Skip to comments.Carter calls for end to fighting in Gaza
Posted on 07/22/2014 2:43:55 PM PDT by NCjim
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has called for an end to the fighting and bombing in Gaza.
Both sides must distinguish between combatants and noncombatants, and Israel must ensure that its use of force is proportionate in accordance with international humanitarian law. More immediately, all combat operations must stop, and Israeli troops should withdraw from Gaza, Carter said in a statement released Tuesday.
So far, more than 600 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed in the fighting, according to reports. The Israeli death toll is estimated at 29, including two civilians.
Humantarian groups have also called for an end to the fighting, citing the civilian loss of life as well as deteriorating conditions in the area.
Carter also called on the international community to use a ceasefire agreement to advance the reunification of Palestine if there is to be sustainable peace between Israelis and Palestinians. The agreement must include implementation and international monitoring mechanisms.

Things must be going well for Israel if Carter’s getting involved. /S
Does this old fool really think this is going to happen? Does he think Hamas has ever done anything other than targeting noncombatants? Statements like this are meaningless and useless. Just like Jimmy Carter, come to think of it.
If we could put Carter in charge of Hamas, the organization would become completely incompetent at terrorism within a year.
Some old fool that is more irrelevant than ever.
Really Israel is going to listen to an antisemite who compared Israel to apartheid era South Africa.
The farce is now officially complete.
Israeli / Palestinian cease fire: “We cease, they fire”
You want to end fighting in Gaza, then end the rockets and attacks from Gaza. Pretty simple.
Carter says the terrorists are losing so he wants Israel to stop killing the terrorists.
The Jew-haters always want a ceasefire when Israel gets the upper hand....
is he still alive?
The only thing more humorous than this old bag of air calling so a cease fire as Hamas sends rockets into Israel is that John McCain joins him in a bipartisan call for a cease fire
I don’t believe that there are any civilians left in GAZA...
You know, Jimmy can’t tell which room the toilet is in anymore.
Maybe jimi could take billy and some BillyBeer over for a beer summit and have zer0, plugs and billhilly come along. Oh and least we forget and don’t forget skerry. The meeting could be held in Gaza.
Shut up fool!
This is the braindead utopian illogic of leftists on display.
This is how the enemy gains an advantage on a militarily superior force.
Carter’s assessment of the situation is laughable at best.
I mean, why not just replace all the real rockets with Nerf rockets,Then nobody gets hurt.
This is WAR, and it’s been going on in that region for thousands of years before all the super brainiac liberals came along and decided that by rolling over and playing dead that somehow the terrorist enemies will leave us alone in peace.
But thanx anyway Jimmy, we shall take it under advisement...Dumbass
This old fud-e-dud is flapping his gums again. Isreal should not quit until they have destroyed the ability of those cowardly arabs to launch rockets on Isreal. To do anything else is stupid. Clean up this time for a period of peace. Then, and only then, should Isreal agree to a cease fire. They’ve commited to a cease fire before only to have the sand fleas start firing rockets only days after. They can’t make that mistake again.
It’s proportionate, Jimmah. The Palestinians refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist. If they could, they would wipe Israel and its citizens off the face of the earth. Israel is capable of doing that to Gaza, but they don’t. Anything short of that is proportionate . . . IMHO
Billy is dead, but in the presence of Jimmy, nobody will notice.
“the use of force is proportionate”
“Proportionate” my foot! Jimmuh makes it sound like a game of tit-for-tat. If that’s the ROE there will be no end.
This one may be the run for the roses, Israeli troopies must continue taking names of the roll until the barbarians holler DOD!
My Lord, is this vicious Nazi still alive, after all these yeaars!? ( I guess all those millions of Arab/Saudi bribe dollar payments are good for longevity as well as the good ol’ bank account...)
Guess what, Jimmy...where you’re going -— all your 30 pieces of silver won’t help ya...
ps: Jimmy, at least have the human decency to put down that fake Bible you never learned nothing from.....
you give Christianity a bad image, a very very bad image...
it could be a fun party for jimi, zer0, plugs, billhilly and Energizer if the Gaza rocket launchers were set up and fired about fifty feet from jimi, zer0, plugs, billhilly and Energizer. Would make for a certainty Israel would show up at the summit.
I’m calling for an end to Carter! He’s the “negative gift” that keeps on giving.
Peanuts, get your red hot peanuts and country bumpkin inanities, by the bag or by bushel at jimmahs country bumpkin fruit and nut stand.
Give them murderin' muzzies what for!
I suppose a proportional use of force would be for Israel to fire rockets indiscriminately into Gaza, drill tunnels,and send forces into Gaza to kill Palestinian families
There was a failed President named Jimmy Carter back in the 1970s, but I thought he had died a long time ago. I guess he is just senile.
He is probably jealous that Obama took away his title as The Worst President in History.
Has anyone ever noticed Carter calling for an immediate halt to Hamas or Hizbollah rocket fire into Israel, with international monitoring? Y’know, ‘cause he hates all Jews, not just Israelis.
Not until Jesse Jackson shows up.
What did the rabbit say?
I “call for” carter to be involuntarily committed by his family as a gesture of goodwill to the nation.
It’s very telling , he didn’t call for the rockets from Gaza to stop.
Hey Jimmah, how ‘bout you go be a human shield with your fellow Jew haters?
Jimmy cant tell which room the toilet is in anymore.
Thanks to Depends, he doesn’t need to.
...and a beginning to fighting everywhere.
Oh good, that ought to help a lot.
I think most Americans would prefer an end to Jimuh Catuh.
Yes, he still draws breath.
He will be 90 come October 1st.
He's also a rabid anti-semite and NEO-NAZI.
Hussein Baraka might be a worse POTUS, but he is hampered by being on vacation so much.
Thank God he isn't worried about the "Lazy Black" stereotype.
