Spurred by Schlussel Readers, Jimmy Carter’s Fake “Apology” to Israel, Jews to Aid Grandson’s Ambitions
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
Recently, I told you about Jimmy Carter’s grandson, Jason Carter, and his plans to run for the Georgia Legislature from a State Senate district with a significant Jewish population. I also wrote about how he refused to answer questions regarding Israel and HAMAS–his grandfather’s pan-Islamist politics–claiming those issues aren’t relevant to his race. But, as I noted, they are relevant, because now is the time to stop him before he runs for federal office and becomes as friendly with HAMAS as his annoying grandfather.
HAMAS’ Jimmuh Issues Fake Israel Apology to Help Grandson Jason Carter
Some DebbieSchlussel.com readers who live in DeKalb County, Georgia and are potential future constituents of his contacted Jason Carter, at my suggestion, and asked him about his view on HAMAS and Israel. I told the readers, though, that I don’t believe his response, no matter what it is, because his grandfather, Jimmuh, was extremely pro-Israel when he ran for President against Gerald Ford. In fact, he ran to the right of Ford on many issues, domestic and foreign, including Israel.
Well, apparently, the news has gotten to his crotchety old HAMAS- and Hezbollah-lovin’ granddaddy, because Jimmy Carter issued an obviously fake apology to the Jews and Israel that is not only phony, but nothing less than sheer politics designed to help rescue his grandson’s political ambitions. Carter now says–after years of Israel-hatred and propagandizing–that he wants our forgiveness. Sorry, Jimmuh, only G-d can forgive you. And, sad for you, sometimes the sins of the fathers are visited on their descendants.
I had planned to found something called No Peanuts PAC to oppose Jason Carter. I was looking into Georgia campaign finance law and whether there are restrictions on non-Georgia political donations in the case of state elective offices. And I may still pursue this.
Rest assured, though, Jimmy Carter’s fake apology was spurred on by you, dear readers, who contacted (grand) Son of Jimmuh. And it’s as real as crocodile tears.
You can trust “Jasuh” as much as I trust Jimmuh. As in, not at all. I neither believe, nor accept, Jimmy Carter’s “apology.” And you shouldn’t either.
Reader “I Am Me” adds:
Carter is lying, I cannot determine if his lie is funny (laughing at him) or pathetic. This sort of reminds me of when the first President Bush, after realizing his re-election chances were doomed, tried to apologize for his “one little man” comment regarding then-Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir and the loan guarantees.
Timing is everything. And this apology is all about grandsonny’s future career. Not any change of heart on Israel. You don’t write a gazillion anti-Israel, lie-filled books and engage in propaganda meetings and strategy with top HAMAS and Hezbollah terrorist leaders, and then say “Oh, I made a mistake.” Not with any sincerity.
And there’s none here.
It’s a trite saying, but I’ll say it anyway: He can take it and shove it. Save your fertilizer for someone’s peanut farm or Hezbollah pot field, Jimmuh. It won’t make anything grow here.
**** UPDATE: Reader “Common Sense” writes:
I have one comment regarding Carter’s alleged “apology”: If he’s really sincere, then he should do the following:
1. Publically admit that his book Palestine: Peace not Apartheid is a propagandistic screed, filled with inaccuracies and falsehoods, intended to vilify Israel and support the Palestinian cause.
2. As a consequence of #1, Carter should repudiate this book and send all profits resulting from its sales to Israeli charities which help the victims of Palestinian attacks, both military (e.g. rockets launched into Israel from Gaza, Lebanon, etc.) and personal (e.g suicide bomber activity).
3. He should apologize for all his past and present efforts to legitimize terrorist entities such as Hamas, and acknowledge that to regard Hamas as a prospective “peace partner” is an absurdity.
I would demand even more, but I know that Carter will do none of the above, so what’s the point?
His grandson, Jason, on the other hand, should be subjected to relentless questioning concerning his views on Israel and other geopolitical issues despite his objections. Voters have a right to ask such questions, as one may reasonably assume that the younger Carter is likely to have political aspirations that would propel him into the House or Senate sometime in the future. It would be good to have his views on record now, for future reference. If he continues to dodge such questioning, this, too, should be noted, and made public should he seek such office at a later date.
Amen. Right on target.
