Minute of Silence for the Munich 11 Petition

The International Olympic Committee and Jacques Rogge, President of the IOC, offered a resounding “NO” last week to Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon’s formal request for a minute of silence. Regardless, in little over a month, due to your support, The Minute of Silence petition is close to 50,000 signatures. The IOC is paying attention.

JCC Rockland on behalf of the Munich 11 families will not take “NO” for an answer. Fast and forward is the direction that JCC Rockland; Danny Ayalon; Ankie Spitzer/the Munich 11 families and all our dedicated supporters are taking.

Please continue to spread the word about our petition: https://www.change.org/petitions/jacques-rogge-minute-of-silence-at-the-2012-london-olympics.

Regardless of their Religious or political affiliations, these men deserve to be honored, respected and remembered in the Olympic Stadium. Signatures are flowing in from all over the world, recently large numbers from London as we get closer to the Olympic Games, and a blogger for The New York Post wrote today, May 23, 2012 “William and Kate, just one minute, please” asking Prince William and Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge to sign.

In response to the “NO” Danny Ayalon’s office has started a facebook page called Just One Minute and a created a new YouTube video. http://youtu.be/fQcMR0rojQs and https://www.facebook.com/#!/justoneminute.org.uk

We are asking the IOC to reconsider their decision. They have 65 days to change their minds. Please continue to forward the petition.

Thank you for your support.
