JJOO/Interview. Israel´s ambassador in Great Britain: “We still have to learn the lessons of the terrorism”
Israel´s Embassy in Great Britain, the English Jewish community and the English government carried out a ceremony to commemorate the slain athletes. The act was organized after the International Olympic Committee refused to have a minute of silence during the opening ceremony in the competition.
“We are very disappointed that the appropriate way of remember the victims wasn\’t found. It was an important ceremony and we did it because they were Israeli athletes, but also Olympic athletes”, he said.
Taub also referred to the Iranian influence in the World and said: “There is no doubt that there are many attacks perpetrated by Iran and its proxy Hezbollah against Israeli targets”. Then he remembered the recent bombings in India, Georgia, Thailand and Burglary.
However, he showed some optimism and said that many regions are working to build a better future.
