Page 213

In his new book, 'Palestine: Peace not Apartheid', former President Jimmy Carter separates those supporting Israel from those who approve of anti-Semite rhetoric. Last week, fourteen more members of the Carter Center in Atlanta resigned, claiming they could no longer look the other way. Silence is regarded as acceptance.

"It is imperative that the general Arab community and all significant Palestinian groups make it clear that they will end the suicide bombings and other acts of terrorism when international laws and the ultimate goals of the Road map for Peace are accepted by Israel". This is a quote from page 213 from the above mentioned book.

The failed former president has never been shy about voicing his anti-Semitic opinions. A famous quote of his came during a conversation with a campaign advisor as he was running re-election of the presidency: he was heard saying when he was re-elected, he'd be able to f*** the Jews. He blamed Jews on Wall Street for ruining the national economy, not his inept attempts of governing.

These fourteen board members resigned in protest of the latest Carter book. Scholars have criticized the book for inaccuracy and flat out lies, as well as taking intellectual properties of others without permission or acknowledgement. Two members, both Emory professors resigned as the publisher and Carter's book tour introduced the book. Professor Stein was pooh-poohed by Carter as a disgruntled board member.

Carter was a secret advisor for Arafat on political issues and public relations, up until his death. The Carter Center is heavily funded by the Saudi Arabians.

Here's a 'you might be an anti-Semite' type of list, offered up by columnist Julia Goran:
11. cheered and danced on 9/11
10. killed Bobby Kennedy
9. named a youth soccer tournament after Saddam Hussein and opposed even the first Gulf War
8. planned and carried out the 1973 Khartoum murders of the U.S. Ambassador and the U.S. Charges d'Affaires to Sudan
7. enjoy theocratic rule
6. believe that Hitler didn't finish the job
5. insist that Israel was behind the 9/11 attacks
4. pay tribute to suicide bombers
3. named a region of the Jenin refugee camp after the first suicide terrorist in Iraq who killed four American soldiers
2. turn the purposely apolitical Olympic Games into a bloodbath
1. profess to hate America more than al Qaeda does and wish the latter success in its struggle against the U.S.

Nobel Prize laureate James Watson tells Esquire Magazine to be anti-Semitic is justifiable. His area of expertise is DNA structure. If Dr. Watson says so, it must be true.

LGF has a link to today of an interview Jimmy gave on Al Jazerra just 3 days ago. Its pretty disgusting.

I have utter contempt for Carter for what he did to this country and Israel. No amount of finger pointing by he and his wife will convince me that he is blameless in the chaos which slowly took hold during his Presidency.
Your post reveals exactly what he is, his actions and travels just back up your conclusion.

Jimmy Carter is fast on his way to becoming disgraced, maybe even more than Richard Nixon was. How could anyone so anti-Semitic win a peace prize....

And to think I used to think he was a decent human being, though inept.

I had to promise myself a great reward just to make it through the clip Nate linked to. The comments on Little Green Footballs, 165 of them, were comforting to read though.

He, Carter, continues to amaze me and not in a good way.

Great post Karen!

Also want to volunteer my kitchen services at the 5-person dinner you designed at my question. THAT is a lively bunch of guests and the evening would go merrily into the wee hours, I know.
