…but refused a moment of silence for Israeli ones, thereby illustrating the Leftist European elite’s willingness to enable and justify the Palestinian jihad. “Jacques Rogge: Impartial to a Fault,” by Yori Yanover for theÂ Jewish Press, August 8 (thanks to JW):
This picture of IOC president Jacques Roggeâ€”who refused to permit the minute of silence in commemoration of the 11 Israeli athletes murdered by Palestinian thugs in Munichâ€”was published by Forbes in November of 2011. The caption below reads:
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.
They also shouldn’t be murdered in their dorms at the Olympic village, if at all possible.
Yes, that would be nice.
