Terrorists, who take Americans hostage, are being elected to leadership positions all over the Muslim world.
First, there’s Iran. Yesterday, AP reported that Iran’s President-elect was one of the captors of the American hostages who were taken hostage at the U.S. Embassy and held captive in Iran for 444 days from 1979-1981. Former hostages Chuck Scott, David Roeder, William J. Daugherty, Don A. Sharer, and Kevin Hermening said they recognize Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who won the Iranian “elections,” as one of their captors. “He was extremely cruel,” Sharer said. But some psychobabble psychologist knows better: Psychologist Elizabeth Loftus claims they have “false memories” based on race and ethnicity. Perhaps the ditzy Ms. Loftus of UC-Irvine might forget terrorists who held her captive for over a year. But normal people would not.
Then, there’s Lebanon (a/k/a Greater Syria/Iran). Hezbollah official and Syrian-backed Nabih Berri was re-elected Speaker of the Lebanese Parliament. Berri, head of the Shi’ite Amal Militia, served as spokesman, negotiator, and media mastermind for Hezbollah in its 1985 hijacking of TWA Flight 847, during which the Hezbollah hijackers tortured and murdered Navy diver Robert Stethem. Berri’s re-election celebration resulted in the kind of celebration unique to the dimwitted, Muslim Arab Middle East: “festive” gunfire killed three and injured seven.
The wimpy American “response” to the election of these America-haters and murderers is very telling. Regarding the Iranian terrorist’s election, White House spokesman Scott McClellan uttered the usual fertilizer: “We are looking into [it] to better understand the facts.” Whatever. To the “Lebanese” re-election of Berri, no response at all. What was that President Bush once uttered about being “on our side or the terrorists’ side”? Which side are we on?
