Carter Says Court Ruling Cramps His Terror Talks
Ok, check this out… We all know that Jimmy Carter loves to schmooze with terror groups. He seems to like them better than Americans. But now the Supreme Court has ruled that Americans cannot provide “material support” to terrorist organizations, and it has him upset. Really??? Seriously??? Jimmy Carter just needs to go away now!
CNSNews.com has a great story on the Supreme Court ruling and Carter’s reaction. Poor, poor Hamas.
Hamas has killed hundreds of Israelis in suicide bombings, rocket assaults and other attacks since the interim Oslo peace accords were signed in 1993. It has also been responsible for the deaths of American citizens, including victims in bombings in Jerusalem in 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2003.
Carter controversially met with Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal in Damascus in April 2008, despite being advised by the State Department beforehand not to do so.
“U.S. government policy is that Hamas is a terrorist organization and we don’t believe it is in the interest of our policy or in the interest of peace to have such a meeting,” department spokesman Sean McCormack said at the time.
Carter may be “disappointed” with the ruling, but the Supreme Court puts the Constitution and the American people first. Interesting concept, eh?
