One of the 1972 Munich Olympics jihad murderers lived in West Berlin after the massacre



This AFP story posits that the West German authorities allowed this in order to prevent any further jihad attacks in West Germany. That’s possible. Cowardice and the desire to appease the “Palestinian” jihadis is pandemic today and was likely just as prevalent then as it is now.

“One of Munich terrorists lived in Berlin after 1972 attack – report,” AFP, September 18, 2022:

German police knew that one of the Palestinians who took Israeli athletes hostage during the 1972 Munich Olympics lived in Berlin for several years following the attack, the Suddeutsche Zeitung daily reported on Saturday.

On September 5, 1972, eight gunmen of the Palestinian terrorist group Black September stormed into the Israeli team’s flat at the Olympic village, shooting dead two and taking nine Israelis hostage. West German police responded with a bungled rescue operation in which all nine hostages were killed, along with five of the eight hostage-takers and a police officer.

The three remaining hostage-takers were captured, but released weeks later in an exchange when gunmen hijacked a Lufthansa plane on October 29, 1972, and demanded their release. Incensed by the chain of events, Israel subsequently launched the operation “Wrath of God” to hunt down the leaders of Black September.

On Saturday the German daily said that one of the three Palestinians who was released then lived for years in Berlin, citing a report in Munich police archives.

According to the report, the Munich police – in charge of investigating the attack – was told by the BKA federal police that the Palestinian in question was living in West Berlin and that he went to East Berlin almost daily, to work at the office of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

Following the release of the three hostage-takers, a theory made the rounds that then West Germany had facilitated the release in order to avoid any more operations by Palestinian militants on its territory….
