Taking Hezbollah Off List, National Post, August 21, 2006

The Conservative Party may very well win a majority government next election because people like me will vote for them for the first time in droves even though their social policies are anathema to us i.e. people who think the policies, statements and actions of the Liberals and NDP re the Middle East are absolutely idiotic, naive, ignorant, bankrupt and dangerous to us all. For elected representatives to call for the removal of Hezbollah from the list of banned organizations is beyond belief. Mr. Wrzesnewskyj, Ms. Nash and the others should be drummed out of their parties for their stupidity.

Hezbollah members are religious and ideological fanatics who want nothing more than the destruction of Israel (and also the annihilation of the West for that matter) and who will stop at nothing to achieve their aims. You don’t negotiate with people like that because negotiation isn’t possible. You crush them because you have to for your own survival. Arabs and others who truly want peace will remove Hezbollah from the equation, not legitimize it by offering support and encouragement. Members of Parliament who don’t understand this aren’t fit to hold office and at the very least are an embarassment to us all.
