Der Appeaser unt Der Displeaser

Jimmah Carter said in an interview with the uber-Deutsch Der Spiegel that Amerca and Israel “stand alone” because of our insistence that the terrorists in Hezbollah should be degraded and that their extra-constitutional militia does not trump the democratically elected government of Lebanon and numerous UN Resolutions. Saith Jimmah:

“I don’t think that Israel has any legal or moral justification for their massive bombing of the entire nation of Lebanon. What happened is that Israel is holding almost 10,000 prisoners, so when the militants in Lebanon or in Gaza take one or two soldiers, Israel looks upon this as a justification for an attack on the civilian population of Lebanon and Gaza.”

So, it’s OK to take a military expedition over another country’s border, kill 8 soldiers, and abduct two who may actually be dead in order to achieve one’s political ends, Jimmah? How ’bout Israel’s right to self-defense? Or what about the mandate to enforce clear UN Resolutions that apply to your border? Perhaps, Jimmah’s big plans have finally been revealed: don’t overthrow the Ayatollah with a few well placed bombs back in 1980 in hopes that one day Iran can sponsor a region-wide jihadist movement to debunk Western clout in world affairs. Maybe? Probably not.

It’s either that or Jimmah has clearly taken sides in the War on Terror with America as the bad guy. Read the rest of the article for some proof of this attitude in his responses.

Does it surprise me that Jimmah could take such a knee-jerk reaction to this conflict on the side of Hezbollah rather than Israel? No. It’s just sad that a former US President is a terrorist sympathizer– and clearly part of the appeasement movement. He’s also part of a larger problem that turns many in that region away from clearly viewing this issue without stirring anti-Israeli and anti-American sentiments. Heck, the farmer next door in Zanjan gets his goat run over by a wheelbarrow and chants of “death to America” ring throughout the local mosques for weeks! Now this? It’s sad, but at least he’s consistent. In my view, Jimmah is now firmly ensconced as a certified “Moonbat.”
