Schule nach Organsiator des Olympia-Massakers benannt

munich„The Palestinian Authority has dedicated a new school to the mastermind of the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported Tuesday. A school in the West Bank city of Tulkarem has been named ‚the Martyr Salah Khalaf School‘ in memory of the leader of the Black September terrorist group. Khalaf, who was also known as Abu Iyad, planned the attack on the Israeli Olympic compound at the 1972 Munich Olympics, during which 11 Israeli athletes and coaches were tortured and killed. Khalaf also had a role in the 1973 takeover of the American embassy in Khartoum, Sudan, which ended in the murder of two American diplomats and a Belgian envoy.

The cornerstone of the school was laid last month, when District Governor Issam Abu Bakr ‚emphasized the importance of the project of building the school named after Martyr Salah Khalaf, in order to commemorate the memory of this great national fighter,‘ Al-Hayyat Al-Jadida, the official PA newspaper, reported. Other PA officials attending the ceremony included Tulkarem Mayor Iyad al-Jallad and Salam al-Taher, head of the Tulkarem Education Directorate, part of the PA Ministry of Education. This is the fourth school dedicated to the memory of Khalaf; the three others are in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.“ (Bericht auf The Tower: „Palestinian Authority Names School After Planner of Munich Olympics Massacre“)
