Zionist Radiation Beams? Yup, Sounds Like Zelaya

“We are being threatened with death,” he told the Herald. And he predicted that soon, mercenaries would storm the embassy to assassinate him. The Herald article does not say if Zelaya was referring to the same Israeli mercenaries that were bombarding him with high-frequency radiation -- but in Mel’s World, the possibilities are endless and nothing can be too outrageous.

This latest development may seem bizarre to those who are not aware of Zelaya’s eccentricities, but to the Honduran people and to those that have followed his colorful career, it is but another fantastic chapter in the Mel Zelaya saga.

The wannabe presidente for life of Honduras has never been known to be a low-key individual. In fact, the larger-than-life persona he created for himself has always been a source of pride for him. He finds nothing peculiar in his fetish for leather vests, cowboy boots, and the ten-gallon cowboy hats he wears everywhere. Neither does it bother him that although he is 56-years-old, you would be hard-pressed to find a single gray hair on his head or on his trademark bushy mustache. Life in exile these past few weeks may have been rough for this boisterous politician, but at least he has not had to go without his Just For Men hair coloring treatments.

This high regard for himself and his appearance even led Mel to commission an artist to create a life-sized fiberglass sculpture of him so he could admire his own greatness in three dimensions.


But Mel’s story is not just about personality quirks and fantastical stories of Israeli mercenaries. His tale also includes collusion with President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela in aiding drug traffickers. He has been accused by Honduran authorities of stealing millions of dollars from the Honduran Treasury, and shortly after he was deposed, computers were found in his residence with the results of a vote for the illegal constitutional referendum that never took place. Not surprisingly, the rigged voting results indicated an overwhelming victory for Zelaya’s reform.

Yet with all his peculiarities and criminal activities, the Obama administration, the UN, the OAS, and the EU have all joined hands with the likes of Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez to call for his reinstatement. According to these supporters, what is best for Honduras is the leadership of an egocentric criminal who believes he is being attacked by Israeli mercenaries using high-frequency radiation.

One would like to think that such a prestigious and law-abiding group of nations and world organizations would avoid and denounce a character such as Zelaya. But as we have already learned, anything is possible in Mel’s World.
