YNET: Israel Marks 40th Anniversary Of Munich Massacre In London
In shadow of Olympic Committee's refusal to hold moment of silence for 11 slain athletes during opening ceremony, Israelis hold modest ceremony, lay wreaths and read prayers
Associated Press, July 22, 2012
Complaining that the Olympic movement is still ignoring their pain, Israelis marked the 40th anniversary of the Munich massacre on Sunday with a modest service in the atrium of a London apartment block.
Prayers were read for the 11 murdered Israelis, wreaths were laid for them and a plaque unveiled about four miles (six kilometers) from the Olympic Stadium.
However, there will be no minute of silence for them at Friday's opening ceremony. (cont.)
I cannot think of too many more things which are as goyshe than wreaths!
All Jews should remember, and mourn the loss of the 11 Israeli athletes who were kidnapped and murdered during the 1972 Munich Olympics.
But, let's do so in a Jewish manner.
I can go on forever about how a "moment of silence" is hardy a Jewish practice. But, since most all of Israel is convinced that it is something Jewish, I will set that aside for now.
The main push for a moment of silence to be held at the Olympics themselves seems to be related to And since a "moment of silence" is an accepted, inoffensive practice of the goyim, Israel just assumed that if they were to act like goyim, then they would be accepted by the goyim.
Wrong again, for about the millionth time. Wake up!

The Jewish way to handle such matters, in addition to mourning and remembered the dead, is to execute justice against the perpetrators (pun intended).
"President" Abbas of the current, soon to be non-existent, "Palestinian Authority,*" was very much involved in the massacre. Yet, he still walks around freely.
So obviously, the Jewish practices associated with having our brothers and sisters murdered, have not been fully employed.
Worrying, yet again, about being accepted by the International Community (ie. the goyim), is not one of these practices, especially when it comes to pouting over the lack of equality within the most Hellenist enterprises on earth. We are NOT supposed to be Hellenistic. Remember the holiday of Hanukkah??
(Esser Agaroth maintains that there is no such thing as Palestinians, as "Palestine" is a made-up location name from the Romans.)
