That's the only info available at this time.

I guess Jimmuh isn't as beloved by Hamas as his actions might warrant.

The media is trying to say that Hamas “discovered” this bomb and saved Jimmah.

No dought.. Good Morning America will claim Israel planted the bomb and they’ll cast Hamas as the heroes.

Thank goodness he is okay if the report is true. We want the old peanut fossil to die of natural causes even though he has been slowing killing us with his stupidity.

Now can we STOP sending money to Abbas and his cousin(s) Hamas. They are all the same group.

The last thing we need is Carter the Martyr. The media would work overtime trying to rewrite his legacy of failure.

True indeed. But prepare, it will happen anyway, eventually. The rabbit is closing ground.

“....The Jerusalem Post could not verify the report. But later Tuesday the IDF assessment also said the cluster of explosives was aimed at Carter. Earlier, Carter had been quoted as saying he was holding back tears when surveying the “deliberate destruction” in Gaza following Israel's Operation Cast Lead earlier this year, Israel Radio reported.

Carter said that it was distressing to see the devastation in Gaza but also to see Kassams falling on Sderot.

The way to stop this is through dialogue and peace, Carter told reporters.

Carter met with Hamas leaders including Ismail Haniyeh. Prior to the meeting, he said he would try to persuade them to accept the international community's conditions for ending its boycott of the group. Carter added that after his talks in Gaza, he will meet with officials in the Obama administration.

Carter moved onto Tel Aviv to meet with the parents of IDF soldier Gilad Schalit. He is expected to deliver a letter by them to Hamas.

On Tuesday morning, top Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar said his movement would consider giving Schalit a letter delivered by Carter....”

"Why would Hamas want to kill their best friend?"

Can't be Hamas... Jimmie's their best friend.

My bet is it was someone who moved into one of the houses built by Jimmie & Habitat for Humanity - the houses that are now falling down around them.

This had been an issue of some interest for me in the past, wondering when Carter would be the victim of some of the people he has run interference for.

This guy really is too stupid for his own good.

If some one does and god I hope they don't assassinate a former president.....we could wind up in a war we never wanted.

I don't agree with carter, clinton or obama, but if some one or some country assassinates one of them its a act of war, that requires a response......god help us.

Even if the arabs managed to kill Carter, I doubt Obama would respond against them.

He’d manage to find some way to blame “them Jooos.”

Ohhhhhh bull-loney. Jimmah is there best friend. They'd no sooner attack him than they'd have Ham for Easter.

That 'cluster of explosive devices' was prolly a 'cluster of Bunny Rabbits'.

(why do Rabbits hate Carter?)

Surrrrre they did. So they found a roadside bomb in the GAZA during a security sweep? Well thats clear PROOF they were after Carter their best friend!

There’s no other explanation for artillery shells wired up in Gaza. Its not like there was a war there or anything.

What an enormous ego Carter has.

Another update:

“Hamas said it foiled an attempt by Palestinian terrorists to assassinate former US president Jimmy Carter during his visit to the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, Palestinian sources told news agencies.

Israeli security sources said that the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) had learned of plans to target Carter and had passed on the information to the former president's security detail in “real time.”

According to Palestinian sources, terrorists linked with al Qaida hid a number of improved explosive devices along a road that Carter's convoy was scheduled to travel on inside Gaza. Hamas forces reportedly uncovered the IEDs and destroyed them.”

So, it sounds like the Jimmuh has the Shin Bet fellows to thank. Not that he ever would.
