Can anybody shut Carter up???
He says Palestinians living in a cage in Gaza....
Former US President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that Palestinians are "living in a cage" in Gaza and that the militant group Hamas must be included in all major efforts for peace.
Carter was in Syria with an international group of veteran statesmen known as the Elders, which includes Ireland's former President Mary Robinson, and sets out to offer "collective influence and experience to support peace building."
Syrian President Bashar Assad, who also attended the Elders meeting, told Carer Israel is not willing or able to make peace with the Palestinians. The comments were reported by DP News, a Syrian news agency.
Separately, Carter said at the meeting, "We believe that Hamas should be included in all the major efforts to peace ... It is part of the Palestinian people," Carter said. He added that "1.5 million Palestinians are held in a cage or prison while their human rights are taken away."
