Jimmy Carter 'distressed' by Gaza visit.

Former US President Jimmy Carter has said he had to "hold back tears" while viewing destruction on a visit to Gaza.

He is due to meet leaders from Hamas, which controls Gaza but is considered a terrorist group by western countries.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/8102631.stm

If you mess with the bull, you will get the horn.

What does Hamas expect? A hug?

But go ahead and weep jimmy, your good at that.

And don't forget the ritual hand wringing...

Nope.
1) Ground forces, aka "targets". Which they didn't really get.
2) Israelis meeting out wholesale death and destruction on Gazans and their property in general, thus renwing the Hamas politcal lease for life with them. That they did get.

So the Hamas is still mostly intact, still in control, not going anywhere, and as usual its your ordinary Palestinian civy which gets to pay out of their own backs, to the Hamas and Israel alike.

Most ironic of all: All the munitions pelted on the tunnels into Gaza, which just momentarily disrupted traffic, since Gaza lives by the tunnels, meaning there's no way for Israel to shut down traffic in them, except momentarily.

And then it turns out there was after all room for an international bargain to attempt to intercept smuggling of munitions to Hamas well before it reached these tunnels. Which begs the question what the hell the big Israeli idea was all along? While simultaneously indicating that the main Israeli problem is that in order to get anything to work here, they need international help, and lots of it, since they now lack the means to deal with the situation on their own.

Jimmy Carter is one of the people Robert Mugabe can thank for still having a job. The fact that he continues to carry relevancy with some people on that alone is scary.

I would have thought that Gaza would have been distressed by Jimmy Carter's visit.

Carter should just go away. He was useless as a president and nothing but an Arab sympathizer now.
Spineless men like him are more harm than good for Democracy.

Seriously, i personally thing its gotten to the point that both sides have done so much to mess things up that glassing the entire region and making it into the worlds largest radioactive car park is starting to sound like a good option.

Absolutely rediculous..."both sides". Let me ask ya something...if the terrorists (and Islamic countries) stopped attacking Israel what happens? Right, we would have peace over night.

Jimmy Carter is too old to allow himself to get stressed over anything...he might just bust an artery. One can only hope...

Why didn't Jimmy mention anything about Hamas bulldozing Palestinian homes in Gaza and throwing women & children out on the streets?

When Israel knocks down the homes of Palestinian terrorists or demolishes Arab buildings constructed illegally in Jerusalem, the international community has a field day condemning their actions. But when Hamas is the one operating the bulldozers, the world is silent... The silence is deafening.

Hamas wrecks 'illegal' Gaza homes

Monday, 17 May 2010 17:23 UK

Hamas, the Palestinian movement which controls the Gaza Strip, has forced residents of a southern town from their homes and demolished their houses.
The radical Islamist group says people living at the edge of the town of Rafah had built their homes illegally on government land.
Witnesses said dozens of people were pushed out of their homes but Hamas says the number has been exaggerated.
Palestinians in Gaza have been angered by the demolitions.
Club-wielding Hamas policemen - and some female police officers wearing face-covering veils - forced people from their homes and then brought in bulldozers.

I think Jimmy Carter should stay long enough to help rebuild a couple of the demolished buildings. Jimmy has experience building houses now. During that time Hamas can explain why they used the buildings to store munitions.
