New Voices magazine has posted an article on the Munich massacre written in 1972 by David Twersky, z”l, my predecessor as NJJN editor, when he was a staff writer for the Jewish Student Press Service.
Remember, this is 1972:
How can we understand the sweep of the tide of history? Only this way: Black September has succeeded in its wild scheme. The world is polarized again, especially the Mideastern world. Peace will be missing from the marketplace conversation and from government planning. No one among the Israelis will talk about the rights of Palestinians as a people. And this is the greatest irony of all for the Palestinians. For only by working together with the Israelis will they achieve a just solution to their problem and ours. That their actions should serve to postpone this long awaited dream, sadly, makes no sense at all.
