Ex-president and Jew hater for sale - Jimmy Carter's dirty little secret

Ahh, the good old days...back when senility was just setting in....

There's been a certain - aroma - around ex-president Jimmy Carter for quite some time now. Lately, the smell has gotten so sickening that even long time admirers of his like the Leftist columnist Michael Kinsley have urged him to clean up his act.

Carter has been a long time anti-Semite and Israel basher, as well as a proponent of Yasir Arafat and what he dubs `the Palestinian Cause'. He's been justifying this obvious bias for years by claiming that his only motive is `peace'.

Lately, Carter has been making the round touting his latest book,` Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid'. It is full of lies, distortions, outright falsehood, and if Carter Center fellow and longtime adviser Kenneth Stein (who resigned over what he called `fabrications, designed to provoke' in the book ) is to be believed, plagiarism.

Carter has refused to defend the book on its merits or factual content, and has merely stated to all queries that he `stands by the book.'

Instead, he's tried to shift the focus away from any criticism and focus on his critics.

Carter's been loud in complaining that critic of his book are `compromised' by their ties to AIPAC, the so-called `Jewish lobby' and, in a new low even for him, simply because they're Jews. In making the rounds of interview about his book, Carter never misses an opportunity to mention what he likes to call the "powerful influence of AIPAC," or “representatives of Jewish organizations” in the media as the prime culprits behind criticism of his latest screed and, believe it or not "university campuses with high Jewish enrollment" as an excuse to avoid debating people like Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz.

So, according to Carter, criticism of him and his book by people with a Jewish or pro-Israel taint is dishonest and caused by hidden, dishonest motives which makes their position suspect.

Well and good. But let's examine Jimmy Carter's motivations, shall we? For a start, let's follow the money trail to see where President Carter is coming from.

For instance, the the Carter Center, which Carter founded at Emory University in 1982, has been the recipient of Arab mega-bucks for years. And still is.

Carter is a major recipient of aid from the Saudis, for instance. Before his death in 2005, King Fahd was a longtime contributor to the Carter Center and gave Carter several million-dollar donations. In 1993 alone, King Fahd presented Carter with a gift of $7.6 million. And the king was definitely not alone in his largesse. As of 2005, the king’s high-living nephew, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, has donated at least $5 million to the Carter Center...that we know about.

The Saudi Fund for Development, the kingdom’s leading loan organization and one of the sources of money for all those hardline mosques and madrassahs shows up repeatedly on the Carter center’s list of supporters. Carter has also taken money from the Bin Laden family - in 2000 he secured a pledge from the bin-Laden family for a $1 million contribution to his center.

Another big source of funds for Carter has been the United Arab Emirates. In 2001, Carter went to Dubai - a country where Jews are not permitted by law, incidentally - to accept the Zayed International Prize for the Environment, named for Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahyan, the late UAE sheik and founder of the government funded Zayed Center, the source of some of the most virulently anti-American and anti-Semitic propaganda in the world. Among other things, the Zayed Center took a book written by a French author claiming that 9/11 was an inside job by the CIA and the Mossad, translated into Arabic and distributed it throughout the entire Middle East. And the Zayed Center is a prime benefactor and host to Holocaust deniers of all persuasions.

Carter got a $500,000 prize from these people, and when he spoke at the awards ceremony,he gushed that the "award has special significance for me because it is named for my personal friend, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan al-Nahyan."

Birds of a feather, eh, Mr. Carter?

President Carter still receives a yearly stipend from the Zayed Center. Jew hatred and Israel bashing pays pretty well.

Even funnier, Carter has called the UAE as an "almost completely open and free society" - this in a country where the `government' - the ruling Sheik - picks a select group of citizens to `vote', exercises strict press censorship, bars Jews from the country and follows the diktats of sharia law.

And he calls Israel a `racist apartheid state'?

Jimmy Carter, frankly, has become a bought and paid for shill for the Arabs to parrot their racist, anti-Israel agenda. He has forfeited any right to be taken seriously, and in reality ought to be forced to register as a foreign lobbyist.

He was an utter failure and disgrace as a president and has metamorphosed into a sour, bitter senile old bigot redolent of intellectual flatulence who deserves the disdain of any person with even a semblance of decency or patriotism.

Wow! Totally gnarley! Thank you again FF for educating me. Not that I was a Catah fan but, I didn't know quite how nasty he was. He belongs in the East River!

Thank you, Rosey (BTW, Chag Sameach)

As for the East River, I understand that NYC has improved the pollution a great deal.

Why reverse the process by throwing in Jimmy Carter?

What a truly loathsome man. As you say, he was a failure as President. He seems to be intent on making his current role as “statesman” even more so. You know he has crossed the line when a fellow from his own Carter Center throws up his hands a quits. His claim to be “neutral” and simply working for peace is simply laughable. He revealed his despicable agenda long ago. Sad that so many still look up to him.

He is a bad bad man. Is there anything "we" can do?
Can we take his land?

Hysterical jew insists that Carter is bought. Of course, when Carter points out who bought Congress - "he's an anti-semite!" Having everything both ways is pretty much the essence of judaism.

A hysterical Jew hater ignores any semblance of facts and history to justify his paranoia and prejudice, while still claiming to be a rational human being.

Of course, having everything both ways is characteristic of anti-Semites.

If you consider that the Carter Center has an annual operating budget of 140 million dollars (including medical supplies), those aforementioned donations are quite measly and make up only a mere fraction and are not even annual. Not to mention these donors are few among many.

I am not arguing that Carter's book does not contain errors, as I am not a Middle East scholar. However, I bet my life that anyone with enough courage and stature to stand up and call the Israeli occupation of Palestine another apartheid would be considered anti-semitic. Unfortunately our "free country" that prides itself on bringing freedom and democracy to the rest of the world does not believe in true freedom, does not believe in being critical or analytical about our or others foreign policy. God forbid, that would be so unAmerican. God forbid we should critique Israel for its treatment of Palestinians. If I--a white woman--critique my African-American husband for his treatment of someone or something, does that make me racist? No, it makes me aware and critical, caring even.

Dear Whatever,
Respectfully, I find your logic faulty on a number of levels.

Here's why:

For one thing, the `donations' mentioned are cash and not kind, and represent income to Carter and his foundation. And they are ongoing and substantial,neither `measly' or one-time.

Not only that, but they come from genocidal and racist sources, from countries that ban Jews from their countries as a matter of law as well as funding some of the most virulent anti-American and anti-Semitic PROPAGANDA in the world.

Does Jimmy Carter get a pass on accepting money from these people? Would you still be as accepting if it came from, say, the Aryan Brotherhood? I don't think so.

Secondly, I take exception to your remarks about Carter's `courage' in demonizing Israel. His book not only contains errors but outright fabrications. And this propaganda - for that's what it is - is, as I said, simply bought and paid for.

Lastly, I find it interesting that you concede that you know little about the Middle East, yet make remarks about Israel's supposed `treatment' of the Palestinians and consider it an `apartheid' occupation.

It's a funny thing when
Israel, the most democratic and racially diverse nation in the region, which has Arab citizens with full rights under the law who operate as judges, lawmakers, businessmen, teachers, and even in the military is considered `apartheid' by nations that refuse to allow a single Jew to live in their countries.

I suggest you do a little reading, starting with the site and, if you have the courage, with Joan Power's prize winning book, `From Time Immemorial' ( still available on Amazon) to get some background on one of the longest and most successful scams in history - that of the so-called `Palestinian' refugees. And no, she's neither a Jew or a `Zionist' but a Pulitzer winning reporter.

Great response regarding Israel's supposed apartheid. Another phrase that these idiots use is Genocide when a handful of terrorists are killed while launching missiles against Israel.

BTW, I linked to your article from Ground Zero Mosque the Memorial to Mohammed Atta
