Announcing "we are leading our people to death" may have been too much.
Maybe it was his extremely punchable face. Maybe it's frustration over being dragged into a Hamas war, which it started just to sabotage its own unity agreement, which most Muslims in the West Bank and Gaza seem to want, while Hamas doesn't.
And the time he announced, accidentally, that "we are leading our people to death" may have been a Freudian slip too far.
But they're probably just Islamophobes.
Palestinian Arab sources said Tuesday that Gaza residents attacked Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri Saturday evening, near the Shifa Hospital.
Abu Zuhri had arrived at the hospital for an interview with a news outlet.
The residents blamed Hamas for the death of family members and for destruction of their homes. Armed Hamas terrorists from the Izzedine al-Kassam Brigades extricated Abu Zuri and arrested the angry residents.
Good to see that Jimmy Carter's favorite terrorist group is continuing its long tradition of democratic rule and respect for human rights.
