Senator Russ Feingold Urges Condmnation, but NOT the Destruction of, Terrorist Groups

Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin made a statement regarding the war between Israel and Hezbollah. Unfortunately, he failed to call for the destruction of terrorist groups. Senator Feingold urged state-sponsors of terrorism (without referring to them as such) to condemn the actions of terrorists (without referring to them as such) which block the peace process (which has not existed for a number of years - arguably since 2000). From the Senator's website:

Statement of U.S. Senator Russ Feingold
On the Hezbollah Attacks on Israel

July 14, 2006

“I stand firmly with the people of Israel and their government as they defend themselves against these outrageous attacks. The kidnapping of Israeli soldiers and missile attacks against Israeli citizens are unacceptable and cannot be tolerated. The first steps toward establishing peace must begin with the unconditional and immediate return of the kidnapped Israeli soldiers. Lebanon, Syria, Iran and countries throughout the region must also condemn the actions of Hezbollah, Hamas, and other groups committed to blocking the peace process and must take strong actions to return stability to the region immediately.”

If the Senator has made a statement calling on the destruction of Hezbollah, Hamas and other organizations I would be happy to see it. I will post any statement the Senator has made endorsing their destruction.
