Alastair Crooke must be the reincarnation of Neville Chamberlain, if he believes the nonsense he spouts. You need to know a little bit more about Mr. Crooke and why he fits in so well at the Clinton Carnival. I refer you to this rather lengthy piece by Daniel Pipes.
The only engagement we need to have with Hamas and Hezbollah is an armed one and it should involve no compromise. These terrorist groups have resisted compromise and ceasefires unless it worked to their benefit and, when it was convenient for them , they have broken agreements. But, they are the darlings of Clinton and his cronies.
Slick Willie is so desperate to write a respectable page in the history books, he will broker any kind of peace, even if it means raising himself up by standing on the bodies of the innocent victims of terrorism. We always knew the man had no morals, no integrity and no shame and he continues to prove it over and over again.
Antendees at the Clinton Global Initiative were told on Friday that terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas should be "engaged" by the world's peace loving nations - even if their members persist in trying to destroy Israel and America.
Newsday reports that during a session on religious-political relations, Alastair Crooke, director of the British-based Conflicts Forum, said:
"Governments should engage groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah, who, despite their use of violence, were willing to participate in the political process and had strong credibility with many people in the Middle East."
