Israel Fears Terrorist Attack On Its Athletes During London Olympics
July 22, 2012 – I’ve been concerned that the London Olympics would be the target of an Iranian terror attack. It will be the 40th anniversary of the deadly Munich attack which killed 11 Israeli athletes and coaches by Palestinian terrorists on September 5, 1972. I remember that day very clearly.
I am convinced now, after hearing the reports from Mossad, Israel’s elite intelligence organization, that they are hunting Iranian-backed terrorists in Europe, that are believed to be planning an “anniversary” attack at the London Olympics.
According to Britain’s Sunday Times, In preparation for an Olympic terror assault, panic rooms for VIPs and spectators have been set up beneath London’s Olympic Stadium to protect them from being taken hostage or killed.
Scotland Yard and M15 have both raised the threat level against Israeli athletes and Israel’s elite security squad Shin Bet has also been sent to protect the 38 Israeli athletes who are living in the Athletes Village.
This is not a threat that is being taken lightly by anyone in the know.
Lets hope that the intelligence community can stay ahead of what has the very real potential of being an international tragedy.
What easier way could there possibly be to strike a deadly blow to the Israeli community than to execute a precision attack on the Olympic games in London. -JRoycroft
