Jimmy Carter Offers Jews An ĎAl Chetí& Asks For Forgiveness
The Yeshiva World ^ | December 21, 2009 | Dov Gordon

Posted on 12/21/2009 8:24:28 PM PST by lbryce

Former US President Jimmy Carter is asking for forgiveness of the Jewish community for forgiveness for any stigma he may have caused Israel.

“…..I have the hope and a prayer that the State of Israel will flourish as a Jewish state within secure and recognized borders in peaceful co-existence with its neighbors and with all the Moslem States, and that this peaceful co-existence will bring security, prosperity and happiness to the people of Israel and to the people of the Middle East of all faiths.

“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.”

No, Al Chet is not the name of some left-wing operative :-). "Al Chet" are the Hebrew words for "I have sinned".
Hey Jimmy, boy. This letter won't cut it. Something along the lines of an emotionally wrenching "I have sinned" mea culpa, with tears and all, the way Jimmy Swaggert did it, is a good place to start.

So Carter is now acknowledging that he’s been a bigot all these years?

He’s an idiot that cause great harm to Israel and to world security.

No. Sorry. Not even then — Swaggart lied too.

WHy is Carter saying this now? Or, is he? What kind of angle has he got? What’s he after?

Any self-respecting Israeli (any Jew, for that matter) ought to see through this man by now. DON’T trust him. Forgive him, perhaps. But trust? NO.

Yeah Carter, you’ve made it a practice to make stupid comments regarding Israel for decades. Now you think one measly little note should suffice.

Go to hell. The sooner, the better.

Sincerely,

Israel and all her friends.

“WHy is Carter saying this now?”

I of course do NOT know the answer, but after the successful missile test in Iran, perhaps he’s trying to assuage his own guilt by making amends to the Jewish people before the nutcases in Iran launch on Israel.

But then too Jimmuh Cahtah is old enough to be dead, so maybe he’s trying to clear things up before his demise...who knows.

It does seem odd, unless he’s sewing up loose ends. Perhaps he’s dying. Other than being paid to say this, by some Jewish interests in a puff speech, there doesn’t seem to be a good reason for such an odd “apology” at this late date. My guess is that he just got some bad news from his doctor.

Seeing how he blew his nose on Gen. 12:3, he’s going to need more than a note of forgiveness from the Israelis.

I can guarantee you one thing. I won’t be watching and/or videotaping his funeral like I did Reagan’s.

Maybe I’ll surf into it just to see the hate filled scowl on Rosilen’s mug like she had at Reagan’s funeral.

Translation:

Rich Saudis no longer see the USA as a “necessary party” to peace. I pleaded with them, they ignored me, and Howard Baker too! So they are sending me very little money. Howard Baker too!

So please, I apologize, and start sending money to my charities again.

Maybe he’s dying. Maybe he’s finally seen the enemies of israel for what they are, the red headed stepchild mass murdering scum propagandists than want to kill every Jew in the world, then the Christians. Or maybe he’s just passing the baton to Obama. His work is done.

Tom Marr has told the story on Baltimore radio more than once about how then-Governor Carter of Georgia opposed then-Governor of Maryland Marvin Mandel’s bid to become head of the Democrat Governor’s Association because he was a “jew bastard”.

Marr claims to have heard it from someone who was in the room when Carter said it.

I agree with this. He’s finally seeing the light - the white one. Not my call, but it seems to me that it’s too late.

I think he did more damage as an ex-President than he did as President, which in his case, is a fairly amazing feat.

Jimmy Carter is liek a REVERSE Mel Gibson- Jimmah denigrates the jews when He’s sober, and apologizes to htem when He’s drunk- obviously he was drunk when he said these things- when he sobers up again, he’ll be back to his usual antisemitism

How dare Jimmy Carter! The gall! The audacity! He needs to just shut his mouth. He is a large part of the reason the world is in such a bad place. And a lot of so called “Rightists” always give Reagen a break even though he never cleaned up Farter’s mess, and never made the Iranians pay for their despicable act. Nevertheless, I digress... BUT Obama learned from Farter how to be a charlatan. After all, Farter is the biggest of them all. He claims Apartheid against the Jews, and tries to wipe them from the earth. Obama’s tough talk on the Jewish state has caused anti-Semitism to proliferate at an astounding and truly scary rate in Europe. Yet, who is the Republican that can be trusted? Who has values anymore? Bush caved, and the only R I can think of who could be trusted is Palin and she has her own problems. God have mercy on our FREE civilization (currently free, we will see what Obummer does to change that though).

Two-faced Jimmy Cater sold his very soul to become President. He began the leftist totalitarianism -- Obama's insiders continue today. Carter has always despised the conservative Likud, as with all conservatives and this latest stunt, is just that, another deceptive stunt which must not be believed.
