Washington, DC (WIBX) – Members of Congress stood on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to remember the 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team killed by Palestinian militants during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich Germany.  New York Congressman Richard Hanna, (CD-22) joined the chorus of calls to the International Olympic Committee to have a moment of silence at the opening games in London tomorrow.

Our Fox News affiliate reported the following statement was given at the event by Hanna, “The Olympics are supposed to stand for peace and international fraternity. I’m saddened and dissapointed in the International Committee’s decision to once again deny a formal moment of silence to honor the victims, their families, their loved ones.” According to Fox News, the IOC says the opening ceremonies are not an appropriate place to remember the dead.
