About bloody time. It took 44 years too long.
Well done Brazil.

There are indication that Mahmoud Abbas participated in organizing this PLO terrorist act against Israeli athletes. He is also a Holocaust denier who in English claims that he wants human rights of poor Palestinians, while in Arabic he proclaims that two state solution is the first step of getting rid of all Jews.

As long as Islam ITSELF is a totalitarian, supremacist, apartheid and imperialistic IDEOLOGY of hate of ALL non-Muslims, there cannot be end ot terrorism or peace in the Middle East.

Yes, about time. I remember this tragic event. The US hustled Mark Spitz out of Munich, fearing he'd be targeted, too. Awful, scary times.

I have a Tom Wesselmann framed print of large foot on green background from the Chicago Museum of Art. We will never forget.

i remember it....

"I cannot explain to you how emotional I am and how much this means for us," Spitzer said. "We went through a lot. We always got a No (from the IOC) and this time we not only got a Yes but a big Yes."


TY David

Yes, the right thing to do and should have been done years ago.

It came to light recently that the Israeli athletes hadn't just been murdered by the Palestinian terrorists but had been tortured as well and one was castrated ....
