Hamas Leader Vows Not to Recognize Israel After Carter Trumpets Terror Group's Willingness to Be Good 'Neighbor'
Monday , April 21, 2008
[My Comments are in bold-This former President has become a complete bufoon..and that's being nice. Let me comment along to this story]
Just hours after former President Jimmy Carter trumpeted Hamas' agreement to let Israel "live as a neighbor," the same terrorist leader he met with face-to-face vowed not to recognize the Jewish state. [Duh, a leopard will not change his spots]
But Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal did offer Israel a 10-year truce if it withdraws from all lands it seized in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. [No doubt so they can finish raising, training and equipping their army with Iranian weapons for the Final Solution to the Jewish state.]
The former president also said Monday that he would never sit down with Al Qaeda because the terror network has no "redeeming features." [Probably because no reporter would actually be that stupid to go with him, but just barely.]
"[Al Qaeda] are not involved in any sort of a fruitful process. They are not recognized by their own people," Carter told FOX News in an interview Monday. "On the other hand, you have to remember Hamas in an honest and open and fair and transparent election were elected the leaders of the Palestinian government." [As fair and transparent as a bunch of thugs with AK-47s can make it anyway]
Carter claimed his meetings with Hamas and Syrian leaders weren't meant to circumvent the Bush administration, nor was it an attempt to formally negotiate with Hamas. [Good thing, you moron]
"I'm not undermining anything. I'm not negotiating. ... I'm just here representing myself and the Carter Center. No one else," he said. "My decision was just to talk to people who must be involved in the final peace agreement. [And to get lots of fawning press coverage, I wonder if he discussed global warming with them]
In the past, Hamas officials have said they would establish a "peace in stages" if Israel were to withdraw to the frontiers it held before the 1967 Mideast War. But it has been evasive about how it sees the final borders of a Palestinian state, and has not abandoned its official call for Israel's destruction. [Duh, again]
Israel and the U.S. State Department consider Hamas to be a terrorist group.[Because they are!] Israeli officials had shunned Carter during his visit because of his meetings with Mashaal, and other group leaders.[About time they grew a pair!]
Syria harbors Hamas' exiled leadership in its capital, Damascus, and supports the Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas who warred with Israel in 2006.[Imagine that, they're only Iran's puppet.]
