Skip to comments.Jimmy Carter refuses to cancel speech for Hamas front
Posted on 09/01/2014 11:40:50 AM PDT by Olog-hai
In what its calling a major get, the terror-tied Islamic Society of North America has booked Carter as the featured speaker at its national convention in Detroit tomorrow.
It marks the first time that ISNA, which claims to be a moderate umbrella organization for American Muslim groups, has hosted a U.S. president. Carter has also agreed to participate in a breakout discussion session at the event.
In 2007, the Justice Department implicated ISNA in a plot to funnel more than $12 million to Hamas terrorists. According to an unsealed court document, Justice labeled ISNA an unindicted co-conspirator in the successful trial of the Holy Land Foundation, which acted as Hamas fundraising arm in America. Much of Holy Lands leadership is now behind bars.

I am really offended that my tax money goes to support and protect this old traitor and fool.
No one should be surprised.
Sounds like the appropriate venue for his beliefs. Maybe the can elect him president.
No surprise at all. Just yesterday or the day before, Ol’ Jimmuh was saying that the way to peace in the ME is through the “teachings of Allah,” whatever the heck that’s supposed to mean.
The guy is a fool, but he’s a dangerous fool.
That dude is the reason we are in this mess today. Iran actually use to be an ally of the US before that slimebag took office. The US guaranteed the Shah they would protect him but Carter just sat on his butt when the radicals revolted and took over. The Democrat party needs to be abolished because it is a treason party in every sense of the word, nothing they do benefits the US or the civilized world, as my brother says the Democrat party is a terrorist organization and I couldn’t agree more. What terror group has done more damage than them?
Name one democrat who doesn’t support terrorism.
Jimmy claims to be a born again Christian, yet says the key to middle east peace is through the teachings of Allah??? What the heck?
This shriveled up old hag is a disgrace to this country.
Maybe Joe Lieberman? Although Joe became a political independent in his last election after he was beaten in the primary election by a liberal blogger Daily Kos type.
“but Carter just sat on his butt when the radicals revolted and took over. “
The CIA was paying the Ayatollah several million dollars a year to stay in France. They knew that if he was allowed to return to Iran the Shah was toast. Carter said, “Why, it’s immoral to pay somebody not to do evil.” He stopped the payment. The Ayatollah was back in Iran in months. The Shah fell in a fairly short time but mostly because he was trying to comply with Carter’s instructions not to attack the rioters. So, Carter played both sides to get rid of the Shah and install the Ayatollah. I can’t believe he didn’t do this on purpose because the CIA warned him his actions would make it happen.
The best thing about the evil that is Carter and Obama is that they are both incompetent. Imagine if they had the skill of a Rommel or a Churchill.
30 years from now this will be obama. Giving speeches to american and israeli enemies.
I worked at New York Hospital as a kid when the Shah was dying in it. Still remember the hordes of protesters - Americans - outside, baying for his death. Even then I was perplexed and sickened.
Libs were always blathering on about the Shah’s secret police. On and on and on. They got their way and the Shah was overthrown and horror and chaos ensued. Then, like all good little leftists, they then moved on to their next disaster, leaving us to hold the bag.
Rommel was not a politican, FWIW, and not a bloody murderous type of general to boot. Churchill was a statesman (verus politician) and warrior, too.
And these liberal “doves” have done enough damage; think of Chamberlain and the damage he did.
He’s broke and needs the cash
I never believed that “born again Christian” stuff about Jimmy. I think he found it politically expedient at the time to emphasize this part of his background. But of course, even if he was sincere, that still doesn’t mean he can’t be a total idiot (which he clearly is).
That’s probably the gracious POV, since he can go for any cause besides this one for cash.
Given that he wrote a book titled “Peace Not Apartheid” and given his continuum of actions in this respect, I do not think this was involuntary based on any monetary need.
“Rommel was not a politican,”
Anybody at or above the rank of Major is a politician in my book. They just operate in a military political realm. As I recall, Rommel was going to be tapped by the Hitler bomb conspirators to take his place. The step from general to politician is so small as to be inconsequential. But what I was really thinking of was his competence. The point I was trying to make was what if Carter and Obama were both evil and competent?
Then they would be tyrants.
But they’re faux “peacemakers” in the vein of Neville Chamberlain instead. Fifth-column demoralizers too. Left-wing doves are just as dangerous as left-wing hawks.
“But theyre faux peacemakers in the vein of Neville Chamberlain instead.”
Chamberlain sold out the Sudetenland. But at the same time he presided over a huge military expansion. It was because of him that England had the Hawker Hurricane and the Spitfire in large enough numbers to turn the tide. Out of respect for that Churchill kept Chamberlain briefed on developments until Chamberlain died. Churchill was a class act. And, compared to Chamberlain, Obama and Carter the bit of rural you find between your heel and the sole of your shoe.
If being a Communist/Islamic Idiot Shill was currency then Carter would be a multi billionaire.
Jimmah Carter is still giving America the finger for not returning him to office in 1980, only he has learned to focus his hatred on Israel.
The same way that muzzies hate the “Great Satan” and the “Little Satan”. Same logic.
Yep, I grew up in New York city, the liberal cesspool of the east coast. I couldn’t take it anymore so I moved a few years ago. 3000 people killed on 911, and who do they overwhelmingly vote for? A president who will all but ensure 911 happens again. We are 10 days now from the 911 anniversary, would not be surprised in the least if it happens again on that day especially considering the commie rat bastard they elected as Mayor has all but destroyed the NYPDs terror prevention unit.
One of the factors that limited the speed of Britains military buildup was Chamberlains fear of the deleterious effects that such a process would have on the domestic fiberindeed, the very quality of the British way of life.So Chamberlain was not as hawkish by far as Churchill and has to be criticized for his deliberately impeding the necessary military buildup for a long while thanks to his appeasement policy.
In the wake of the March 1936 German remilitarization of the Rhineland, the issue gained an impetus of its own. (Iain) Macleod noted how Chamberlain in November 1936 spoke out against a quick and total rearmament:It would be rash and panicky to follow Churchills advice that we must lay aside every impediment in raising our own strength, for the sacrifices demanded would injure trade for generations, destroy confidence, and cripple the revenue.In short, a balanced budget was a higher priority item than the buildup of a war machine for a conflict that, in Chamberlains eyes, might never occur.
He was doing that in office as well. He could have backed the Shah and Israel, which would have made the neo-Caliphate of that time shrink back, but his left-wing “ethics” took precedence over the safety of both Israel and the USA. His “peace accords” led directly to the festering “land for peace” wound in Israel.
Yes, I’ve read your posts on your old NYC stomping grounds. As Ed Koch sardonically said after losing the election - the people made their choice and the people must be punished. I think most of the people who threw Dinkins out either have died or moved away.
How would that play in a “classless society”, I wonder?
These Anti-American Marxists now feel that they are in the drivers seat for good so they come out of the closet and broadcast their treasonous intentions.
...moderate umbrella organization for American Muslim groups...
The only difference between a ‘moderate’ muslim and regular muslim is when they saw off heads, they do do it in private.
I’ll admit that Chamberlain was late to the party. But there came a moment when he understood that not only was he wrong, but that his entire world view was wrong. Either shortly before or after the peace in our time statement he told a confidant that there was going to be a war.
President Carter has had thirty-plus years to realize he was wrong and hasn’t made the connection yet. He is so in-denial that he has become (or is letting it show) a Jew-hating Muslim apologist. He can not and never will believe he was wrong. And, can you imagine President I’m-a-better-policy-maker-than-my-policy-makers-and-a-better-speechwriter-than-my-speechwriters could ever admit that the chaos in the world is his fault?
(I, however, am in the alternative school who believes the chaos in the middle east is what either he and/or his Iranian advisers wanted and he’s okay with that. Still, he’d like to be loved as the man who “began to lower the oceans and cool the planet.” It galls me that he’ll be making about a half million per 20 minute speech and his time will be filled and even double-booked.)
Nobody will understand what he is saying anyway with all the drool.
The man should be happy he has a guy who took away the worst president in history spot but he seems to be battling him over this same spot, funny
Jimmy, STFU... you are a senile old man.
Jimmy Carter will not only turn 90 in one month but is the man who broke Herbert Hoover’s record for years survived after his term ended. I still have difficulty wrapping my head around that second part.
Jimmy Carter has been shockingly bigoted against Jews for decades, so this is no surprise. Until the past five years, Jimmy was by a huge margin the most antisemitic and the least competent occupant of our White House in well over a century.
