Israel's President to Attend Opening of Munich Massacre Memorial in Germany

(i24News) Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said before departing for Germany on Tuesday to attend the inauguration of the memorial for the 11 Israeli athletes killed by Palestinian terrorists at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich: "45 years after the massacre, international terrorism continues to threaten and strike innocent civilians. There are still those who see the massacre of the [Israeli] sportsmen as an heroic act. There can be no apologizing for terror. Terror must be condemned unequivocally, everywhere. In Barcelona, in London, in Paris, in Berlin, in Jerusalem, everywhere. We, the international community, must stand united in the struggle against terror, determined to fight and defeat it."
