The families of the eleven Israeli athletes brutally murdered by Palestinian terrorists in Munich in 1972 will stand during tonight’s opening speech at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Israel’s Minister of Sport Limor Livnat will join them as Jacques Rogge makes his opening address. J-Wire calls on all Australians to do the same as a symbolic gesture of support for the grieving families whose bid to have one minute’s silence was rejected by the IOC.

    Australians should stand at the Olympic Games opening Our family at home intend to pay our respect
    to remember these 11 Israeli atheletes.

    I will stand. But, being geographically challenged I do not know in which direction to stand, since I would like to turn my back to the speaker in contempt for their cowardly decision.
