From Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook at Palestinian Media Watch.
On Sept. 5, 1972, eight members of the Palestinian terror organization Black September broke into the athletes’ village at the Munich Olympics. They kidnapped and ultimately murdered 11 Israeli athletes and coaches.
After Amin Al-Hindi, one of the senior planners of the terror operation, died this week, the Palestinian Authority glorified him and his terror attack. The official PA daily described his participation in the Olympic massacre, saying he was “one of the stars who sparkled… at the sports stadium in Munich.” The attack itself was referred to as “just one of many shining stations” in his life.
The PA daily reports that Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad were at the funeral, where “a red carpet was laid out for the arrival of the body, and the military band played the final farewell melody.”
