Ex-US president Carter's escapes assassination by al Qaeda-linked Palestinians
The Debka File ^ | 06-17-09 | DebkaFile

Posted on 06/21/2009 12:29:04 PM PDT by mycloudburst

DEBKAfile's military sources confirm that the Army of Islam, the Palestinian al Qaeda cell in Gaza tried to assassinate former US president Jimmy Carter by planting a 200-kilo bomb in the path of his exit through the Erez crossing after he held sympathetic talks with its Hamas rulers. The Israeli military watched the huge device from across the border. Carter had a lucky escape; the bomb would have been lethal had it exploded.

The UN security guards escorting Carter must have been forewarned and his life saved. Hamas sappers defused the device but later denied it was there.

Nevertheless, some reports say Carter promises to urge President Barack Obama to remove the Palestinian extremist organization from the US list of designated terrorists.

Our sources note that US citizens are forbidden to enter the Gaza Strip and West Bank for fear Hamas or other Palestinian groups, including those linked to al Qaeda, will take them hostage. Carter got around the ban by entering with UN escort.

The same al Qaeda cell took part in the Hamas cross-border attack from Gaza to kidnap Israel soldiers a week ago and Hamas' Gilead Shalit's abduction three years ago.

Palestinian Authority security officials were not available to secure Carter's visit to Gaza because of their feud. In the last two years, the US has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in building and training a 1,500-strong PA special force for guarding Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and his West Bank government.

In Gaza City, Carter told his extremist hosts he feels personally responsible for the fact that Israel used US-made weapons to fight Hamas in Gaza in January. Israel launched its offensive to stop the hail of Hamas rockets assaulting Israel towns and villages four years after its forces handed the Gaza Strip over to Palestinian rule. Carter "held back tears" at the sight of living conditions there for which he held Israel wholly responsible.

“Carter had a lucky escape...” Lucky for Jimmuh, maybe, but not for the United States.

How old is Carter—90?

Isn’t it time for him to go to his reward on that Big Peanut Farm in the Sky?

That would have killed two birds with one stone: Got rid of the biggest idiot pain in the ass in American history and just maybe wake up Obama to the importance in killing those radical bastard Palestinians.

Sounds like Israel might have had a hand in saving Carter. That knowledge must be eating him alive.

June 16, 2009: Jimmy Carter demands that Obama remove Hamas from the list of terrorist groups.

June 20, 2009: Hamas gunmen kill at least 7 peaceful Iranian protesters in Tehran.

Suggestion: June 22, 2009: Jimmy Carter placed on terrorist watch list.

He reward will be that big peanut farm in hell. He'll probably like it better too. He can grow roasted peanuts right in the ground, rather than picking them then having to roast them.

Why can’t Carter do the noble thing and fade quietly into obscurity, like a good past president should?

Nah. He'll just convince himself it was an Israeli plot designed to change his attitude towards Israel.

But he was just trying to pass a message from Øbama!

Carter Passed a Message from the White House
June 18, 2009

According to Yousef Ravka, a senior advisor to Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyah, visiting former US President Jimmy Carter earlier this week passed a verbal message to the Hamas prime minister from US President Barak Obama.

According to a HaMevaser report, the verbal message stated, albeit in a roundabout way, that the current administration differs from the previous American administration and the president wishes to play a vital role in finding a solution for the Palestinians. The senior terrorist advisor added that Carter indicated he will work to persuade the US administration to move ahead and work with Hamas, adding Hamas is indeed willing to cooperate with the new American administration.

Ravka explained that Hamas is willing to do anything “to end the suffering of the Palestinian people and bring about a Palestinian state,” adding the current US administration “is more serious than its predecessor, and exhibits an awareness regarding the suffering of the Palestinian people”.

Ravka added Hamas supports efforts to establish a Palestinian state based on the pre-June 1967 borders, with Jerusalem serving as its capital.

Ravka’s remarks were quoted in the London-based al-Hayat newspaper.

I don’t believe it either — but I hope they don’t quit trying!

It would take a bomb of that size to get Carter’s attention.

"Jimmy Carter .....urinate on him"

It's EXACTLY that sentiment which many Americans have that drove the Carter family to pre-order a waterproof coffin...and an above ground crypt at Arlington National Cemetery....

It won't work.

I found it:

Night of the Lepus United States, 1972 Night of the Lepus Starring Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh, DeForrest Kelley. Directed by William F. Claxton. Bunny injected with an experimental serum escapes into the desert and sires a population of giant killer rabbits. Fortunately, Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh, and DeForrest "Bones" Kelley are around to save the day. Goofy pseudo-science tries to explain why rabbits would turn carniverous, and goofier special effects try to convince you that they're giant-sized. Based on the novel, Night of the Angry Rabbit. We swear. Reviews: Cavalcade of Schlock, FoyWonder.

I didn't forget that, I was hoping he didn't forget that he was an American first. Jimmy Carter forgot and was the worst president in the history of this country. If Obama keeps on the path he is on, he will beat Carter out as the lowest pond scum ever.

So what would have happened if they had killed the peanut man?

It is dangerous to let this anti-semite old hink of slime roam around countries. If he is killed a response will have to be made. If the US responds I want it to respond for something important, not to look for revenge for some foreign country doing us a favor.

Couldn’t have been the work of Hamas, since JC is such an asset to their plans.

Maybe someone else was trying to off him, and was going to let the blame fall “wherever”.

Days after everyone else found out, Debka sez:
...the Army of Islam, the Palestinian al Qaeda cell in Gaza tried to assassinate former US president Jimmy Carter by planting a 200-kilo bomb in the path of his exit through the Erez crossing after he held sympathetic talks with its Hamas rulers. The Israeli military watched the huge device from across the border... The UN security guards escorting Carter must have been forewarned and his life saved. Hamas sappers defused the device but later denied it was there.
Israeli intelligence warned Hamas about the bomb, saved Carter. That's one reason Hamas denied it was there. The other reason is, it makes Hamas look like it isn't in control in Gaza.
