Carter: 'Europe supine, Bush a war criminal, Gaza blockade one of the greatest human rights crimes'

There's an appalling interview in Monday's al-Guardian that ought to make the United States think seriously about revoking the passport of its former President who laid a wreath on the grave of the world's premier terrorist last month.
Britain and other European governments should break from the US over the international embargo on Gaza, former US president Jimmy Carter told the Guardian yesterday. Carter, visiting the Welsh border town of Hay for the Guardian literary festival, described the EU's position on the Israeli-Palestinian dispute as "supine" and its failure to criticise the Israeli blockade of Gaza as "embarrassing".

Referring to the possibility of Europe breaking with the US in an interview with the Guardian, he said: "Why not? They're not our vassals. They occupy an equal position with the US."

The blockade on Hamas-ruled Gaza, imposed by the US, EU, UN and Russia - the so-called Quartet - after the organisation's election victory in 2006, was "one of the greatest human rights crimes on Earth," since it meant the "imprisonment of 1.6 million people, 1 million of whom are refugees". "Most families in Gaza are eating only one meal per day. To see Europeans going along with this is embarrassing," Carter said.

He called on the EU to reassess its stance if Hamas agreed to a ceasefire in Gaza. "Let the Europeans lift the embargo and say we will protect the rights of Palestinians in Gaza, and even send observers to Rafah gate [Gaza's crossing into Egypt] to ensure the Palestinians don't violate it."

...

Carter said the Quartet's policy of not talking to Hamas unless it recognised Israel and fulfilled two other conditions had been drafted by Elliot Abrams, an official in the national security council at the White House. He called Abrams "a very militant supporter of Israel". The ex-president, whose election-monitoring Carter Centre had just certified Hamas's election victory as free and fair, addressed the Quartet for 12 minutes at its session in London in 2006. He urged it to talk to Hamas, which had offered to form a unity government with Fatah, the losers.

"The Quartet's final document had been drafted in Washington in advance, and not a line was changed," he said.

...

Last night, before a packed crowd at Hay, Carter spoke of his "horror" at America's involvement in torturing prisoners, saying he wanted the next US president to promise never to do so again.

He left an intriguing hint that George Bush might even face prosecution on war crimes charges once he left office.

When pressed by Philippe Sands QC on Bush's recent admission that he had authorised interrogation procedures widely seen as amounting to torture, Carter replied that he was sure Bush would be able to live a peaceful, "productive life - in our country".

Sands, an international legal expert, said afterwards that he understood that to be "clear confirmation" that while Bush would face no challenge in his own country, "what happened outside the country was another matter entirely".
Can you say treason?

Carter is an embarrassment to the United States every time he sets foot on foreign soil. He is also conducting foreign policy as a private citizen. His passport ought to be revoked and the Logan Act should be used to put a stop to his antics.

Carter says something very telling here. He says that observers should be sent to the Egyptian side of Rafah to make sure it's sealed and EU should lift the the fictional blockade - to ensure the Palithugs' "rights" [to murder more Jews, I presume].

(We prefer that they do their shopping in Egypt or somewhere else far, far away.)

It's high time for Carter to be put in a straightjacket and locked away in a padded cell.

Jimmy Carter hates Israel, he hates his own country and he sides with their enemies. He's become a moonbat in his dotage.

It almost sounds like Carter's putting out a fatwa or call for a "hit" on Bush, albeit a legal hit. With the latest developments in the U.S. accepting the International Criminal Court (ICC), we're even more inviting antiAmerican haters to pursue this kind of stuff.
