    In a news story reported by Israel's oldest newspaper with enough jaw-dropping irony to make your head explode ...<blockquote> Hamas has foiled an attempt by Palestinian militants to attack former U.S. president Jimmy Carter during his visit to the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian source told news agencies on Tuesday.

    According to the source, militants linked with Al-Qaida planted two roadside bombs at a border crossing between Gaza and Israel with the intent of striking Carter's vehicle on his way out of the coastal territory. Witnesses reported seeing Hamas forces patrolling near the Erez crossing and detonating the explosives. </blockquote>http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1093353.html

    Al-Qaeda (and possibly Al-Qaida and Al-Queda) is confused. :D

    Two thoughts on this:

    1. Hamas doesn't like the competition.

    2. Eliminating Carter would be eliminating one of Islamic terrorism's biggest supporters.
