Jimmy Carter's feelings are hurt

Jimmy's hurtin'.  No, he didn't fall and scrape his knee. Former US President Jimmy Carter, Nobel Peace Prize Winner for Bringing Peace to the Middle East, and all-around global messenger of sweetness and light, has been called a bigot. Or so he claims.
"I've been hurt and so has my family by some of the reaction," Carter said. "This is the first time that I've ever been called a liar and a bigot and an anti-Semite and a coward and a plagiarist. This has hurt me."
Let no one say we are insensitive to Mr. Carter's feelings. But Jimmy's pain may fade into triviality next to the hurt feelings of Israelis and Palestinians --- whose loved ones have been killed or maimed by the actions of Yasser Arafat, the terror boss for whom Mr. Carter served as secret volunteer speech writer. Or by the million or so Iraqis and Iranians who died horrifically in the war staged by Saddam Hussein against Ayatollah Khomeini, after Mr. Carter enabled Khomeini to start the first Islamofascist regime in the Middle East in 1979. Or by the thousands of Iranians who have been tortured by Khomeiniac Mullahs. Or by the millions of Israelis whose lives are being threatened every single day by the new aspiring tyrant of Tehran, the mystical fanatic Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Or by all the other tyrants and killers who have been enabled by Mr. Carter's unbelievable naivete --- or malevolence.

Take just one sentence from Mr. Carter's latest gift to the Middle East Peace Process --- the title of his book. It's called "Palestine: Peace, not Apartheid." Now "apartheid" is another word for "racial segregation," and as Mr. Carter well knows from his days in Georgia, accusing someone of being a segregationist is calling them a particularly vicious kind of racist. So Jimmy Carter calls Israel "racist" in the very title of his book, which he has trying to promote on all the TV shows that would let him on.

Now notice the utter triviality of Jimmy's complaint in response to his critics. Let's read it again:
"I've been hurt and so has my family by some of the reaction," Carter said. "This is the first time that I've ever been called a liar and a bigot and an anti-Semite and a coward and a plagiarist. This has hurt me."
Doesn't something seem to be a little out of whack? Jimmy Carter accuses Jews and Israelis of racism --- he is criticized in return --- and his biggest complaint is that his feelings are hurt?

Is that not a revelation about Jimmy Carter, the man?

Let's not call Mr. Carter "a liar and a bigot and an anti-Semite and a coward and a plagiarist." Those are strong words. There is little reasonable doubt, however, that Mr. Carter was the worst president of the last three decades. Every time Ahmadinejad threatens to wipe out Israel with his brand-new nukes, you can thank Jimmy Carter for bringing  the merciless Mullahs to power in Tehran. 

Carter also the worst ex-president, which is why he received a Nobel Prize for anti-Americanism --- oops, for Peace, of course. Though there is no peace, as Isaiah noticed some time ago. Isaiah was being critical  of naïve and immodest peace-peddlers, who simply proclaimed "Peace, peace. But there was no peace." Isaiah might have been talking about Mr. Carter himself.

Let's not elect another Jimmy Carter - ever. The world is far too dangerous to trust his kind with the most powerful office in the world.
