Daoud is a Coward

Why should anyone care what a terrorist thinks?

Munich Terrorist Hits Out at Spielberg---

Steven Spielberg has been criticized by the only surviving Palestinian terrorist behind the massacre at the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany, because the director failed to consult him over his new movie dramatization of the tragic events. Mohammed Daoud was a member of terror group Black September in the early 1970s and was responsible for the deaths of 11 Israelis in Munich's Olympic Village.

He has been on the run ever since. But Daoud is so angry with Spielberg's supposedly pro-Israel stance in new film Munich, he contacted news agency Reuters to put forward his side of the story. He says, "If someone really wanted to tell the truth about what happened he should talk to the people involved, people who know the truth. Were I contacted, I would tell the truth. (Israel) carried out vengeance against people who had nothing to do with the Munich attack, people who were merely politically active or had ties with the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization)."
Well, as the 11 Israeli athletes who were kidnapped (involved) are dead, I guess no one can talk to them. Sorry, Daoud, The truth is you are an evil terrorist who helped slaughter innocent people. That's all the truth we need. Little coward.
