...no excuses...I was just too lazy to post...but there will always be Jimmy Carter

...yes, the Jiminy Cricket of the Left Wing...he's now trying to explain (poorly I might add) that the title of his new book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid is not damning the Israelis as racists.

From The San Antonio Express-News

ATLANTA (AP) -- Former President Jimmy Carter issued a letter to American Jews on Friday, explaining the use of the term "apartheid" in his new book and sympathizing with Israelis who fear terrorism.

Carter, author of a book on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that advocates "peace not apartheid" in the region, wrote the letter following a meeting this week with a group of rabbis in Phoenix.

The letter was released by the Carter Center, a human rights organization founded by the former president.

Carter wrote that the letter's purpose was to reiterate that his use of "apartheid" did not apply to circumstances within Israel, that Israelis are deeply concerned about terrorism from "some Palestinians," and that a majority of Israelis want peace with their neighbors.

Carter wrote that he understands Israelis' fear of terrorism, and "reiterated my strong condemnation of any such acts of terrorism."


So he goes on in a related article, which the newspaper chooses not to run online, Carter accuses the Israelis of having a policy of "strangulation." This is because Israelis dare to settle in areas occupied after the 1967 war which Israel won.

"...a lot of the territory I was in was the Palestinian territories-all down the Jordan River Valley and a good portion up around the Golan Heights. Those were Israeli-occupied territories. At that time, everybody expected the Israeli forces to withdraw from the occupied territories. Nobody dreamed that there would be a massive escalation of the Israelis to colonize, you might say, the entire area of the West Bank."

Carter cracks me up. He wrecks the best economy in the World, drives inflation to unimaginable heights, drives interest rates beyond unreasonably high, has Coke-sniffing aides (oh, you don't remember Ham Jordon?), is publicly embarrassed by being attacked by bunny rabbits, responds to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan by boycotting the Moscow Olympics (that went over well), has a brother who was an agent for Uncle Moammar Khadafy's Libya, had a corrupt banker running the Office of Management and Budget, gave away the Panama Canal, and the coup de grace, he set in motion the activities that resulted in the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Iran and the subsequent hostage crisis that lasted 444 days for many of the Embassy staff.

Worst President Ever? I tend to agree. Say what you want about Bush, he ain't no angel in my book, but Jimmy is an anti-Semitic little roach whose impending doom will be celebrated by more than one in the United States.

Jimmy is the most ignorant bastard on the planet, but for some reason is still considered a hero to the left. Yes, without question, he is the worse president in US history. I do not normally wish ill will on people, but everytime he opens his big mouth I wonder how much longer that little fucker is going to contaminate this planet.
