What did you expect? It’s Jimmy Carter, after all:
Former President Jimmy Carter embraced a leading Hamas figure Tuesday, according to participants in a meeting that infuriated Israeli officials already upset by Carter’s freelance Mideast peace mission.
Carter also laid a wreath at the grave of Yasser Arafat, whom the Bush administration and many Israelis blame for the breakdown of peace talks seven years ago and the violence that followed.
At a reception in the West Bank town of Ramallah organized by Carter’s office, the former president hugged Nasser Shaer, a senior Hamas politician, meeting participants said. Embraces between men are a common custom in Arab culture.
“He gave me a hug. We hugged each other, and it was a warm reception,” Shaer told The Associated Press. “Carter asked what he can do to achieve peace between the Palestinians and Israel … and I told him the possibility for peace is high.”
I’m sure Carter truly believes the “possibility for peace is high.” The question is what kind of peace Carter and his friends in Hamas envision? We know what Hamas’s definition of peace is; no Israel. Given Jimmy Carter’s record the last decade or so, one can legitimately ask whether he would be willing to meet Hamas halfway in their demands – say, eliminating only half the Jews in Israel. I’m sure Jimmy would think that a fair solution.
I sometimes daydream what historians of the future will make of people like Carter and other liberals who regularly embrace the murderous thugs of the world. I imagine them shaking their heads in wonderment at the pure stupidity on display in this day and age and chalking it up to massive drug use by the left.
To think that they actually mean it when they praise these goblins is just too horrible to contemplate.
Thomas Lifson adds: Carter is now a man to be shunned by all respectable company.
It is with a heavy heart that we are reporting to you that the attacks against our troops by American governmental bodies are continuing.

. The Traitors Ann Coulter is Too Polite to NamePeople are still buzzing over Chris Matthews’ attack on Ann Coulter and her book, “Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism.”
The “Hardball” host challenged Coulter to name one traitor in the Democrat party. “I am refusing to turn this into a personality issue,” she answered. “It’s about ideas.”
The left, of course, is adept at making personal attacks instead of talking about ideas, but conservatives are usually afraid to fight back. However, because the public wants names to be named, we’ll point out some offenders that Coulter was too kind to mention.
The undisputable choice for No. 1 Democrat traitor is Bill Clinton.
It’s too bad that so many Americans are uninformed about how Clinton betrayed the U.S. to China, which isn’t the type of thing the pro-Democrat New York Times and its followers in the media establishment like to mention.
Monica Lewinsky was the best thing that ever happened to Slick Willie. The frenzy over his little scandal of adultery and perjury diverted attention from his far more serious crime of treason. (Al Gore claims his burstin’ bladder kept him out of the loop… yeah, right.)
Anyone needing details should go to NewsMax.com and type “Clinton” and “China” or the unfortunate term “Chinagate” in the search engine at the top of the homepage. You’ll have enough reading for a week.
But wait, there’s more. How about:
