Yesterday, the Supreme Court upheld a federal law barring material support for foreign terrorist organizations. And right on time, America’s favorite useful idiot has come out swinging against it. Jimmy Carter is upset because, with this federal law upheld, he won’t be able to pal around with his buddies in Hamas and Hezbollah anymore.
Cue the tiny little violin playing:
Former President Jimmy Carter has voiced concern that Monday’s Supreme Court ruling on “material support” to terrorist groups may criminalize his “work to promote peace and freedom.”
Carter, whose advocacy has entailed contact with groups designated by the U.S. government as “foreign terrorist organizations” (FTOs) – notably Hamas and Hezbollah – said he was disappointed by the court decision.
… Arguing that there can be no peace in the region without those groups’ participation, Carter has reached out to Hamas and Hezbollah, rejecting criticism that doing so could be viewed as legitimizing their violent activities. Since the 1980s both groups have killed hundreds of people in suicide bombings and other terror attacks, most of them Israelis and Americans.
Some people argue that organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah need help to overcome their murderous tendencies; that with advocacy and humanitarian support, they’ll see the error of their ways and turn to peace. These people, Jimmy Carter being one of them, are delusional. The reality is that there is no logical reasoning you can use to persuade the illogical, bloodthirsty murderers who make up these foreign terrorist organizations to become peaceful. Hamas, for example, has murdered hundreds (if not thousands) of innocent Israelis and Americans. Hezbollah wants to round up all Jews and put them in Israel so that they can be slaughtered. (Remember this blood-chilling exchange between David Horowitz and an MSA student at UCSD?)
The reality is that you cannot reason with people who are drunk on bloodlust; you cannot reason with people who advocate genocide and murder. To think that an organization like Hamas or Hezbollah can be made to be peaceful is delusional and potentially dangerous.
This federal law was put in place for a reason, and the Supreme Court should be commended for upholding it. Jimmy Carter may very well be working for peace (although I personally doubt it) but to give material support to a foreign terrorist organization is — prepare yourself for a shocking concept — supporting a terrorist organization. Oh, sure. You might be giving money to Hamas, and they might use it for humanitarian relief in Gaza. But now, Hamas has extra money they would have had to spend on food and supplies that they can now spend on weapons to kill Israelis. Not only that, but anyone who gives support to an organization of any kind is condoning the actions taken by that organization. It’s been pretty clear for quite some time that Jimmy Carter condones Hamas’ and Hezbollah’s terrorist activities, try as he might to spin the truth to appear otherwise. Why would someone knowingly give material support to a genocidal organization who regularly murders innocent people if they didn’t support those actions?
If Jimmy Carter really was interested in furthering peace, he wouldn’t be giving support to terrorist organizations. He wouldn’t be enabling them to continue their campaign of bloodlust against Israel and the Jews. It’s shameful that Jimmy Carter would so blatantly side with terrorist organizations over not only his own country, but also the only functioning democracy in the Middle East. But then, anything that exposes Jimmy Carter as the anti-American, anti-Semitic, pro-terrorist scumbag he is should be trumpeted across the country for everyone to hear.
