TWA 847: Hezbollah Hijacking, Torture/Murder of Navy Diver Stethem 27 Years Ago

By Debbie Schlussel

In addition to Flag Day and the anniversary of the founding of the U.S. Army, today is the 27th anniversary of the Hezbollah hijacking of TWA Flight 847. Tomorrow is the 27th anniversary of the torture murder of U.S. Navy Diver Robert Dean Stethem on that hijacked plane. Hezbollah and Harakat Amal–the Shi’ite Amal Militia–took over the plane and tortured and trampled Stethem to death because he had the utmost honor and patriotism and refused to denounce America. He was just 23 years old. Pilot John Testrake, who had a gun to his head, was the first live-coverage hostage in what was the first successful wall-to-wall live TV coverage that Islamic terrorists have used to their advantage ever since.

center>The Heroes of Dearbornistan Hijacked TWA 847, Murdered Robert Dean Stethem

As I’ve said in every anniversary I’ve marked of this tragedy, Hezbollah’s Shi’ites won in the short run because America–and this was Ronald Reagan’s biggest mistake–never retaliated for this horrible terrorist act. And in the long run, Hezbollah won because tens of thousands of its Shi’ites now occupy and dominate Dearbornistan and Dearbornistan Heights, Michigan, where they’ve already elected a Hezbollah judge and coopted a large number of dhimmi elected official and other politicians. Donald Trump orchestrated a Hezbollah supporter (whose family members are Hezbollah terrorists) into the position of Miss USA at his silly pageant, and FOX News morning bimbo Gretchen Carlson didn’t have the decency or the balls to ask her about it. And because Republican AND Democrat politicians–including Presidential candidates on both sides–repeatedly pander to them for their endorsement, despite the fact that these Shi’ites support Hezbollah and Iran. We may have gotten “All-American Muslim” off a minor cable network. But where it counts–on America’s streets–they are running the show more and more. Mitt Romney will pander to Michiganistan’s Hezbollah Shi’ites just as George W. Bush and Barack Obama did. Don’t forget how W. out-pandered Al Gore to get their meaningless endorsement. Romney will make the same effort, and I hear he’s already made entreaties to these cretins on our shores. And, so, while I will not forget Rob Stethem and what happened to him, most of America already has. And both of two men–one of whom will run the country for the next four years–will pander to those who honor and support his murderers.


I’ve written much more about how those who hijacked TWA 847 keep on winning, including here and here.

Robert Dean Stethem, gruesomely murdered on that plane for being a proud American and serving in America’s military, rest in peace. John Testrake, who died later in life but acted with courage and honor with a gun to his head, rest in peace also. Their ghosts must certainly be wailing over how Hezbollah has invaded America without a single bullet–without an ounce of protest or resistance–since they left this Earth.

Never forget. Never forgive. And wake up to what is going on inside our borders while we do nothing.

Hezbollah today runs the Lebanese government.

Its not the first time in history an extremist movement took over a country.

We may have a reprieve in Egypt, where the military just invalidated the Muslim Brotherhood win in the recent parliamentary elections there. The irony is the Obama Administration has been fighting hard to install Islamists in power in Cairo.

America should take the right path like Robert Dean Stethem and John Testrake did. But it probably and tragically won’t.

And we should never forget or forgive those who murdered an innocent American in cold blood.

Unfortunately both parties pander to the worst elements of our society in their insane quest for votes. We are deluded in thinking that politicians work for the best interest of the country.They work for themselves. End of story.

“And, so, while I will not forget Rob Stethem and what happened to him, most of America already has. And both of two men–one of whom will run the country for the next four years–will pander to those who honor and support his murderers.”

Wow. Really poignant piece of writing there, Debbie. Thanks for reminding us all of this tragic turning point in muslim terrorism and the brave sailor whose murder marked this sickening milestone for muslims.

So the same crew of losers are still hanging out on this blog, ranting about the imminent attack of the ravening Muslim hordes. Why am I not surprised?

Wonder how long it will be before one of this pathetic blog’s resident Schlussel guardians will call me a MUSLIM (Oh the horror).

    How about dhimmi? Or islamic filth?

    Are you really Rashida Tlaib in drag?

The stupidest woman on earth is…. Hillary Clinton!

http://www.jpost.com/DiplomacyAndPolitics/Article.aspx?id=273928

There’s a reason she loves the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic terrorists.

This is the kind of leader Americans are cursed with today. I’m glad she’ll never be President!

NormanF on June 14, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    Are you really sure, Norman? When Obamination throws Biden under the bus, who’s he going to pick? I sure hope you’re right tho. Stupid AND Evil is definitely a bad combination.

    Italkit on June 15, 2012 at 11:15 am

It’s 2012 and we are still pandering to the Islamic threat.

It’s disgusting.

Skunky on June 14, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    Why do you only highlight the bad things about Islam?
    That said, how is ISLAM to blame for a group of disgusting terrorists.
    If there were a group of Christian Terrorists, that hijacked some place and said it was because “Jesus” told them to, they’d just be called Looneys, caught and chucked in jail right? It’s not like the rest of the Christian Population would be demeaned and hated against for it.

    THEN DO YOU ACT LIKE the religion and people of Islam should be hated for it.

    THERE IS NOTHING.
    NOTHING. I tell you WRONG with the Religion Islam.
    In cases, where terrorists are involved, then it’s not the
    Religion thats corrupt, it’s them as people.

    Those terrorists lack brains.
    and in my opinion. SO DO You.

    YouDumb on June 17, 2012 at 2:03 pm

      The aptly named YouDumb sez:

      “Why do you only highlight the bad things about Islam?
      ……………………………………………
      THERE IS NOTHING.
      NOTHING. I tell you WRONG with the Religion Islam.
      In cases, where terrorists are involved, then it’s not the
      Religion thats corrupt, it’s them as people.”

      Honeycakes, there is EVERYTHING wrong with Islam. Its followers–people like you–are morally deficient. You even lie for your faux religion by denying that it is a deeply corrupting influence, making good people bad and bad people far worse.

      Imagine a world without Islam!

      skzion on June 18, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Yeah, agreed. Just like in our Secretary Of State we’re blessed with, who thinks if Egyptians want to vote in a dictatorship, we must support them come hell or high water.

That is beyond disgusting!

NormanF on June 14, 2012 at 4:45 pm

I know that hindsight is 20/20, but the correct response to Hizbullah @ that time would have been to bomb Iran. Unlike Syria and Iraq, Iran was not an ally of the Soviets, so they wouldn’t have vetoed it.

The bombing of Libya in 1982 changed Gadaffi for good – other than Lockerbie, his appetite for jihad dried up some. And after the Iraq war, he was even more eager to lay down his WMDs. Had the same thing been done to Iran – an Iran which was not at the time backed by Moscow, we wouldn’t be dealing w/ a nuclear powered Iran today, and probably, that regime would have gone.

About Egypt, it’s like locking the stable doors after the horse has bolted. Everybody will question the grounds on which the newly elected parliament has been dissolved, and Egypt will have a civil war not unlike Algeria in the 90s. Israel had better come to terms w/ the fact that its Western border is no longer as safe as it was since 1981.

The only thing standing b/w the Muslim Brotherhood and unchallenged power is the Assad regime in Syria.

Infidel on June 14, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Infidel, no one in Egypt believes a group of Mubarak Era judges actually read the Constitution and came to that conclusion.

The military’s response to the Supreme Constitutional Court’s ruling speaks volumes as to who really authored it. In 2011, the Egyptian establishment did not want Mubarak’s unpopular and incompetent son to be its face. That’s why they tossed his father out.

In Ahmed Shafiq, they saw someone more likable and decided to rewrite the rules for him. If he wins the second round, the establishment is going to rewrite the parliamentary election rules to preclude a future Muslim Brotherhood win.

Call it a military coup if you like. On balance, keeping the old regime under another name in power is preferable to Egypt being run by Muslim Brotherhood fanatics.

America’s leaders should be supporting the status quo ante. An Islamic Republic on the Nile is definitely not in America’s interests.

Thank you for remembering Robert. And John.

A.J. on June 14, 2012 at 7:06 pm

Robert Stethem is an example of the best the USA has to offer. He makes me proud to be a US Citizen. I’ll never forget him and his courage. RIP Robert.

“Robert Dean Stethem, gruesomely murdered on that plane for being a proud American and serving in America’s military, rest in peace. John Testrake, who died later in life but acted with courage and honor with a gun to his head, rest in peace also.”

Amen. Thank you for your annual reminder of these great men, Debbie.

JeffE on June 14, 2012 at 9:43 pm

Now to the main topic while I took my anger on that unhinged troll, whoever in this country today supports hezbollah should be investigated by the FBI and CIA, that’s my opinion, last I checked, hezbollah is a Lebanese muslim-terrorists group that’s done ALOT of atrocious acts towards mankind in the past, and NO you muslims who supports them, hezbollah is NOT a government or organization!

And let’s not forget that six years ago these phuckin hezbollah assholes launched missles into Haifa, Israel that started the Lebanon/hezbollah-Israel war. And do you folks remember that Haifa Wehbe said in an interview that Israel started the attacks and bashed Israel in that interview she gaved to Lebanese media outlets, and Wehbe also supports hezbollah, so let her ass stay in Lebanon and collaborate with those hezbollah scumbags.

Sean R. on June 14, 2012 at 10:12 pm

First: The Hizzbullah is getting whacked by Ulterior force, that is by intercine violence in Syria, later Lebanon, at a rate of a hundred times the violence they meted out to Americans.
Second: Dearbornistan, sticking to dead-beat cars engorged by Oil is likely to die off when Oil reaches 250 dollars a barrel sometime before november. Its a shame to kill off the american Industry but that’s what you get when you import Arab labor. It starts as labor and ends as an Islamic conqueror

Dr Yuval on June 15, 2012 at 4:54 am

Dear Debbie,
Thank you for helping us remember the courageous and honorable Mr. Stethem and Mr. Testrake. And your larger point about what is happening in this country can not be overstated.

Also, your point about Reagan’s doing nothing is valid. He made that same mistake when Hezbollah truck-bombed our peace-keeper Marines in Beirut. He did nothing. Muslims saw this and concluded that America is a paper tiger.

Thank you for all your important work.

Dave London on June 15, 2012 at 1:27 pm

the national socialist democratic workers party and rinos are responsible for changing our immergration laws in 1965 which allowed a flood of ragheads into america.no politian will speak the truth about these sub-human followers of the pediphile prophet and say they can not be civilized therefor we should kick their asses out of america.back to jihad land with the lot of them.

BRUCE on June 15, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Dr Yuval, I sincerely hope that that’s the case. I don’t wan’t Hizbullah militias in Tyre or Sidon or anywhere near Galilee. I want them all in Syria, fighting to their teeth to keep the Sunni jihadis from closing in on Damascus.

Already, Homs is in Sunni control and Christians have fled, but the last thing I want is a smooth takeover of Syria by the Muslim Brotherhood. If they’ve been prevented from capturing power in Egypt, well and good, but in Syria, if Assad falls, it will be a similar story like Libya. And unlike Libya, which is nowhere near Israel (which is why even Gadaffi couldn’t do much against them), they are right on the border, and can reoccupy Lebanon (something the Arab League would support in order to end Hizbullah’s role there and shift power back to the Sunnis).

So hopefully, Hizbullah will get destroyed in Syria, but not before they’ve done serious damage to the Sunnis there as well, particularly the likes of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and al Qaeda.

Infidel on June 16, 2012 at 2:47 am

Excellent article. I didn’t know anything about this horrific murder. Do you have a link to Facebook because I know that I will probably want to post your articles in the future and looked all over and couldn’t find any link.

Keep up your brave work, exposing those Barbarians for what they are.
