Special To The Jewish Week

The London Olympics began with great hoopla two weeks ago. The spectacular opening had the Queen escorted by James Bond, wildly dancing nurses and flying Mary Poppins figures. It had Paul McCartney and J.K. Rowling, a Scottish village, a Shakespearean reading, and an Olympic torch that had traveled 8,000 miles in a boat. It had everything, except the one thing it should have had — a minute of silence for the 11 Israeli athletes murdered at the German Olympics 40 years ago.
