House Republican Policy Committee Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA) remembered the 11 Israeli victims of the Munich Massacre of the 1972 Summer Olympics, saying:
"The Olympics is a wonderful opportunity for individuals from all nations to come together for friendly competition and fellowship. As athletes from all over the world compete in this year's Olympic Games, we are reminded of the senseless and brutal killing of 11 Israeli athletes and officials at the Summer Games in Munich 40 years ago.
"While the International Olympic Committee has not done nearly enough to commemorate this tragedy, during this Olympic season, Americans join our brothers and sisters in Israel in remembering this horrible massacre.
"America has no greater ally in the Middle East than Israel. Now, more than ever, we are committed to joining them in rooting out terrorism, wherever it may be, to ensure a safer Middle East and a more peaceful world."
