Kerry Chats w/Terrorist Leader in TWA Flight 847 Hijacking
Front Page Mag ^ | 6/6/14 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 06/09/2014 8:59:23 PM PDT by Nachum

Here’s John Kerry having a good time with Nabih Berri, the head of the Amal Movement, and speaker of the Hezbollah dominated Lebanese parliament. What better way to follow up the Taliban deal than to meet with another terrorist hijacker.

Back in 1985, Amal and Hezbollah terrorists used the hijacking of TWA Flight 847 to demand the release of imprisoned terrorists.

A TWA airliner, Flight 847 en route from Athens to Rome, was hijacked by Shia terrorists of the Hizballah organization who demanded the release of Shia prisoners held in Kuwait, Israel, and Spain. The airliner was forced to fly to Beirut, where nineteen passengers were released, then to Algiers, where twenty-two more were freed. It then returned to Beirut where on June 15 one of the passengers, a United States Navy diver, was murdered. Seven American passengers, who, according to the terrorists, had Jewish- sounding surnames, were taken off the jet by Hizballah terrorists and sequestered in Beirut.

The photo is from

www.australianterroristdatabase.com/

However I remember that it also made for the cover of Time magazine of the month of this original incident.

I was just a very young boy however at the time I remember that snap being just everywhere, at the time.

Well given it's kerry, he could drive them to detonating their suicide belts just so they didn't have to listen to him anymore.

They had been interviewing the pilot with questions shouted to that small window, and answers shouted back. This interview did not last long, but proved long enough to anger the gunman still inside.

At another time they also interviewed their confederates, who collected at the bottom of the deployable aft staircase (I think D.B. Cooper jumped from one such egress, years ago):

I remember these guys all did get away however US intel learned of them being flown later somewhere across the Mediterranean and F-14's scrambled from a carrier suceeded in forcing the transport to land somewhere friendly to the USA.

There were some heavy negotiations and I think those guys all later did land in prison, somewhere.

So against all odds they later ended up not getting away with it, after all.

I could be mixing up this happy ending with that of the perps of the Achille Lauro job, however.

Thanks for posting his name. The reporter didn’t even have the courtesy to recall his name after his sacrifice. We used this event when we developed, “In The Face of Terrorism” for Fred Friendly many years ago on PBS.

"They shot USN diver Robert Dean Stethem and threw his body onto the tarmac."

That alone is enough to get anyone in the treasonous
US State Dept an orgasm. They pray to anyone killing Americans
including Arafat because he killed an American handicapped Jew.

This plane returned to Beirut where the hijacking ended. I wonder if you're thinking of an Egyptair flight evacuating the four Palestinian terrorists who took over the Achille Lauro. Reagan scrambled F-14s and forced the flight down at a NATO base in Sicily. I guess NATO and Italy are friendly, but I understand there were some tense confrontations at the base, and we let the Carabinieri take custody and Italy prosecute. The fate of the hijackers per wiki.

##Ahmad Marrouf al-Assadi disappeared in 1991 while on parole, but in 1994 was known to Spanish authorities, during the trial of Monzer al-Kassar.[Note 2]

##Bassam al-Asker was granted parole in 1991. He was thought to have died on February 21, 2004, but according to the Lebanese Daily Star, he had instead fled the country. He spent 14 years in Iraq, training Palestinian militiamen to fight the US army alongside Iraqi rebels, before travelling to the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp in Lebanon, where he resided as of 2007.[12]

##Ibrahim Fatayer Abdelatif was sentenced to 30 years' imprisonment. He served 20 and three more on parole and on July 7, 2008, he was expelled from an illegal immigrant detention center in Rome. He plans to appeal this, arguing that he has nowhere else to go since Lebanon will not allow his return as he was born in a refugee camp and is thus not a Lebanese citizen.

##Youssef Majed al-Molqi, convicted of killing Leon Klinghoffer, was sentenced to 30 years. He left the Rebibbia prison in Rome on February 16, 1996, on a 12-day furlough and fled to Spain, where he was recaptured and extradited back to Italy. On April 29, 2009, Italian officials released him from prison early, for good behaviour.[13] In June 2009, however, al-Molqui's attorney told the Associated Press that the Italian authorities had placed his client in a holding cell and were about to deport him to Syria.[14] According to several sources, the head of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, was personally involved in al-Moliqui's release, although this was officially denied.[citation needed]

The pic of Hillary in a Chadour grinning ear to ear should be circulated throughout the 2016 race, caption underneath. “At this point what difference does it make?”
