The Real Jimmy Carter
FrontPageMagazine.com ^ | April 27, 2007 | Alan M. Dershowitz

Posted on 04/27/2007 9:09:33 PM PDT by bnelson44

I have met cigarette lobbyists, who are supported by the cigarette industry, and who have come to believe honestly that cigarettes are merely a safe form of adult recreation, that cigarettes are not addicting and that the cigarette industry is really trying to persuade children not to smoke. These people are fooling themselves (or fooling us into believing that they are fooling themselves) just as Jimmy Carter is fooling himself (or persuading us to believe that he is fooling himself).

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.

“Recent disclosures of Carter’s extensive financial connections to Arab oil money, particularly from Saudi Arabia,...”

I’m confused as I thought it was common knowledge that Carter was accepting monies from the Saudi’s even during his misAdministration.

Not that Carter doesn't deserve it mind you.

He’s been on Carter for a while. He’s a staunch supporter of Israel.

Yep and he is a Jew hater too in my opinion. The Bible syas he is cursed for bartering away Israel's Land with its enemies.

Jimmy “I’m going to f**k the Jews” Carter, a bought and paid for agent of Arab tyrants. I can honestly say that this is shocking news that I would have never seen coming in a hundred years./sarcasm

“The Carter MisAdministration”

I like it! You, sir, have added to the language!

Four years were never more perfectly summed up. Bravo!

This is amazing considering Dershowitz at one time was a friend and supporter of Carter. I respect him for doing his homework on Carter and then having the guts to publish this.

This sentence stood out:
“ I sadly concluded that Jimmy Carter of the twenty-first century has become complicit in evil.”

Such slow witted dolts as the author,when finally stumbling over a long established and widely known reality, shout it from the roof tops, fully convinced that others are as unenlightened as they.

Strong stuff. I have not seen the Dersh on T.V. lately; maybe this is why.

Alan Dershowitz

Dershowitz is one of the few liberals who has some level of integrity, that combined with the fact that he is Jewish, probably overrides the liberal policy of covering for other liberals.

It should be common knowledge that the Clintons are on the payroll of the Chinese Communists and Indonesian Islamists. But is it?

"Dershowitz is one of the few liberals who has some level of integrity, that combined with the fact that he is Jewish, probably overrides the liberal policy of covering for other liberals."

I think that Dershowitz has been travailing for some time now concerning his loyalties.

He is a liberal intellectual who has actually argued FOR the appropriateness of torture under certain circumstances.

Not that Americans use torture as a tactic, but if we did, it ain't necessarily a totally bad idea.

As it was common knowledge that his brother Billy was on the Khaddafi payroll.

For any who doubt, Google "If I get back in" Carter.

"Liberal-seeing-the-light" articles such as this are of particular use in getting convertable leftists to leave the plantation.

I sent it around to my Jewish friends. Thanks for posting it.

Funny you quote that because I knew he was a Jew hater because of his policies against Israel and giving the Jewish homeland away to her enemies. I did not know he actually said something like that.

I guess its not just an opinion anymore Carter is a Jew hater and we have the proof.
