The new chairman of the House Foreign Relations Committee on Monday criticized fellow Democrat Jimmy Carter for plans to meet with Hamas, saying the former president holds “warped” views on the Middle East.
By meeting with the militant Islamic group that controls Gaza and does not recognize Israel’s right to exist, Carter “in effect is undermining a current policy which is not just American but held by many others,” Rep. Howard Berman, D-Calif., said in an interview with The Associated Press.
The Bush administration also has criticized Carter’s plans to meet in Syria this week with the leader of Hamas, and the plans have angered Israel. There’s been less public criticism from other Democrats.
When the Democrats think you’re too soft on terrorists… Wow…..
