Iran Names US Embassy Hostage-Taker as New UN Ambassador

Now ain't that a slap in the face.

Iran has named Hamid Aboutalebi as its new ambassador to the U.N., according to a Bloomberg report.

While Aboutalebi served as Iran’s ambassador to Italy and Belgium, he’s most famous for being one of militants that held 52 Americans hostage in Tehran for 444 days in 1979.

Iran has applied for a visa for Aboutalebi, so he can enter the US to serve in the UN. UN requirements obligate the US to provide him with a visa.

With President Obama trying to build a relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran, some would say this appointment, and the visa request, is a slap in the face of the American people.

  4. I don’t understand the U.S. flag. Shouldn’t that be the U.N. flag or are you showing your Tea Party anti-Obama bias again?

  5. POLYGAMY, THE RABBI SHOULD KNOW BETTER
    THE RABBI SHOULD KNOW BETTER ; ALL WOMEN ARE ACTUALLY -HARMLESSLY- BISEXUAL ;

    AS ONE WHO HAS RETURNED FROM THE DEAD, I CAN AFFIRM THAT THERE IS A DEFINITE PURPOSE -ONE FAR BEYOND WHAT OUR LIMITED HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS MINDS CAN FIGURE OUT, ONE THAT I DONT KNOW, ONLY VAGUELY SENSE [IN THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN....]. BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN WE SHOULD STOP TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT AND TRYING TO LEARN IT

    Israel Meir Kin is a threat to all Jewish women (SAYS) Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky
    Israel Meir Kin (LOOKS LIKE ME -AND I HAVE BLUE EYES TOO- AND MY COUSIN THE HOLLYWOOD MOVIE AND TV STAR DENNIS DAY. AND WE ARE (WERE IN DENIS’ CASE) ROMAN CATHOLICS. ALL BLUE EYED AND RED HAIRED PEOPLE ARE CLOSE COUSINS)
    A little over a thousand years ago, Rabbenu Gershom of Mainz, the leading scholar of Ashkenazi Jewry, enacted bold legal measures to protect Jewish women from abuse. (PEOPLE THEN WERE NOT AWARE OF THE ROLES THAT THE COLLECTIVE FEMININE AND THE COLLECTIVE MASCULINE PLAY IN LIFE)
    Last week a fellow named Israel Meir Kin poked his finger in Rabbenu Gershom’s eye, and now every Jewish woman is at risk.
    In his day, Rabbenu Gershom began to notice a disturbing and outrageous trend. Husbands, who found that they now fancied another woman, were taking advantage of the Biblical law allowing them to divorce their wives unilaterally and virtually without cause. And with the stroke of a pen, and the cold delivery of a divorce document, they were shattering the lives of their wives and families. Rabbenu Gershom strode into the breach and proclaimed a ban of excommunication against any man who divorced his wife without her consent. And to insure these husbands who lusted after another woman wouldn’t simply marry their new love without divorcing their first wives, he placed the same ban of excommunication on any man who married more than one wife, effectively ending the practice of polygamy (WRONG, ESPECIALLY TODAY) in Ashkenaz. Rabbenu Gershom was determined that Jewish women would no longer be subject to this kind of abuse at the hands of their husbands. (ABUSE AND MISUNDERSTANDING GO BOTH WAYS -AS THE COLLECTIVE FEMININE AND THE COLLECTIVE MASCULINE MANDATE AND DIRECT)
    In our day, Israel Meir Kin has undone Rabbenu Gershom’s work. This past Thursday, as about 30 of us stood in protest, he blatantly violated Rabbenu Gershom’s ban, by marrying a second woman without divorcing his wife. As if it were not enough that for the past 9 years he has spitefully been refusing to grant a Jewish divorce to his wife Lonna (allegedly unless she were to pay him hundreds of thousands of dollars), he has now completed his journey of shame by toppling the age-old ban on polygamy. (See the articles in this past Saturday’s New York Times, and the Jewish Journal.
    Make no mistake. Israel Meir Kin’s actions are not merely outrageous and despicable. His actions threaten all of our daughters and all of our sisters (AT THE COLLECTIVE FEMININE’S DIRECTION). I can guarantee you that at this very moment there are men who are watching, waiting to see whether Israel Meir Kin gets away with this. And if he does, there will be more Israel Meir Kins. And every single married Jewish woman will be shorn of the protection Rabbenu Gershom had afforded women for the past millennium.
    If you know Israel Meir Kin, a physician’s assistant now residing in Las Vegas, Nevada, or if you know someone who knows him, you must act now. Bring whatever legal form of social or economic pressure to bear on him that you can. This is a moment that has the potential to wreak havoc and misery for generations to come. Unless we act to stop it.
    ALL WOMEN ARE ACTUALLY -HARMLESSLY- BISEXUAL. MEN ARE NOT. LESBIANISM IS WRONG -AS IS HOMOSEXUALITY- BUT THE LATTER IS DEVASTATINGLY CRIPPLING AS WELL

  6. Steve Brown says:

    An overwhelming number of Jews voted for Mr. Obama. The same number will vote for Hillary in 2016. Is there some surprise here ?

  7. Earl W. Littlefield Jr says:

    Obama welcomes all terrorists. Only Christians are excluded……

  8. This is beyond outrageous.

  9. Run Guo says:

    Current US govt deserves a slap.

  10. Ti,me for the US Jews to wake up.
    Hitlery will bne no better, maybe even worse that Obama as far as Israel is concerned.
    Remember that she got the Jewish vote for the Senate on the promise to support Israel. But when she was appointed Sec of State, she showed her hatred of Israel and Jews. never forget what she did when PM Netanyahu arrived at the conference in the naval base (name??) and told Netanyahu that the Arabs said that Israel must niot walk thru the same door (main door) as the Arab delegation, but must enter thru the servants quarters.
    What did Hitkery do, She did exactly what the Arabs told her.
    If you think that Obama is bad, in comparison, Hitlery will make him look like an angel.
    Stop beong loyal to the Dems. They are far from loyal to the Jews and their best friend in the entire ME.,
    Israel.
