I seem to have degenerated into name-calling (at least I tell you why) when it comes to certain Marxist Celebs and Elected Critters. Well, former President Jimmy Carter has spoken to Der Speigel, of which I have a snippet below:
SPIEGEL: You also mentioned the hatred for the United States throughout the Arab world which has ensued as a result of the invasion of Iraq. Given this circumstance, does it come as any surprise that Washington's call for democracy in the Middle East has been discredited?
Carter: No, as a matter of fact, the concerns I exposed have gotten even worse now with the United States supporting and encouraging Israel in its unjustified attack on Lebanon.
SPIEGEL: But wasn't Israel the first to get attacked?
Carter: 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. I do not think that's justified, no.
I am starting to see that these people are more dangerous to America than the terrorists. Their words and ideas need to be shared with the general public, so that they and their ideas may be fully discredited.
I think I can point to Jimmy Carter's attitude toward Israel to be very revealing about his innermost motivations.
