Former President Jimmy Carter wants the terror organization Hamas to be accepted as a “legitimate” government.
Former president Jimmy Carter, pictured below, unfairly labeled Israel an Apartheid state eight years ago. He even wrote a book on the topic titled, “Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid”. He is vehemently anti-Israel.
This morning he wrote a column on foreignpolicy.com with the anti-Israel former president of Ireland, Mary Robinson. It was scathing.
They blamed Israel for the problems with Hamas and they think that the unity government with the Palestinian Authority and Fatah is a good thing. They want Hamas, recognized as a terror group since 1997, to be recognized as a legitimate player.
Why don’t we recognize Al Qaeda and ISIS while we’re at it. They are all the same people.
“Hamas cannot be wished away, nor will it cooperate in its own demise,” the article declared. “Only by recognizing its legitimacy as a political actor – one that represents a substantial portion of the Palestinian people – can the West begin to provide the right incentives for Hamas to lay down its weapons,” they claimed remarkably.
Carter and Robinson said Israel must also lift sanctions on Gaza and remove a blockade that prevents goods and people from easily getting in and out of Gaza.
If Israel does that they will have to worry about more than missiles. Hamas will do whatever it can to destroy Israel. It’s their only reason for existing.
Israel has had 3500 missiles lobbed into their country in the last month, yet, Carter said this: “…there is no humane or legal justification” for the way Israel has “pulverized large parts of Gaza, including thousands of homes, schools, and hospitals.”
A previous address to Hamas was broadcast on CNN, the Caliphate News Network. He was near-to-tears, over the suffering in Gaza. He seems unaware of the fact that Hamas has caused the damage. Carter will never support Israel on any issue.
Unbelievably, he thinks Hamas wants peace.
President Obama spoke to the issue this evening and, in what can only be described as a lackluster performance, he said he didn’t “have any sympathy for Hamas.” Sympathy? They’re a terror group!
He also wants Israel to remove the blockade on Gaza even though they launch missiles into Israel on a daily basis.
