NOTE: The TT receives word that a J’lem Post article will give a more in depth report on the story. Will update once it comes online, the GDR I hear helped the group and W.Germans enabled them and others.
Olympic terror attack that killed 11 Israeli athletes, according to a Der Spiegel magazine story on Sunday.
According to the online Spiegel report, police in the city of Dortmund sent a notice to the German domestic intelligence agency, Verfassungsschutz (BfV), in which “Saad Walli, an ‘Arab looking man’ met conspiratorially with the German neo-Nazi Willi Pohl.” The meeting took place roughly seven weeks before the 1972 terror attack in Munich.
Saad Walli was the cover name for Abu Daoud, who is widely believed to be the ringleader of the 1972 terror attack in Germany. Pohl bragged to his employer about his contact with the extremist PLO wing.
According to the BfV documents, there are no indications that the Dortmund police informed the various German authorities about Daoud. Spiegel wrote that it helps explain why the Palestinians were able to prepare their action in an unfettered way in the Federal Republic.
Pohl, the neo-Nazi, is now a crime fiction author and said, “I chauffeured Abu Daoud throughout the entire Federal Republic where he met in different cities with Palestinians.” Pohl helped Daoud obtain false passports and other documents, according to the report.
Spiegel added that Pohl has now “credibly distanced himself” and claims that he was involved without his knowledge in preparations for the 1972 Olympic terror attack. The BfV document contains 2,000 pages of material about the attacks.
It is unclear why the German domestic intelligence agency, state and federal police authorities failed to act on the information from the local Dortmund police. Critics have long accused the German authorities of a lax enforcement policy toward radical Islamic groups. The Iranian-backed Hezbollah, which has engaged in terror attacks in the Middle East and in South America, is a legal political organization in Germany, with an estimated 900 active members.

The Munich massacre of 1972 has long been considered the sole work of Palestinian terrorist group Black September, but new evidence has emerged suggesting the involvement of German neo-Nazis, Der Spiegel magazine reported on Sunday.
Historical documents released to the magazine by the German secret service show that Dortmund police had been aware of collaboration between Palestinian terrorist Abu Daud and neo-Nazi Willi Pohl seven weeks before the attack – yet did not intervene, wrote the paper.
According to the report, Dortmund police sent a letter to the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Germany’s intelligence agency, in July 1972, raising suspicions about a meeting that had taken place between the Palestinian and the neo-Nazi, who had bragged to his employer about having contact to the radical wing of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO).
Despite the strong evidence of terrorist activity against him – including being in possession of a letter written by the Black September group – Pohl was given a light sentence of just two years and two months in 1974. Four days after being sentenced, he made his escape to Beirut, Lebanon.
