Italy: Hezbullah, Hamas not al-Qaeda

And these are the idiots we are entrusting to keep the peace in Lebanon.

Italian foreign minister Massimo D'Alema said in an interview with Corriere della Sera published Tuesday that Hezbullah and Hamas are not terror organizations like al-Qaeda.

"Besides their well-known responsibilities for terrorist actions, they have a political side, they are engaged in assistance."

"IRA and ETA have become political movements from (being) terror groups," D'Alema said, referring to groups that have carried out terrorist attacks in Northern Ireland and in Spain. "We must encourage this metamorphosis in the Middle East," D'Alema said.

"Instead, organizations that are purely dedicated to terror must be fought and defeated," he told Corriere, the country's leading newspaper.

Both Hizbullah and Hamas are on a US list of terror organizations. The European Union considers Hamas a terrorist organization but does not list Hizbullah.

Remember Carl, you cannot ever trust lefties or left leaning pols. Italy went from an intelligent and reasonable government to a haven for lefties.

Hopefully they will return to their senses in the future, but if their government can do it once, it can do it again. And again.

The new Italian Foreign Minister is an excellent example for my personal opinion that a total idiot can become a Cabinet Minister in any country in EUrope, as long as he/she is a PC LEFTIST idiot.

Be a good sycophant; mouth any of the politically correct platitudes, as the occasion demands; be able to pick up and use the latest PC buzzwords in conjunction with the PC platitudes. A few examples:
* "multi-cultural",
* "nuanced",
* "inclusive",
* "disproportionate",
* "quagmire",
* "American-like",
* "______-phobic" (Fill in the blank on this marvelously useful ad hominim creation. Its use allows one to evade debating an idea that another person said, instead dismissing the person as somehow imbalanced and biased.)

I'm not being the least bit tongue-in-cheek here. I'll expand my view to postulate a template for all Western Leftist politicians as a whole. They're remarkably unimaginative, non-thinking, reality-denying intellectually and morally stunted souls. One could pity them if it weren't for the fact that these fools are dragging their individual respective nations, and Western Civilization as a whole, to a collective disaster.
