Munich Olymic Massacre

 

On the morning of September 5th 1972, in the middle of the Munich Olympics a group of Palestinian terrorist from the Palestinian Liberation Organization, took nine Israelis hostage. Two of the Israelis were killed trying to resist the hostage takers. The Palestinians then demanded the release of 252 Palestinian prisoners. The Germans were unable to implement a rescue plan while the terrorist and hostages were in the Olympic Village. After Israel refused to negotiate, the terrorist demanded to be flown to Cairo. When they arrived at the airport the German police tried to rescue the hostages, but the plan failed. Instead all of the hostages were killed by the terrorist. In subsequent years Israel killed almost everyone who had any part in the plan.
