Dem Congressman Says US Should Have Given Hezbollah Security Guarantee
Me/East Brunswick Sentinel ^ | November 4 | Me / Rush Holt

Posted on 11/04/2006 3:58:32 PM PST by PghBaldy

Rush Holt (D-NJ), along with calling for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq, since according to him, we are doing no good, and aside from questioning the voting of our troops says something else stupid: We should have given security assurance to Hezballah - they only had guns because of mean old nasty Israel! Here is what he said to the East Brunswick Sentinel (11/2/06 by Chris Gaetano)

"We have been making no effort to get the international community and the Lebanese army to disarm Hezbollah, and of course the reason they are armed, they say, is they fear invasion from Israel and you know, we had done nothing to provide assurances that they didn't have to be armed," said Holt. "Certainly, once Israel was attacked and rockets were being lobbed into Israeli cities and communities and farms and kibbutzes, we have to condemn that. But it never should have gotten to that stage."

Could the reason they are armed be that they are TERRORISTS?

I hope this is OK. This is something not covered by the press, and completely outrageous. I am surprised it wasn't picked up. Maybe the reporter saw nothing wrong with the concept?

Add another anti-Semite Democrat to the list. He's on the side of the terrorists because he, like the terrorists, hates Jews.

Israel should have had the balls to do what they had to do within 2 weeks while we were 100% behind them. It is time they got rid of their socialist government.

The best guarantee against Israel is not to work for its destruction.

Most Democrats seem to have the notorious " head up the butt" disease.

Maybe we should have given Israel a Security gurantee. Did he ever think of that?? Dipstick.

No wonder he is in politics , he is too stupid to earn a living any other way.

He'll still get 80% of the Jewish vote. Or should I say JINO vote.

I don't know why it wasn't noticed by the reporter. I find it VERY disturbing. I sent it to Charles Johnson at LittleGreenFootballs & Drudge. Every little bit helps. Less than 3 days left till Tuesday.

outrageous, yes; surprising, now - the modern DemoncRAT party is incredibly anti-semetic. I notice that Barat's most well received lines for liberals is his anti-Jewish stance.

That was my first thought ~ not surprising that he hates American military personnel as well as Jews.

"W" really ought to lock this guy up ~ tonight would not be too soon. Someone like Holt is actually dangerous.

The DUmbasses in the lame-stream, has-been, drive-by dinosaur media have to cover Saddam's sentencing tomorrow.

If he's sentenced to DEATH, any further trials are moot and we are again reminded of why our troops are in Iraq - depose Saddam (or REGIME CHANGE as it was referred to when Clinton adopted it as policy, but did nothing more than lip service). DUmocrats wanted the election to be about Iraq, and so it is.

1. Jean-Fraud Kerry infers that soldiers in Iraq are dumb.

2. Soldiers respond

3. NYT admits Saddam had nuke program.

4. Families of fallen visit Iraq (no quagmire)

5. Saddam sentenced (death by wood chipper)

News cycle seems to be working for GOP advantage thus far. DUmocrats today counter with "Rusmsfeld must resign" and "recruiters caugh lying" stories. Wow. That's new....NOT!

In addition to Saddam sentencing, Fox will be running OBSESSION - THE MOVIE, and we get to see the face of the enemy today and tomorrow. Fox is also showing "waterboarding" (Steve Harrigan, a Fox reporter volunteered to show how it is done) all day today.

I don't know what Monday brings, but I've got a good idea about the day after.

He was claiming the system is not secure so all the military absentee ballots should be eliminated.

He was more concerned about quashing the Republican vote than about vote security though.

Rush Holt certainly isn't stupid. Holt was the Assistant Director of the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab at Princeton University, the University's largest research facility and the largest center for energy research in New Jersey.

Dear Hezbollah:

If you don't try to kill the Israelis, I guarantee they won't try to kill you back. I hope that makes you feel secure.
