The Idiot who caused the problem

An Unnecessary War

By Jimmy Carter

I know from personal involvement that the devastating invasion of Gaza by Israel could easily have been avoided. (yeah Jimmy if you arranged for the Gazans to have nukes or biological weapons they could have killed all those pesky Jews by now)

After visiting Sderot last April and seeing the serious psychological damage caused by the rockets that had fallen in that area, my wife, Rosalynn, and I declared their launching from Gaza to be inexcusable and an act of terrorism. Although casualties were rare (three deaths in seven years), the town was traumatized by the unpredictable explosions. About 3,000 residents had moved to other communities, and the streets, playgrounds and shopping centers were almost empty. Mayor Eli Moyal assembled a group of citizens in his office to meet us and complained that the government of Israel was not stopping the rockets, either through diplomacy or military action. (so why didn't you go to the Gazans or the UN and demand them to cease or push for harder sanctions)

Knowing that we would soon be seeing Hamas leaders from Gaza and also in Damascus, we promised to assess prospects for a cease-fire. From Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman, who was negotiating between the Israelis and Hamas, we learned that there was a fundamental difference between the two sides. Hamas wanted a comprehensive cease-fire in both the West Bank and Gaza, and the Israelis refused to discuss anything other than Gaza. (maybe because they were firing missiles everyday into Israel from Gaza, the Jews ain't bombing the west bank ya git, not to mention Hamas's charter states no peace until the complete destruction of Israel)

We knew that the 1.5 million inhabitants of Gaza were being starved, as the U.N. special rapporteur on the right to food had found that acute malnutrition in Gaza was on the same scale as in the poorest nations in the southern Sahara, with more than half of all Palestinian families eating only one meal a day. (that's a lie food and medicine were allowed through in bounty, not to mention the thriving agriculture business that existed in Gaza at the pullout that the Gazans destroyed, committing themselves to aid rather than trade)

Palestinian leaders from Gaza were noncommittal on all issues, claiming that rockets were the only way to respond to their imprisonment and to dramatize their humanitarian plight. The top Hamas leaders in Damascus, however, agreed to consider a cease-fire in Gaza only, provided Israel would not attack Gaza and would permit normal humanitarian supplies to be delivered to Palestinian citizens. (Supplies were always delivered and non-committal is a nice way of saying they told you to f**k off, you also fail to mention that they refused to cease firing rockets endlessly into Israel)

After extended discussions with those from Gaza, these Hamas leaders also agreed to accept any peace agreement that might be negotiated between the Israelis and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who also heads the PLO, provided it was approved by a majority vote of Palestinians in a referendum or by an elected unity government. (the hamass leaders must laugh their ass off every time this fool shows up)

Since we were only observers, and not negotiators, (THANK GOD) we relayed this information to the Egyptians, and they pursued the cease-fire proposal. After about a month, the Egyptians and Hamas informed us that all military action by both sides and all rocket firing would stop on June 19, for a period of six months, and that humanitarian supplies would be restored to the normal level that had existed before Israel's withdrawal in 2005 (about 700 trucks daily). (and the sea would part and give forth wealth and riches)

We were unable to confirm this in Jerusalem because of Israel's unwillingness to admit to any negotiations with Hamas, but rocket firing was soon stopped and there was an increase in supplies of food, water, medicine and fuel. Yet the increase was to an average of about 20 percent of normal levels. And this fragile truce was partially broken on Nov. 4, when Israel launched an attack in Gaza to destroy a defensive tunnel being dug by Hamas inside the wall that encloses Gaza. (What is a defensive tunnel, is it defensive because the missiles of terror are brought through it and to defend Islam all jews must die ? so there fore the tunnel is defensive)

On another visit to Syria in mid-December, (Which is illegal for you to even visit) I made an effort for the impending six-month deadline to be extended. It was clear that the preeminent issue was opening the crossings into Gaza. Representatives from the Carter Center visited Jerusalem, met with Israeli officials and asked if this was possible in exchange for a cessation of rocket fire. The Israeli government informally proposed that 15 percent of normal supplies might be possible if Hamas first stopped all rocket fire for 48 hours. This was unacceptable to Hamas, and hostilities erupted. (All unsanctioned negotiations that he was asked not to get involved in, but he knows best remember it was his wisdom that installed the Mad Mullahs in Iran)

After 12 days of "combat," the Israeli Defense Forces reported that more than 1,000 targets were shelled or bombed. During that time, Israel rejected international efforts to obtain a cease-fire, (where were the International efforts for a cease fire from 3 years of the jews being shelled) with full support from Washington. Seventeen mosques, the American International School, many private homes and much of the basic infrastructure of the small but heavily populated area have been destroyed. (maybe because that's where the missiles and terrorists were hiding, ya think) This includes the systems that provide water, electricity and sanitation. Heavy civilian casualties are being reported by courageous medical volunteers from many nations, as the fortunate ones operate on the wounded by light from diesel-powered generators. (I'm playing the worlds smallest violen for the worlds smallest sob story)

The hope is that when further hostilities are no longer productive, (He's wishing for a jewish failure, and actually put it in print) Israel, Hamas and the United States will accept another cease-fire, at which time the rockets will again stop and an adequate level of humanitarian supplies will be permitted to the surviving Palestinians, with the publicized agreement monitored by the international community. The next possible step: a permanent and comprehensive peace. (When was the last time this man was checked for alsheimers or any other brain ailment?)

The writer was president from 1977 to 1981. He founded the Carter Center, a nongovernmental organization advancing peace and health worldwide, in 1982.

Ex President Carter Was an asshole and disaster as a President. His Interference in foreign policy matters over and over , since leaving office has led to one disaster after another. The Founding of the first Terrorist state was his child and the war we are fighting now can be laid directly at his feat. The fact that a paper will print this fools word only ads to my disdain for the printed media. My advice sit down and shut up you ole senile goat.
