They all look the same anyways, right?

February 28, 2008 § 2 Comments

This man —

is not this man —

but some media institutions and “terrorism experts” can’t tell the difference between Abbas al-Musawi (top photo) and Hassan Nasrallah (bottom photo).

Musawi was the second secretary general of Hezbullah and Nasrallah is the current secretary general.

The Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism might have a better shot at preventing “terrorism” if they could actually identify the supposed terrorists. Their information page on Hassan Nasrallah labels the poster below as a “poster of Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah,” but it is actually Ragheb al-Harb on the left and Musawi on the right.

The group took the above image from PBS who also erroneously labeled Musawi as Nasrallah, but it seems PBS is a repeat offender. In this web-version of a FrontLine documentary from 2004, the poster below of Musawi is labeled again as Nasrallah. They have had four years to correct this error!
