Jimmy Carter – Habitat for Inhumanity
The Palestinians are a people best known for never missing an opportunity to miss an opportunity for peace. We have all heard their demands for a homeland, so what do they do when the world offers one up on a silver platter. They reject it and instead elect the terrorist organization Hamas to power. So the gift didn’t include Jerusalem as the capital and Israel would still be allowed to exist, but this outright rejection certainly indicates that a Palestinian homeland is not what this is all about. In these times there is nothing easier than going though life motivated by hate and under the safety net of victim.
Jimmy Carter is reportedly preparing an unprecedented meeting with the leader of Hamas, an organization that the U.S. government considers one of the leading terrorist threats in the world.
“It’s about par for the course from President Carter, demonstrating a lack of judgment typical of what he does,” said John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. “To go to Syria to visit Hamas at this point is just an ill-timed, ill-advised decision on his part.”
“When you put the prestige of a former president of the United States in a meeting with one of its terrorist leaders, you’re giving it a legitimacy and currency it never had,” said Bolton.
“I’m not surprised that Carter would do this, as he has been supporting Palestinian extremism for many years,” said Steve Emerson, director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, a watchdog group.
But Ibrahim Hooper, communications director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a non-profit advocacy group, said Carter’s efforts demonstrate he’s a true partner in peace.
“I think if true, this report would indicate that President Carter is willing to travel any road in search of peace,” he said. “I think President Carter would only undertake such a mission if he believed that something could be achieved in terms of peace and reconciliation in the region.”
Let’s see, CAIR praising the actions of Jimmy Carter. That’s enough for anyone to smell a rat, but it’s really not as bad as it sounds. Given Carter’s track record for failure and the Palestinian tendency to avoid success it appears the US will be the winner as Carter will be there and not here.
