While he was in office I was relatively sure Jimmy Carter was not up to the job. Recent statements he has made in regards to the Israeli-Hamas situation confirms my fears.

Jimmy Carter is nuts! There is no other logical explanation. He recently said,

Only by recognizing its legitimacy as a political actor — one that represents a substantial portion of the Palestinian people — can the West begin to provide the right incentives for Hamas to lay down its weapons.

Recognizing Hamas as a 'political actor'? What the heck is that supposed to mean. Hamas may be political but I don't think they're acting. Hamas has stated their mission is to eliminate Israel. They don't care about diplomacy, the UN or Jimmy Carter. They just want to wipe Israel off the map.

I firmly believe as it has been said by many, if Hamas and the Palestinian lay down their arms there will be peace in Israel. If Israel lays down it's arms there will be no more Israel.

This notion that Israel is targeting hospitals, schools and mosques is pure manure. Israel is trying to destroy launching sites of the missiles that are raining down on the Iron Dome defense system that to this point is largely protecting Israel. Some people complain that Israel has killed a disproportionate number of Palestinians. Maybe if the Hamas militants would not use their women and children as human shields Israel would not kill so many. If Hamas would have the cajones to stand up and fight without hiding behind women and children it might make their struggle more believable.

The US, the UN and the EU have sanctioned Hamas and sent humanitarian aid that wound up being preformed concrete that was used to construct tunnels to sneak into Israel and kill people. These animals can use 'humanitarian aid' to their on ends no matter what. They will let their own people starve and live in squalor to further their mission to destroy Israel.

Hamas, North Korea and other hell holes ruled by megalomaniacs continue to espouse hate and kill innocent people while their people live in misery.

Jimmy Carter has done as much for world peace as the other former President Bill Clinton has done to promote safe sex.
