Canada has joined an international campaign urging a moment of silence
at the opening of the London Olympics to mark the 40th anniversary of
the killing of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Games. Canada's
House of Commons unanimously passed a motion to commemorate the tragic
event. Last month The IOC ruled out any possibility of a tribute to
the Israeli athletes at the opening ceremony, leaving Israeli
politicians fuming.
