    During Operation Wrath of God, the Mossad's death squad unit, Caesarea, assassinated between 20 and 33 Palestinians who they claimed perpetrated the Munich Massacre. Twenty years later, the chief of the Mossad at the time, Zvi Zamir, admitted that only one of those assassinated actually had anything to do with Munich. The goal of the operation was to increase the price any Palestinian would pay for joining the resistance leadership. Munich was a pretext. The definitive book on the Mossad's terror campaign, Striking Back, concludes that any PLO operative wandering unprotected around the Europe was as good as a genuine terrorist for that purpose. The same is true about Hamas today. FYI, the mastermind of Munich, Mohammed Abu Daoud, returned home to Ramallah after Oslo and lives there now in retirement. All three Black September terrorists who survived the shootout in Munich are alive and well today. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Wrath_of_God
