English Language EXCLUSIVE: Jimmy Carter Meets w/ Fadlallah, Hezbo Spiritual Leader Who Ordered Bombing of U.S. Marines; Hezbo Defeat Only Temporary

By Debbie Schlussel
You’ve probably read all of the stories celebrating that the Hezbollah-Michel Aoun coalition in Lebanon lost (relatively speaking) in the recent Lebanese elections. But the celebrations are unfounded, as the loss is only temporary. Hezbollah’s power in Lebanon (along with its population numbers) continues to grow, and it controls the Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabbih Berri, as well as several Lebanese government cabinet positions and government ministries.
But what you didn’t hear about is that former U.S. President Jimmy Carter–who previously met with and feted top HAMAS officials–just met with Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, the spiritual leader of Hezbollah. Carter’s son, James, accompanied him, and the meeting took place in Beirut. (Carter was in Lebanon ostensibly as an “impartial” election monitor and observer. But he was hardly impartial.)


Jimmy Carter Meets w/ Fadlallah Who Ordered Mass Murder of Americans
At the time that I write this, Carter’s meeting with Fadlallah was reported only on the Arabic language March 14th Coalition website–the site of the coalition of Christians, Druze, and Sunni Muslims who were victorious in the Lebanese elections.
As a former American President, Carter’s meeting with Fadlallah is far more of an outrage than his meeting with HAMAS, because he could argue (falsely) that HAMAS hasn’t attacked America or targeted Americans (even though HAMAS did, in fact, kill Americans). With Hezbollah, it’s a different story, and especially Fadlallah. As I’ve noted time and again on this site, Fadlallah is not only Hezbollah’s top guy (as opposed to Hassan Nasrallah, whose leadership is only temporary and at the will of Iran). Fadlallah is the man who personally ordered and okayed the bombing mass murders of over 300 U.S. Marines and officials, with the attacks on the Marine barracks and U.S. Embassy in 1983. The fatwah for this was issued by him.
That a former U.S. President would meet with and shake the hands of a man who ordered the mass murder of U.S. servicemen (while they slept) and officials is disgusting. But nothing is beyond the pale with Jimmy Carter. If it’s anti-American, anti-Semitic, or pan-terrorist, he does it. And this encapsulates all three in one fell swoop.
Frankly, this is an act of treason. Hezbollah is a designated terrorist group and Fadlallah is a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, both such designations from the U.S. government. Jimmy Carter is going out of his way to give aid and comfort to the enemy.
Moreover, as I’ve noted many times on this site, Fadlallah heads the Al-Mabarrat Association “charity,” which raises funds for Hezbollah “martyrs” (terrorists).

And all of this is even aside from Hezbollah’s other global attacks on others, including the mid-90s attack by Hezbollah on the Jewish community center and Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, which killed about 200 people combined.
**** UPDATE: Don’t assume for a second that Jimmy Carter’s meeting with Hezbollah’s top official is being done totally in a vacuum. I wouldn’t be surprised if this meeting was arranged in conjunction with Carter’s friend, President Barack Hussein Obama, in some entreaty to recognize Hezbollah as a legitimate political party.
As I noted several times on this site, President Bush did the same thing, sending Congressman Darrell Issa a/k/a Jihad Darrell to meet with his Hezbollah buddies, and the Bush Administration floated the idea of recognizing Hezbollah in a front page NYTimes story.
But this meeting with Fadlallah is about as bad as you can get when it comes to living Lebanese terrorists who’ve murdered Americans (fortunately, Imad Mughniyeh is dead, so Carter can’t meet with him, too).

The media spun this. The so called pro-Western bloc lost two seats from last year and Hezbollah lost one. So actually Hezbollah is one seat closer to the pro-Westen bloc.

Eventually that will happen. The Christians have lost their hegemony in the Lebanese state and are nowhere strong enough to check Hezbollah, the Druze are too far away to matter and the Sunnis are divided. That leaves the Shiites under Hezbollah ready for taking over Lebanon at some point down the road. In other words, the pro-Western coalition in Lebanon is living on borrowed time.

Dhimmi Carter, the man has never met a dictator he didn’t like. He’s ShamWow dude for the moslems.

If the US government had any self respect (everbody stop laughing), it would strip Carter of his citizenship and never let him back in.

Carter-what an ass

Debbie, off topic coincidentally today the Rev Wright resurfaced and there’s been a shooting at the Holocaust Museum in Washington. So the evil of Jew hatred is as virulent as ever. Did any one think apologizing to all those dead Jews in Germany would make it disappear for the living? We got a reality check today.

There’s also been a story on the wires, related to your post on Hezbollah that an Air France plane that went down in the Atlantic, may be the result of terrorist sabotage. Btw, Hezbollah has a strong presence in South America so if they wanted to send France a message this could have been one. But nothing will be known for sure until the plane’s black box is recovered and fully analyzed.

Carter has never come to grips with the fact that the office of President is not for life.

Debbie, you assume too much. Carter wouldn’t have shook his hand, Carter would have prostrated himself and kissed his feet.
Just as barry is doing with the muslim (third) world.
