”Today, Iran’s emboldened mullahs are on a triumphant roll, waging a bloody, three-front proxy war against us, using the Mahdi army to assassinate dreams of peace and democracy in Iraq, using Hezbollah to blow up those same dreams in Lebanon, again, and using Hamas to make a grotesque mockery of them in the Holy Land. Now they threaten to activate Hezbollah terror cells, here in America and throughout the world, to kill and maim us at home and inflict more carnage on our allies. This week, they mocked our efforts to prevent them from becoming a nuclear power, announcing that nothing we do — in the U.N. or elsewhere — will stop them from going nuclear, and sharing their WMDs with other rogue states and Islamofascist terror groups at will. More ominous yet, they threaten to unleash an apocalyptic surprise on us on August 22, the night they believe Mohammed lit up the skies by ascending to heaven from the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.”

Jimmy Carter wrote:The urgent need in Lebanon is that Israeli attacks stop, the nation's regular military forces control the southern region, Hezbollah cease as a separate fighting force, and future attacks against Israel be prevented. Israel should withdraw from all Lebanese territory, including Shebaa Farms, and release the Lebanese prisoners. Yet yesterday, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert rejected a cease-fire.
Jimmy Carter wrote:There will be no substantive and permanent peace for any peoples in this troubled region as long as Israel is violating key U.N. resolutions, official American policy and the international "road map" for peace by occupying Arab lands and oppressing the Palestinians.
Jimmy Carter wrote:A major impediment to progress is Washington's strange policy that dialogue on controversial issues will be extended only as a reward for subservient behavior and will be withheld from those who reject U.S. assertions.

” If you had told an Englishman on Sept. 10, 2001, that within five years all hand luggage would be banned on flights from Britain, he'd have thought you were a kook. If you'd told an Englishwoman that all liquids would be banned except milk for newborn babies that could only be taken on board if the adult accompanying the child drinks from the bottle in front of a security guard, she'd have scoffed and said no one would ever put up with such a ludicrous imposition. But now it's here. What other changes will the Islamists have wrought in another five years?
Absent a determination to throttle the ideology, we're about to witness the unraveling of the world.“

demand for territory - namely, the Shaba Farms - via acts of aggression.
Moreover, by allowing Lebanon to make territorial claims on Israel despite
the fact that in 2000 the UN determined that Israel had withdrawn to the
international border, the resolution sets a catastrophic precedent for the
* Though Israel had demanded an an arms embargo against Hizbullah, this
issue is put off to a vague date in the future - and the power to oversee
such an embargo is placed in the hands of the Lebanese government, of which
Hizbullah is a member.
* The resolution calls upon Israel to withdraw all of its forces from
southern Lebanon even before Lebanese and UNIFIL forces are fully deployed
in the area - creating a vacuum allowing Hizbullah to reinforce its
positions in south Lebanon.

the disarming of Hezbollah has been brought to discussion in the Lebanese government today, and officially postponed indefinitely, in other words, it won't happen.
