So this little history tidbit was posted as "Today In History" and I am throwing the bullshit flag. This is nowhere near enough info.
"In 1985, four Palestinian terrorists commandeered the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro with 511 passengers and crew off Egypt and threatened to blow it up unless Israel freed Palestinian prisoners. The hijackers, who surrendered in Port Said two days later, killed an American passenger."
Why is this so whitewashed?
They didn't *kill* him....they *murdered* him! They (filthy, murdering, Islamic, nutjob terrorists) *murdered* an American. An American in a wheelchair, so add cowardly to the description above. And isn't it worth the effort to add his name? Christ! His name was Leon Klinghoffer.
Leon Klinghoffer, American.
