NEVE DANIEL, West Bank — Former President Jimmy Carter, an outspoken critic of Israeli settlements, met Sunday with West Bank settlers in what he described as a chance to “listen” and make his views known.
Carter met with settler leader Shaul Goldstein and others at the pastoral settlement of Neve Daniel, south of Jerusalem. Carter said he was “here to listen” to the settlers, and that he hoped to “make sure they understand my own attitude toward Israel and the Jewish population in the world and toward the Jewish settlers.”
Carter has shown his anti-Israel views throughout the years. He was a poor President and is a poor former President. I suppose his desire to stay somewhere in the spot light keeps him on this mid-east run. Jimmy keep to habitat for humanity, that has a hell of a lot more honor than politics and your better and swinging a hammer than diplomacy.
