“Soylent Green Revolution Syndrome”: Mousavi Masterminded Hezbo Murder of U.S. Marines

By Debbie Schlussel
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.

Heartbreaking. I haven’t seen these images from Lebanon in so long. These Republicans don’t speak for me!

Casper Weinberger was not Jewish. He was of Jewish ancestry and rather embarrassed about it, I might add.

There are people who can’t or won’t think. A revolution that promises more of the same – beheadings, floggings, amputations and torture is not a revolution for liberty. The difference between the Ahmedinejad and Mousavi factions is one won and the other one lost. They are not friends of freedom or of the West. We should all hope they keep fighting among themselves forever so they won’t unite to kill all of us. This is one drama in Iran of the which the West ought to stay clear.

Iran is up to something big. I knew there was something amiss with all the news coverage of leaking videos, and the usual and predictable events. They wouldn’t be doing this smoke and mirrors of riots, unrest, and the beginnings of another revolution. This is staged.
Iran is ruled by dictators: they would’ve killed a lot more people for a protest in the thousands, then hunted down the ones that escaped; along with their entire family. So far, I’ve only heard numbers below 20 to roughly 250 (depends on who you listen to). Historically, the death toll should’ve been 8,000+ with the mass graves filled by now.
Also, during the Israel/Hezbollah war, the Muslims weren’t beyond staging fake scenes and doctoring photographs for the State-Run media. I’m sure we all remember the screaming old lady who appeared in most of them.
I need hard info before this “revolution” is believable.

Debbie, we should have a running list of embarrassed Jews. I nominate Dick Darman, Bob Novak, Barbara Walters, Sarah M. Gellar and Henry Kissinger.

Thanks, Debbie. It seems an awful lot of otherwise smart Conservatives are getting played by this one.
Now, when I comment on some blogs that Mousavi is one of the bad guys, some other commenters start fantasizing that this “isn’t about mousavi,” as if they could read the Iranian mind and heart. Well, if it isn’t about him, then why is it his supporters who are rioting? D’Oh!
Anyway, thanks again for keeping us up to speed on the topic, so we can avoid getting sucked into what amounts to the “my terrorist is better than your terrorist” hysteria.

bhparkman at June 24, 2009 11:50 PM said “This is staged.”
I had that thought myself, and one reason I thought of was to distract the world, possibly related to their nuke project (which was Mousavi’s baby)? Is he cynically egging on the protesters to conceal something, or to make it difficult for Israel to bomb them, in the midst of internal upheaval. Can you imagine the world reaction if Israel bombed Iran now?
I would like to see this theme developed, and other possibilities explored, if there are any.
I short, I do think you may just be onto something.

[bhparkman – Iran is up to something big. … This is staged.]
I have stated at least twice that I believe something other than protesting the election is going on. While the support outside of Iran for what is going on can be explained by ignorance (this is an explanation, not an excuse), those inside Iran certainly know the issues. That this is staged I think is certain. Why and by who, I am not so sure about.
By the way, I wonder if Mousavi had anything to do with the brutal murder and torture of Bill Higgins in Beirut.
Lastly, I had to comment on the “mercy-Islam” quote from Bret Stephens. I was listening to the Hugh Hewitt show tonight. A caller commented that Christianity had to be reformed because those who perpetrated the Spanish Inquisition and the abuses of the crusades were not acting like Christ. However when Muslims in Iran stone women they are acting exactly like Mohammed.

Debbie, as usual, resets us with a dose of reality.

Jonason asks “. . .one reason I thought of was to distract the world, possibly related to their nuke project (which was Mousavi’s baby)? ”
Wonder if the planned DPRK ?fireworks spectacular?
is a convenient diversion of limited resources
while DPRK & Iran was busy “consolidating the unity and solidarity of the world anti-imperialist forces for independence” / for “a historic event of great significance”
Are the disputed election disturbances in Iran simply amplified noise [aka/intentionally created chaos] ?hastening? preparation/anticipation of 12th mahdi?s return
say, possibly for a certain BBQ this fourth? Latest reports are that none of the devout Iranian diplo-shahids were willing kaboobs for this BBQ, hence the WH has withdrawn the invitations.

i cant believe that this memorial hasnt been vandalized by the muslim who hate us so much. this is a good gesture the lebanon built a memorial for us.

PNAMARBLE on June 25, 2009 at 7:59 am

You are way ahead of the curve on this one. The Right wants to keep up with the Left. Obama and the MSM has made the Right second-guess all their previous convictions. The MSM wants to “bear witness” to some utopian existence of Muslim and the West. Obviously the real truth about Mousavi will never come out by the Left and now the Right.

I’d only counsel two things:
o That you and everyone else use the correct name for Iran’s Lebanese proxy: Hezb’Allah. “Party of Allah.” Its doctrinaire Islamic basis gets lost when it’s spelled “Hezbollah” or “Hizbullah”… which is probably why that’s done.
o That you and everyone else would add “Khameneh” to “Mir-Hossein Mousavi” so folks with long memories might clue on who this bastard really is. I missed that point until a few days ago. Mousavi Khameneh is far from an unknown quantity… and he’s no friend of “democracy” or “peace”. It’s really quite disturbing to watch the media, pundits and politicians swilling that Kool-Aid.

Yor link didn’t work, so I googled your quotes (thanks for giving them), and I get this unique link for the first one…
The second quote is interesting, in that if you google it with the term “korea” you get 354 hits, and if with the term “iran” you get 10. Aparently they like to use it a lot, especially the North Koreans. Narcississts think everything they do is “the most important event evah.”

yonason on June 25, 2009 at 3:26 pm

Oh, this is just too much!
Now they are asking Israel to help them…
Yes, give them technology that they can use against us when it’s captured, or when they win and turn it against us. Will Israel fall for it? Hey, they believed Arafat.

yonason on June 26, 2009 at 12:59 am

Mira– You are mistaken…This memorial was not built by the Lebanese. It was put up by the town of Jacksonville, NC at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base.
