43 years ago today – Israeli athletes murdered in Munich by Palestinian terrorists

It was 43 years ago to the day when a group of armed terrorists from the radical Palestinian faction Black September snuck into the section of the Olympic Village housing the Israeli athletes and took 11 of them hostage during the Munich summer games.

After the Israeli government refused the terrorists’ demands to release jailed Palestinians, the athletes were then ushered to an airport, where German authorities staged a failed attempt to extricate the athletes.

All 11 Israeli hostages were killed, while a number of Black September gunmen died in gunfights with German police.
