While the IOC won’t honor the 11 Israelis murdered at the 1972 Munich Olympics during the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics with a moment of silence this weekend, Bob Costas will. Costas has called the IOC’s decision “baffling” and “insensitive”.
Costas will be hosting NBC’s coverage of the opening ceremonies as he has for the past twenty years. IOC President Jacques Rogge has said the opening ceremonies are not the appropriate venue to honor the slain Israeli athletes and coaches. Rogge did participate in a ceremony honoring the Israeli athletes at the Olympic village in London today. But if honoring the Israelis is appropriate in the Olympic village then why isn’t it appropriate when the whole world is watching?
Like the UN, the IOC sucks up to the Arab/Muslim bloc and is afraid of offending its sensibilities. As I wrote here a couple of months ago, “The truth of the matter is that most of the Arab/Muslim bloc is delighted the Israelis were murdered forty years ago and would probably celebrate if the entire Israeli delegation were to be slaughtered again this summer.”
Bravo to Bob Costas for having the basic human decency to remember.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
