Terrorism and hostage taking may be as old as civilization itself. There are numerous references
to abduction throughout Greek mythology. In midievil times hostages were taken for money or a
guaranteed safe passage through a country. In the U.S., Indians on the western frontier terrorized
settlers to frighten them away. Throughout the twentieth century, up until the 1970’s various
terrorist acts were committed, yet they were not as big a problem as they are today.
The new age of terrorism dawned at 4:30 in the morning of September 5, 1972. It was
then that members of the Palestinian organization Black September attacked the Isreali Olympic

that 200 of their fellow Arabs be released from Isreali prisons. They also wanted Isreal disbanded
and its territory returned to the Palestinian people. The results of the Munich attack were tragic.
