What else could possibly explain Carter's second visit to Hamas, a Terrorist group funded by Iran, the same country that humiliated him during his presidency. A presidency held hostage to the Iran Hostage Crisis. It's almost as if he wants these Brutal killers to "like him".
Carter Claims that he's there to broker a release of the hostage soldier, Gilad Shalit, but neither Israel, nor the U.S. Government have requested, nor do they want his participation. As Condoleezza Rice said before the trip, via State Department spokesman Sean McCormack "Carter had opened himself up to 'exploitation' by both Hamas and the Syrian government. (Since Carter also met with Syrian President Bashar Assad.). The two Palestinians he met with an hour ago, are considered terrorists by the U.S. government and Israel accuses them of masterminding attacks that have killed hundreds of civilians.
I suppose that Carter has forgotten the lessons learned about dealing with the Iranians, you don't negotiate with Terrorists. He is being used as a tool in their propaganda machine to lend legitimacy to their government and to their cause. Not wanting to leave an impression that Carter won any concessions, Hamas said Friday that Shalit would "not see the light" until Palestinian prisoners are also released in an exchange - code for "we want hundreds released for this one". Talk about your slap in the face.
In a move reminiscent of the Nazi Party, Hamas, once a minority group in Palestine, has forcibly seized control of Gaza from Fatah in June, utilizing financing and weapons provided by the Iranian Government. They then proceeded to setup a Rival regime to the legitimate government of President Mahmoud Abbas' West Bank Government. Just as the Nazi's their stated purpose is the death and destruction and displacement of all Jews.
