The International Olympic Committee is committing a hypocritical act of cowardice and bigotry by refusing to hold a minute of silence to honor the 11 Israeli athletes murdered ten Olympic Games ago. They held such a moment for an individual athlete killed in a car crash, but steadfastly refuse to to the right thing.

This petition requests that NBC publicly communicate their support for the Moment of Silence to the IOC. In fact, we would invite the network to broadcast public service announcements to that effect, starting as quickly as feasible and continuing through the start of the games.

To signers of this petition from outside the USA: I invite you to start similar petitions directed at the networks that will carry the games in your countries, too.

      The athletes were massacred during an Olympic event. Own it & just do the right thing for a change.

      40 years ago Palestinian TERRORISTS killed 11 Israeli athletes, and now Arab states are threatening the IOC over recognition of the event. You can't be bothered to allow a moment of silence because that would "interrupt" the spirit of the games? Either you are wimps quaking in your boots for fear the Arabs will send more TERRORISTS after you or you're just anti-Semites at heart. Either way I say SHAME ON YOU. Stand up to terror. Stand up to bigots. Do the right thing.

      With the recent tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, news stations have been talking about remembering the victims rather than the perpetrator. Let's put this into action and remember victims longer than the time it takes to make a sensational news story. Let's remember victims for more than a few days. It is my hope that other stations will do the same and override this sad decision by the IOC.

      Its only due to Arab threats that the 11 murdered athletes are being forgotten, and the huge Islamic pop of London.

      We must remember or we are doomed.
