As you would expect - President Carter is being slandered in America by the media, government, and dangerous Zionist street thugs.

A human rights crime in Gaza

President Jimmy Carter

Daily News Egypt

The world is witnessing a terrible human rights crime in Gaza, where amillion and a half human beings are being imprisoned with almost no access to the outside world by sea, air, or land. An entire populationis being brutally punished.

This gross mistreatment of the Palestinians in Gaza was escalateddramatically by Israel, with United States backing, after political candidates representing Hamas won a majority of seats in thePalestinian Authority parliament in 2006. The election was unanimously judged to be honest and fair by all international observers.

Israel and the US refused to accept the right of Palestinians to form a unity government with Hamas and Fatah and now, after internal strife, Hamas alone controls Gaza. Forty-one of the 43 victorious Hamas candidates who lived in the West Bank are now imprisoned by Israel, plus an additional ten who assumed positions in the short-lived coalition cabinet.

Israeli bombs and missiles periodically strike the encapsulated area, causing high casualties among both militants and innocent women and children. Prior to the highly publicized killing of a woman and her four little children last week, this pattern was illustrated by a previous report from B'Tselem, the leading Israeli human rights organization: 106 Palestinians were killed between February 27 and March 3. Fifty-four of them were civilians who didn't take part in the fighting, and 25 were under 18 years of age.
