History’s Greatest Monster took his occasion at Emory to lash out at the Israelis — you know, the ones the Palestinians want to wipe off the face of the earth.
While Carter acknowledged terror tactics used by Palestinian groups, he said Israel will never find peace until it stops the abuse of Palestinians.
Naturally, he cites the fence, settlements, etc. I’m reminded of this AP report.
Rice met for two hours with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, resolute in his position that he must govern hand-in-hand with Hamas militants who refuse to moderate anti-Israeli policies.
Later Sunday, the U.S. diplomat held a similarly long meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert over a similarly hard-line position.
Carter himself couldn’t have said it better. But let’s look at these “similarly hard-line position[s].”
Hamas: Israel must cease to exist. The Jews must die.
Israel: According to the article, it’s “similarly hard-line position” is:
Israel will not recognize a Palestinian government that refuses to renounce violence, honor past commitments and accept Israel’s right to exist.
Only the MSM and Jimmy Carter would view these positions as similar.
