Former President Jimmy Carter to meet with Hamas


According to, Al-Jazeera is reporting former President Carter is going to meet with the leader of Hamas.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter plans to meet Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal in Syria next week, despite U.S. efforts to isolate the Islamist Palestinian group, Al Jazeera television said.

The meeting was expected to take place in the Syrian capital Damascus on April 18, and may also include former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan and former South African President Nelson Mandela.

“Senior Hamas officials have confirmed the Carter meeting but declined to speak on camera out of both political and security considerations,” Al Jazeera said on Thursday.

Washington shuns Hamas as a terrorist group and has joined Israel in supporting efforts to isolate it.

For the first time a leader of Hamas will not be the person in the room most dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

Wait until Alan Dershowitz hears about his trip.
