Should the London Olympics remember the 1972 Munich Holocaust? Do you?

America can't memorialize the 1972 Munich hostage killings, because that act of terrorism was not unlike our own airstrikes or special ops raids, against purported enemy combatants, off the field of combat, except we don't even try to kidnap them alive.   Of course the Israeli Olympic wrestlers and weightlifters killed in Munich in 1972 should be memorialized. But to call the deaths a massacre pretends the German police meant their ambush to kill everyone.* What happened at the 1972 Olympics is being recalled as the "Munich Massacre" but even the propagandists tweaking the Wikipedia entry don't have the temerity to doff the disclaimer that "massacre" is the informal name. Shall we recall what happened? On September 5, 1972, PLO terrorists infiltrated the Olympic village and tried to kidnap Israeli hostages to exchange for 234 Palestinians held by Israel. Two Israelis fought back and were killed. Next the eight gunman and their nine captives were led into an ambush at a military airfield. After a 1 & 1/2 hour gun battle on the tarmac, trapped under the helicopters by police snipers, the PLO killed four of their captives. A police investigation revealed the remaining five captives may have died in sniper crossfire. This detail is disputed, but a secret financial settlement was sought and reached with German authorities. So, was Munich a massacre or a botched hostage rescue? Do words matter? The Mossad's retaliatory murder of an innocent Moroccan waiter in Norway, mistaken for the Munich mastermind, is trivialized as the Lillehammer Affair. Proponents want an Olympic tribute to the Munich Massacre "so that it never happens again." Boy does that ever have a familiar ring to it. Look out for an Elie Wieselish re-tailoring of the original narrative, Steven Spielberg's Munich being only a recent example of a myth-makeover remembrance. To begin with, the PLO kidnappers were a faction of the PLO called the Black September Brigade, named after the Black September purge of the PLO from Jordan. This ouster, aided by the US and fought by Syria, was initiated by Israel's attack on the village of Karameh, in which the PLO suffered 200 killed, to the IDF's 28. Not a massacre because 150 PLO fighters were taken captive. Wikistorians taking liberties with translation are calling the PLO group "Black September", with the effect of obfuscating the event which preceded the Munich operation. The Munich raid to seize hostages was actually named "Operation Iqrit and Kafr Bir'im" after the Christian villages of Kafr Bir'im and Iqrit, ethnically cleansed by Israel in 1948. Villagers were granted right of return by Israel's supreme court, but overruled by the military. An attempt to return had been repulsed by police as recently as August 1972, as the Olympics began. Next, the identity of the Israeli athletes is always left incomplete. With the exception of the 18 year old Russian immigrant, all the Israeli hostages were IDF soldiers who'd participated in military acts against Palestine, Egypt, lebanon, Jordan, or Syria, and so are not exactly the innocent civilians of current

Uri Brodsky, Dubai Mossad assassins tied to Taglit-Birthright Israel

One of the 33 operatives which UAE investigators have tied to the January assassination of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai was apprehended in Poland. Suspected Mossad agent Uri Brodsky awaits extradition to Germany to account for a fake German passport issued to a "Michael Bodenheimer." Israel is naturally insisting that Brodsky be returned to Israel, where their "legal system is known throughout the world and can handle this issue." Brodsky claims to be a victim of mistaken identity, something about his fingerprints. Does it make you wonder about the first exonerated suspects who, safety [back] in Israel, were able to claim that whoever used their passports wasn't them? Meanwhile the credit cards used by the Israeli hit team have been traced to Payoneer, a financial facilitator for Taglit-Birthright pilgrims.

Dubai IDs al-Mabhouh death squad

STATE TERROR INC- If suddenly you recognize these faces among random people loitering about you, you're next, and maybe too late. (As usual Western media outlets are leaving the agents' AKAs unnamed, but they are: top: Evan Dennings, Gail Folliard, James Clarke, Jonathan Graham; middle: Michael Bodenheimer, Paul Keeley, Michael Barney; bottom: Peter Elvinger, Kevin Daveron, Melvyn Mildiner, Stephen Hodes) After reviewing hotel and airport surveillance records, authorities in Dubai today identified the 11-person death squad which assassinated Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh on January 20. The team converged on the UAE carrying European passports, 6 British, 3 Irish, 1 French and 1 German, and departed within hours of the hit. Their purported identities have been released to the respective intelligence agencies, awaiting corroboration about their common employer. Although a detailed account was given about the footage which documented the stakeout and ultimate murder, Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim did not reveal which team member wore the hotel staff disguise and which four ambushed Mabhouh in his room and strangled him. Peter Elvinger was the apparent mastermind behind the plot. UPDATE: Melvyn Adam Mildiner has been reached at his home in Israel, claims birthday is off by a couple days.

Money laundering record set in fine art

Curiously, you and I can't transfer $250.-- without the requisite agencies being notified, but an oligarch can spend $104.3 Million on Alberto Giacometti's Walking Man I and maintain anonymity. (For an iconic sculpture of a figure divested of possessions.) We can't take shampoo into the airport, but foreign intelligence operatives can cross borders and assassinate it-doesn't-matter-who without leaving a trace. Exactly whom is INTERPOL tracking or not tracking? For us there's a no-fly list. For the 007s and 000,000,007s there's a can-fly-with-impunity first class lounge.

Ahmadinejad’s Triangle of Wickedness

When Iranian particle physicist Masoud Ali Mohammadi was assassinated last week with a remote control bomb, Iran accused the west and its clandestine operatives, a consortium Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the "Triangle of Wickedness." There would be more discussion about what he meant, if western pundits weren't embarrassed by the expression's apt rebuke to Bush's "Axis of Evil." It defines Iran's own War on Terror. The GWOT is a war on Islam, pure and simple, because you can't have a war on an emotion. Although, terror certainly describes the military strategy of the offensive we've launched against Muslims. In truth, GWOT stand for Global War OF Terror. What are drones and covert hit squads but state sanctioned terrorism? If 9/11 was evil, we should agree that terrorizing millions as a result is pure wickedness. Even if another skyscraper attack loomed, I doubt that terrifies even most Americans. I wonder if a similar preponderance of the populations of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen or Somalia feel confident they will not be collateral to some drone attack or nighttime raid. Likewise, is anyone at all living in Lebanon, Palestine, Egypt or Sudan safe from kidnap by the intelligence services of Israel? What was Axis of Evil but a retread of the label we assigned to our WWII enemies? Axis was a perfectly appropriate geographic definition for the belligerent (say we) nations around which the rest of the world waged war. And since moral relativism, evil can rise nevermore above banal. Who didn't laugh when Bush sought to strike terror with the term? No doubt Axis of Evil came from the same Madison Avenue as War on Terror and Nine Eleven, tested on focus groups not meant to think to hard on them. Perhaps we've grown too sheepish to look for meaning in political slogans. "The Audacity of Hope" springs to mind. Pundits are certainly drawing a blank on Triangle of Wickedness. Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams took a crack at it, comparing axis and triangle as meaningless pith, proving that a cynical office humorist brings nothing to the table if it's not a conference table. He joked about losing something in the translation, but dismissed the "triangle" as the US, Israel and Miscellaneous. It's interesting that we're looking for that third angle to be a nation, even though the asymmetry of our war on terror allows that foes are not necessarily sovereign states. Ahmadinejad defined the third component of our wicked triumvirate as the clandestine extra-judicial branch; the not insignificant power wielded by the CIA, Mossad, military intelligence, and the unseemly work it sub-contracts. It may be that the translation of triangle failed Ahmadinejad. To me he's describing a trinity: the father, son and holy ghost. They serve each other, one of them invisibly, except for the evidence of its deeds. And don't you just love "wickedness?" It ascribes a motive much more human than evil, entirely unholy.

Israel launches new terrorist campaign against Iran

Israel is using hitmen to carry out political assassinations against Iranians according to US intelligence sources. Israeli terrorism is nothing new and has been used against Syrians and Lebanese, not to mention the Palestinians themselves. Why does it not receive any notice in the US media? The answer is simply that Israeli government terrorism is supported by the US government, too, and so these types of matters are just kept as quiet as possible. Israel launches covert war against Iran. Barack Obama, what do you have to say about this? Israeli terrorism has many more targets than the newspaper The Telegraph of the UK mentions in its report of the new campaign to target the Iranian nuclear scientists. Just like with targets of US State terrorism that Pentagon hitmen attack, all civilian collateral damage is considered just part of the act. The only real desire to limit the numbers of innocents hit is simply due to the embarrassment that it sometimes causes. Somehow a desire to keep those numbers down is supposed to excuse the nature of the hit? Both the US and Israeli governments want to carry out their terrorism against Iran on a much more massive scale, and the only thing that holds them back is that the Iranian government and Iranian people are not in as defenseless a situation as the Palestinians of Gaza are. It is much more a project on the scale of occupying Iraq and Afghanistan currently is. Otherwise.... Barack Obama in office is no guarantee that the Pentagon and the neocons will not actively go at Iran with full Obama support. We will probably begin to see more mentions of mysterious deaths in Iran, Israeli aggressions by air and missiles, and other similar buildups in the next months towards an eventual all out assault against the people of Iran. Once again it is the passive acceptance of these imperialist assaults by the American people that will enable people like Obama and Clinton to go ahead with launching yet more terrorist wars using 'our troops' and the troops of the Jewish State.
