A Moment of Silence for the Victims of the 1972 Munich Olympic Attacks:
Forty years ago terrorists shocked the world by murdering eleven Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. The International Olympics Committee (IOC) has a moral responsibility to keep remembrance alive as we approach this tragic anniversary, but has thus far refused to take action.
Together with Representatives Jerrold Nadler, Nita Lowey, Elliot L. Engel and Steve Israel, we’ve launched an online petition calling on the IOC to honor these innocent victims with a moment of silence during the opening ceremonies of this summer’s Olympic Games.
Please join us by adding your voice to our efforts. Your signature will be delivered to the IOC as part of this growing effort to honor those who lost their lives 40 years ago.
We must speak up so that our voices will be heard — not just in this City, but in London and around the globe.
Check out the petition at remembermunich.org

This was an infamous incident, certainly one worth remembering. So here’s a signal boost. (Worth noting: Scott Stringer, the guy who posted this, is Manhattan’s Borough President.)
