Why does the worse president of the United States in recent history, Jimmy Carter, hate the United States so?
The founder and director of Minnesota-based Olive Tree Ministries says she’s upset about recent comments about the Middle East made by former President Jimmy Carter while on foreign soil. Listen to the report.
And what could be the possible motivation of a former president to support terrorism?
The former president told a human rights conference in Dublin, Ireland, that the Bush administration’s refusal to accept Hamas’ 2006 election victory was “criminal.” Carter also said Israel and much of the West sought to subvert the election by shunning the terrorist organization.
Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, is blunt in her reaction. “It would seem that Jimmy Carter has appointed himself, in this case, as the roving ambassador for Hamas,” she states.
And Markell says one cannot help but wonder where Carter’s loyalties lie and if he is, indeed, anti-Semitic. “If you just look at the black-and-white facts of what Carter says and what Carter writes,” she observes, “it’s very hard not to come away with a pretty clear, objective opinion that Jimmy Carter is anti-Semitic.”
Even Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has harshly criticized Hamas for taking over Gaza, saying its members were “murderous terrorists” who recently tried to assassinate him.
GREAT post by a friend of mine at Townhall, Boaz.
There has got to be a limit on stupidity for Ex – Presidents doesn’t there? Can Jimmy Al Qarter be any more ignorant than the average sack of spuds and still know when to suck air? Is it true that his hair isn’t white, but he is a natural blonde?
To suggest that the US, Israel and the EU are fomenting division between Hamas and Fatah (who hate each other by the way ) is realtively stupid. To suggest funding Hamas equally with Fatah is ludicrous, Hamas has sworn to fight jihad against Israel until Israel is gone.
Well stated. Visit Boaz and read the rest.
First, go here for a presentation. Every American interested in knowing the truth and that which the cronies in DC cannot afford to have you know is in the presentation. Turn the sound UP.
After the above presentation, go here for another presentation. Turn the sound UP.
How many members of the various “Protestant” beliefs march around with signs advocating the beheading or any other means of inflicting death of those that insult other religious leaders? Insert any other belief structure into “Protestant” and ask the same question.
After conferring with students from several universities who were concerned about both the ignorance about the objectives of Islamic fascism among their fellow students and also the “unholy alliance” between campus leftists and jihadists seeking to undermine the War on Terror, the Freedom Center has launched a Terrorism Awareness Project. This Project will provide conservative students with an intellectual toolkit containing all the elements of the truth about jihad: a speakers’ bureau featuring figures such as Steve Emerson, Daniel Pipes and Robert Spencer; DVDs of films such as “Obsession” that dramatically underline the threat we face; printed material about the Islamists’ objectives and the successes they have had in penetrating Western culture and its institutions. The Terrorism Awareness Project will work in cooperation with Students for Academic Freedom, which now has chapters on over 150 college campuses, to help conservative student activists to demand equal time-in the classroom as well as at campus-wide events-whenever the left presents its propaganda about the war and the intentions of those who regard America as “the Great Satan.”
The left has already begun the transformation of many K-12 classrooms into indoctrination projects for its agendas. Concerted campaigns have been launched by the left at high schools geared to converting students into activists against the war and discouraging them from volunteering to serve. Radical pedagogy exemplified by the “Teaching for Social Justice” regimen has entered teacher training texts and teacher training graduate courses.
In response to this juggernaut, the Freedom Center has launched a Students and Parents for Academic Freedom in the K-12 schools, modeled on our current campaign on college campuses and with the same agenda: take politics out of the classroom. The Center has drafted an academic bill of rights for K-12 schools and created a new website-www.psaf.org. The Center has commissioned a book by education writer Sol Stern exposing the radical roots of the “Teaching for Social Justice” phenomenon (its leading intellectual influence is former Weatherman terrorist and current University of Chicago education professor Billy Ayres) and the extent to which it has penetrated teachers’ colleges and textbooks. Stern’s study will be published by Encounter Books in 2007.
IT’S EITHER AN UNPRECEDENTED LOW IN PARTISAN DISCOURSE OR POLITICAL SURREALISM worthy of André Breton: on Tuesday, former president Jimmy Carter, speaking on foreign soil, denounced the policies of his successor as “criminal” because they fail to subsidize a genocidal Islamic terrorist organization that has killed Americans. Then, he blamed internecine Palestinian warfare on Americans and Israelis.
Speaking in Ireland at the eighth annual Forum on Human Rights – without an apparent hint of irony – Carter said the Bush administration had sinned against heaven and earth in its decision to withhold direct aid to Hamas once that group came to power in the Palestinian Authority. “That action was criminal,” he said. The Palestinian people had elected Hamas fair-and-square in elections his Center described as “orderly and fair.” (Carter said the same of Hugo Chavez’s election.) He deemed Hamas “shrewd in selecting candidates.”
Read the articles…they are “Rather” lengthy.
I’ve got your number, loser.
The singularly worse president in the United States’ history is whining because the US is standing against Hamas and standing with Fatah.
Jimmy Carter is an idiot in that regard and so is the US in the other regard.
Terrorists are terrorists are terrorists. I don’t care which color you paint the turd. It is still a turd; just a prettier turd. A turd is a turd is a turd. Terrorists and turds go hand in hand.
June 20, 2007 — DUBLIN, Ireland – Former President Jimmy Carter said yesterday Washington’s support for the Fatah group and the blocking of aid to Gaza were part of a mistaken policy aimed at dividing Palestinians.
Carter, on a visit to Dublin, said the United States and Israel had done “everything they could to prevent accommodation between Hamas and Fatah.”
“This effort to divide Palestine into two peoples . . . is a step in the wrong direction.”
Hell! I remember when Jimmy Doll shiite on the people of Iran and was all pleased with himself when he orchestrated the take over of Iran by “those nice religious people”. What a moron. Stay in Dublin and shove the Blarney Stone up your hinder hole, Jimmy.
June 20, 2007 — WHO sets Hamas strategy? As the radical Palestinian movement braces itself for what could be a long struggle against its rival Fatah, if not a full-blown civil war, the question merits more than mere academic interest.
Just days after Hamas staged its coup to achieve exclusive control of Gaza, it’s now clear that the military operation launched against the positions of the Palestinian security forces in the strip was never discussed in the Islamist organization’s Consultative Assembly (shura).
UPDATE!! Pretty good article here…I decided to place it here instead of a new thread.
Has Jimmy Carter gone off the deep end? He’s now scolding the West for refusing to bankroll Hamas terrorists who’ve just seized power at gunpoint in Gaza. It’s a new low in coddling terrorism.
As the Gaza Strip flamed into Hamas gang warfare and the West Bank slid into another civil war, Carter — cozy in distant Ireland accepting another “human rights” award — found cause Tuesday to blame America first for all the violence.
Amid wine, cheese and good feeling, America’s worst ex-president drew a bead on the West. The refusal by the U.S., Israel and the EU to support Hamas, an armed terror group that just launched a coup d’etat and civil war in full view of the world, was nothing but a “criminal” act at the root of the trouble there, Carter asserted.
“The United States and Israel decided to punish all the people in Palestine and did everything they could to deter a compromise between Hamas and Fatah,” he said.
The statement was so malevolent and illogical as to border on insane. Carter wasn’t honest enough to say he was rooting for terrorists who started a terrifying new war in the region and trashed what little democratic rule the Palestinians had. Instead, he tut-tutted the West for being insufficiently sensitive to the fact that Hamas thugs were democratically elected in 2006 in an “orderly and fair” vote.
When one party has started a civil war, democracy isn’t exactly the issue anymore. Just being elected does not justify making warfare on your fellow citizens. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice repeatedly points out that those who are elected democratically have an obligation to govern democratically or they aren’t democrats. Hamas has blown its right to democracy.
Carter also misstated and distorted technical aspects of democratic rule in the Palestinian Authority itself, further calling into question his intentions. Hamas’ 42% plurality in the last parliamentary election gave the terror group a right to participate in government, but not absolute power.
Carter neglected to notice that President Mahmoud Abbas, Palestine’s head of state, not only had a full democratic right to appoint Hamas members to his Cabinet, but he also had the right to dismiss them as he did Thursday. Carter’s selective respect for the power-sharing aspect of Palestine’s democracy stands out as significantly skewed toward Hamas.
Crazier still, Carter insisted Hamas was entitled to American aid because Fatah had been getting it. But he left out some details: Hamas is a terrorist organization that had broken six previous cease-fires, and its campaign platform vowed to destroy Israel. Hamas would gladly take Western cash to make good on that campaign promise to voters.
No one in the West is obligated to support an international terrorist organization just because it “won” an election. The proper response is to cut it off until it renounces violence.
For refusing to fund Hamas but propping up the slightly less unworthy Fatah, Carter charged the U.S. with trying to “divide the Palestinians into two peoples.”
With such words, Carter can hardly be called a peacemaker. In fact, he should have been profoundly ashamed at his acceptance of his Nobel Prize. Ironically, his partner in peace, Yasser Arafat, got his stolen and desecrated by the very Hamas Carter defends. That ought to give him pause as he defends terrorists as democrats.
Carter is a moron.
