Carter's Letter To the LA Times; My Letter TO HIM
(Batya wrote with this lastest missive from AhmaJimmy-Dude--and I completely lost it...)
Speaking Frankly About Israel and Palestine
Jimmy Carter says his recent book is drawing knee-jerk accusations of anti-Israel bias:
Book reviews in the mainstream media have been written mostly by representatives of Jewish organizations who would be unlikely to visit the occupied territories, and their primary criticism is that the book is anti-Israel. Two members of Congress have been publicly critical. Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for instance, issued a statement (before the book was published) saying that "he does not speak for the Democratic Party on Israel." Some reviews posted on Amazon.com call me "anti-Semitic," and others accuse the book of "lies" and "distortions." A former Carter Center fellow has taken issue with it, and Alan Dershowitz called the book's title "indecent."
You are a disgrace. Your book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid has been called a fabrication, an invention, and a fantasy by your own colleagues. You have deliberately lied--simply to hurt the Jewish people and the state of Israel. You have done it under the guise of engendering debate--and then have been too chickenhearted to debate Alan Dershowitz on the matter (all the while calling him stupid! Were that the case, then you could easily have beaten him and demonstrated the truth of your own words and the superiority of your position. One HAS to wonder why you won't do that... and we know why.)
The weakness of your position has been well-documented elsewhere. Every time you open your mouth, you prove the smallness of your heart, the lack of commitment to truth, and your purposeful ugliness: I am not a "representative of Jewish organizations", nor do I have "knee-jerk reactions" (thanks for dismissing my very real and justified outrage over your conduct.) In fact, I am not Jewish at all. I have the best reason of them all for despising your work and naming it as a source of shame; no self-interest can be said to interfere with my judgements. I could turn a blind eye and who would know?
The same person would know who knows of your calumny and betrayal: the Jews, Israel, and God Himself. That is enough for the rest of us to say, 'What you are doing is wrong. You have lied. You owe the world an apology. You owe the Israelis and all Jews MORE than an apology--and you need to spend the rest of your life making up for the bitterness, hate, and anti-Semitism that poisons your own soul, shames America, trashes your legacy, and hurts all of mankind. Then you need to shut up and sit down. You have done enough damage in your life for a thousand Hitlers.
You disgrace the office of the Presidency. You disgrace your family and the Carter name. You disgrace all those who were stupid enough to elect you to high public office. Your legacy will always have a swastika around it's neck. With what ignominy will you leave this earth! A decent person would be ashamed; America is ashamed of you because you lack the courage to be ashamed of yourself. Your last acts on earth have been your worst; you need our prayers and a forgiveness for which you have not asked. I cannot give you either one.
I shall spend every moment I can publicly proclaiming you (the CensureCarter.com bumpersticker is permanently on my sidebar) to be exactly what you are: a bitter, unkind, unthinking, unfair anti-Semite.
