Carter: "Too Many Jews"
Federal Review ^ | Monday, January 29, 2007

Posted on 01/30/2007 6:11:57 AM PST by Behind Liberal Lines

HEMPSTEAD, NY--Another story has surfaced calling into question whether or not former President Jimmy Carter is an anti-semite. The New York Sun has reported that the former Executive Director of the Holocaust Memorial Council once received a note from Carter complaining that there were "too many Jews" on the Holocaust Memorial Council:

(Former Director Monroe) Freedman also said that Carter's support for the Holocaust Memorial Council was "principally a political gimmick" based on getting political support from Jews.

Freedman, now a law professor at Hofstra University, also confirmed that a respected Holocaust scholar was rejected as a board member by Carter's office because the scholar's name "sounded too Jewish"

Lest anyone think that this is politically motivated, running Freedman through the donor lookup at OpenSecrets.org shows a liberal bent. Freedman's only listed donations were to democrats, including a $2000.00 donation during the 2004 election to John Kerry.

This latest revelation against Carter follows similar reports that have dogged the former president since the publication of his controversial book "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid," which a number of critics, and even former employees, have attacked as being riddled with "Errors ... Superficialities [and] Invented [facts]."

In response to the criticism, Carter has defended his work and blamed much of the controversy on "Jewish organizations" in the media and college campuses with "high Jewish enrollments" trying to silence him.

I don't know whether to scream aloud or just pity the man, James E. Carter.

Can something this stupid be true? I thought he was this great intellectual icon. Dang. I'm surprised there is anybody but Jews on the Holocaust Memorial Council and I think that is the way it should be.

Ironically, Carter is, perhaps, the only 80-something southern baptist on earth that the mainstream media wouldn't just assume was an anti-semite.

Ah, more evidence about him being nothing more then a leftist Jew hater who gets donations from Arabs. How this man ever could be president is a question that will forever haunt the US.

Yep. Too often many post comments to the effect of saying he's incompetent or senile when in fact he's neither; he's just plainly succumbed to evil, and it happened long ago.

We have several new representatives in Congress who are Jewish.

Has any Jewish Senator or Representative come forth with a denunciation of Jimmy Carter and his book? Has Lieberman, even?

I don't pity him. I don't know how anyone can be on the wrong side of every issue so consistently. I pity his wife though. I think she's a good egg and loyal to him but I think she's cringing inside.
