Danny Ayalon: Just One Minute

Hat Tip: My wonderful sister in law Francine from Houston, who is an active supporter of the state of Israel. This is the email she has received from the JCC [Jewish Community Center] Rockland along with the video from Israel's great foreign minister, Danny Ayalon.  Danny Ayalon is a truly good man.  His video is entitled 'Just One Minute' [asking for one minute of silence to remember the Munich 11 Israeli athletes who were massacred by Palestinian Islamic terrorists, 40 years ago, at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich]

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:
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. and!/

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.
