    Aly Rasiman floor ex

    It seems that Ali chose Hava Na gila music in honor of the Israeli team that died in Munich in 1972. She was Jewish and wanted to express that. She is geting lots of press here and will gets a heros welcome after the 5 do a lot of visits.

    Oh wow that's wonderful! Most often, NBC, BBC, and the others (along with interviews with Aly herself) have said she was doing it to salute her Jewish roots (she's had that FX for two years now). I'm glad she's changed it to be a tribute to Munich.

    I've always loved it when skaters and gymnasts say something with their programs or routines. It lets me know that they do more than just do gymnastics, or skate.

    The interview I heard made it seem it was always a tribute using the music. How can the IOC stop anyone from offering a performance to anyone? And why hasn't the IOC done a tribute llong ago about the Munich murders? I have no clue why'd they be against it.

    I that Aly did this, and am incensed with the IOC on their lack of sensitivity re: the Israeli atheletes in Munich.

    Agreed. A snide voice inside me tempts me to believe the IOC just didn't realize that Hava Nagila was an Israeli song, or they'd have asked her to do something else. Good for Aly.

    And she won with it! Two golds!

    I truly believe God's hand was on Aly they day she blew the roof off with Hava Nagila. In the old testament, The lord has said "he who blesses Israel, I will bless" and she came home with the most medals when Weiber was more expected. Aly is back in her home gym and will be covered in little gymnasts! Seriously, why was there not a memeorial years ago? Was there some fear of attracting more terrorists. I do not see why they would be against this. Rogge is a strange fellow.
