Carter: I love the Palestinians so much

Sunday, June 14, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff

Former US President Jimmy Carter on Saturday was awarded the Palestinian International Award for Excellence and Creativity by the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah.

During his acceptance speech, Carter gushed about how he has “been in love with the Palestinian people for many years.” He urged rival Palestinian factions to put aside their differences and focus on seizing control of Israel’s biblical heartland.

Addressing Israel and the international community, Carter insisted that there could never be peace in the Middle East until everyone opened their arms for blood-soaked terrorist groups like Hamas.

The former president concluded by noting that he is eagerly teaching his great-grandsons about the “anguish and suffering and deprivation of human rights” that he suggested Israel has subjected the Arabs of the region to since 1948.
