The US and Hezbollah are in secret indirect talks managed by London dealing with the fight against Al-Qaida, regional stability and other Lebanese political issues.
Senior British diplomatic sources, quoted in a report in Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai on Wednesday, said British diplomats are holding discussions with leaders of the Lebanese organization and transferring the information to the Americans.Hezbollah is, of course, an Islamist organization that hopes to install al-Sharia as the basis of government. Al-Sharia, needless to say, oppresses women, calls for the murder of gay people outright, and seeks the domination of all non-Muslims within the historic system of persecution and exploitation known as dhimmitude. It is also a terrorist organization in that it has targeted perfectly innocent people for death based on their religion and heritage. And let us not forget, of course, that Hezbollah was behind the 1983 bombing of United States marine baracks in Beirut that killed 241 American GIs.
The discussions “are aimed at keeping tabs on the changes in the region and the world, and prepare for the upcoming return of Iran to the international community,” according to diplomatic sources in Washington.
Because the US, unlike the UK, recognizes both the political and military wings of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization and refuses to distinguish between them, US officials cannot legally meet with any member of the party. But according to the sources, the US is willing to hear the views of the party and “warm up to a direct relationship in the future.”
And now, under Obama, the US wants to “warm up to a direct relationship in the future” with this vile organization.
This represents yet another example of the lengthening list of ways in which the Obama administration has clearly and consistently and persistently supported the rise of political Islam throughout the Middle East, if not throughout the world, more generally.
The administration's focus on al-Qaeda is a red herring. Al-Qaeda is just one organization among others that call for the Jihad against the west, and for the genocide of the Jews, but in its ideology, if not its tactics, it shares the same goals as the Muslim Brotherhood - out of which it was born - and Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the various Salafist organizations, and, yes, Hezbollah.
One of the reasons that Obama's foreign policy in the Middle East is so counterproductive is because of the central contradiction that resides at its heart. In one breath Obama hypocritically condemns Qaeda and in the next he bolsters all the other major organizations that support Qaeda's ultimate goal of imposing Sharia wherever possible and on violently confronting the west whenever possible.
Finally, let us not forget that it was Hezbollah chief, Hassan Nasrallah, who said, "If they [the Jews] all gather in Israel it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide."
And this is who Obama wants to warm up relations with?
I know that Obama's ostrich-like Jewish sycophants, like the vicious nitwit who ran the failed Progressive Zionist blog, will make excuses for anything that Obama says or does, but how it is that they can continue to support a president of the United States that consistently undermines their own interests, not to mention the general well-being of the Jewish people throughout the world, remains hard to grasp within any rational assessment of his behavior viz-a-viz Jews or viz-a-viz the Jewish State of Israel. They might argue that because this is not about direct discussions with Hezbollah that it is much ado over nothing, but if the report is true it is an indication of just where this administration is headed.
The Obama administration needs to be reminded that just as one cannot support the Muslim Brotherhood and still claim to be a friend of the Jewish people, so one cannot support Hezbollah and claim to be a friend of the Jewish people.
Until such a time as Islamist organizations give up the Koranically-based Jew Hatred which resides at the heart of their religious tradition, no western politician can be supportive of them and still expect the friendship and backing of the Jewish people.
And, yet, they do and the majority of us, at least in the United States, still kiss their feet.
