Carter can't wait to stick his nose into the Middle East peace process

Good news for all you Jimmy Carter fans - of which I am sure there are many on this site. You just can't keep a good man down and it appears that the most sanctimonious ex-president in history will be able to flit around the world to his heart's content, meddling in conflicts where he will either make them worse or decide them in favor of America's enemies.

This goes double for his favorite hot spot, the Middle East:

When asked by CNN if it would be unwise for Obama to focus on the peace process while the United States is facing an economic crisis, Carter said the process was too important to put off.

He related that when he became president, the United States was facing both an energy crisis and a troubled economy, but he still found a way to pursue peace in the Middle East.

"I think is a very important issue, I don't have any doubt in my mind that to find peace and security and human rights for the Palestinians and also for Israel would be a major factor in reducing the threat of terror," Carter told CNN.

Carter added that the failure to reach a settlement is one of the main causes of the "animosity and hatred and even violent acts against America and our allies."

Over the last year, Carter has taken on an increased role in the talks, offering to becoming a conduit between Hamas, Washington and even Israel. He has spoken out against Israel's blockade on the Gaza Strip , calling it a "crime and an atrocity" on Thursday, and has blasted U.S. attempts to undermine Hamas as counterproductive.

This may be the densest man ever to be president. He brags about striving for Middle East peace despite the energy crisis (and unemployment crisis, and interest rate crisis, and the crisis in confidence, to name a few others he ignored during his presidency) - as if he solved those little problems and then went on to the Israeli-Palestinian matter.

Obama, of course, needs to bring the economy back from the brink and not waste his time trying to get the Palestinians to agree that Israel has a right to exist. If he is detoured from that task, there won't be much of a United States left to worry about.

And note Carter's sympathy for the terrorists in Hamas. These are thugs who have sworn to murder every Jew alive - not just every Israeli.  Also note that no one is dying or getting killed as a result of the Israeli government's cutting off fuel - a response to rocket attacks on their soil - another little detail Carter forgot to mention. And yet, the idiot calls what the Israeli government is doing a "crime and atrocity." What does he call rockets fired into houses? A celebration that got out of hand, perhaps.

Gee. Listening to Carter, one would think he is more sympathetic to the Palestinian terrorists who receive funding from President "Wipe Israel off the map" Ahmadinejad than he is America's long term, democratic ally.

What a tool.
