As you all know, I am Georgia-born and raised and very proud of that. I love my home state and it’s the place where my parents were laid to rest. However, there is one thing that causes me utmost embarrassment from my home state: former President Jimmy Carter. And his recent incoherent ranting about Hamas and Israel further proves that sentiment. Jimmy Carter is an anti-Semite.
As reported by Fox News, “Former President Jimmy Carter once again is getting way out in front of the U.S. government on the Middle East, co-authoring an op-ed in which he calls for Washington to recognize designated terror group Hamas as a legitimate “political actor” — while blasting Israel for its military campaign in the Gaza Strip.The scathing column on ForeignPolicy.com was written by Carter and Ireland’s former president Mary Robinson.”
I guess stupidity comes in twos and as Garth Brooks once sang, “I got friends in low places.” What would compel a former U.S. president to pen a piece supporting an Islamic terrorist organization? Or perhaps Carter agrees with Nancy Pelosi that Hamas is a humanitarian organization. Jimmy Carter’s position reflects the deeply rooted anti-Semitism that exists in the Democrat party. It is a fundamental position of the progressive socialist Left.
According to Fox, “the article called the current conflict a “humanitarian catastrophe,” and while acknowledging Hamas’ “indiscriminate targeting” of Israelis, focused its criticism on Israel. “There is no humane or legal justification for the way the Israeli Defense Forces are conducting this war,” they wrote. “Israeli bombs, missiles, and artillery have pulverized large parts of Gaza, including thousands of homes, schools, and hospitals.” “
Perhaps Jimmy fails to acknowledge that the IDF has been sending text messages, calling, and dropping leaflets to warn Gaza residents of incoming targets. It is Hamas who has told its own people not to heed those warnings, and as we shared here, have actively stated they would use their own people as human shields.
Has Carter missed the fact that Hamas uses schools and hospitals as ammunition storage locations and bases of operations? It is just unconscionable that the truth is so rejected by the liberal left when it comes to Israel. And if that be the case, how can it be that ANY American citizen who is Jewish ally themselves with this Democrat party?
Because Carter’s op-ed piece and sentiment is no different than that of Barack Hussein Obama, John Kerry, and Valerie Jarrett. Perhaps the true religion of American Jews JINOs (Jews In Name Only) is liberal progressivism. Apparently, they actually care less about what happens to Israel because their political party alignment runs deeper in their veins.
Let’s see what the South Florida Jewish Congressional representatives Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Ted Deutch, and Lois Frankel have to say about Jimmy Carter’s op-ed piece — don’t hold your breath for any condemnation.
Fox says, “former Presidents Carter and Robinson (a group of former statesmen and activists) also pushed the West to formally recognize Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip but is classified as a terror group by the U.S. They lauded the recently announced unity agreement between Hamas and Fatah, which controls the West Bank (Judea and Samaria, let’s use the right language) — an agreement that Obama’s State Department has voiced serious concerns about.”
And don’t forget, Fatah was the original Palestinian terrorist organization established by Yasser Arafat, responsible for the Munich Olympics slaughter of members of the Israeli team.
And of course it was former Democrat President Bill Clinton who invited the terrorist Arafat into the White House and Hillary who embraced Arafat’s wife.
Sadly, we don’t teach history in America so our children and grandchildren have no clue about the terrorist history behind the region. They are sent to these liberal dominated college campuses where pro-Islamic terrorist professors fill there heads with revisionist history — and propaganda. We have allowed Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups to influence political, educational, and cultural societal aspects of our country and spew forth their hate-filled message.
Carter, in what can only be termed as treasonous, has voiced support for Hamas in the past, and in 2009 visited with Hamas leaders on a high-profile trip. I do remember then-President Carter bringing Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat to Camp David in signing the peace accords. However, I also remember it was the Muslim Brotherhood who assassinated Anwar Sadat because he sought peace with Israel. And it is Carter’s beloved Hamas that is the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood — an inconvenient truth.
“The United States and EU should recognize that Hamas is not just a military but also a political force,” Carter and Robinson wrote. “Hamas cannot be wished away, nor will it cooperate in its own demise. Only by recognizing its legitimacy as a political actor — one that represents a substantial portion of the Palestinian people — can the West begin to provide the right incentives for Hamas to lay down its weapons.”
That statement clearly identifies the delusion of Jimmy Carter in believing Hamas, a terrorist organization, deserves legitimacy. He believes an Islamic terrorist organization whose charter calls for the destruction of a sovereign state will lay down its weapons once provided with the “right incentives” — what exactly are those? In other words, Carter, like Neville Chamberlain and Obama, believe that appeasement and negotiation with evil results in peace.
This could not be further from the truth but I suppose according to Jimmy Carter, Islamic State is just misunderstood as well and deserves recognition and legitimacy. As a matter of fact, if the West would just “provide the right incentives” to Islamic totalitarians and jihadists we could all coexist in peace – the problem is, the only “right incentive” they seek is our subjugation or destruction.
Jimmy Carter, the base anti-Semitism of the liberal Left, and the abject weakness of the progressive socialists in the Democrat party form the enticing aroma leading Islamists to believe victory is near — and causes grave concern for Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and the people of Israel who thought America was their ally. America is, but the Democrat Party is not.
