The Disgrace of Jimmy Carter

Carters recent trip to the Middle East should raise some very pointed questions about his allegiance to the United States. Those who support him will claim he was on a mission of peace, while those of us who would prefer Mr. Carter return to his peanut farm and stay there see it much differently.

The problem is not so much the fact that Carter went to Syria to meet with Khaled Mashaal. The problem is the way in which he went about it.

From The Wall Street Journal, by Bernard-Henri Levy;

“The problem is the spectacular and useless embrace he exchanged with the senior Hamas dignitary, Nasser Shaer, in Ramallah.”

“The problem is the wreath he laid piously at the grave of Yasser Arafat, who, as Mr. Carter knows better than anyone else, was a real obstacle to peace.”

“It is that in Cairo, if we are to believe another Hamas leader, Mahmoud Zahar, whose statement has so far not been denied, Mr. Carter apparently described Hamas as a "national liberation movement" – this party which has made a cult of death, a mythology of blood and race, and an anti-Semitism along the lines of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion into the linchpin of its ideology.”

“The problem is also the formidable nose thumbing he got from Hamas's exiled leader, Khaled Mashaal, who, at the very moment he was receiving Mr. Carter, also triggered the first car bombing in several months in Keren Shalom on the Gaza strip – and that this event elicited from poor Mr. Carter, all tangled up in his small-time mediator calculations, not one disapproving or empathetic word.”

“The former president, it will be recalled, is an old hand at this sort of thing.”

If it wasn't such a serious issue, it could be quite funny to read that, not long after spending hours with former President Carter talking about peace, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal declared in an interview on Al-Jazeera television that for his group, any cease-fire with Israel was just "a tactic in conducting the struggle...

I won’t say I told you so…but I did tell you so… Where have all the billions of dollars in aid gone…gone to terrorists every one. Read the story you aren’t likely to see in the mainstream media here.

But you know it’s all Israel’s fault….yeah…un-huh….sure it is.

Jimmy….Mr. Carter…please do us all a favor and just say no to Hamas. Failing that then I ask with all due respect stay home, perhaps then people won’t demand your passport be revoked and the millions of taxpayer dollars for the Carter Center won’t be removed.
