Olympic Committee Rejects Call for Minute of Silence for Munich 11

A video by Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister, Danny Ayalon, calling on the International Olympic Committee to dedicate a minute of silence during the opening ceremony at this summer's London Olympic Games, in memory of the eleven Israeli athletes who were brutally murdered during the Munich Olympic Games in 1972. 

The International Olympic Committee said “no" to Minister Ayalon’s formal request for a minute of silence.

A public petition has been circulating and a Facebook Page has been created as well.

Sorry to hear that they turned it down. Hopefully public interest can get that changed.

I somehow suspect that if it were another country, it would be a no-brainer.
