Jimmy Carter: Traitor and Terror-Supporter?

Elder over at Elder of Ziyon has several new articles up that highlight some interesting behaviors by our illustrious and world-travelling former president Jimmy Carter.

The first of his news-citing articles comes from the Guardian of UK. In his post, Elder highlights how Carter is berating the UK for "one of the greatest human rights crimes on Earth," through its support of the embargo of the terrorist gang Hamas. Yes, you read that right. Carter said that placing an embargo against terrorists constitutes the "GREATEST human rights crimes on Earth". Carter then berates the UK for not having the courage to stand on its own feet and defying the US and the embargo. Carter also felt the need to attack:

Palestinian Authority president, Mahmoud Abbas, and prime minister, Salam Fayyad, who represent the Fatah movement, he was scathing about their exclusion of Hamas. He described the Fatah-only government as a "subterfuge" aimed at getting round Hamas's election victory two years ago.

Last night, before a packed crowd at Hay, Carter spoke of his "horror" at America's involvement in torturing prisoners, saying he wanted the next US president to promise never to do so again.

He left an intriguing hint that George Bush might even face prosecution on war crimes charges once he left office.


See below the fold for even more Jimmy-Love: In Elder's other article, he finds a great gem that truly reveals Carter's character and the person he really is.

Israel has 150 nuclear weapons in its arsenal, former President Jimmy Carter said yesterday, while arguing that the US should talk directly to Iran to persuade it to drop its nuclear ambitions.


Does that sound like a certain presidential candidate to you?

Please note, that Israel, since its existence, has refused to acknowledge or even allow the size and extent of its nuclear capabilities to be revealed. And as its greatest ally, the US has supported that secrecy. Especially since we were the ones that either helped them build or supplied them with their arsenal. Now comes Carter to reveal state secrets to Israel's enemies.

Elder points out:
He just gave priceless information to Iran about Israel's nuclear arsenal.

Does this make him a spy? A turncoat? I don't know, but at the very least it should mean that whatever little credibility he still has as a decent human being is now utterly lost.


More from that news article Elder cites:
His remark, made at the Hay-on-Wye festival which promotes current affairs books and literature, is startling because Israel has never admitted having nuclear weapons, let alone how many, although the world assumes their existence. Nor do US officials deviate in public from that Israeli line. Carter, who has immersed himself since his presidency in Israeli-Palestinian relations, was highly critical of Israeli settlers on the West Bank, and of Israel's refusal to talk to elected officials of the Islamic party Hamas, although he said that Israel's security was his prime concern.


These quotes were made at a "festival" for books and literature?!?!?!

If you don't read Elder, you should. He finds all the nice articles that rarely get mentioned in American press.

For the record, and for any Secret Service agents that might run across this page:—

Cletus is notorious for making completely ridiculous statements like the one listed above. To my knowledge, he doesn't mean it. If it's a problem, though, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns or require further information.

For more information about the comment policy on this site, please refer here. If I thought Cletus were serious for one second, his comment would've been toast—But, knowing him, it's merely par for the course.

Water under the bridge, as they say.

Brian, you should have pointed them to AP since they are your masters now, right?

(snicker)

however, I think Cletus somewhat represents the views of many offended patriotic Americans over the actions of this has-been anti-American Non-President.
