"Last week we covered a lot of topics concerning the politics behind the Olympics. There were a few attendees that didn't know about the Munich massacre. We spent some time describing its context. We also discussed North Korea and the upcoming Olympics taking place in South Korea. Then Laura BenAmots showed up and we discussed the tense political conflict between Israel and Palestine, and how it connects to the motives of Black September. She shared that Russia is going to be allowed to participate in the Winter Olympics despite last year's major doping scandal. Keith Barnes also attended and proposed a mindset to find a solution. We ended the conversation with how revisioning history is problematic."
