Come on Wonder Carter, just what don’t you understand about temporary truces and an Islamist agenda that seeks the total destruction of Israel? Try using some of your wonder powers to increase the size of your peanut brain.
J’lem Post: Former US President Carter defied US and Israeli warnings and met twice this weekend with the exiled leader of Hamas and his deputy, two men the US government has labeled terrorists and Israel accuses of masterminding attacks that have killed hundreds of civilians.
Carter met Mashaal and his deputy, Moussa Abu Marzouk, again for about an hour Saturday morning, after more than four hours of talks the night before.
“Several subjects were discussed, including [Israeli-Palestinian] crossing points, [captured Israeli soldier Gilad] Schalit, the siege on the Palestinians and a cease-fire between Hamas and Israel,” Abu Marzouk said Saturday.”
The man in drag is a walking international hazard who has a consistent record of mucking things up for elected governments. I like what Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C had to say about Carter, she called for the State Department “to revoke the former president’s passport.” The man is (thankfully) an unelected, private citizen, who shouldn’t be seen as being a third arm of US foreign policy, especially when he’s riding on his position of being a former US president.
Not only is the Bush administration against his “mission”, but also the Arab friendly US State Department, whose spokesman Sean McCormack suggested Friday:
“that Carter had opened himself up to “exploitation” by both Hamas and the Syrian government. “We find it very odd that one would encourage having a conversation between the Israeli government and Hamas, which doesn’t even recognize the right of the Israeli government to exist,” McCormack said. “Is that really the basis of a conversation?”
By giving such a high profile credibility to the Islamist terrorists, Carter’s visits only serve to increase their intransigence, not their moderation. The Hamas needs to be totally and utterly sidelined no matter how long it takes. It’s high time that the US State Department reels in this old bumbler before he does even more damage to an already tense situation. *L* KGS
