Jimmy Carter Terrorist Sympathizer

Former President Jimmy Carter is reportedly preparing an unprecedented meeting with the leader of Hamas, an organization that the U.S. government considers one of the leading terrorist threats in the world.

The Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat reported Tuesday that Carter was planning a trip to Syria for mid-April, during which he would meet with Khaled Meshal, the exiled head of the Palestinian terror group Hamas, on April 18.

Deanna Congileo, Carter’s press secretary, confirmed in an e-mail to that Carter will be in the Mideast in April. Pressed for comment, Congileo did not deny that the former president is considering visiting Meshal.

“President Carter is planning a trip to the Mideast next week; however, we are still confirming details of the trip and will issue a press release by the end of this week,” wrote Congileo. “I cannot confirm any specific meetings at this point in time.”

Meshal, who lives in Syria to avoid being arrested by the Israeli government, leads Hamas from his seat in Damascus, where he is a guest of Bashar al-Assad's regime.

The State Department has designated Hamas a "foreign terrorist organization," and some groups hold Meshal personally responsible for ordering the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack once said of the prospect of meeting with Meshal, "That's not something that we could possibly conceive of."

Some Carter critics called the latest reports typical of the ex-president.

“It’s about par for the course from President Carter, demonstrating a lack of judgment typical of what he does," said John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. "To go to Syria to visit Hamas at this point is just an ill-timed, ill-advised decision on his part."

“I’m not surprised that Carter would do this, as he has been supporting Palestinian extremism for many years,” said Steve Emerson, director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, a watchdog group.

Carter would be the first Western leader of his stature to meet with the Hamas chief. Though Meshal met with Clinton officials in the 1990s, the Bush administration has sought to isolate Hamas, enforcing rigid sanctions on its government in Gaza and refusing to meet with its leaders unless it recognizes Israel and abandons terror.

“I think this [visit] undermines the U.S. policy of isolating Hamas,” said Emerson. “I think this encourages Europeans to further dilute their sanctions against the Hamas government.”

"When you put the prestige of a former president of the United States in a meeting with one of its terrorist leaders, you’re giving it a legitimacy and currency it never had,” said Bolton.

But Ibrahim Hooper, communications director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a non-profit advocacy group, said Carter's efforts demonstrate he's a true partner in peace.

“I think if true, this report would indicate that President Carter is willing to travel any road in search of peace,” he said. “I think President Carter would only undertake such a mission if he believed that something could be achieved in terms of peace and reconciliation in the region.”

Hooper added that because of Carter's reputation among Palestinians he might be able to bring some pressure to bear.

USS Jimmy Carter

“Obviously President Carter has a great amount of credibility in the region because of his past efforts seeking peace internationally,” Hooper said.

The Al-Hayat report stated that Carter would be traveling in his capacity as head of the Carter Center, and not in his capacity as a former president.

“That’s a distinction that’s absurd,” said Emerson.

“Maybe he’ll give up his pension, but he’s always a former president,” said Bolton.

Way to go Jimmy! Give Hamas the recognition they deserve. Pfft

Great post marie..I did a blog on this a few days ago, in it I wrote the following:

Someone needs to tells this POS that he's not the President anymore. He is NOT a legal representative of the American people and when he was, he was the worst President with the worst record on foreign relations in U.S. history, so why the HELL is he doing this? AND why is he allowed to do this?
Is there any chance that this is going to be a one way trip? Or am I pushing my luck?

Thanks for this post marie. I found your link over at DD2's place. You know the only reason that Libs, including HILLARY are protesting the Tibet horror , and Darfur, and other areas round the world with esoteric outrages, is simple. There is not going to be a military solution availible. The DemLibsMoveoners hate any military solution unless it takes no expenditure of lives, money and time. Real American enemies who do not get fooled by summits, talks like the Carter-Hamas talks, know that Dems will not hit them except, oh, maybe Aspirin or Baby Milk factories.

The Olympics seek to create a way of life based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of good example and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles.

This philosophy was established long before China was chosen for 2008 games.

So we know that all this outcry from Hillary is purly typical lib double-minded, hypocrisy!

Carter's efforts do not "demonstrate he is a partner in peace", as Ibrahim Hooper claims. Instead, his efforts demonstrate he has peanuts for brains, but we all knew that!

Carter was probably the most inept president of all time. He was certainly the most ridiculous and did more damage to our security and economy than any other president. I remember The huge sigh of relief we breathed in the military community when he was beaten handily by Reagan. Now when he goes on these missions to talk surrender, (he'll surrender to any terrorist) he only brings more and more shame and disgrace to his already sad legacy of incompetence and appeasement.

He was a sorry excuse for a President and he is even a sorrier excuse as an ex-president.

He not only has no business making the visit but he also has placed a former President in a position of being held as a hostage by a known terrorist group which compromises the US in both respects!

Why can't this idiot just stick to building houses ?!?!?!?!

Sadr is in Iran but he is the leader of a group in Iraq.

Paetreus is the leader of the us troops in Iraq where his troops are.

Unbelieveable that Dems will go out of their way to talk to America's enemies and turn their backs on our friends.

This week Nancy Pelosi helped Democrats stall, perhaps even kill, the free trade agreement we negotiated with Colombia. Colombia is a friend and ally in the region helping us contain that lunatic Hugo Chavez in Venezuela and Dems just gave Colombia the finger.

And of course let's not forget they want to invade Pakistan.

They are such idiots!

This is just about the nutiest thing I have heard Jimmy Carter doing yet. (Pun Intended)

If he really does go talk with the terrorists he better come back with a hostage.

However what makes him think he can rescue 1, when he couldnt rescue 52?
