According to Jimmy Carter, the United States, Israel and the European Union, must end their policy of favoring Fatah over Hamas.
Carter, a Nobel Peace Prize winner who took his prize at the same time as Yasser Arafat, was addressing a conference of Irish human rights officials, said the Bush administration’s refusal to accept the 2006 election victory of Hamas was “criminal.”
Carter said Hamas, besides winning a fair and democratic mandate that should have entitled it to lead the Palestinian government, had proven itself to be far more organized in its political and military showdowns with the Fatah movement of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
Is Carter sactioning this thug-controlled election like he did for Hugo Chavez?
Hamas fighters routed Fatah in their violent takeover of the Gaza Strip last week. The split prompted Abbas to dissolve the power-sharing government with his rivals in Hamas and set up a Fatah-led administration to govern the West Bank.
Carter said the American-Israeli-European consensus to reopen direct aid to the new government in the West Bank, but to deny the same to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, represented an “effort to divide Palestinians into two peoples.”
The disgraced president doesn’t know right from wrong. The two peoples are killing each other, mafia style.
Someone should tell Mr. Carter that Hamas raided Arafat’s former home and stole his Nobel Peace Prize. Imagine the irony?
Carter reminds me of the traitor in the blockbuster film “300.” Not only his facial features, but more important, his support of terrorists.
