My Hope for Spain-Germany

The Spanish Inquisition vs. the Holocaust. It's not a Jew-friendly semifinal of the World Cup. No disrespect to the players or their families. I'm sure they're all lovely people. But I wouldn't mind a repeat of Munich 1972. Another occurrence of the 1970 Marshall football team wouldn't be so bad either. Of course, it would have to involve a horrific bus crash as the teams will probably not fly from the hotel to the stadium.

I know people are not responsibly for the atrocious actions of their ancestors. A terrible tragedy to either of these teams won't bring back the millions of Jews these two countries are responsible for killing. But still.
