Terrorism is in the eye of the Beholder

Jim McDermott, a Democratic Party Congressman, was explaining what the problem was with the current adminstration and the middle east.

He expressed the opinion that we needed to sit down and talk to Hamas, to talk to Hezbollah, to enter into negotiations with our enemies to solve the problem. Then, I suppose sensing that some might have a problem with that, he addressed the issue head on. See, he said, some people would say you don't want to bargain with terrorists, but that wasn't a problem here, because, after all, "terrorism is in the eye of the beholder".

In other words, McDermott doesn't seem to think that Hamas and Hezbollah are terrorist organizations. Because we don't bargain with terrorists, but we should bargain wtih Hamas and Hezbollah. Which must mean he doesn't "behold" them as terrorists.

Maybe someone will argue that McDermott isn't really a Democrat.

I wouldn't say that McDermott is not really a Democrat.

However, one COULD make the case that McDermott is not really an American.
