After Munich Olympics Massacre, Why Israel Did Not Turn The Other Cheek

By Dan Raviv

The massacre at the Munich Olympics in 1972 was a shock to the entire world — and certainly to Israel.  Palestinian terrorists killed two Israeli athletes in the Olympic Village, and then another nine were massacred later at a German airfield.

 

Many published accounts say the Mossad — Israel’s secret agency for foreign operations — then embarked on revenge: sending hit squads to Europe and Lebanon to kill any Palestinian involved in planning the Olympics attack.  But, our book Spies Against Armageddon reveals, it really was a tactical move: to step up a war against the PLO and its secret offshoot Black September.  Israel believed that European governments were not doing enough, so the Mossad was assigned to kill key Palestinian militants and demonstrate that Israel would not turn the other cheek.
