Monday. The start of a new work week. Time to get busy, send to some kudosfaxblasts, revolutionize outside the box. How ’bout a beer?
It’s probably not beer that Carter had been drinking when he decided to talk with Hamas. More then likely, he has just sniffed too many boiled peanuts. Which would also account for the majority of his policies going back to when he was elected president by around 1/10th of the vote
JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel’s secret service has declined to assist U.S. agents guarding former U.S. President Jimmy Carter during a visit in which Israeli leaders have shunned him, U.S. sources close to the matter said on Monday.
Carter angered the Israeli government with plans to meet Hamas’s top leader, Khaled Meshaal, in Syria, and for describing Israeli policy in the occupied Palestinian territories as “a system of apartheid” in a 2006 book.
Good for them. If Carter wants to play these games, he can do it on his own. Also
Israel has also rejected Carter’s request to meet jailed Palestinian uprising leader Marwan Barghouthi, who is seen as a possible successor to President Mahmoud Abbas, a spokesman for Carter said.
Barghouthi was convicted in 2004 of murder by an Israeli court over the killing of four Israelis and a Greek Orthodox monk in attacks by Palestinian militants. He is serving five life sentences.
Why am I not surprised?
PS: Is Jimmy Carter Darth Sideous?
