PA should be sued for the Munich massacre

Reader comment on item: Spelling Out Israel Victory
in response to reader comment: Is Musilm hatred of Jews anti-semitism?

Dear Dr Pipes,

I consider Yasser Arafat the inventor of modern terrorism. The guy used to roam around with a gun on his shoulder. Fifty years ago around this time most of the world woke up to hear about the Muslim PLO's attack on Israeli athletes during Munich Olympics. Many athletes were murdered. That was Modern Terrorism 101 for most of the world and teh course was taught by Muslims.

We live in a convoluted world. For some reasons the families of the athletes sued Germany for a compensation. Recently Germany agreed to an increased amount of compensation for the families of the victims. This is good. It is good when victims get compensation. But who should pay the compensation?

Germany, Israel and the athlete's families should sue Palestinian Authority for compensation. It is a disgrace that an organization as committed to violence as the PA, gets funded by the UN. I think, if it is possible at all, UN should also be sued in the lawsuit. The compensation for Germany, Israel, and the athletes should come from the UN aid packages for the (so called) Palestine.
