Carter Calls for Terrorist Funding

Jimmy Carter, the horrid president who raised taxes on oil during an oil shortage, can now be given credit for openly advocating the funding of a known terrorist organization. Yes folks, after calling the war in Iraq "unjust," he is now praising and advocating for an organization determined to kill Jews.

"The Palestinian Government is destitute, and in desperate financial straits. I hope that support for the new government will be forthcoming," Carter said at a Jerusalem press conference.

As some of you may know, Hamas won the election in Palestine recently and Carter was all but too happy to congratulate them. Carter, for whatever reason, decided to advocate funding for these terrorists. Now, I've known Carter to be an impotent President for some time now, but I am absolutely shocked at this perspective coming from any American President. In fact, I'd be shocked if even Clinton said this too; and he refused taking bin Laden when given the chance 3 times.

Many people seem to think that now that there is a democratically elected government in Palestine, it's somehow morally "good." I think we can simply acknowledge that terror and murder is the will of the people of that country and treat it appropriately. Just because a government is democratically elected does not mean it isn't a terrorist government. Many on the left seem to forget (or not realize) this.

My point is Carter's positions have been, and still are, detrimental and dangerous to this country as well as the other civilized nations in the world. Also, as an aside, the AP version of this story notably leaves out this little quote by Carter for some reason... oh, THAT media bias.
