Carter: Israel Kills Civilians to Blame Hezbollah

In a Washington Post editorial, Jimmy Carter claimed that Israel is purposely targeting innocent civilians to "punish" so they can blame it on Hamas and Hezbollah. And no, that’s not a joke…

It is inarguable that Israel has a right to defend itself against attacks on its citizens, but it is inhumane and counterproductive to punish civilian populations in the illogical hope that somehow they will blame Hamas and Hezbollah for provoking the devastating response. The result instead has been that broad Arab and worldwide support has been rallied for these groups, while condemnation of both Israel and the United States has intensified.
This is one of those posts that need no analysis. But I will say, just for the record, that Hezbollah is the terrorist organization that uses populated areas to launch attacks from and regularly uses human shields in the hopes to use their deaths as propaganda. But, of course, a terrorist sympathizer will ignore that simple reality and run head first, while looking to blame Israel, into the concrete wall of stupidity.
