JIMMY FOR TERROR [An Overlooked Quote from Carter's New Book]
New York Post ^ | January 15, 2007 | The Editors

Posted on 01/15/2007 11:21:21 AM PST by aculeus

January 15, 2007 -- Has a former president of the United States - a Nobel Peace Prize winner, no less - given his blessing to wanton murder and terrorist assaults against Israel?

Sure looks that way.

How else to read that astonishing statement on page 213 of Jimmy Carter's new anti-Israel screed, "Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid"?

To wit: "It is imperative that the general Arab community and all significant Palestinian groups make it clear that they will end the suicide bombings and other acts of terrorism when international laws and the ultimate goals of the Roadmap for Peace are accepted by Israel." (Emphasis added.)

You don't have to read between the lines here.

Carter isn't calling on the Palestinians to give up terror and murder now as a way to convince Israel they are serious about peace. Rather, he says they can wait until they've achieved their goals at the bargaining table. No need, says Carter, to give up terrorism until then.

Dhimmi Carter is perfectly clear in his advocacy of terror.

Carter is an alien in a host body. I would be happy if he just up and left America for good.

What a putz.

No surprise. Carter's a flake, always has been. Nothing new there. I read somewhere last week about 14 of his staff have resigned over the past several weeks in protest of his "brilliant" book. ;)

Bought and paid for, Jimmuh is, since the 1976 Saudi bail out of his infamous peanut farm (I remember shortly after Carter was elected, the airlines switched from giving little bags of almonds to bags of peanuts).

Overlooked by whom? This particular passage has been getting a lot of press.

It is a window into Jimmah's black soul.

Some of Jimmy Carter's former staff, who resigned over his book, have cited gross inaccuracies in the book. One also charged that Carter pilfered material from other writers and altered maps. It may be no coincidence that Carter and Michael Moore shared a box seat at the 2004 Democrat Convention.

Odd how the editors of the New York Post consider this a revelation.

If there's a thread devoted to this particular sentence in Carter's book I can't find it.

Be a sport and provide the link. Thanks.

Carter is no more intelligent today than he was when he was president. He's still nothing more than a goofy peanut picker.

My apologies to all good Peanut Pickers, it was not meant to slam you. Just him.

It is an action such as that one that will shine the light on his political extremism and acceptance, if not advocacy, of Islamic terrorism.

I rearranged his book at the local Waldenbooks this weekend. All the conservative books were on the bottom of the shelf. I took them and put them on the top and did the same for the Bush hating books (I put them on bottom). I also spoke loud and advised the whole store. Needless to say my poor mother was embarrassed.

This may be old news.. but here's the link.

I just wasted time reading twice the article you linked. In it there is no reference to the sentence which is the subject of the Post editorial.

What is news to me ... and I do pay attention ... is that Carter is unequivocally saying that terror is okay as long as it stops once the terrorists get what they want.

The professionals at the Post consider that sentence news ... not the book itself, not Jimmy Carter's well known antipathy to Israel but that particular sentence.

[quote]"It is imperative that the general Arab community and all significant Palestinian groups make it clear that they will end the suicide bombings and other acts of terrorism when international laws and the ultimate goals of the Roadmap for Peace are accepted by Israel."[/quote]

Sadly, what most of the general Arab community and the largest Palestinian Arab political groups have made clear by unambiguous words and deeds is that they will not consent to peace until Israel is no more and all Jews have been eliminated from Palestine, Mr. Carter's opinions notwithstanding.

Carter wants a new, armed Islamic extremist state bordering on Israel and Egypt? This says much about his strategic vision or lack of such. He's more likely to see such a state bordering Rome or Athens first.

Remember, this is the guy, who ultimately got Sadat killed by his own people. Carter could give a crap about anybody considering his background of past history.

Past history:

444 days no activity while Tehran Hostage crisis was in place.

Carter had the ability to shut down the Iranians in late 1980, but did NOTHING - typical liberal.

Also what Carter is saying is that even though Isreal beats the pants off of this scumbags in the WOT that they need to accept the roadmap for peace.

I've always been of the opinion that committed leftists secrectly celebrate busloads of Jews being killed, this passage is Carter's book does not surprise me at all, it's just the closest someone has come to admitting it.

The nihilistic left also secretly likes seeing American soldiers killed in Iraq as in Vietnam, not because they "care" or "support" the troops, just because it supports their radical worldview.

There's really no debating it because they will never admit it and get hostile and self-righteous if you even suggest they're rooting for the bad guys. Whether they're rooting for the enemy or not, the end result of their propaganda, etc., IS support of the enemy and their positions and direct opposition to U.S. policy and any aggressive defense of U.S. interests.

Then you get back into the circular minatuea of how we're going to fight the war on terror. As far as I can tell, the left wing "strategy" is some kind of effete' foreign policy, rife with talking and paper and agreements which terrorists have NEVER abided by and use a time gaining measure to re-group, gather and re-arm and plan the next attack.

He is my favorite as well. He has the ability to get right to the heart of whatever the subject is, and illustrate it brilliantly. The L.A. Times was stupid to fire him but I guess it probably had something to do with "conflicting" views.

There was a time when I thought Jimmuh was a good man, even though he would be (and was) a lousy President.

Those times are long gone.

Jimmy makes me ashamed to be a Southerner, an American, a Baptist, and even a human being.

Worst President ever (except maybe for FER & LBJ)

Jimmah's thought process: The ends justify the means. Keep the terrorism intact until you get your concessions then I can take the renowned credit and retain relevance as global peacemaker.
