"When I go to a dictatorship, I only have to talk to one person and that's the dictator, because he speaks for all the people" - Jimmy Carter quoted in Ha'aretz.
Thug hugging former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is earning a lot of respect among his new found friends in Hamas during his tour of the Middle East. On Thursday, he met with officials from the Islamic militant group urging them to "stop militants from firing rockets into southern Israel" - Carter meets with more Hamas leaders, defends peace efforts.
And, as if to underline the deep respect, admiration and trust that Hamas has developed for Jimmy the Dhimmi, the militants of Gaza did what? Oh dear! Umm, er ... they fired rockets into southern Israel: seventeen of them on Thursday and sixteen on Friday - Qassam hits power lines in Sderot causing blackout.
TOUR NOTES FOR A DHIMMI:
"Hamas proudly proclaims that 'the Koran is our constitution, Jihad is our way, and death for the sake of God is our highest aspiration.' Hamas leaders promise their followers not just rewards here on Earth but in the next world as well - a selling point neither Nazism nor Communism could offer. As a matter of religious conviction, Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal cannot accept Israel's existence. Hamas believes every inch of Israel and, indeed, of any land ever ruled by Muslims is 'an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgment Day.'" - Carter's Confusion - Clifford D. May.
Next stop. A meeting with a cuthroat murderer in Damascus.
