In the recent Gaza War he, once again, continued his tradition of siding with Hamas. Carter represents perfectly the Left´s romance with terror. The message he sends to the world is clear and our reaction to him, and to those who follow him, must be clear as well.
He´s a disgrace. Do you believe the Iranian hostage crisis would have occurred if someone other than Carter was in office? JG:
Well, I can say this: Jimmy Carter pulled the rug from under the Shah´s feet. There is a very good possibility that if a man such as Reagan would have been in office during that time, a president who understood the importance of supporting our allies against evil tyrants, that the Shah would have been able to stay in power. How about the current administration? What do you believe will happen in Iraq now that Barack Obama is President? JG:
Let´s give Obama a chance and see what he does. He has showed some good signs that he is no weakling when it comes to the terror war. He assembled a strong war cabinet. He´s not cutting and running from Iraq. He´s agreed to a surge in Afghanistan. This is hopeful. Other signs are troubling, however. He has announced the closure of Guantanamo, closed all overseas CIA interrogation centers and his positions on Gaza and other matters are very naïve and weak. These steps severely jeapordize American and Israeli security.
In terms of Iraq, we have to thank Bush for America winning the war there. Al Qaeda has gone elsewhere and the society appears to be stabilizing. So Obama is inheriting a victory that he and other Democrats tried to prevent. Does the future look bleaker for freedom across the world? JG:
It´s hard not to be pessimistic. The British, for instance, are showing signs of surrender. They just forcibly put Geert Wilders on a plane and sent him out of the country in fear of repercussions from Muslims. This is a surrender. Freedom and free speech have been sacrificed on the altar of appeasing Muslims.
But Vladimir Bukovsky and Armando Valladares, Varlam Shalamov and Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigitte Gabriel, warriors such as these have shown us that the thirst and hunger for human freedom cannot be suffocated by any force, no matter how large or powerful.
