Jimmy Carter Apologizes To Jews !!##!?!

Admittedly,this was a jaw dropper:

Former US President Jimmy Carter on Monday asked for the Jewish community's forgiveness for any negative stigma he may have caused Israel over the years.

Carter, who is not a popular character in Israel, enraged the American Jewish community's in the past with various statements made in his book "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid."{...}

"We must recognize Israel’s achievements under difficult circumstances, even as we strive in a positive way to help Israel continue to improve its relations with its Arab populations, but we must not permit criticisms for improvement to stigmatize Israel.

"As I would have noted at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, but which is appropriate at any time of the year, I offer an Al Het for any words or deeds of mine that may have done so," he said.

"Al Het" refers to the Yom Kippur prayer asking God forgiveness for sins committed.

Head of the Anti-Defamation League Abraham Foxman welcomed Carter's apology, saying it marked the beginning of reconciliation.

Did the Saudis bounce a check on Carter? On as he gets a little closer to the Ultimate Judge, is he starting to remember what's actually in the Bible he purports to believe in?

Tell you what, Jimmah....your Jew hatred was a sin against G-d who will forgive you, but also against man, and if you claim to know something about Yom Kippur and Atonement, you know this is just the beginning. Teshuvah, repentance for a sin committed against man requires more than just a sorry.

You have to make restitution and an honest attempt to undo some of the harm you've done.

For starters, instead of quietly admitting you were wrong to the likes of the ADL. write one of those famous editorials in the New York Times or the Washington Post and announce it to the world. Admit you plagiarized large portions of "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid", that it had huge and almost defamatory factual errors that you stubbornly refused to admit, even when long time associates of the Carter Peace Center resigned in disgust. Be honest and have the humility to admit that Apartheid and Israel don't belong in the same sentence, let alone as the thesis of an entire book.

Hit the talk shows and confess.

Talk honestly about your many dealings with Hamas, and how you met in Damascus with your buddy Khalid Mashaal, head of the Hamas politburo for the express purpose of advising Mashaal on how high a ransom to ask for the release of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. Admit that you were shamefully inhumane not to insist that Hamas allow the Red Cross to visit Shalit.

Admit how you covered for Yasir Arafat, even though you knew he murdered Americans and had two of our diplomats kidnapped and tortured to death.

Go to Israel and apologize personally to the people of Israel for demonizing them the whole world over.

That's what repentance looks like, according to G-d's own standards, Mr. Carter. And you know as well as I do that nothing is going to change for you spiritually until it happens.

Jesus said about someone very like you that they were neither hot nor cold, so he would spew them out of his mouth and reject them. Right now, according to that standard, you're barely luke warm.

Do the right thing, for your own sake if nothing else.

-selah -

UPDATE: Ahhh...we now have a a reason for the 'apology', thanks to Elder of Ziyon (via Soccer Dad. Apparently Cwayzie Unkie Jimmie's putrid grandson Jason is planning a run forthe Georgia State Senate after the local Democrat's ambassadorship appointment to Singapore comes through from Obama, and Jason is going to need some Jewish votes to win.

Jimmy Carter is a sordid piece of Jew-hating garbage...and Abe Foxman and the ADL, the Jewish equivalent of the NAACP aren't much better for providing cover for him. Wonder if a donation changed hands?

I had no idea about some of this stuff.

Forget the Jews. I think Carter needs to apologize to his fellow Americans.

I don't think I could restrain myself from bad language were I to attempt to comment at length upon that contemptible, despicable, vile, grinning ex-president. --dragon/dinosaur

This is going to leave a mark - and rightly so.

Jimmy Carter is a national disgrace.

I thought hell had froze over when I saw that headline. Looks like Carter is an opportunist. He thinks he can turn off his Jew hatred as he pleases. He has no idea how many people have suffered, died, lost love ones because of palestinian terrorism. How they need the world to be with them, not against them. How real palestinian violence is. Support for Israel isn't a political position you can pick up just to grab some Jewish votes. Support for Israel is something that speaks of what kind of person you are. That you value freedom over terror, success and innovation over suicide bombs, and life over death. Jimmy Carter is not one of those people.

Even more contemptible than Carter, from whom we expect hypocrisy & lies, is Abe Foxman, that Obama-shill & Democratic Party tuchas-kisser.

Carter has always been an opportunist, from the time he ran for governor of Georgia until now. This is so transparant that if my fellow Jews fall for this BS, I'll despair. he has no idea what forgiveness entails and has no intention of "apologizing". This is a blantant attempt at appeasement - perhaps the one thing this low life scumbag excels at.
