They did the right thing in allowing a tribute to the victims of the 7/7 Attacks at last night's opening ceremony. They couldn't be bothered to do the right thing by the Munich 11 and have a moment of silence for them. If it were Americans or Germans or Britons or Mexicans or Brazilians or just about anyone else would this even be an issue? Would the IOC dare say no to a moment of silence. Deborah Lipstadt is right. Jewish blood is cheap.
Bob Costas did a mitzvah last night. This is what a mensch sounds like.
The actual day that is Tisha B'Av started last night and concluded tonight (it is being observed starting tonight through tomorrow night because when it coincides with Shabbat it is put off a day). It is the saddest day on the Jewish calendar and many calamities have befallen the Jewish People on it. This isn't a calamity, but it certainly qualifies as indignity. Was a moment of silence for athletes who came in the name of sport and camaraderie and friendship and peace really too much to ask?
So, yes, f*** the IOC and the horse they rode in on. They can be bothered to have other remembrances, but when it comes to dead Jews that's too much for them.
