The Achille Lauro Hijacking

Link here

The morning of Oct 7, four members of the Palestine Liberation Front, or PLF, walked out of cabin 82, and into the main dining room, where a small number of passengers were. The majority of the passengers were off the ship in Alexandria, Egypt, on a tour of the area when the terrorists attacked. Walking into the room, they began firing their weapons at random, wounding two people before stopping. Armed with AK-47s, grenades, and handguns, the four terrorists gathered up the 320 crewmen and 80 remaining passengers, and began seperating them by nationality. The American and British hostages were placed together and surrounded with oil drums, which the terrorists threatened to light on fire. They then ordered the ships Captain to set sail for the Syrian port of Tartus.

The demands of the terrorist were simple. They wanted the release of 50 Palestinians being held by the Israeli government. Negotiations were already being held Tuesday morning. The Syrian government, after having consulted the American and Italian governments, denied the Achille Lauro permission to dock at the port in Tartus. This is when the terrorists took action.

The terrorists took Leon Klinghoffer, a 69 year old retired Jewish businessman from New York, who was confined to a wheelchair after being partially paralyzed by two strokes, and threw him overboard, after having shot him in the head and chest. The terrorists then ordered the ship to sail for the ships original destination of Port Said in Egypt, since attempts to dock in Cyprus were also met with denial.

Leon Klinghoffer's body was found several days later, when it washed up on a Syrian beach.

The terrorists took Leon Klinghoffer, a 69 year old retired Jewish businessman from New York, who was confined to a wheelchair after being partially paralyzed by two strokes, and threw him overboard, after having shot him in the head and chest. The terrorists then ordered the ship to sail for the ships original destination of Port Said in Egypt, since attempts to dock in Cyprus were also met with denial.

Truely the epitomy of Palestinian bravery. If only they served pizza on cruise ships in those days, what Yasser could have accomplished.
