THE GAMES MUST GO ON :

Israelis Remember Victims of 1972 Olympics Massacre (Patrick Vignal , August 11, 2002, Reuters)
Relatives of the 11 Israelis killed at the 1972 Olympics choked back tears in a memorial service Sunday near the scene of a crime that shocked the world.

"Time, they say, heals every wound but the scars will remain forever," Israel's ambassador to Germany Shimon Stein told 25 family members of the victims of the massacre standing in the rain.


Why is it do you suppose that the Europeans feel compelled to try and prosecute an Augusto Pinochet for the human rights violations of his government but support the political aspirations of Yasar Arrafat and the PLO, who were responsible for such horrors as The Munich Massacre?
