SUMMARY ´ One Day in September: The Full Story of the 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre and the Israeli Revenge Operation Wrath of God CHARACTERS Ë eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Simon Reeve Simon Reeve ´ 8 SUMMARY Hostages to Munichs little used Fürstenfeldbruck airfield where events went tragically awry Within minutes all of the Israeli athletes five of the terrorists and one German policeman were dead Why did the rescue mission fail so miserably And why were the reports compiled by the German authorities concealed from the public for than two decades Reeves takes on a catastrophe th. 45 Stars The inescapable conclusion of this extensive 30 year cover up is that German officers were unprepared to risk their lives for a group of Jews and that senior figures in successive German and Bavarian governments have been frightened to reveal the true story for fear that Germany would once again be accused of institutionalised anti Semitism Black September traces its messy origins back to the PLO Palestine Liberation Organisation naming itself after an ugly conflict with Jordan that the Palestinians later described as a black September This was initially a covert branch that could operate without the baggage or responsibility of the PLO a concept not too far away from what Mossad is to the country of Israel a scapegoat of sorts that tries to feign independence and take responsibility and attention away from the real people making the decisionsMany people today will be totally unaware of the fear and terror that the PLO and the Black September movement held over so many people and nations throughout the 1970s The hijacking of commercial airlines and other atrocious acts like political assassinations and the murdering of innocent civilians in airports or other public places Their brand of radicalism and terror was catnip for the media and ensured that they were never too far away from the headlinesOperation Irit and Biri m was the rather clunky name given to the planned action by the movement at the Munich Olympics It all began at the heart of the Olympic village where the first two victims met their death but the real drama eventually played out away from the camera when they all transferred to Furstenfeldbruck airport where the terrorists tried to fly out of the country but of course so much went so wrong for so many at the violent and tragic climaxWe see that naivety incompetence and recklessness played a huge part of both sides Zvi Zamir an Israeli expert on counter terrorism who was repeatedly ignored by the German authorities claimed that The Germans were useless Useless all the way Not only were the initial attempts at raiding the complex to free the hostages beamed live to millions around the globe but the terrorists were also watching it on their TV too A situation so ludicrous you couldn t make it up As Reeve shows this was only the start of the many disastrous calamities that were to mar this doomed rescue missionReeve builds the tension and anxiety nicely weighing up various sides of the saga like the war of words between the woefully incompetent Germans and then Israeli Prime Minster Golda Meir who proved to be stubbornly inflexible to the demands of the hostage takers The extent of Reeve s research is precise and detailed he mixes the documentation of the massacre with a mix of first hand accounts from the terrorists the media drawing from the likes of then ITN reporter Gerald Seymour and ABC news caster Peter Jennings and even documents from the Stasi files who were watching events unfold from close byNot only did the Munich police and the Bavarian government believe that five snipers was enough to tackle eight heavily armed trained terrorists but they also sent their men out without walkie talkies even though the unarmed security guards at the event had been issued with them They also had no bullet proof vests or steel helmets no telescopic sights or infra red technology to see in the dark There were also tactical mistakes to compound these failingsThe Munich police were warned explicitly before the games that the Palestinians might be planning an attack on the Olympics and yet the Germans still did nothing to increase security It is astonishing to think that the terrorists were able to fly into a major city in a major western nation during the then biggest sporting event yet to have taken place and get away with carrying ten hand grenades in their hand luggage as well as other weaponsOne of the most bizarre moments in this tragedy is when some random man falsely claims that all hostages had survived and had been rescued and the global media played their part in the lie by spreading it around the world and misinforming the victims family and friends Did no one in the media think that they should maybe check the validity of their sourcesAnd of course adding insult to injury to the families the inevitable cover up denials contradictions and lies began to emerge Thankfully their ability to construct a plausible alternative version of events was as doomed and incompetent as their botched rescue missionThe second part of this book is dedicated to the aftermath and the escalation of terrorism that would spill out of the Middle East and rip across continental Europe killing many innocent men women and children along the way We also get to hear many of the details of Meir and Israel s series of merciless revenge attacks If sympathy was on their side after the Munich then it wouldn t be for so long after they got the taste for blood Not only did they make a series of revenge attacks in Lebanon and Syria killing many innocent men women and children but then they ramped up with Operation Wrath of God This was a further campaign across Europe targeting various Palestinians from Cyprus to Italy and France to Norway and beyond they used bombs and bullets to show how seriously they were taking matters So the situation descended into outright warfare and as ever in such cases the biggest group of people to suffer were totally innocent bystanders as radicals on both sides grew obsessed in exacting revenge after revenge blind and hardened to the fact that they were only adding to and creating miseryThese were athletes who left 32 dependants behind including 14 children and seven widows so surely one of the most shocking facts concerning the aftermath and legacy of the massacre is the routine maltreatment and disrespect shown to the families of the victims Not only did the committee at Vancouver games in 1976 refuse to acknowledge the terrorists attacks with a minute s silence but various Olympic committees would continue to do their best to ignore the tragedy altogether The governments of Germany and Israel were eually if not contemptuous towards the victims and their appeals for acknowledgement Of course Israel s suspicious reluctance to get involved in pressing the German government for details rightly raised many uestions and suspicions of possible backroom deals for Israel to keep uiet and some believed that maybe the Germans had rewarded Israel for its silence The men died in Germany a second time when we tried to find out the truth said Ankie Spitzer the widow of one of the victims Of course the uickest and easiest way to make an unimaginably painful event even worse is to lie and deceive people about the true events and the Germans made a long and sustained effort to do just thatIt took twenty years and a TV interview played to millions of Germans in 1992 before a sympathetic source got in contact with one of the widows After denyinglying about having any information the truth was they had been hiding than 4 000 documents reports and files relating to the Munich massacre It was an immense government lie and cover up Other horrors soon leaked out such as the strong possibility that the Germans may well have killed some of the Israelis during the chaotic and fatal shootout So this was a fascinating horrific sad and yet hugely compelling piece of writing Reeve not only gives us a satisfying overview into the historical background of a horrendously complex and messy conflict but he also does a sound job of bringing the human cost to the fore with the many accounts from the victim s families The accounts from those who were there also adds gravity and credit to the book making this essential

SUMMARY ´ One Day in September: The Full Story of the 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre and the Israeli Revenge Operation Wrath of God CHARACTERS Ë eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Simon Reeve Simon Reeve ´ 8 SUMMARY At 430 am on September 5 1972 a band of Palestinian terrorists took eleven Israeli athletes and coaches hostage at the Summer Olympics in Munich More than 900 million viewers followed the chilling twenty hour event on television as German authorities desperately negotiated with the terrorists Finally late in the evening two helicopters bore the terrorists and their surviving. I ve had terrorism on my mind lately Now I know what you re going to say Thanks Matt for giving my day that little extra something Why don t you go ahead and pour hot coffee on my lap It s a hell of a thought to start a new year Still I can t help it The bombing of Metrojet 9268 The Paris attacks The San Bernardino massacre Every month it seems someone is blowing up or shooting someone else for vague political goals The list probably grew as I finished this sentence It s hard to ignore unless you make a concerted effort to avoid the news which of course is one of life s unremarked upon luxuriesI ll be the first to admit that the things I don t know about the current geopolitical climate in the Middle East could fill a stadium I do know however that in seeking answers it always helps to start by looking in the rear view This is especially true in the Middle East where history is not history it is not even past That s why I picked up Simon Reeve s One Day in September which tells the story of the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games This is actually the second time I ve read it the first time being in 2005 around the time that Steven Spielberg released Munich I decided on a reread because I didn t remember much of the book Having finished it became clear why I hadn t remembered This is a perfectly adeuate book but it doesn t move an inch beyond that The Munich Massacre is an intimate human scaled tragedy despite this I never connected to Reeve s book on any level besides the purely informational In roughly 250 briskly paced pages Reeve covers not only the terrorist event itself but the controversial and shadowy aftermath He begins with the initial takeover when eight members of Black September a faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization scaled a fence and snuck into the Olympic Village Two Israeli athletes died in this initial stage nine were taken hostage After this account Reeve briefly backtracks to give a history of the Black September organization which helps place this event in a larger geopolitical context The organization was named for a September 1970 incident in which King Hussein of Jordan expelled thousands of Palestinians Reeves then takes up the story in chronological fashion once again detailing the hostage negotiations the attempted rescue at F rstenfeldbruck Airport which resulted in 5 terrorists and all nine Israeli hostages being killed and the Israeli responses in Operation Wrath of God in which Mossad assassination suads killed people associated with the Munich attack and Operation Spring of Youth the 1973 attack on PLO targets in Beirut carried out by cross dressing members of the IDF If there is a theme early in the book it is of Germany s utter mishandling of the Black September takeover In an attempt to avoid looking like goose stepping Nazis security at the Olympics was pitiful The Germans attempted a minimalist presence with walkie talkie wielding police officers in non threatening light blue uniforms The failures only grow longer once we re beyond the nonexistent protection of the Olympic Village When negotiations began it was initially handled by an untrained officer who was basically freelancing The German government refused Israeli help despite the fact that they did not have an counterterrorist group capable of handling a military response Further the German military was constitutionally prohibited from lending any assistance while the setup of their Federal Republic meant that the incident was handled as a local Bavarian affair It was an epic cluster that as is pointed out several times once again ended with dead Jews outside Munich The best section of One Day in September is Reeve s handling of the rescue mission at F rstenfeldbruck He is unsparing in his criticism of German incompetence First as noted above Germany did not have a dedicated counterterrorism force Germany s GSG 9 was birthed by Ulrich Wegener who saw firsthand the botched rescue at F rstenfeldbruck Instead they plucked ordinary Munich policemen from the ranks to act as snipers These riflemen were poorly positioned they were too few in number somehow the men at the airport were not informed of the number of terrorists despite the fact that German authorities flew the terrorists to the airport via helicopter their rifles were inadeuate and they did not have radios Reeves also demonstrates that German police officers stationed in a nearby 727 which the terrorists thought would fly them to safety abandoned their posts Thus a central pillar of the German police response collapsed just moments before the terrorists and their hostages arrived One Day in September is at its liveliest when Reeves is trashing the inept German response and brushing aside German excuses as palpable nonsense The rest of the book unfortunately is not nearly so engaging Reeves wrote this in conjunction with a very good documentary of the same name At times you can tell Portions of One Day in September feel like nothing than a transcription of the documentary For instance when Reeves is introducing some of the Israeli hostages he tells the story of Andre and Ankie Spitzer In the documentary Ankie is interviewed about Andre and says Being the person that he was it was hard not to fall in love with him This works in a documentary because there is music there are images and you can hear the catch in Ankie s voice In a book though this uotation comes off almost glib a trite sophism A book reuires you to go deeper but Reeves never bothers You get only the barest idea of who the Israelis were He does even worse with the terrorists introducing their names only piecemeal throughout the narrative The documentary is emotionally effecting Not so the book Another thing that really bothered me were the gaps in the story A lot of people in this book remain shadows even 44 years later The German police snipers for example are presented as Sniper 1 Sniper 2 etc When Mossad agents kill an innocent man in Norway their names are not given either despite the fact that several of them were tried and convicted in courts of law Now I ve watched enough Homeland to understand that the world of terror and counter terror are cloaked in mystery Perhaps even all these years later some of these names are still being protected But if that s the case then I need to know Reeves needs to say that in the book Or else I m going to put the book down and start Googling If I have to do that as a reader then you ve lost me Clearly the Germans are very reticent in revealing what they know New information is just now coming to light In December 2015 the New York Times reported that one of the Israeli hostages had been castrated This corroborates contemporary mutilation claims made by the families but denied by the authorities One Day in September was published in 2000 Therefore it is in some ways sadly out of date There is a point in which Reeves calls the Munich Massacre the most visible terrorist attack in history It has unfortunately been repeatedly usurped Reeves obviously can t be blamed for that I did however expect from him In his book The New Jackals Reeves made one of the most strident pre 911 warnings about the danger posed by Osama Bin Laden It was a journalistic call to action Obliviously One Day in September is a different kind of book a straight history rather than a Cassandra call Still it rates as a minor disappointment As history it is curiously hollow The Munich Massacre is an unforgettable act this is a rather forgettable
