On Jimmy Carter’s “Repentance”

The three D’s of antisemitism:

Demonization

Delegitimization

Double Standards

It is wise to keep those in mind when you find yourself experiencing cognitive dissonance as you listen to antisemites  who claim to eschew antisemitism. Hat tip on these 3 flags from Shai Ben-Tekoa.

Open Borders Will Prevent Smuggling (since when??)

Posted by Glezele Vayne on January 29, 2009

BS”D

Why didn’t the rest of us think of this before? We can just turn the smugglers into import/export dealers.

While we’re at it, lets burn all the legal codes of all the countries and then there will be no more crime. How do our esteemed leaders come up with this drivel, and so much of it, so frequently, so consistently?

As one of my favorite thinkers, Eugene Narrett has pointed out: “In the ordinary sense of the word the formulators of these policies and their salesmen-puppets, the politicians, are not stupid but evil: callous, power-mad and greedy. Anglo-American policies in the Middle East are not stupid or blind; they are clear-sighted and viciously consistent in facilitating jihad and keeping the cauldron of attrition simmering.”

Exhibit A: “You can’t have effective peace talks without involving Hamas”
-Jimmy Carter

More on Jimmy Carter’s ongoing relationship with the Jewish people here.

One may argue that by fueling Gaza’s untenable population explosion, the West unintentionally finances a war by proxy against the Jews of Israel. If we seriously want to avoid another generation of war in Gaza, we must have the courage to tell the Gazans that they will have to start looking after their children themselves, without UNRWA’s help.”

I would agree with Doc in his analysis that the West is conducting a proxy war against Israel, but I’m not quite as generous as the Doc in one respect. There is too much evidence to the contrary. I think it’s intentional.

Some immediate reactions:

Free Republic

Ynet

Fox News

Jimmy Carter Disgraced For Many Reasons

Posted by avideditor on May 28, 2008

Here is a great article on Dhimmi Carter. Why do evil people live so long? 

Jimmy Carter Disgraced For Many Reasons

By Joel J. Sprayregen

When it came time to judge Jimmy Carter’s presidency, Americans voters thundered:  Carter, receiving 40% of the popular vote, carrying  six states. With sound reasons: The prime rate had soared to 20%, inflation to 12.5% and unemployment to 7.5% 
More dismal than Carter’s domestic failures is the continuing damage his blunders did to international security.  Carter would not help Iran’s Shah — a strong ally of the U.S., even if not exactly a Jeffersonian democrat — withstand Khomeini’s revolution.  Carter bears responsibility for subjecting Iran to the nightmarish rule of fanatic mullahs.  All evils currently instigated by Iran — e.g., killing U.S. soldiers in Iraq, Hezbollah’s subjugation of Lebanon, Hamas’ reign of rockets and terrorism–are  attributable to Carter’s blunder.  Carter urged 150 Iranian generals to accept Khomeini. All were subsequently tortured and executed; the mullahs distributed photos of their mutilated corpses.
Iranian theocrats exhibited their respect for Carter by invading our embassy in Teheran and kidnapping diplomats — a breach of international law eschewed even by Hitler and Stalin.  Carter dithered for 444 interminable days during the crisis.  His cowardly reluctance to take action exposed our country as a paper tiger, emboldening enemies worldwide.  Hostages were released the day Ronald Reagan became President; Iranians realized we now had a leader who would act resolutely.
No Credence Due Carter
This explains why no credence is due anything Carter says regarding public policy.  To these defects of intellect and character, one more must be added:  Carter’s obsession about Israel which borders on — and trespasses into — outright anti-Semitism.  You don’t have to be Jewish to recognize the mischief Carter caused in the Middle East last week by his parleys with senior Hamas terrorist Khaled Meshaal. Michael Young of the Beirut Star editorialized:  “Carter is on a fool’s errand, complicating an already complicated situation” because his meetings with Hamas legitimate terrorists who have no interest in peaceful resolution.
The columnist added:
“You can almost hear Meshaal gasping at Carter’s naiveté as he prepares to score points off his solemn American visitor.” 
The State Department and Congressmen from both parties condemned Carter’s interference with U.S. policy of shunning Hamas until it abandons its aim of annihilating Israel. Hamas, claiming Carter won them respectability, celebrated by sending two explosive-laden cars into Israel, followed by an armored car filled with murderers, plus knocking out a power line with a rocket barrage.
I suffered a one-on-one meeting with Carter during the 1976 primaries. Carter assured me that, as a devout Christian, he was committed to Israel’s security.  He handwrote a confirmation.  It was all lies. Carter reportedly told intimates that Sen. Henry Jackson had the Jewish voters “so we’ll get the Christians.”  In 1980, Carter ordered an unprecedented vote against Israel in the UN Security Council.  He subsequently put out the lie that our delegate misunderstood instructions!  As November neared and American Jews–like their Christian neighbors–indicated that they would back Reagan in unprecedented numbers, Carter told associates, “If I get back in, I’m going to ****  the Jews.”  And so he has been trying for 28 years.
Carter’s Discredited Book
Carter wrote a mendacious book about Israel, jamming the expletive “Apartheid” into his title to achieve maximum defamatory effect, though he knows Israeli Arabs enjoy equal rights unknown in other Mideast countries. 

Scholar Kenneth Stein, ex-director of the Carter Center, wrote  that Carter’s book was,

“replete with factual errors, copied materials not cited [including maps stolen from Dennis Ross’ book with captions switched], glaring omissions and simply invented segments.”  
Even the New York Times, deriding Carter’s “narrow perspective,” charged the book with lying about Arafat’s supposedly abandoning terrorism.  Arafat was Carter’s endeared friend despite his murders of U.S. diplomats in Khartoum [machine-gunned in 1973] and Gaza [blown up in 2003].  Carter, who placed flowers on Arafat’s grave last week, edited the unrepentant master terrorist’s speeches to maximize a false spin of peace-loving.

Professor Stein and 13 other senior advisers of the Carter Center — which underwrites Carter’s travels and writings — resigned in protest over the “Apartheid” book. 

Blood money
An editorial in Investor’s Business Daily,  captioned “Jimmy Carter’s L’il Ol’ Stink Tank,” revealed that the Center’s $200 million endowment derives from multi-million-dollar gifts from Saudi princes and government, oil sheikhs, crooked Mideast bankers and Arafat cronies:  
“Arab cash flows into the Center from people known to demand something in return.  The Center’s contributions and Carter’s anti-Israel diatribes have both increased dramatically.” 
Saudi Arabia — a country in which I observed flagrant human rights violations during visits in 1995 and 1998 — routinely beheads prisoners (102 in the first half of 2007, including 3 women), chops off limbs, sentences rape victims to lashings and forbids women to drive. Carter has never criticized Saudi Arabia. Apparently, Saudi money speaks loudly to him.  Carter reserves his criticism for American Jews who make contributions to candidates they favor.
While Carter castigates Israeli leaders, including those responsible for withdrawing from Gaza, he has showered praise on dictators, including the Father-Son Dr. Strangeloves of North Korea (who let millions of their own citizens starve to death),  Hafez al-Assad (who slaughtered 20,000 of his own citizens at a place called Hama), Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Robert Mugabe, Hosni Mubarak, Tito and Ceausescu (asserting the latter two believed in “human rights”)  Democratic Party leaders are scrambling to distance Carter from their Convention and the presidential election; Americans disagree on many issues, but there is no strong pro-Hamas faction in this country.
Former Mayor Ed Koch wrote last week that Jimmy Carter was “a miserable president” and “a miserable human being now as he prepares to meet with Hamas.”  Carter should be encouraged to farm his peanuts, build houses and take more money from the Saudis.  For the sake of the security of democratic countries, he should be discouraged from meddling in foreign policy.
Joel Sprayregen, a Chicago lawyer, met Jimmy Carter twice but voted for him only once.  He was an invited guest at Carter’s Presidential Inauguration.

Jimmy Carter Shocks World & Announces Israel’s Nuke Count

Posted by avideditor on May 26, 2008

The arab Oil money has totally twisted Carter. His presidency was horrific. Now he is making a bigger fool of himself meeting with terrorist and giving up state secrets. I think Carter has always underestimated Israel. 

From GateWay Pundit 

America’s worst president strikes again…

It’s a known fact that Jimmy Carter is not a fan of Israel but to release this kind of information is very troubling- even for a Democrat.
The Times Online reported:

Israel has 150 nuclear weapons in its arsenal, former President Jimmy Carter said yesterday, while arguing that the US should talk directly to Iran to persuade it to drop its nuclear ambitions. 

His remark, made at the Hay-on-Wye festival which promotes current affairs books and literature, is startling because Israel has never admitted having nuclear weapons, let alone how many, although the world assumes their existence. Nor do US officials deviate in public from that Israeli line. Carter, who has immersed himself since his presidency in Israeli-Palestinian relations, was highly critical of Israeli settlers on the West Bank, and of Israel’s refusal to talk to elected officials of the Islamic party Hamas, although he said that Israel’s security was his prime concern.

Let’s hope this man is not privy to any more national secrets.

Is Jimmy Carter in Violation of the Logan Act?

Posted by avideditor on April 14, 2008

Jimmy Carter should be arrested now. He is a disgrace. He was the worst president ever and now he is causing more trouble since he started accepting millions from the Saudis.

Is Jimmy Carter in Violation of the Logan Act?: The Logan Act was enacted in 1799. It states in full:

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.

The origins of this law lie in the activities of Dr. George Logan, a Quaker pacifist doctor who tried to lessen tensions between the French Revolutionary government in Paris and the Federalists then leading the nascent American Republic, who tilted towards Britain. Logan traveled to France with an approving letter signed by Thomas Jefferson, and was accepted by the French government as a legitimate representative of the United States. Then-President John Adams condemned Logan for his rogue diplomacy, and decried the “temerity and impertinence of individuals affecting to interfere in public affairs between France and the United States.” One can only wonder what Adams would think of Jimmy Carter, who has brazenly announced his intention to meet with Hamas leader Khaled Meshal in Damascus later this week.

Perhaps it is in light of the Logan Act that White House Press Secretary Dana Perino emphasized, “The president believes that if president Carter wants to go, that he is doing so in his own private capacity, as a private citizen, he is not representing the United States.” It is all well and good for the White House to distance itself from the behavior of Jimmy Carter, but there is a limit to how far any American government can go in condemning the actions of a former president. The station of ex-president carries a diplomatic heft, and no one has used it with more inelegance and opportunism than Jimmy Carter, whose sabotage of American foreign policy has not been limited to Republican presidents (see Bill Clinton and North Korea). By calling on the United States to include Hamas in peace talks, and by meeting with the leader of said terrorist group in the capital a of country with which the United States does not even maintain diplomatic relations, Carter undermines a crucial plank in America’s Middle East policy.

Last year, Robert F. Turner argued that Nancy Pelosi had violated the Logan Act when she traveled to Syria against the wishes of the State Department and met with President Basher Assad. He wrote at the time:

Ms. Pelosi’s trip was not authorized, and Syria is one of the world’s leading sponsors of international terrorism. It has almost certainly been involved in numerous attacks that have claimed the lives of American military personnel from Beirut to Baghdad.

The U.S. is in the midst of two wars authorized by Congress. For Ms. Pelosi to flout the Constitution in these circumstances is not only shortsighted; it may well be a felony, as the Logan Act has been part of our criminal law for more than two centuries. Perhaps it is time to enforce the law.

The circumstances surrounding Carter’s visit are no less egregious, in fact, Carter’s freelance diplomacy is arguably worse. Hamas, unlike Syria, is not a country — an entity with territorial integrity, recognized by the international community as the legitimate authority of a nation-state — but a terrorist group. I’m no lawyer, but it appears that a strong case can be made that Jimmy Carter has been in constant violation of a federal statute ever since he left the White House.
