Wintertime For Merkel?

Deutschland is happy and gay. Israel? Not so much and who can blame them? The Jerusalem Post reports that Munich is considering a bid for the 2018 Olympics. The Israeli Olympic Committee is considering a response. I imagine it will be something along the lines of "Ummmm....Are you out of your fucking mind??".

Munich mayor Christian Ude says Munich is "well-equipped and hard to beat like the Panzerkampfwagen VI". Maybe he didn't mention anything about armor.
Following Salzburg's defeat that saw the Russian Black Sea city of Sochi win the 2014 games on Wednesday, Ude said "even more arguments speak in favor of a German bid."
If one goes by that logic, Belarus and Turkmenistan should throw in bids as well. I'm sure the Israelis could come up with just as many arguments if not more against it.

Seriously, people should lighten up. What are the chances of 1972 happening again? Twice in the same place? Come now. Terrorists wouldn't be so foolish as to try it again. I'm sure they've all watched Munich by now. They'd have the Hulk and James Bond on that ass. Anyway, I'm sure they don't like the winter.

Maybe Germany could do its part to appease the naysayers by promising to throw an opening ceremony dedicated to an apology to all peoples wronged by the Fatherland. Of course, it would be through song and dance. An interpretive, apologetic dance done by Bismarck lookalikes wearing pickelhaubes. It could be something similar to the stalker death dance from The Running Man. A Springtime for Hitler rendition with changed lyrics that scream "my bad" or "everyone was on vacation". Of course the finale would be a medley performed by Rammstein, The Scorpions and David Hasselhoff. If that doesn't say let bygones be bygones, I don't know what does.
