This article from the Investor's Business Daily, which can be read here.

Exerpt 1:

Jimmy Carter says it's "inhumane and counterproductive" for Israel "to punish civilian populations" for Hezbollah's aggression. If you hadn't helped overthrow the Shah of Iran, Jimmy, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

Our former president made this statement in a Washington Post op-ed in which the man who helped midwife the habitat for inhumanity that is Iran spouted the standard liberal dogma about cease-fires and something called "lasting peace."

He forgets that Hezbollah is the spawn of Iran, and Iran is the spawn of his failed foreign policy. Carter, upon taking office in 1977, declared that advancing "human rights" was among his highest priorities. America's ally, the Shah of Iran, was one of his first targets, with Carter chastising him for his human rights record and withdrawing America's support.

When Ayatollah Khomeini overthrew the shah in February 1979, he established the first modern Islamofascist regime, a role model for the Taliban and the jihadists to follow, such as al-Qaida and Hezbollah.

I could not agree more with this correct assessment of history.

The following exerpt from this article talks about the violations of the Geneva Convention that Hezbollah are violating:

Hezbollah is violating Article 58 of Protocol 1 of the Geneva Conventions, which requires parties to a conflict to "avoid locating military objectives within or near densely populated areas." Hezbollah uses civilian homes and neighborhoods to store and launch rockets.

Article 28 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: "The presence of a protected person may not be used to render certain points or areas immune from military operations." This means that the building in Qana where Hezbollah was hiding its launchers was a legitimate military target.

Article 37 of Protocol 1, ratified in 1979, says: "It is prohibited to kill, injure or capture an adversary by resort to perfidy." It lists three types of perfidy; the third is "the feigning of civilian, noncombatant status." That is what Hezbollah does when it disguises its fighters as civilians and hides and launches missiles in Qana and elsewhere.

Open Letter to Jimmy Carter: These are the people you expect to negotiate a lasting peace with?. You are truly an ignorant idealist, and it would be wise for you to keep your mouth shut. Go shell some peanuts or run the gas station (presuming you are intelligent enough to do that), and leave the world's problems to those who are capable and willing to face the problem of terrorism head on. Go Away. Good luck in your retirement.
