Labnah Sandwich: PFLP Hijackings, Jews & ICE’s Abu Moskowitz

On September 6, 1970, Palestinian terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) hijacked several planes around the world. The planes all had one thing in common: they were carrying mostly Americans.
On Monday Night, tax-funded PBS a/k/a “Palestinian Broadcasting System” (not to be confused with our other forcibly tax-funded media source, NPR a/k/a “National Palestinian Radio”) broadcast “American Experience: Hijacked.”
Even though the joint Islamic/French production, funded by our tax dollars, tried VERY hard to sympathize with the terrorist hijackers, the true nature of the events rang through. (True to form, PBS has a page called “The Hijackers’ Perspective,” kinda like “Mohammed Atta’s Perspective.” Like we should care about that perspective.)

PFLP Hijackings: Planes, 1970; ICE, Abu Moskowitz, 2004-2006

The Palestinian hijackers–almost all of them alive today, wearing nice suits, and living the good life–made such sympathetic statements, like: “We couldn’t just give them the falafel that we were eating,” about starving American hostages who hadn’t eaten for days. (I suppose this is the Islamic version of Marie Antoinette’s “Let them eat cake.”)
Of note, but not mentioned on the program, is that George Habash, founder and chief of the PFLP and mastermind of the hijackings, is NOT a Muslim. As I’ve pointed out many times, including since well before 9/11, he is a Christian, although the hijackers were almost all Muslims.
To me, the most important point of the broadcast was that–as in almost all Islamic hijackings of planes to date (but for the ones on 9/11), including –the passengers were separated by whether or not they were Jews. The non-Jewish Americans were sent to freedom in Amman’s Intercontinental Hotel, while the Jewish Americans were kept on planes and then kept hostage in Palestinian refugee camps.
The PFLP terrorists knew the identities of the Jewish passengers based on their names. The very first Jew seized and separated was Jerry Berkowitz. I noted that Berkowitz sounds a whole lot like Moskowitz. is the name of Michigan and Ohio’s Special Agent in Charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. As I’ve noted extensively on this site, he’s bent over backwards (and forward) for the most extremist Muslims living in the Detroit area. But the person he’s subserved the most is a man named , a “former” PFLP terrorist like the hijackers (and an FBI award revokee, to boot).
While watching “Hijacked,” I noted that when the Jewish American hostages were forced to show their passports, had Moskowitz been a passenger, he’d be in the same line as I. It would make no difference that he betrayed his country, America, in favor of their PFLP brethren. Nope. To them, he’d be a Jew to be hated, tortured, and murdered, just like me.
The PFLP wouldn’t give a horse’s patoot about his activity in cahoots with America’s most prominent PFLP citizen, Hamad. They wouldn’t care that he had the PFLP’s Hamad to his house or . They wouldn’t care if he told them he wanted to have a “Labna Sandwich” with unsuccessful PFLP hijacker Layla Khalid or with Hamad.

Nope, Abu Moskowitz would get the same treatment at the hands of the PFLP hijacker terrorists as “evil Zionist Jewess” and the other evil “imperialist” Americans.
It’s just too bad he doesn’t realize it, and has chosen to sell out America on some warped fantasy that he’d be treated differently.
I got this e-mail from a Jewish reader named Howard, this morning:

I wish that there were more wise Jews. G-d is not a liberal. . . .
One simple question: This guy Moskowitz (Brian “Abu”). The name is rather Jewish. Is he simply a self-hating Jew, or just an idiot liberal?

Howard, unfortunately, the answer is this simple: Both.
Check your local Palestinian Broadcasting System (PBS) listings for re-broadcasts, this week, or “American Experience: Hijacked.”
Of note, regarding the PFLP hijackings, none of the passengers was harmed in the final analysis. Today, we know the results would be far different.
Also of note, one of the PFLP hijackers was an American citizen, Patrick Arguello. He was killed on the El-Al flight he tried to hijack with Ms. Khalid. Which brings me to the final and most important observation: The only flight that was NOT successfully hijacked by the PFLP was the El-Al flight.
For maximum safety, always fly El-Al.

i thought the comment by the pilot of the El Al flight was amusing.
no body is going to hijack this plane!!!
and put it into a dive!!!!
to nit-pic here, while the flights were mostly carrying americans, they tried the El Al flight because they wanted the israeli gov’t/jews involved because of murderers detained in israeli jails.
alas, i was only able to watch the first 15 minutes of the garbage.
would it be necessary to fly only El Al, or make all airlines only fly israeli crews?
the ACLU would surely have fun with that suggestion.

What makes TODAY different than any other day in history???
And by TODAY i mean the same thang as the biblical allusion to MAN…TODAY being the days that followed the exchange of arms for hostages in the traitorous act that dethroned Jimmy Carter, who by the way, WAS the most pro-Hitler president in post-Shoah Amerikkka!!! [Yeah, for all you DS newbies…i’m a Black militant Zionist].
Let’s NOT forget that JC…Carter, not Jezeus…WAS one of the Vichy “christians” that made the current climate of final solutioning possible!!!

El-al pilot’s comment amusing ?

George Habash is no more Christian than Ted Kennedy is Catholic.

Robert Stethem, a US Navy diver, was beaten, murdered and his body dumped on the tarmac. He was not Jewish. Air-Piracy is not a Jewish issue, just as the Holocust was not a Jewish issue alone, others died in the camps, too. And what of the millions of Russians Hitler was responsible for killing? Or, the Chinese, Koreans, Filipino, and Americans the Japanese slaughtered?
As for El-Al, they don’t have 35,000 domestic flights per day to deal with, nor millions of lawyers.

If El-AL ran US airlines inspections they would be profiling something Norm Minetta the Clinton holdover would never do.
He thinks shaking down blonde women and 90 year old men is doing security and banning fingernail clippers is imperative while leaving the cargo holds un-inspected is ok.
In addition, he refuses to hire on the basis of law enforcement background but uses affirmative action to screen his airport inspectors and refuses pilots to carry handguns.

My sister (Jewish by the way) that day (Sep. 6, 1970) flew home to New York on Iberia Airlines. I remember that the hijackngs were ultmately the end of the PLO in Jordan as King Hussein became outraged and his Bedouin troops did what Israel should have done the past few years – they utterly slaughtered the Palestinian terrorists.

That was quite the show about the PFLP Hijackings in 1970. Since I am researching for a book that deals with a similar aviation disaster in the same year I remembered the event, but it was quite informative to see the documentary.
The real real aviation news just announced on Valentine’s Day this month revolves around Airbus though. While crashing a Boeing made aircraft got a lot harder after 9/11…doing the same thing with an Airbus in the future LIKELY just got A LOT easier!!
The Airbus press release states: “Airbus has created a subsidiary called “Airbus Middle East”. Headquartered at the Dubai Airport Free Zone, it will be in charge of ALL commercial activities, including marketing, sales, contracts and customer relations, as well as all customer service activities, such as spare parts, TRAINING, and technical support.”
I can’t believe that 2 weeks after the Airbus announcement that nobody has jumped all over this!! Dubai could have in-house “How to crash an Airbus training modules” and the world would be none the wiser. No need for up-and-coming terrorists to go through all the hassle of acquiring this training in far away Florida.
and for additional speculation

In the name of God the Merciful
The existence of the Zionist entity in the heart of the Arab and Muslim is itself a strange
Because the Zionist entity is not shared with the Arab world of anything characteristics such as religion, customs
Traditions and language. The existence of Israel within the Arab world is a big mistake, and constant tension
In the Middle East, and we note since 1948. Such as the entry of foreign bodies within the human body begins
Body fever, tension and fatigue and to ensure that until the UFOs.
To all Arab and Islamic countries to form the Ministry of Defence and one common to all States and the expulsion of the Jews
From the Middle East. This is the best choice for Arabs and Jews in that one because Bjrdasiraiil within the Arab world
Will feel the Arab world would not be true of the world would not be true of the Jewish people will never feel the stability and comfort, unless
Came out of Palestine, all Palestine greetings to all
