Palestinians honour planner of 1972 Olympics massacre

from Palestinian Media Watch:

On Sept. 5, 1972, eight members of the Palestinian terror organization Black September broke into the athletes’ village at the Munich Olympics. They kidnapped and ultimately murdered 11 Israeli athletes and coaches.

After Amin Al-Hindi, one of the senior planners of the terror operation, died this week, the Palestinian Authority glorified him and his terror attack.

At the time of the 1976 Olympics I was a vehicle technician attached to 2 RCHA (Royal Canadian Horse Artillery) in Petawawa which was tasked with VIP security.  The 1972 massacre of the Israeli team was never far from our  minds and we were determined that it should not be repeated. The idea that anyone, let alone the leader of a would-be state such as Abbas, would honour the murderous piece of human garbage who helped plan the attack that led to the slaughter of 11 unarmed athletes and one police officer is despicable to me. How can there be peace when Palestinian leaders and media glorify such behaviour?
