Getting Jimmy Carter

Former American President and current cool-as-shit badass Jimmy Carter has pissed off both Israeli and American administrations after meeting with Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal while on his trip to Syria on April 13. Carter also broke with US policy by laying a wreath on the grave of former PLO leader Yasser Arafat in Ramallah.

Carter, who has long worked on the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians, Jews and Arabs, and throughout the Middle East, has now been made to look like a bad guy by Israel and the United States. This because he wants to bring peace.

New American definition of "peace," noun: When everybody does what you tell them to do; not to be confused with actual open discussion or a broad acceptance that there are many points of view in a dispute.
