Okay, time to play
Monday Tuesday Morning QB on Rudy’s kick-ass awesome speech last night at the RNC (which I’m very glad I watched).
Rudy made mention of the 1972 Munich Olympic massacre of the Israeli Olympic Team and the feckless response of the Germans in releasing the three arrested terrorists.
There’s two things Rudy seemed to overlook when mentioning this event which could have fit into his speech.
1) One of the members of the Israeli team was a dual US-Israeli citizen, weightlifter David Berger of Shaker Heights, Ohio.
2) After the attack, Israel took matters into her own hands, and (then) PM Golda Meir authorized the Mossad to go out, hunt down and liquidate those responsible for the attrocity. A task which the Mossad was very successful with.
I think that if Rudy could have tied in Berger’s citizenship, he could have possibly scored more “impact points”.
Similarly, if Rudy were to have mentioned how Israel went back on the offensive against the terrorists, and making an analogy to the US now, he could’ve hit (yet another) home run.
It’s not like Rudy’s speech really needed more home-runs in that speech of his.
