Despite Outcry, Jimmah Set to Visit Hamas Leader
Posted by Ryan on April 12, 2008
By now most of you have heard that Jimmah Carter is going to Syria next week, where he’s most likely going to meet up with an exiled Hamas leader, Khaled Mashaal. Jimmah, who has called Israel “an apartheid state” in the past and continues to be predictably on the wrong side of history, becomes the first significant American figure to meet with leadership of this terrorist group since (ready for this) Jesse Jackson two years ago! Jimmah and Jesse in the same sentence.
The Carter Center is being vague and dodgy on the specifics of his trip, which should tell one everything they need to know. The State Department, including Condoleezza Rice, has publicly asked that Carter not do this, but Carter is adamant about promoting “human rights” in the region.
So, let me get this straight: American policy and interventionism in the historically volatile Mideast is bad, but planning and actually blowing up and shooting Jews is OK, plus Saddam should have continued filling mass graves with Shi’ite civilians and dissidents because it’s America that poses the biggest danger to world peace? Right.
And how did this clown ever become President?
