Nissan 13, 5768, 4/18/2008
I blogged just the other day about a bit of wishful-thinking, that Jimmy Carter would be arrested for harming America's security in his meetings with Hamas. I even quoted a respected security commentator who agreed.
Well, someone else agrees.
Rep. Sue Myrick (NC-9) called on Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to revoke former President Jimmy Carter’s passport. This is in response to the former President traveling to Syria to meet with Hamas, an organization officially designated by the United States as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
But, we have another fallout, Minister Yishai from Shas:
Deputy Prime Minister Eli Yishai asked former U.S. President Jimmy Carter to tell Hamas leaders, including Khaled Meshal, that he would like to meet in order to expedite a prisoner exchange that would bring home kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit.
Yishai relayed his message to Carter during a meeting on Monday. The meeting was held at the request of the former president, who wanted to meet with Israeli political leaders from across the political spectrum. The meeting was arranged through the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.
So, as you can see, politics is treachery. Shas hides itself from what is going on over the Jerusalem negotiations and now Carter.
