Carter States the Obvious
As reported Friday in the AP ("Carter slams Israeli actions in Gaza Strip "):
CAIRO, Egypt -- Former President Carter told a university audience here Thursday that the treatment of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip by the Israeli military was "a crime" while adding that there are "officials in Israel quite willing to meet with Hamas" and that might happen "in the near future."
Carter spoke to students and faculty at the American University in Cairo after talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and a separate three-hour meeting with Hamas officials. The Bush administration and Israel have set rules not to talk to the militant Palestinian group that controls the Gaza Strip, but Carter said, "I consider myself immune" from such restrictions.
Didn't we already know that about JC?
