TRAVESTY: Achille Lauro Muslim Hijacker who Murdered Klinghoffer Freed

By Debbie Schlussel
Italy sucks. Sadly, this isn’t the first time that country has been soft on Islamic terrorists, and it won’t be the last.
Last summer, Italy freed another of the 1985 Achille Lauro hijacker/murderers, Ibrahim Fatayer Abdelatif.
Now, they’ve released the man who shot my friend, Lisa Klinghoffer’s dad, Leon, in cold blood, when he was a helpless 69-year-old in a wheelchair celebrating his wedding anniversary. His crime: Being a Jew and an American.

One of the Palestinians who hijacked the Achille Lauro cruise ship and killed a U.S. passenger in 1985 has been released after more than 23 years in jail in Sicily, officials said yesterday.


Leon Klinghoffer: American Hero in Life & Death

Youssef Magied al-Molqui, a member of the four-man team that hijacked the ship off Egypt, had been serving a 30-year sentence, which was reduced for good behavior.
He was convicted of shooting Leon Klinghoffer, an elderly Jewish man from New York, and ordering him to be dumped in the sea while in his wheelchair. Klinghoffer’s daughters and the Anti-Defamation League condemned Molqui’s early release.

These were Palestinian Islamic terrorists working at the direction of Abul Abbas a/k/a Abu Abbas.
Not that I believe things would be different if Molqui was in American federal prison. As I’ve noted before, I have credible information that another of the Achille Lauro hijackers is living in Dearbornistan, with the full knowledge and complicity of the U.S. government. And I even know his name.
Here is a letter Lisa Klinghoffer sent me on the 20th anniversary of her father’s murder:

Dear Debbie,
Thank you so much! It has been a tough time for me this past week. We went to the cemetery and cried. I have tried to be so brave and stoic over the years and do the work that we do in Leon’s honor and memory. But sometimes, I just have “a moment,” and all families have to go through the same, as we do.
Thanks for remembering. I mean that’s what it’s all about: to remember and to educate so that perhaps one day ……….
Lisa Klinghoffer

I’m sure this news makes things tough, yet again, for the daughter of this innocent, disabled victim of Islamic terrorism aimed at Jews and Americans.

I feel so sorry for Lisa Klinghoffer. This barbaric Muslim butcher deserved to die for the cowardly murder of her father. What will wake up the Infidel world? How many more of us must die before we destroy the enemies of freedom?

What a sad story-can’t believe it. Justice can be elusive sometimes:(

People should ask themselves this: just how likely would it be for a Jew who killed a physically handicapped Muslim and did so solely on the basis of religious hatred, and who was tried for this crime in a Shari’a court, be allowed to live, let alone be released? In fact, merely being tried in a Shari’a court if one is a Jew (or any other infidel) for killing a Muslim is tantamount to a guilty verdict, and a resultant death sentence.

One thing more: in many if not most instances where Muslims attack and kill Jews, Islam-based Jew hatred as a motive is de-emphasized or denied; instead, political or personal motives are cited, accompanied by phrases such as “the individual acted alone” or “the individual had no known ties to terrorism.” Islam is virulently antisemitic at its core. The very first sura (chapter) of the Koran incorporates a plea to Allah imploring that the Believer not take the path of those who have incurred Allah’s wrath. According to the majority of Islamic jurists, clerics, and scholars, this refers specifically to the Jews. Subsequent suras reinforce and elaborate this Jew-hatred, and this is echoed repeatedly in the other canonical texts of Islam and upheld by the ijma (consensus of scholars).

It’s a terrible thing that this happens and a murderer is set free. It happens everyday and society willfully shields it’s eyes from this act of insanity. The same society that hopes that no one in their family has this tragedy fall on them. I got to know a prisoner that killed the perpetrator of a sex crime against his young niece. The pervert was part of a larger group of bad guys but this man didn’t care. He shot the guy point blank in the chest. I instantly respected that convict more than most people I’ve met or heard of. To me that was completely selfless act and should’ve been rewarded with a medal instead of murder one.

So Trans-judiciaries allow a person to be murdered in a hate-crime method, give a little smack on the wrist token jail time, then set them free. This Muslim hate-filled bastard, like the Gitmo detainees, will go out, and do it all over again. The West just doesn’t get it.

Debbie, it just occurred to me that really bad things happen to people all the time, and I suppose the Mossad must know who that turd in Dearborn is, too. Anyway, I want you to know that I find almost everything you write to be important and useful, except for your immigration stuff which I like but don’t get too wound up about since the whole thing is such a hopeless mess, and your sports stuff, which I like a lot but sometimes know more about than you. Also I like to think of your comment section as my blog with you as the only intended audience. I hope you don’t mind.

The Achille Lauro incident is one of the very first incidents of Islamic terrorism that I really took notice of. And it gave me some insight into the Muslim mind. At the time I was an engineering undergrad and there were plenty of Muslim students around; most with BMW’s and plenty of money. I came to school the day after the news of Mr. Klinghoffer’s murder and I was pissed. When I expressed some of my outrage to a Muslim student, someone I studied with in fact, his reply was something to the effect of “what do expect them to do when nobody will listen?” Hearing that one comment was the beginning of my understanding of what I would ultimately understand is jihad. I distanced myself from that ‘friend’ as he went on to try to ‘engineer’ an immigration marriage. After graduating I stopped taking calls from him. So yeah, I remember the Achille Lauro as much more than a sidenote in history.
