Islamic antisemitism, based on the Qur'an's designation of the Jews as the worst enemies of the Muslims (5:82), shows its ugly face at the London Olympics -- with a little help from dhimmi officials. "Muslims Barred IOC from Honoring Murdered Israelis," by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu for Israel National News, July 17 (thanks to Simone):
An Olympics official admitted that Muslim countries blocked the "One-Minute of Silence" campaign to honor the 11 murdered Israeli athletes, one of the widows said.
Ankie Spitzer, whose husband Andre was one of the athletes massacred in the Munich Games n 1972, told the European Jewish Press that Jacques Rogge, president of the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games, told her that his “hands were tied” by the admission of 46 Arab and Muslim members to the International Olympic Committee.
She replied, “My husband’s hands were tied, not yours.”...
Spitzer called the Olympics “a corrupt organization, led by greed rather than the Olympic spirit. She added, “The IOC’s refusal is pure discrimination – greed and anti-Semitism.”
