Jimmy Carter, the Jew-hater who cried racist

America's worst ex-president Jimmy Carter made a ridiculous charge on Tuesday that Joe Wilson's outburst was "based on racism" and, more broadly, that "an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man."

It's ironic that a man who has such hate in his heart would call other people racists. You see the former president hates Jews. I try not to use the term Anti-Semite often. But I know of no other term (except maybe buffoon) to describe the peanut president.

Take for example, a look at Carter's book, "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy" Referring to U.S. policy and the "condoning" of Israel's actions, Carter says: "There are constant and vehement political and media debates in Israel concerning its policies in the West Bank but because of powerful political, economic, and religious forces in the U.S., Israeli government decisions are rarely questioned or condemned, voices from Jerusalem dominate our media, and most American citizens are unaware of circumstances in the occupied territories."  In English, Carter used that ugly old Anti-Semitic stereotype that the Jews control the media, Congress, and the U.S. Foreign policy.

Ambassador Marc Ginsburg was Jimmy Carter's deputy senior adviser on the Middle East, and from 1977 through 1980 was White House liaison to the State Department. He has a unique perspective of Jimmy Carter's Middle East dealings.
According to the Ambassador, the reason that the Peanut President goes out of his way to bash Israel is that he feels American Jews did not kiss his butt enough for all that he did for Israel.

"...When former President Jimmy Carter revealed that Israel has more than 150 nuclear weapons, he clearly had a motive, according to his administration's deputy senior adviser, Marc Ginsberg: "I think there's no doubt - particularly given the vantage point I had in the White House at the end of his administration - that he resents the way in which Israel and the American-Jewish community have failed to express sufficient gratitude for his efforts on behalf of peace in the Middle East.

Ginsberg, a former ambassador to Morocco and now senior global affairs analyst for Fox News, says that Carter knows what he said is something never discussed by America or Israel and that disclosing Israel's nuclear arsenal is due to his growing antagonism towards the Jewish state.

There's no doubt he knows exactly what he is doing when he's making these statements, or making misrepresentations that Hamas has agreed to recognize Israel if certain conditions occur, or to the book he wrote [‘Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid'] referring to Israel."

Liberal Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz agrees that Carter is a Jew Hater:

The entire premise of his criticism of Jewish influence on American foreign policy is that money talks. It is Carter, not me, who has made the point that if politicians receive money from Jewish sources, then they are not free to decide issues regarding the Middle East for themselves. It is Carter, not me, who has argued that distinguished reporters cannot honestly report on the Middle East because they are being paid by Jewish money. So, by Carter's own standards, it would be almost economically "suicidal" for Carter "to espouse a balanced position between Israel and Palestine."

....If money determines political and public views as Carter insists "Jewish money" does, Carter's views on the Middle East must be deemed to have been influenced by the vast sums of Arab money he has received. If he who pays the piper calls the tune, then Carter's off-key tunes have been called by his Saudi Arabian paymasters. It pains me to say this, but I now believe that there is no person in American public life today who has a lower ratio of real to apparent integrity than Jimmy Carter. The public perception of his integrity is extraordinarily high. His real integrity, it now turns out, is extraordinarily low. He is no better than so many former American politicians who, after leaving public life, sell themselves to the highest bidder and become lobbyists for despicable causes. That is now Jimmy Carter's sad legacy.

Probably the most blatant example is when Carter rejected someone for a position on the board of the Holocaust Memorial Council because the guy's name was too Jewish:

"Former President Jimmy Carter once complained there were "too many Jews" on the government's Holocaust Memorial Council, Monroe Freedman, the council's former executive director, told WND in an exclusive interview.

Freedman, who served on the council during Carter's term as president, also revealed a noted Holocaust scholar who was a Presbyterian Christian was rejected from the council's board by Carter's office because the scholar's name "sounded too Jewish."

Freedman says he was tasked with creating a board for the council and with making recommendations to the White House on how best to memorialize the Holocaust.

He told WND he sent a memo to Carter's office containing recommendations for council board members.

He said his memo was returned with a note on the upper right hand corner that stated, "Too many Jews."  The note, Freedman said, was written in Carter's handwriting and was initialed by Carter."

How do you have too many Jews working on a Committee to set up a Holocaust Memorial?  Would the Peanut President also criticize a committee for setting up a museum about the horrors of slavery, because it had too many African Americans?

Jimmy Carter's comment's the other day were just plain stupid.  But in his defense, it is very hard for a man whose heart is filled with so much hatred to have an understanding of what hatred really is. Carter's wife Rosalyn should keep him at home before he looks even more foolish.
