As of July 31, 2012.
In 1972, eleven members of the Israeli athletic team were taken hostage by Palestinian terrorists from the Black September Organization during the Munich Olympic Games. They were all massacred. In the intervening years the International Olympic Committee had steadfastly refused to mention them during the opening ceremony of the games, as again happened this year in London.
In September 1970 King Hussein of Jordan moved to crush Palestinian terrorist organizations and restore his rule over the country; thousands died, the majority Palestinians.
