Shenanigans of the XXX Olympiad

The 2012 Summer Olympic Games are nearly upon us. As was predicted by Ashley Browne in an earlier article on Galus Australis, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has refused requests to honour the victims of the 1972 Munich Massacre with a minute’s silence at the opening ceremony.

In the wake of this, The Jewish Community Council of Victoria (JCCV) and Zionist Council of Victoria (ZCV) have put a call out to the community this week to remember the murder of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. The JCCV has written to synagogues throughout Victoria asking for the athletes to be remembered in sermons this weekend and for a memorial prayer to be said.

However, commemorating the Munich victims will likely not be the only place where the IOC will be paying lip service but not delivering when it comes to treating Israelis with respect and dignity. Every Olympics, the IOC states there will be sanctions against any team that sit out events based on their opponents’ race, ethnicity or nationality. However, in all recent Summer Olympiads, national teams from states hostile to Israel have done just that, most noticeably Iran, who even now, immediately prior to the opening of the Games, openly maintains that their athletes will not compete against Israelis.  According to the Washington Post, the Iranian Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs, Mohammad Abbasi, informed the Islamic Republic News Agency that “not competing with Zionist athletes is one of the values and sources of pride of the Iranian people and its athletes.”

In addition to this proclamation, Iran has withdrawn Javad Mahjoob, a judoka in the 100kg class, from the Olympics, on the supposed grounds of a digestive infection. It’s no coincidence that Israel’s Arik Ze’evi – reigning European champion, and 2004 Olympic medallist – competes in this weight class. If Mahjoob were to have progressed through the tournament, he would likely have had to face the Israeli champion.

Meanwhile, while we may feel disgruntled with the IOC, it’s worth sparing a thought for the crackpot anti-Semites out there, who have their own problems with the Games of the XXX Olympiad. In an utterly bizarre conspiracy theory, some believe that the 2012 London Games are part of a Jewish plot to take over the world. The theory ties in the fact that the 2012 Olympic logo looks a bit like the word Zion, the opening ceremony falls on Tisha b’Av (well sort of), these are the 30th Games, which in Roman numerals is XXX (although I’m not sure how that’s connected to the Jews), and they are in London where Prince William is the main man (also not sure why they think that’s connected to the Jews, but they seem to think we’re going to declare him our Messiah). All the talk is that during the Games, there’s going to be the largest false flag attack in history. Of course, the people who believe in this idiocy also believe that everything from the 9/11 attacks to the terrorist bombings in Bulgaria last week were Zionist driven false flag operations.

You’d think that if we Zionists were able to pull off such an elaborate conspiracy, we’d also be able to get the IOC to institute a minute of silence for the Munich victims, not to mention getting the IOC to enforce its own rules when it comes to Iran’s participation (or non–participation as the case may be). I think it’s time our Learned Elders got their priorities in order.
