Cynthia McKinney was on board boat intercepted by Israeli Navy

She’s giving Jimmy Carter a run for his money.

The Israeli government was not amused.

Israel Tuesday lambasted McKinney — the Green Party’s 2008 candidate for the U.S. presidency and a former Democratic congresswoman from Georgia — for taking part in the maritime mission.

In a written statement, the Consulate General of Israel to the Southeast, based in Atlanta, Georgia, said McKinney “has taken it upon herself to commit an act of provocation,” endangering herself and the crew.

“We regret that during this time of crisis, while Israel is battling with the terrorist organization of Hamas and defending its citizens, that we are forced to deal with Ms. McKinney’s irresponsible behavior,” the statement read.

The trip was the Free Gaza Solidarity Movement’s sixth in as many months.
