Olympic games in Munich.

The unbelievable, the never expected happend

A group of palestinian terrorists entered the olympic village and captured some israeli sportsmen. Two of them they shot to death.

And the bavarian police and the west german federal police proofed to be incompetent.

West german military was forbitten to liberate the israelis. Israeli anti terror commandos was not allowed to come into Germany to free the sportsmen.

At Fürstenfeldbruck an incompetend attempt of the bavarian police to liberate the sportsmen ended in a fiasco. All israelis died, all terrorists were killed, one munich police officer lost his life.


To be honest. Nobody had an idea, that such an assault could happen. Nobody had thought about this possibility. Nobody was trained for such moment. So it came to the disaster.


The lessons were learned worldwide. Anti Terror Commandos were formed. The GSG-9 in west german, the alpha teams in east germany.



Salut to the dead sportsmen. May it never happen again.
