From Peanut Farmer to Peace Maker

Well, the visit of the inveterate octogenarian, former President Carter, has been and gone. He is and has been convinced that “if only Israel would be good little boys and talk to Hamas, then everything would be alright". Now which world is he living in?

One Associated press writer, KARIN LAUB, on Monday reported that “Former President Carter said that Hamas — the Islamic militant group that has called for the destruction of Israel — is prepared to accept the right of the Jewish state to "live as a neighbor next door in peace."” – Wow, what are we waiting for? But then Carter warned “that there would not be peace if Israel and the U.S. continue to shut out Hamas and its main backer, Syria.” Oops, thought it was too good to be true

Another Associated Press writer ALBERT AJI, on the same day reporting from Damascus stated that Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal says “his militant Islamic group will not recognize Israel. However he says Hamas will accept a Palestinian state on Palestinian territories occupied by Israel in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war”. What a great base from which to destroy the State.

And who is funding Carter and his peace making nonsense – but of course – the Arabs, who else! No ex President Carter, your presence here is a disgrace. Your term as President was replete with failures from Iran to Zimbabwe – go back to peanut farming.
