Well, my cuz Jimmah Cahtuh went against the strong advice of the State Department and met with the world-recognized terrorist group Hamas. The Israeli officials weren’t too happy about it either, denying him official security protection.
He went anyway, and decided that the dead PLO head terrorist Yasser Arafat was worthy of homage, laying a wreath at his mausoleum. Then the pitiful ex President went on to his meeting with the second in command of Hamas, Nasser al-Shaer. Who he hugged.
“He gave me a hug. We hugged each other, and it was a warm reception,” Shaer told The Associated Press. “Carter asked what he can do to achieve peace between the Palestinians and Israel … and I told him the possibility for peace is high.”
Peace…a nice steaming bowl of taquiyya anyone?
Carter admitted while over there (but certainly not before he left) that he is “quite at ease” with meeting with terrorists, and that “I’ve been meeting with Hamas leaders for years,”
GAZA, April 15 (Xinhua) — The Islamic Jihad (Holy War) movement in Gaza has slammed on Tuesday the statements of former U.S. president Jimmy Carter, after he termed the rockets attacks on Israel as “a big crime.”
Carter, who is visiting in the region, paid a visit to the southern Israeli town of Sderout, which has been a subject for homemade rockets’ attacks carried out by Gaza militants. Carter said rockets “are a crime against humanity.”
Dawood Shihab, spokesman for the Islamic Jihad movement in Gaza, said in response that “Carter’s statement of describing resistance as a crime against humanity is in itself an overthrow on the morals of humanity.”
It must be so hard, being the Man Who Will Bring Us Together.
