Former President Jimmy Carter, already famous for surrendering America’s interests to militant Islamists during the Iran Hostage Crisis in the late 70’s, is yet again betraying America. Last week, Carter met with Nasser Shaer, a senior Hamas politician, under the pretense of promoting “peace” in the region. Hamas, internationally recognized as a terrorist organization, has continued to fire rockets at Israeli towns and send suicide bombers to slaughter Israeli civilians.
During their meeting, Carter literally embraced Shaer as a friend and ally, and he later placed a wreath at the grave of life-long terrorist Yasser Arafat. Hamas, Carter says, must be engaged in any discussions to “lead to a final peace.” But the only “final peace” acceptable to Hamas is the same “final solution” proposed by the Nazis during WWII. Both the PLO and Hamas have the explicit goal of eradicating Israel and all of its civilians.
By embracing the Hamas leadership, Carter has sanctioned some of the bloodiest savages in human history. He should be vilified and damned for what he is: a traitor and an enemy of freedom.
The Undercurrent is a magazine distributed at college campuses and communities across the country. We release a print edition once per semester, and in the interim, regularly post additional articles, blog entries, and campus media responses reports to our website.
The Undercurrent's cultural commentary is based on Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism. Objectivism, which animates Ayn Rand's fiction, is a systematic philosophy of life. It holds that the universe is orderly and comprehensible, that man survives by reason, that his life and happiness comprise his highest moral purpose, and that he flourishes only in a society that protects his individual rights.
