representing a branch of the Palestine Liberation Organization, breached the apartments where the Israeli athletes were staying before dawn on Sept. 5, 1972. That began an international nightmare that lasted more than 20 hours and ended with a disastrous failed rescue attempt.
Ms. Spitzer, whose husband, Andre, was a fencing coach at the Munich Games and died in the attack, first described the extent of the cruelty during an interview for the coming film “Munich 1972 & Beyond, explained that she and the family members of the other victims only learned the details of how the victims were treated 20 years after the tragedy, when German authorities released hundreds of pages of reports they previously denied existed.
Among the most jarring details are these: The Israeli Olympic team members were beaten and, in at least one case, castrated. (NY Times)
The German authorities knew. They always knew. And still the German government released the savage jihadis just a couple of months after the massacre.
Those chickens are coming home to roost for Germany.
Tears, anger as Munich Olympic massacre memorial opens
Times of India, September 6, 2017:
MUNICH: Widows and children of 11 Israeli Olympic team members murdered during the 1972 Games in Munich unveiled a memorial to the victims at an emotional ceremony on Wednesday.
The presidents of Germany and Israel, Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Reuven Rivlin, joined the inauguration of what they called an “overdue” tribute to the team 45 years after their brutal massacre by the radical Palestinian Black September group.
The 2.3 million euro ($2.7-million) memorial entitled Einschnitt (Incision) on the grounds of Munich’s Olympic Park features black-and-white photographs of the 11 Israeli victims and a West German police officer killed in a botched raid.
Family members, many fighting back tears, gently lowered a black drape from each of the pictures showing the men in their prime. A Bavarian orchestra played the Israeli national anthem.
Ilana Romano, widow of murdered weightlifter Yossef Romano, told a ceremony including current IOC President Thomas Bach that the team had been “happy and full of pride” to represent Israel at the Munich Games and had “returned home in coffins”.
Romano said a decades-long drive by family members to see a memorial built in Munich had long been met with “anti-Semitism and a lack of compassion”. She called it “very moving” to see it finally completed.
The 1972 Munich Games had been meant to showcase the new face of Germany nearly three decades after World War II.
Black September gunmen took advantage of light security to break into the Israeli team’s flat at the Olympic village, immediately killing two of the athletes and taking nine others hostage to demand the release of 232 Palestinian prisoners.
A bungled rescue operation resulted in all the hostages being killed along with a West German policeman and five of the eight hostage-takers.
The news sent shock waves through Germany just 27 years after the Holocaust and opened a deep rift with Israel.
Rivlin noted that many of the victims had themselves been the children of Holocaust survivors and had come to Munich in a spirit of reconciliation.
He said the international community owed it to their memory to demonstrate resolve against terrorism.
“Forty-five years after the massacre, international terror still threatens innocent victims,” he said.
“The memorial we are inaugurating today must send a message to the whole world: we must not yield to terror… whether in Barcelona, in London, in Paris, in Berlin, in Jerusalem or in any other place.”
