At this year’s Olympic games in London the IOC denied a moment of silence in the opening ceremony for the 11 Israelis that were killed in Germany. The absence of any acknowledgment of the Munich massacre became the source of much discontent in the Jewish community and Jewish American gold medalist Aly Raisman even spoke out against the failure to acknowledge the 11 Israeli victims.
Kosha Dillz, an American Israeli rapper, penned the song “Munich 72″ to not only remember the fallen athletes of Israel, but also illustrate a detailed description of how each terrorist was murdered. “Munich 72″ is intended to call attention to the evil deeds committed so that such an act of hatred may never happen again at an event celebrating world peace and healthy competition.
