Dhimmi Carter and The Terrorist

Jimmy Carter has no clue when to quit. He seems hellbent on adding credit after asinine credit to his already overflowing resume' of idiocies. You would think that, after all his major gaffes and missteps over the years, he would sit back and enjoy his retirement, try to keep his mouth shut, and put more effort into worthy projects like his Habitat For Humanity. But, nope, with every subsequent blunder, Carter continues to ensure he goes down in history as the world's worst President. Although some might disagree, history will eventually prove that he wins that title hands down.

So what's his latest screw-up?
Against the State Department's recommendation , James Earle Carter, Jr. is apparently headed to Syria to meet with none other than Khaled Meshaal, the exiled leader of Hamas (Islamic Resistance Movement). What on earth he thinks he can accomplish chatting with the leader of a designated terrorist organization, is beyond me. Peace? You can't negotiate peace with a group whose charter contains the following statements:

"Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors."
Article Seven: ....Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah’s promise whatever time it might take. The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree (cited by Bukhari and Muslim).

Article Eleven: The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf . ... This is the status [of the land] in Islamic Shari’a, and it is similar to all lands conquered by Islam by force, and made thereby Waqf lands upon their conquest, for all generations of Muslims until the Day of Resurrection.

Article Twelve: Hamas regards Nationalism (Wataniyya) as part and parcel of the religious faith. Nothing is loftier or deeper in Nationalism than waging Jihad against the enemy and confronting him when he sets foot on the land of the Muslims. And this becomes an individual duty binding on every Muslim man and woman.

Article Thirteen: [Peace] initiatives, the so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement. For renouncing any part of Palestine means renouncing part of the religion; the nationalism of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its faith, the movement educates its members to adhere to its principles and to raise the banner of Allah over their homeland as they fight their Jihad.
There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad. The initiatives, proposals and international Conferences are but a waste of time, and exercise in futility.

What I find most objectionable is that, as a former president, Carter is entitled to Secret Service protection, which means he and his wife will be accompanied, on this upcoming trip, by at least 5 agents. And at whose expense? The U.S. taxpayer! If he chooses to ignore the administration's exhortation not to meet with Meshaal, then he should be liable for the cost. We should not have to suffer for his stupidity and lack of insight.

Stay home Mr. Carter, and save us (and yourself) more embarrassment!

The State Dept, the White House, Condi Rice, all have said Carter should not meet with Hamas. Doesn't matter to Carter, though. His hatred of Israel and Jews is well known. From back when he ran for re-election and lost. He said if he was re-elected, the "Jews would pay." He continues today with his anti-Semitic behavior.

Talk show host, Michael Medved, said his presidential pension should be cut off. If he won't behave with the dignity of a former president, he should not receive the benefits. Makes sense to me.

Play nice boys and girls. Jimmy Carter has every bit as much right to say and do stupid things as all of us do. I'll admit that just talking to people who put it in writing that they hate us and the Jews is pretty stupid on the stupid scale. Jimmy Carter almost wiped out the readiness of the Guard and the Army with his budget cuts and for that I vote him the worst. MUD

PATJ: Well, we can only hope, eh?!

KAREN: Well, though he swears up and down he's not an anti-semite, we all know he is. Medved is right.. what a great idea!!

MUD: Yeah, you're right, MUD, but not with my tax dollars. Let him pay for his own security. :-)
