Carter: Poor Hezbollah Has No Anti-Aircraft Weapons

(#TCOT)

Read former President Jimmy Carter’s own account of his recent trip to Paris, Lebanon, and Syria and see if you don’t agree.  Of course, this is just another page in a long history of Carter’s demonization of Israel and defense of terrorist organizations.

Carter heaped praise on Lebanese, Syrian, and even Hezbollah officials and uses the report to create a portrait of these three groups working to achieve peace.  At the same time, he never misses an opportunity to give the reader the impression that Israel is the only thing standing in the way of a peaceful Middle East.

Contrast the following two quotes taken directly from Carter’s report:

Hezbollah refrained from meeting with us but expressed approval of our election monitoring. The big issue was that Syria and Lebanon were moving toward mutual diplomatic recognition and exchange of ambassadors after decades of Syria’s assumption that there was no boundary between the two.

and

Israelis are also occupying the northern (Lebanese) 2/3 of a small village named Garjaa. The general showed us a graph of the many flights of Israeli planes over all parts of Lebanon, averaging about a dozen each day. Neither Hezbollah nor the Lebanese Armed Forces have any anti-aircraft weapons for defense.

No mention of past Syrian attempts to assasinate Lebanese political leaders. No mention of Syrian assistance to Iran in supplying Hezbollah terrorists with the weapons to practice their trade. Reading Carter’s words leads one to believe the conflicts between Lebanon and Syria amount to little more than two schoolboys arguing over a cheap toy.

Carter also fails to mention Hezbollah’s offensive attacks against Israel that led to the 2006 war and resulted in the current Israeli military operations along the border.  To lament the fact these terrorist dogs lack anti-aircraft weapons is unexpected, even from someone as anti-Israeli as Carter.  But there it is, in his own words.  Carter is saddened by the fact that Hezbollah terrorists can’t shoot down Israeli planes!

Carter evidently doesn’t remember when Israel pulled out of Lebanon, after 20 years of occupation, that Hezbollah swooped in and filled the vacuum.  The same Hezbollah that was controlled and assisted by Iran and Syria and the same Hezbollah that lauched the attacks that started the 2006 war. 

Then after all of this ridiculous nonsense Carter has spewed, he closes with a paragraph that intentionally paints the terrorist organization Hamas as a harmless group of professionals.  Yes, Hamas.  Here, read the quote that makes my stomach turn and destroys any previous illusion I held that Carter was a good man who simply had some mistaken views…

In the afternoon Bob, Hrair, and I met with Khaled Mashaal and his fellow Hamas politburo members, all of whom are scientists, medical doctors, or engineers – none trained in religion.

Is it not unbelievable that a man in Carter’s position would intentionally mislead the world into thinking that Hamas is not an organization run by and consisting of radical Islamic terrorists?

In the past I thought of Carter as a good man with many opinions that I simply disagreed with.  After reading these words, his own words, I am now convinced that he is an evil man, an anti-Semite whose vision of the world is skewed by the glasses of racism and bigotry–against Jews.
