Allen West: If we could forget Munich Olympics, we could forget 9-11
US Congressman Allen West offered a heartfelt response to recent news that the International Olympics Committee refused to schedule a moment of silence for the eleven Israeli athletes and coaches, as well as one West German police officer who were killed at the Munich Olympics 40 years ago.
West recalled watching the Munich Olympics at age eleven, feeling baffled by the horror that interrupted the usual competitive spirit of the prestigious games.
He said that he worries if we start to shirk the responsibilities we have to honor the dead on occasions such as this, what will happen 40 years from now, when someone refuses to honor the victims of 9-11. West in his own words, in response to a question asked during his July Townhall event in Pompano Beach.
