The gripping true story of the Israeli-led hunt for the men responsible for the massacre of eleven Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972, which has inspired Steven Spielberg's forthcoming film epic 'Munich'. 'Avner' was an agent of only twenty-six when he was summoned out of relative obscurity to head a specialist Israeli team crack team and track down the men responsible for the massacre of eleven Israeli athletes at the Munch Olympics in 1972. Vengeance is the awesome account of this operation: it retells how the team set about their task with ruthless application, stalking their Palestinian targets and carrying out precisely timed executions. But it also reveals the other side of the coin: the terrible paradox that results when those in power, in a desperate bid against terrorism, resort to the very tactics of their enemies.… (mere)

Possibly as near to the truth that one can get, life as a special agent is not necessarily glamourous, and men do not take up this occupation for money. Many young men may dream of being a special agent, few will ever become one, and fewer will in the end derive satisfaction or fulfillment from such an occupation. An informative read, an unpleasant subject.

*Any political comments will be deleted. I don’t discuss political/religious/social issues on the Internet. So, don’t waste my time and yours. Want a political discussion? Head over to Twitter. Seriously, though.*

For us Greeks, the Olympic Games run in our blood. It is one more reason to be proud. All the citizens of the world associate the 15 days of peace and togetherness with strength, pride, honour. With images of the sacred ceremony of the Olympic Flame, the Olympic movement, the Flag of Peace with the circles of equality and solidarity.

But there are certain people who refuse to learn the meaning of peace, who refuse to respect anything that goes beyond their twisted notion of religion.

When I was ten, I watched a documentary dedicated to the events of the Munich Massacre that took place in the 1972 Olympics. Since that day, one of the strongest images I associate with the global celebration is a monster with a raised gun, standing on the balcony. A monster who didn’t even have the balls to uncover his face. One of the eight beasts that violated every sense of morality, peace and every basic principle that makes us human beings, causing the death of eleven Israeli athletes. It is the memory of a child beginning to understand that no, all is not well with the world. It is the memory of the Games that should have never continued but hey, let’s hear it for the show, right? Not to mention the incompetence (or unwillingness) of the German authorities. And my money is on the second option…

This book is a journey. The 2005 film by Steven Spielberg is a masterpiece. No written words, no movie can depict the horror, the violation, the flag of peace that was torn to pieces by the Black September monsters. But books and films are there for the younger generations.

Lest we forget…

‘’How can we possibly consider merely turning the other cheek to adversaries who are willing to commit crimes on the order of the Munich Massacre or 9/11 - or, for that matter, the Holocaust?’’

And that’s how simple it is... ( )

Diciamo che è vero un po' e non vero un po' u_u

In fondo se uno vuole informarsi su questa storia ci saranno altri libri, immagino... dei saggi più autorevoli, non come questo che è molto ma molto romanzato.

In ogni caso, chissenefrega della storia vera, è un ottima lettura, appassionante, intrigante e scorrevole. Anche se di parte >_>

Mi era piaciuto quando l'avevo letto per la prima volta anni fa e mi è piaciuto anche stavolta u_u ( )

A well written book that is by no means my favorite. I didn't enjoy is all that much simply because it took a long time to read. But this was written very well. ( )
