CAIRO (AP) - Former President Carter is meeting with a Hamas delegation from Gaza, part of a series of talks with the Islamic militant group that has drawn sharp criticism from U.S. and Israeli officials.
An Associated Press reporter saw the Hamas delegation going into the meeting Thursday at a Cairo hotel and a Hamas coordinator in Egypt said they were meeting with Carter. The coordinator spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
The meeting was held under heavy security shortly after Carter met Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
Hamas officials said Wednesday that Carter's meetings with its leaders will boost the group's legitimacy despite criticism by Israel and the U.S. government of the former president's personal peace mission.
So, there's really no other way to say this: Is Jimmy Carter a complete moron? I know siding with terrorists is what many liberals seem to think is cool, but even the Hamas "official" recognized that Carter's visit would "boost the group's legitimacy."
The stupidity of this visit astounds me. But it's the way the American left works -- if someone shows that they are violent and kills innocent people, the best thing to do is try and appease them so they will only kill other people and not you.
Funny. The last time Carter tried his goofy hand at massaging terrorists' egos, we had Americans held hostage for more than a year.
It took a Republican about 20 minutes to get them released, by simply letting the terrorists know we would be willing to wipe their nation off the face of the Earth if they kept screwing around.
So, while Carter goes and kisses terrorists' asses, the terrorists are enjoying the publicity, and trying to think of new and creative ways to kill people in order to get what they want.
Funny -- conservatives who support war are labeled "warmongers" by the left, but Muslims who kill people for giggles are somehow viewed as the victims.
