The first full account, based on access to key players who have never before spoken, of the Munich Massacre and the Israeli response–a lethal, top secret, thirty-year-long antiterrorism campaign to track down the killers. 1972. The Munich Olympics. Palestinian members of the Black September group murder eleven Israeli athletes. Nine hundred million people watch the crisis unfold on television, witnessing a tragedy that inaugurates the modern age of terror and remains a scar on the collective conscience of the world. Back in Israel, Prime Minister Golda Meir vows to track down those responsible and, in Menachem Begin’s words, “run these criminals and murderers off the face of the earth.” A secret Mossad unit, code named Caesarea, is mobilized, a list of targets drawn up. Thus begins the Israeli response–a mission that unfolds not over months but over decades. The Mossad has never spoken about this operation. No one has known the real story. Until now. Award-winning journalist Aaron Klein’s incisive and riveting account tells for the first time the full story of Munich and the Israeli counterterrorism operation it spawned. With unprecedented access to Mossad agents and an unparalleled knowledge of Israeli intelligence, Klein peels back the layers of myth and misinformation that have permeated previous books, films, and magazine articles about the “shadow war” against Black September and other terrorist groups. Spycraft, secret diplomacy, and fierce detective work abound in a story with more drama than any fictional thriller. Burning questions are at last answered, including who was killed and who was not, how it was done, which targets were hit and which were missed. Truths are revealed: the degree to which the Mossad targeted nonaffiliated Black September terrorists for assassination, the length and full scope of the operation (far greater than previously suspected), retributive acts against Israel, and much more. Finally, Klein shows that the Israeli response to Munich was not simply about revenge, as is popularly believed. By illuminating the tactical and strategic purposes of the Israeli operation, Striking Back allows us to draw profoundly relevant lessons from one of the most important counterterrorism campaigns in history.

At 4:30 a.m. 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 hostages to Munich’s 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 more than two decades? Reeves takes on a catastrophe that permanently shifted the political spectrum with a fast-paced narrative that covers the events detail by detail. Based on years of exhaustive research, One Day in September is the definitive account of one of the most devastating and politically explosive tragedies of the late twentieth century, one that set the tone for nearly thirty years of renewed conflict in the Middle East.

Few terrorists have been as internationally notorious - or as deadly as "The Red Prince." That was the nickname of Ali Hassan Salameh, a Palestinian who oversaw the Black September Organization from 1970 until his murder by car bomb in 1979. Salameh masterminded the 1972 hijacking of Sabena flight 572 to Tel Aviv, killing 27 tourists at Israel's Lod airport, and the murder of the Israeli athletes at the Olympic Games in Munich. In 1973, he organized the murder of the American and Saudi ambassadors in Sudan. The Red Prince's story is also that of General Aharon "Arale" Yariv, Golda Meir's choice to run Israel's counterterrorism response, and of Zvi Zamir, the head of the Mossad, Israel's intelligence unit. As this fascinating true cat-and-mouse story evolves, Zamir and Yariv orchestrate a series of daring cross-border assassinations, picking off Black September members one by one, chasing down Salameh until a final reckoning in Beirut. MUNICH does more than catalog the awful crimes of a terrorist, and Israel's search for a way to end his bloody reign: it authoritatively recounts the history of one of the central conflicts of our time - the Palestinian-Israeli struggle.

Nothing had prepared Israeli fencer Dan Alon for what he would face when he finally qualified and made it to the Munich Olympics. Despite the years of preparation, the training and the dedication, he could not have known how a single Black September day would shatter his dreams and fracture his life. Surviving the Munich Massacre was the beginning of Dan's 40-year struggle to understand why he was spared, why his was not among the mangled remains of murdered Israeli Olympic athletes left on the tarmac at Feldenfurstenbruck Airport. After years of suffering, Dan found that telling his tale freed him to rejoin the living. This is that story, a story of courage, of hope, and, ultimately a story of love. This is Dan Alon's Munich Memoir.

Our worst fears have been realized tonight. They've now said that there were eleven hostages. Two were killed in their rooms yesterday morning, nine were killed at the airport tonight. They're all gone." - Newscaster Jim McKay At 10:00 a.m. on September 12, 1972, Prime Minister Golda Meir appeared before a special session of the Knesset, the Israeli parliament. Wasting no time, the austere, chain-smoking grandmother addressed a full house of 120 members. "I want to share my plans with you," she said. 'I've decided to pursue each and every one of them. Not one of the people involved in any way will be walking around on this earth for much longer. We will chase them to the last." These determined and resolute words were spoken in reference to the surviving operatives and planners of one of the most audacious terrorist attacks mounted against Israel since the founding of the nation in 1948. A week earlier, on September 5, 1972, 8 Palestinian terrorists belonging to the Black September faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) entered the Olympic Village in Munich, West Germany, and took 11 Israeli athletes and team members hostage. After a lengthy standoff and a bungled rescue operation, all 11 were killed. The key element of Golda Meir's speech was the sense of outrage felt by the Israeli people against an act that transgressed both the essential principles of the Olympic Games and the unwritten charter of the Israeli people, drawn up over less than three decades of uncertain existence. Israel was founded on little more than determination and religious and social cohesion, forged in a crucible of war against unequal odds and the fanatical resolve of all of its neighbors to see it destroyed. While today Israel is one of the most divisive political subjects across the world, the Munich Massacre and the Israeli operations in response all came about entirely because of the emotional power inherent in the Israeli-Arab conflict. The Munich Massacre: The History and Legacy of the Notorious Terrorist Attack on Israeli Athletes at the 1972 Summer Olympics looks at one of the most controversial events in sports history. Along with pictures and a bibliography, you will learn about the Munich Massacre like never before.

Three people living in Tel Aviv, Haifa, and Jerusalem embark on distinct journeys that converge at “the file”; their efforts to admit Palestine to the Olympics in the early twentieth century. Their pivotal roles in history have been purposely omitted from official record, kept secret, or forgotten. Why? Because of the “Nazi Olympics” in 1936 in Berlin. And because of the death in 1972 of eleven Israeli Olympic athletes in the Munich Massacre. This book narrates the previously untold history of a Palestine Olympic Committee recognized before the creation of the State of Israel in 1948. It sheds light on some of the darkest events in sport history, exposing secretive relationships behind the doors of the Jerusalem YMCA, Nazi agitation, arrests, internments, and other intrigue in the complicated history of Israeli and Palestinian sport. The File breaks new ground at the intersection of sport and politics—illuminating the hope, tension, and horror of the 20s, 30s, and 40s, the creation of the State of Israel and the Palestinian refugees, and the resulting guerrilla attack at the Olympics in Munich in 1972—and reveals a handful of heroes whose impact on athletes and international sport competitions is still felt today. Consultant and researcher San Charles Haddad weaves a true and masterful tale of forgotten personalities in a conflict characterized by unabated venom, bringing hope and new questions in his wake. What will be the future of Israel and Palestine, and how might sport play a restorative role in the twenty-first century?

At the “Munich Massacre” during the summer Olympics in Munich, Germany in 1972, the Palestinian group, Black September, kidnapped and killed eleven Israeli athletes. This ushered in the “Age of Terror” according to declassified documents from the FBI, CIA, the State Department, and the Department of Defense. The eight members of Black September planned to trade the Israelis for 234 Palestinians being held prisoner in Israel. The attempt by German authorities to rescue the Israeli athletes culminated in the deaths of the nine remaining Israeli athletes and five of the members of Black September.William Smith, an undocumented loner with an obscure past from Wild Horse Canyon, Kentucky is recruited by a retired CIA agent, Simons Grebel to travel into Egypt, Syria, and Jordan to serve as the eyes and ears of his friend, Yitzhak Kahan, the Assistant Director of Mossad. While he is in Heathrow Airport in London, Bill Smith changes his plans and bribes two members of the airline staff in order to meet Khalisah Amtullah al-Saud and her brother Faisal al-Saud, members of the Saudi Arabian royal family who are returning home to Riyadh from Oxford University. Khalisah and Faisal invite Bill to visit them in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.Khalisah develops strong feelings for him and helps him uncover the money trail where her father, Prince Faisal, the Minister of Finance is sending funds to the extremist schools and mosques that adhere to the Wahhabi form of Islam. Bill Smith thwarts an attempt on the life of Prince Faisal by extremists and teaches Khalisah to drive with her brother accompanying them. She intends to enroll in medical school in Europe and leave Saudi Arabia since she cannot tolerate the social system there where women are almost invisible.Later, Bill meets Rhonda Gialetti, an actress from the U. S. that Prince Faisal is attracted to. She owes the IRS a large amount in back taxes and hopes that Faisal will help pay her debt. She takes a message out for Bill about Faisal's computer, a Honeywell model that is the first one to fit in a small room and to be mass marketed. She goes back to the U. S. and Prince Faisal follows her and Bill leaves Riyadh. Khalisah wants to go and Bill takes her with him.They travel to Blue Earth, Minnesota where Bill's fiancee, Rebecca Lundstrom is living with her mother. Khalisah meets Dr. Matthew Avery and he informs her that the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is opening a new medical school that year. She realizes that she will only be ninety minutes away from Bill Smith and she enrolls there. Prince Faisal insists that Rhonda Gialetti convert to Islam but is persuaded to marry her in a civil ceremony in the U. S. while visiting Khalisah.In the USSR, Grigori Mostorev, a sniper from WW II, is recruited by the arms merchant, Dmitri Sheshanoff, to eliminate Isaac Ben-Chaim, born Josef Storchev, in Leningrad. Ben-Chaim has set up a network of informants in and around Moscow. The most important intelligence for the Israelis concerns the type of arms systems the Arab states can buy from the Soviet Union. Anwar Al-Sadat, the President of Egypt, wants the latest fighter planes from the USSR but President Leonid Brezhnev will not sell them to him, so Sadat buys SAMS instead.Sadat continues the War of Attrition against Israel but he builds up the Egyptian Army to retake the Sinai Peninsula occupied by the Israeli Army in the Six Day War in 1967. Grigori Mostorev fails to kill Ben-Chaim who disappears, leaving Bill Smith to take over for him. Bill Smith marries Rebecca Lundstrom and moves to Helsinki, Finland, close to the Soviet Union to run Ben-Chaim's network.

In the early hours of 5 September 1972 the perimeter fence surrounding the Olympic Village in Munich was scaled by terrorists. Their target was the temporary home of the Israeli Olympic team, and within 24 hours seventeen men were dead: eleven Israelis, five terrorists and a German policeman. The attack by Black September, an ultra-violent faction of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, was seen on television by more than 900 million viewers. The world watched as Jews suffered again on German soil. Yet despite the immediate attention given to the disaster crucial questions went unanswered. Why did so many die? Any why have the German officials covered up details of the massacre? Based largely on exhaustive investigations for the film One Day in September, this book is the definitive account of the tragedy. With the help of previously secret documents, photographs and dozens of interviews, it reconstructs the tension of the day - and exposes the full extent of the Israeli 'Wrath of God' revenge mission, which over the next twenty years saw Israeli agents systematically murder their was across Europe and the Middle East. One Day in September is the most compelling account yet written of events in Munich, of the devastating impact the attack had on the relatives of terrorists and athletes alike - and of the long shadow the massacre still casts over the modern world.

Excerpt: The Munich massacre is a common reference name for an attack that occurred during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Bavaria, in southern West Germany, when 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team were taken hostage and eventually killed, along with a German police officer, by the Palestinian group Black September. Shortly after the crisis began, they demanded the release of 234 prisoners held in Israeli jails, and the release of the founders (Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof) of the German Red Army Faction, who were held in German prisons. Black September called the operation "Ikrit and Biram," after two Christian Palestinian villages whose inhabitants were expelled by the Haganah in 1948. The attackers were apparently given logistical assistance by German neo-Nazis. Five of the eight members of Black September were killed by police officers during a failed rescue attempt. The three surviving assassins were captured, but later released by West Germany following the hijacking by Black September of a Lufthansa airliner. Israel responded to the killers' release with Operation Spring of Youth and Operation Wrath of God, during which Israeli intelligence and special forces systematically tracked down and killed Palestinians suspected of involvement in the massacre. At the time of the hostage-taking, the 1972 Munich Olympic Games were well into their second week. The West German Olympic Organizing Committee had encouraged an...
