Carter to Head UN Commission on Israel?

Sphere: Related Content

According to sources, he was asked:

UNITED NATIONS — As Palestinian Arab rockets struck two Israeli towns yesterday, U.N. bodies prepared to launch no fewer than two overlapping "fact-finding" missions to second-guess Israel's anti-terrorist tactics. President Carter could head one of those missions.
Emphasis mine.

...And yesterday in
Geneva, the U.N. Human Rights Council, which in its five months of existence has failed to pass one resolution on any country other than Israel, concluded its third emergency session on the Jewish state. In the session's resolution, the council called on its president, Ambassador Alfonso de Alba of Mexico, to establish a fact-finding mission to investigate the incident at Beit Hanoun.

A diplomat in Geneva who requested anonymity said the sponsors of the resolution are planning to ask Mr. Carter to head the investigation. Other candidates include the diplomats Martti Ahtisaari of
Finland and Sadako Ogata of Japan.

The UN can save alot of money by selecting Carter, he can write the report condemning Israel without even leaving Georgia.

It's hilarious (or sad) that the UN would even consider Carter, a man who failed his big test in responding to terrorism in 1979 and will undoubtedly find that Israel had no right to respond as they did in Lebanon.
