Carter: Hamas involvement in PA elections good
Jerusalem Post ^ | January 20, 2006

Posted on 01/20/2006 9:14:24 AM PST by West Coast Conservative

Former US president Jimmy Carter expressed optimism Friday over Hamas's participation in next week's Palestinian parliamentary elections.

Carter told CNN in an interview that although Hamas were "so-called terrorists," so far "there have been no complaints of corruption against [their] elected officials."

He conceded that "there is an element within Hamas who deny Israel's right to exist," but compared the current situation to negotiations with the PLO, which was still outlawed as a terrorist organization during his presidency.

He drew an additional comparison with Menachem Begin's rise to Israel's premiership in the seventies. "The Irgun, to which Begin belonged, was also characterized as a terrorist organization," he noted.

Hey, Jimmuh! It may not have happened on your watch, but there are 241 reasons why these clymers are not so-called. Moron.

May God render assistance to former president Carter, he has to be getting senile. He makes these statements about Hamas after being the overseer of the Venezuelan election and stating it was on the up and up.

This guy would support al-Qaida participation in US elections.

What an embarrassment to the Presidency and to the country this guy is.

He deserves no respect at all. NONE.

This was entirely predictable. All Liberals operate on the principle of Moral Equivalence. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. Liberals have absolutely no moral compass whatsoever.

Sage advice from the Godfather of Islamofascism.

Jimmy does not know when to shut up.

If Jimmy says something is good, it is almost always bad for the United States.

He even caused damage to the world after he left office. In 1998, he went to "negotiate" with Kim Jung Il and Kim came away with a billion dollars from US taxpayers for nuclear development.
