Carter Demands More Dead Jews!

What kind of bizarro world does our ex-President inhabit, when he accuses the Israelis of inciting violence by refusing to fund the people who are openly plotting their very destruction? Today's Washington Post takes a break from giving terrorists op-ed space and instead gives it to Jimmy Carter, terrorist apologist par excellence:

Israel moved yesterday to withhold funds (about $50 million per month) that the Palestinians earn from customs and tax revenue. Perhaps a greater aggravation by the Israelis is their decision to hinder movement of elected Hamas Palestinian Legislative Council members through any of more than a hundred Israeli checkpoints around and throughout the Palestinian territories. This will present significant obstacles to a government's functioning effectively.

Earth to Brother Jimmy: This is a good thing, when you de-fund those who are trying to kill you. Just because Hamas was democratically elected does not mean we are under obligation to financially assist them or give them a helping hand running their government. They openly boast of carrying out terror attacks that have killed hundreds of Israeli civilians, they clearly state that they have no intention of recognizing Israel's right to exist, and yet you demand we aid and abet them?? What kind of sick morality do you work under that states we must make it easier for our murderers to kill us??

This common commitment to eviscerate the government of elected Hamas officials by punishing private citizens may accomplish this narrow purpose, but the likely results will be to alienate the already oppressed and innocent Palestinians, to incite violence, and to increase the domestic influence and international esteem of Hamas

So James Earl Carter has laid in his excuse for Hamas and the Palestinians already - when they attack, it will not be for land-lust and Jew-hatred, it will be because of what Israel (and the US) has done to poor Hamas. Jimmy refuses to hold the Palestinians responsible for their sick choices; he doesn't ask for Hamas to take a step away from their cult of death - the Jews must do this; on faith and Jimmy's word. Oh, and note how that old liberal excuse for their cowardice is in full play - if we fight Hamas, more people will join Hamas! That's fine, Jim, we'll provide more body bags for them...

The final fantasy:

A negotiated agreement is the only path to a permanent two-state solution, providing peace for Israel and justice for the Palestinians. In fact, if Israel is willing to include the Palestinians in the process, Abbas can still play this unique negotiating role as the unchallenged leader of the PLO (not the government that includes Hamas).
It was under this umbrella and not the Palestinian Authority that Arafat negotiated with Israeli leaders to conclude the Oslo peace agreement...

So Carter expects Israel to negotiate with a man who really has no political standing with the Palestinian government, using Oslo as an example. Does Carter realize that the Israelis have no one to negotiate with? Does Carter not realize that Oslo is in shambles because Arafat and his cronies used it to demand more and more concessions and eventually launch one intifada after another? Does he see that the only reason that the Palestinians have regained control of Gaza is because Israel gave it to them unilateraly?

Carter is a sick man; an appeaser that should go down in history with Chamberlain...
