The International Olympic Committee are hypocrites and the games are a sham in pandering to the prejudices and hatreds of certain groups...

Black September Terrorist and Murderer, Munich 1972
If the IOC cannot acknowledge murdering Israeli athletes as being wrong, what really is the point?
And as Instapundit has noted it is not like they are even trying to move forward.  The International Olympic Committee continues to pander to the prejudices and hatreds of others, wishing the Israelis would just go away:
Still today the IOC stubbornly insists on the games’ apolitical nature, despite all evidence to the contrary. This is the reason it has refused to observe a minute of silence for the victims of the 1972 Munich massacre, despite the intense lobbying of President Obama, the German Bundestag, the Canadian national legislature, the Knesset and just about every Jewish congregation in the world. But the IOC doesn’t want to taint the games with the quotidian ugliness of politics. It would spoil the fun—and remind everyone of just how political the games are. (For some reason though it didn’t object to a tattered US flag from the World Trade Center appearing in the opening ceremony at the 2002 Salt Lake City winter games. Could it have anything to do with the nationality of the victims?)
What really is the point of these games if they cannot condemn or even recognize evil anymore?  If the Muslim countries boycotted over a moment of silence, well the IOC response should be "don't let the door hit you on the way out." That would be their decision, not the policy of the IOC.

Update:  Why the IOC won't mention the 1972 Olympics...  A must see film on how poor the response was at Munich.

  1. It's wrong to acknowledge that something horrible happened to israelis, because the joooos are evilll. It's always right to acknowledge the beautiful, wonderful multi-culti society and all the fantastic enrichment that muslims and africans has brought to european countries... Ours is such a degenerate society, and they do the jobs we won't do etc. etc. ad nauseam.
