Cool Reception for Jimmy Carter in Israel

Hosted by

Former President Jimmy Carter said today he was "distressed" by Hamas rocket fire into Israeli border towns and that the deliberate effort to kill innocent civilians is a "despicable crime." But he still plans to meet with the leader of Hamas in Syria. The latest reports say the government of Ehud Olmert has refused to help the US Secret Service protect Carter while he's in Israel. Joel Greenberg of the Chicago Tribune was with Carter today in the Israeli town of S'derot.
