The Arab terrorists who murdered 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich
Olympics in 1972 were aided by a neo-Nazi who provided them with
weapons and forged documents, the German news magazine Der Spiegel
exposed on Sunday.
The report was based on historical documents released to the magazine
by the German secret service.
According to the report, two months before the murders, Dortmund
police sent a document to the Office for Protection of the
Constitution, Germany’s intelligence agency, which stated that
an “Arab-looking man”, referring to terrorist Abu Daud who led the
attack, met a neo-Nazi named Willi Pohl, who was suspected of helping
the Black September terror organization headed by Abu Daud. Der
Spiegel noted that, although the authorities in Berlin knew about the
meeting, federal police did nothing to prevent the attack.
Following the meeting, Pohl obtained fake passports that helped Abu
Daud and the other terrorists enter Germany, the report said.
Moreover, Pohl also served as a tour guide for the heads of Black
September, touring Abu Daud around Germany and arranging meetings
with terrorists for him.
Pohl told Der Spiegel that “this period is behind him” and denied any
knowledge of the murderous intentions of the terrorists, but the
investigation found that he provided Black September with machine
guns and grenades.
After Pohl’s arrest in 1972, the report said, similar weapons to
those used by Black September were found in his home. He was sent to
jail for a short period, but was released very quickly after being
arrested. Today, Pohl writes novels for a living, under a different
name. Abu Daud died two years ago in Damascus. (IsraelNationalNews ©
