Islam Scholar Dr. Andrew Bostom made a great comparison. He compares the green phony democracy stuff in Iran that blind Westerners are eating up to “Soylent Green”–the recycled green “matter” (which turned out to be recycled dead humans) that ignorant humans ate in a desolate future in the great early ’70s Charlton Heston flick. He calls it “Mousavi’s Soylent Green Revolution.” He has more on how supporting the green protestors is perpetuating Iran’s culture of hate–to the point of these young revolutionaries kicking helpless puppies!
Washington Times and syndicated columnist Diana West takes it a step further, riffing off of Andrew’s comparison and calling Westerner’s blind cheering for the Iranian protesters, “Soylent Green Revolutionary Syndrome,” an excellent moniker. West calls the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens to the carpet over his absolutely disgusting pandering to Islam and an extremist Mousavi-supporting Iranian Shi’ite cleric.
When I read Stephens’ barf-worthy column in yesterday’s paper, I wanted to hurl. He talks about how “allahu akbar”–the Muslim terror chant that allah is the “greatest” or “greater” than our G-d–”sounded so sweet” and how Mousavi–the founder of Hezbollah and the man behind the bombing murders of hundreds of our Marines in Beirut (more on that below)–practices “mercy-Islam.”
Read both of their worthy, on-target take-downs–Andrew’s and Diana’s.
And then, there’s your chief martyr–Mr. Mousavi. I’ve already told you several times (including here, here, and here) about how he was 1) chosen by the Ayatollahs to be a candidate in the first place, 2) was a Khomeini acolyte, 3) fomented the 1979 Iranian revolution which held Americans hostage for 444 days, 4) started Iran’s nuclear development program, 5) supports the destruction of Israel, 6) founded the Hezbollah terrorist group which murdered over 300 U.S. Marines and Embassy officials in Beirut, and 7) is allied with Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the mastermind of the Hezbollah bombing murders of over 114 innocent people at the Jewish community center and Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires Argentina in the ’90s.
Now, we learn that not only did he found Hezbollah, but that he is responsible for the butchery of our Marines in Beirut . . . while they slept (and while they were there to protect Muslims from Israelis and Lebanese Christians).
“They Came in Peace”: Memorial to Marines Slain in Beirut
Three decades ago Mir-Hossein Mousavi was waging a terrorist war on the United States that included bloody attacks on the U.S. embassy and Marine Corps barracks in Beirut.
Mousavi, prime minister for most of the 1980s, personally selected his point man for the Beirut terror campaign, Ali Akbar Mohtashemi-pur, and dispatched him to Damascus as Iran’s ambassador, according to former CIA and military officials.
The ambassador in turn hosted several meetings of the cell that would carry out the Beirut attacks, which were overheard by the National Security Agency.
“We had a tap on the Iranian ambassador to Lebanon,” retired Navy Admiral James “Ace” Lyons related by telephone Monday. In 1983 Lyons was deputy chief of Naval Operations, and deeply involved in the events in Lebanon.
“The Iranian ambassador received instructions from the foreign minister to have various groups target U.S. personnel in Lebanon, but in particular to carry out a ‘spectacular action’ against the Marines,” said Lyons. . . .
Lyons said of Mousavi . . .”[H]e was in a principal position and had to be aware of what was going on.”
Lyons, sometimes called “the father” of the Navy SEALs’ Red Cell counter-terror unit, also fingered Mousavi for the 1988 truck bombing of the U.S. Navy’s Fleet Center in Naples, Italy, that killed five persons, including the first Navy woman to die in a terrorist attack.
Bob Baer agrees that Mousawi, who has been celebrated in the West for sparking street demonstrations against the Teheran regime since he lost the elections, was directing the overall 1980s terror campaign.
But Baer, a former CIA Middle East field officer whose exploits were dramatized in the George Clooney movie “Syriana,” places Mousavi even closer to the Beirut bombings.
“He dealt directly with Imad Mughniyah,” who ran the Beirut terrorist campaign and was “the man largely held responsible for both attacks,” Baer wrote in TIME over the weekend.
“When Mousavi was Prime Minister, he oversaw an office that ran operatives abroad, from Lebanon to Kuwait to Iraq,” Baer continued.
“This was the heyday of [Ayatollah] Khomeini’s theocratic vision, when Iran thought it really could export its revolution across the Middle East, providing money and arms to anyone who claimed he could upend the old order.”
Baer added: “Mousavi was not only swept up into this delusion but also actively pursued it.”
Retired Adm. Lyons maintained that he could have destroyed the terrorists at a hideout U.S. intelligence had pinpointed, but he was outmaneuvered by others in the cabinet of President Ronald Reagan.
“I was going to take them apart,” Lyons said, “but the secretary of defense,” Caspar Weinberger, “sabotaged it.”
Figures. Weinberger of Jewish ancestry was an anti-Semite, who hated Israel and pandered to Muslims and Arabists.
Just like all of you greeniacs are doing today.
The more things change . . . .
In case you forgot about the 1983 bombings or don’t think those are important, here’s a refresher.
