“For the 46th anniversary of the Munich operation (i.e., terror attack, 11 murdered): Commander Martyr Salah Khalaf, Abu Iyad (i.e. terrorist, responsible for murder of more than 13), wrote in his book Palestinian Without an Identity: ‘The motive behind the Munich operation was the refusal of the Olympic Games Committee to include Palestinian athletes in the 1972 Olympics, claiming that in reality Palestine does not exist. The goal was to draw the world’s attention to the Palestinian cause and to demand the release of 200 Arab and foreign prisoners from the Israeli prisons.’”

The Munich Olympics massacre – a terrorist attack perpetrated by the Palestinian terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah, during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, in which they murdered 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team.

Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf) – PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat’s deputy, one of the founders of Fatah, and head of the terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah. Attacks he planned include the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972) and the murder of two American diplomats in Sudan (March 1, 1973).
