Winston Churchill is throwing up in his grave.
The word “hero” is misused in the media on a daily basis. Football players, however good they may be, are not heroes; actors, however dashing, are not heroes; politicians, however bold they may be, are not heroes. Bob Curry, 64, known as “Backdoor Bob” after being first to storm the Iranian Embassy in London during the 1980 siege, put his life on the line to save others — he is a hero.
He is also homeless.
Meanwhile, the only terrorist to survive the SAS raid to free the hostages, Fowzi Nejad, 61, now lives at the British taxpayers’ expense in a London apartment. More here.
This is how the the twisted “Human Rights” ideology of the left pans out. The wrongdoers, the law breakers, those who seek to destroy our culture, or civilization — they get the plaudits and the treasure. The heroes are left by the wayside. If we in the West are going to survive and pass on our heritage to our descendants, we have to learn to put ourselves first — period. All cultures are not equal, all Faiths do not embrace the same ideals; we should not tolerate, let alone pander to those who bring us nothing but death and hate.
Iranian Embassy SAS hero who is now homeless says terrorist in 1980 siege ‘should still be in prison’ and NOT in a council house
- SAS hero Bob Curry, 64, became homeless after the collapse of his business
- Known as ‘Backdoor Bob’ after being first to storm Iranian embassy during siege
- He approached Herefordshire Council but it failed to provide accommodation
- But one of terrorists, Fowzi Nejad, 61, currently enjoys a ‘playboy’ life on benefits
By Keiligh Baker for MailOnline, 22 January 2018:
A former SAS soldier who became a national hero following the 1980 Iranian Embassy siege said today the only terrorist to survive the raid should still be in prison – as he slammed his local council for leaving him homeless.
Bob Curry, 64, who became known as ‘Backdoor Bob’ after being photographed storming the embassy, served for 16 years in the Special Air Service and had a 17-year military career.
But despite his service to his country he is now forced to sleep on his daughter’s sofa and in a B&B paid for by his old regiment after he lost his home.

Mr Curry, who appeared on Good Morning Britain today, revealed how he has been forced to sell off his medals and says he has been stuck in a constant battle with Herefordshire Council after becoming homeless.
Meanwhile Fowzi Nejad, 61, the only terrorist to survive the siege in 1980, cannot be sent back to Iran because of human rights laws so instead lives in Peckham, south London.
The 61-year-old has a plush flat with its own balcony, and as of May was living rent-free. The chain-smoker became eligible for parole three years ago after serving 28 years in jail and his application was approved in October 2008.
Mr Curry, a former sergeant, who has had two heart attacks and is registered disabled and a diabetic, saw action during the Falklands War and also served in Northern Ireland.
He became penniless after the breakdown of his marriage and the loss of his home following the collapse of his business, which taught veterans to become locksmiths, in July.
When asked about Nejad today, he replied: ‘As far as I’m concerned he should still be in prison. He murdered people in this country.’
Mr Curry, circled, used a sledgehammer to break a window in the central London building to free the staff there being held by gunmen. The the n 27-year-old special forces soldier was called upon to carry out the potentially deadly mission when an explosive that was meant to blow a ground floor window in failed to explode. He ran forward, kicked the charge out of the way, smashed the window with a single blow and was the first to climb inside
Mr Curry, who helped to save 19 hostages during the embassy siege, said: ‘If it wasn’t for the legion, I would be sleeping in my car or on a park bench.
He also revealed that in one of the B&Bs he has stayed in since he became homeless he had to ask permission to go to the toilet.
He said: ‘I had limited company from 1989 to last year, but when the MoD pulled the contract it all snowballed from there. I was left homeless on the streets and it went form bad to worse.
‘I got £20,000 for medals but it all went into the business.
‘It was heartbreaking because I was awarded them by this great country we live in. And it’s not just me. It’s the other veterans – the 13,00 of them living on the street.
‘They were normal people when they went into the military. We owe them a debt of gratitude.’
