Silencing truth, By Debbie Schlussel

Excerpts:


The bloody Games must go on.

To date, the IOC refuses to allow any memorial to these athletes who gave their lives for this "holy" commercial extravaganza, which today might be called the BALCO Games (in honor of the steroid producer who seems to be unofficial chief sponsor).

At the 2000 Sydney Summer Games, IOC officials loudly disavowed any connection to a memorial to the slain Israeli athletes, and worse, denounced the memorial. At the 1996 Atlanta Games, the IOC refused to organize a commemorative ceremony for the slain athletes, lest the Olympics dare offend the new Palestinian Olympic Team. (Unlike the rest of the world, the IOC already recognizes "Palestine" as a state.)

"It's not the IOC's policy to stage special ceremonies," IOC director general Francois Carrard told USA Today.

Not surprisingly, that's a lie. At the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City, the IOC spent lavishly on an exorbitant Alvin Ailey choreographed dance tribute to memorialize the late Olympic Gold Medalist Florence Griffith "Flo-Jo" Joyner -- even though, unlike the murdered Israeli athletes, her death was not Olympic -- or even sports-related.

In contrast to the dead Israelis who still have no Olympic memorial or any Olympic recognition whatsoever, the IOC and the rest of the world consistently worships and sacrifices at the alter of the terrorists who murdered them.

Just months after he masterminded the murder of the Israeli athletes, Arafat and his Palestinian terrorists were rewarded with an official Palestinian mission to the United Nations. Terrorism pays.

As if it's not bad enough that there is now an official Olympic delegation for the contingent whose leader coordinated the murder of an entire delegation in 1972, the Olympics practices ethnic apartheid against the successors of that murdered delegation.

Because Arabic countries and the Palestinian contingent don't want the "embarrassment" of playing and possibly losing to Israeli teams, the IOC forces Israel to play in regional qualifying playoffs outside its region -- against European teams -- for virtually every sport in which it participates.

The bloody show must go on.

The Games have a history of pandering to the worst malefactors in the international "community," to the point of absurdity.

Today, it's Islamic terrorists. Yesterday, it was the Nazis.

In 1936, Jewish athletes were banned from the Games in deference to the Third Reich.

American Jewish athletes, like late track star and New York sports announcer Marty Glickman and Sam Stoller, were pulled from the U.S. 400-meter relay team at the Berlin Olympics rather than embarrass Hitler if they won. A concentration camp was being built contemporaneously with the "Nazi Olympics." Two days after the games, Capt. Wolfgang Fuerstner, a German army officer who built the Olympic village committed suicide. He was dismissed from the military for having Jewish blood, according to the Aug. 20, 1936 New York Times. American newspaper headlines, on display at Washington's U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, showed the true "Olympic spirit": "Olympics Leave Glow of Pride in the Reich."

Some things never change. Today the Games show the glow of Fatah, Islamic Jihad, Al-Qaida, and the butchers of the 1972 games. American athletes are warned against "exuberant" flag-waving and celebrations if they win medals. Syria -- where Jamil Al-Gashey, the only surviving terrorist of the 1972 massacre, lives freely and under government protection--has an official Olympic delegation. The bloody games must go on.
