Well - I may not be a former POTUS but I think I have more sense of right and wrong than one of them! It appears he is suffering from some form of senility!!! Former President Jimmy Carter was speaking in Ireland at their annual Forum on Human Rights this week. In his speech, he accused the U.S. administration, Israel, and the European Union of trying to divide the Palestinians by supporting Mahmoud Abbas' government in the West Bank and denying support to the Hamas elected government in the Gaza strip. Isn't this the same President who dealt with Iranian terrorists who held Americans as hostages at the end of his term? As an American - I do not ever think we should or would support a government run by a terrorist organization like Hamas! It appears this former President wants us to provide monetary aid, open diplomatic relations with, and "play nice" with these terrorists!
His speech ends with the statement ""The United States and Israel decided to punish all the people in Palestine and did everything they could to deter a compromise between Hamas and Fatah," he said.
Carter said the U.S. and others supplied the Fatah-controlled security forces in Gaza with vastly superior weaponry in hopes they would "conquer Hamas in Gaza" — but Hamas routed Fatah in the fighting last week because of its "superior skills and discipline.""
It is time for this President to close his mouth before words come out that are insulting and inflammatory! Hopefully the rest of the world is not listening!
