Der Spiegel reports Neo-Nazis provides weapons, fake passports to
Black September Palestinian terrorists who murdered Israeli athletes
German neo-Nazis aided the Black September Palestinian terrorists who
kidnapped and murdered Israeli athletes during the 1972 Olympic Games
in Munich, Der Spiegel reports.
Historical documents released to the magazine by the German secret
service show that Dortmund police had been aware of collaboration
between Palestinian terrorist Abu Daud and neo-Nazi Willi Pohl seven
weeks before the attack - but did not intervene, the paper said.
According to the report, Dortmund police documented a meeting between
the two but could not discover the agreements reached.
According to the documents, Pohl provided Abu Daud – who went under
the alias Saad Walli – with fake passports which the terrorists used
to enter Germany.
Pohl, who renounced terrorism decades ago and now publishes crime
novels under another name, told Der Spiegel he was unknowingly
involved in the preparations for the attack. “I chauffeured Abu Daud
back and forth across Germany, where he met Palestinians in various
cities,” he told the paper.
Pohl was eventually arrested in October 1972 in Munich. He was found
in possession of sub-machine guns, hand grenades and other weapons
and is thought to have been planning further attacks on German soil
on behalf of the PLO, Der Spiegel said.
He was sentenced to only two years in prison, released a short while
later and then left Germany for Beirut. (Copyright 2012 © Yedioth
