America’s Worst Ex-President Ever and Hamas

Even State told him it was a bad idea. But, Mr. Carter’s ego is just too big, so His Quislingness goes to Syria, works to legitimatize both the Assad regime as well as Hamas, and generates much hoopla with a statement that Hamas is ready to do… pretty much nothing:

“’They (Hamas) said that they would accept a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, if approved by Palestinians and that they would accept the right of Israel to live as a neighbor next door in peace,’ Carter said.

In Damascus, Mashaal said Hamas was offering Israel a 10-year truce if it withdraws from all lands it seized in the 1967 war.

He confirmed that Hamas would be satisfied with a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders — implicitly accepting that Israel would exist alongside that state. But Mashaal stressed the group would never outright recognize the Jewish state.

‘We agree to a (Palestinian) state on pre-67 borders, with Jerusalem as its capital with genuine sovereignty without settlements but without recognizing Israel,’ Mashaal told reporters.”

The backtracking has already started, since Hamas isn’t softening their stance that Israel must go:

“Hamas later said it wouldn't necessarily accept the results of a peace referendum, the Associated Press reported, and Hamas leader Khalid Mashaal said from Damascus the group won't recognize Israel. Mashaal offered Israel a 10-year truce if it withdraws from lands seized in 1967, AP added.

The Islamic group which seized control of the Gaza Strip in June is sworn to Israel's destruction, and launches regular rocket attacks against Israeli towns, killing and maiming citizens.”

Frankly, President Carter is such an idiot that he’s eventually going to fall out of the ‘useful idiot’ category even for groups like Hamas.
