Carter Calls on EU to Label Products from 'Illegal Settlements'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 12/5/13

Posted on 05/12/2013 3:09:42 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

Former US President Jimmy Carter has once again expressed his blatantly anti-Israel allegiances by calling on the European Union to “introduce proper labeling of goods produced on illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank.”

Carter was in Dublin together with former Irish president Mary Robinson and former Brazilian president Fernando Henrique Cardoso for talks with Irish Foreign Affairs Minister Eamon Gilmore and diplomats from some 20 European countries on revitalizing the peace process in the Middle East.

“With the Middle East peace process making no significant progress, we call on Europe to play a stronger and more independent role in revitalizing peace efforts, with a fresh approach,” Carter said, according to the European Jewish Press (EJP).

“The EU has repeatedly condemned settlement expansion in the West Bank. It could therefore introduce a clear labeling of products made in Israeli settlements, which are illegal under international law,” he added.

Ireland currently holds the rotating EU presidency until end of June.

Robinson claimed the move was not “anti- Israel,” but rather “a concrete step, supported by many of our Israeli friends, to revive the hope of a future state of Palestine and safeguard the two-state solution before it is too late,” EJP reported.

The total intelligence of the Carter family went way down when Bill Carter passed.

Who would ever have thought at the time that the brother who peed on all the airport runways would end up being the talent of the Carter family.

[Why does he hate Israel so?]

Over the years I've wondered that and I believe he hates all Jews. His antisemitism is so deep-seated I think he was raised that way. His “peace center” which is a front from which to attack Israel is mostly funded by wealthy Arabs.

Even Arutz-7 has to use a euphemism for “anti-semitism.”

Proper labeling would be something like "made in Judea and Samaria, Israel", wouldn't it?

Labeling it “produced on an illegal Israeli settlement” would be a great pretext to sue for libel and contest the allegation of illegality. Lemons make lemonade, even on Israeli settlements.

Besides, God promised that the descendants of Abraham would keep on existing. If Satan could have the Jews killed, that would mean that God either (1) lied or (2) is not able to keep His promises. Either way, none of His promises could be trusted, the Bible would fall apart, and Satan would win. At least that’s what Satan thinks and he sure is trying mighty hard to eliminate all the descendants of Abraham!!

They should just routinely label him as “Anti-Semitic Former US President Jimmy Carter”, or the equivalent each time his name is mentioned.

You’ll note that they *regularly* do just the opposite, whenever Carter spews hate against Israel and/or Jews, there is *always* an apologist there to state that “this does not mean that he is anti-Semitic or anti-Jewish.”

If he wasn’t, then why every time he spews hate, somebody has to publicly deny that it is hate?

Imagine if every time Joe Biden spoke about a black person, or any issue concerning blacks, he called them the “n”-word, and then a spokesman immediately said, “This does not mean he is a racist”. Oh really?

Well folks, look at the model for Obama. Here it is 2013, and Carter is still getting it wrong with his loudest voice in public. It’s been 33 years since he left office.

Obama will leave office in January 2017. We can expect to see him doing the same thing until well after 2050.

Thanks Oprah.

LOL!! Totally agree.

When one does not praise Israel, one’s going to suffer whether it is a person or nation....God has something to say about this in His Bible.

Not sure Israel is above a little constructive critism but I darn sure I don't want to be on the side that tries to drawn swords againt it.

Not do they have God's favor, them 'Jooos' are tough!!!!!

“Why does he hate Israel so?”

He seems to have gotten it from his mother. She and his brother Billy frequently embarrassed him as President with their public anti-Semitic statements. At the time he tried to distance himself from them to preserve his image, but now that he’s out of office he shows his true colors openly.

I don’t even know where to start.

But, since there are no such thing as “illegal” settlements except in the mind of anti-semites, I guess nothing need be labeled
