#JustOneMinute Italian and French athletes protest IOC's 'moment of silence' refusal

Olympic athletes from Italy and France have staged protests at the Olympic games against the IOC's refusal to have a moment of silence at the opening ceremony in memory of the eleven Israeli athletes who were murdered 40 years ago in Munich (Hat Tip: Ricky G).
The IOC’s refusal to permit a minute’s silence for victims of the Munich terror attack 40 years ago has already provoked a protest from the Italian team, who staged a minute’s solidarity silence outside the Israeli team’s quarters.

Now a French swimmer has found another method of commemoration. Fabien Gilot, a member of the gold medal-winning 4 x 100 team raised his arm in triumph to reveal a tattoo in Hebrew reading: אני כלום בלעדיהם - in English: I am nothing without them.
We appreciate the sentiment. There are fundamental changes needed in the makeup of the IOC.

that tattoo was for his jewish grandfather, who survived the holocaust, married a french goy and destroyed his lineage anyway

the tat has nothing to do with the 11 and this guy could care less about them
