Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, John Brennan, recently told a Washington conference that Hezbollah is a "very interesting organization." He made these remarks after returning from Lebanon where he met with Lebanese officials.
While at this conference, Brennan "praised" the so-called evolution of the terrorist organization when he stated that Hezbollah evolved from a "purely a terrorist organization to a militia to an organization that now has members within the parliament and the cabinet."
Brennan intends to work with the supposed moderate elements within Hezbollah not its extremist members.
We certainly have a serious problem on our hands when the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism refers to a vicious terrorist organization as "very interesting" and also has adopted the canard perpetuated by Hezbollah that they are primarily a political organization.
Contrary to Brennan's glorified expectation of a 'moderate' Hezbollah, the terrorist organization is refilling its stockpile of weapons in blatant violation of UN resolution 1701 in order to position itself to launch new rocket attacks on Israel.
When Brennan travels to Lebanon to meet with the 'moderate' elements of Hezbollah, the other members of the organization will be getting the "last laugh" as they will be underground surreptitiously preparing their next attack.
Statements made by people like Brennan have the certain power to cause a change in one's worldview.
What is the greatest threat to world security?
Are the terrorist organizations themselves the biggest threat or could the threat be a U.S. government that because of political correctness is falling asleep at the wheel by refusing to recognize that terrorism is not synonymous with moderation.
Mr. Brennan, Hezballah and its vast network spearheaded by the teachings of radical Islam, has only one goal and that is the destruction of both America and Israel. Moderation plays no part in that goal.
By referring to Hezbollah as 'moderate,' Brennan and others who share this viewpoint give these organizations legitimacy which is another weapon that they use in their war against America and Israel.
Finally Mr. Brennan, if you are not aware of Hezbollah's true motives of destruction, below is a short video of Hezbollah in action for your perusal.
