Achille Lauro hijacker moving to Syria

In April, I reported that Achille Lauro hijacker Youssef Magied al-Molqui had won 'early release' from an Italian prison, but that he was being expelled from Italy and had no place to go. Al-Molqui led the Achille Lauro hijacking in 1985, and was apparently the terrorist who shot wheelchair-bound American Leon Klinghoffer and ordered his body dumped into the sea. Tonight, al-Molqui has a new home: Syria has agreed to take him. He was being flown from Palermo to Rome on Saturday and from Rome he will be flown to Syria.

The United States apparently did not request his extradition.

Syria threatens to take back Golan by force.


I wonder if Syria recruited Youssef for the Golan endeavor...

Let's remember who Israel is being asked to given the Golan Heights back to: a country delighted to give sanctuary to the murderer of a Jew.

Hopenchange, any one?

I would not use the term unbelievable to describe this; sadly, it is par for the course.
