Jimmy Carter – Habitat for Inhumanity

with 11 comments

The Palestinians are a people best known for never missing an opportunity to miss an opportunity for peace. We have all heard their demands for a homeland, so what do they do when the world offers one up on a silver platter. They reject it and instead elect the terrorist organization Hamas to power. So the gift didn’t include Jerusalem as the capital and Israel would still be allowed to exist, but this outright rejection certainly indicates that a Palestinian homeland is not what this is all about. In these times there is nothing easier than going though life motivated by hate and under the safety net of victim.

Jimmy Carter is reportedly preparing an unprecedented meeting with the leader of Hamas, an organization that the U.S. government considers one of the leading terrorist threats in the world.

“It’s about par for the course from President Carter, demonstrating a lack of judgment typical of what he does,” said John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. “To go to Syria to visit Hamas at this point is just an ill-timed, ill-advised decision on his part.”

“When you put the prestige of a former president of the United States in a meeting with one of its terrorist leaders, you’re giving it a legitimacy and currency it never had,” said Bolton.

“I’m not surprised that Carter would do this, as he has been supporting Palestinian extremism for many years,” said Steve Emerson, director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, a watchdog group.

But Ibrahim Hooper, communications director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a non-profit advocacy group, said Carter’s efforts demonstrate he’s a true partner in peace.

“I think if true, this report would indicate that President Carter is willing to travel any road in search of peace,” he said. “I think President Carter would only undertake such a mission if he believed that something could be achieved in terms of peace and reconciliation in the region.”

Let’s see, CAIR praising the actions of Jimmy Carter. That’s enough for anyone to smell a rat, but it’s really not as bad as it sounds. Given Carter’s track record for failure and the Palestinian tendency to avoid success it appears the US will be the winner as Carter will be there and not here.

  1. Hi LC,

    Carter has been brain dead since he lusted a bit too much in his heart and it went on strike. I have it on not so reliable evidence that his aids have to super glue the hammer to his hand at publicity events.

    It’s also interesting to note that the Palestinians already have a homeland, called Jordan, which has a majority Palestinian population and controlled the West Bank before they messed with the Jews. Why the various news sources and the UN consistently fail to mention this is also worthy of note.

  2. Hi Grit

    You make a good point. The Palestinians already possess enough real estate necessary to live in peace. With the amount of money the world has given, every Palestinian family should be living in a Mediterranean Villa. Oh wait, the great Arafat stole most of the aid to support his Swiss Bank Account and perverted lifestyle. The pattern continues yet they blame Israel.

    Have you ever wondered why all the surrounding oil rich nations choose not to help the Palestinians? Could it be that Arabs are keeping other Arabs in poverty first because they don’t like the Palestinians and second to keep them in a position to tweak Israel. Any bets that Jimmy can fix that?

  4. Hi LC,

    As luck would have it, I attended college with a group of Palestinians. Mostly they were nice people and fun to play cards with, although they weren’t tremendously productive or acquainted with modern principles of personal hygiene. At the time, and that was a long time ago, they were over here on the tab of the US Government, as part of one of our seemingly endless foreign aid programs, to study various branches of engineering and chemistry. Once, during a long coffee drinking binge, I asked them what they planned on doing when they returned home. They were unanimous in saying, “build bombs to kill Jews.” I thought it was a joke. Silly me. What a shame I can’t remember their names so I could find out if I used to play cards with terrorists.

  5. Hi in2thefray

    Jimmy is much more in his element building homes, which is clearly the best use of his time. It’s a shame that he doesn’t return full time and retire from his sad attempts at diplomacy and legacy building.

  6. Hi Grit

    Parts of your life are truly an adventure waiting to find its way into a novel.

    So you’ve experienced “the smell.” Yep, been there and may I say it’s something that you never, ever forget. It does however provide one explanation as to why so many lust for death.

  7. Hi LC,

    I must admit that, from what I’ve seem of the lives of others, mine has been a bit unusual. I suspect that this is partially because I’m not hesitant to talk to just about anyone, and the rest is due to some curse cast on one of my ancestors back when they helped invade England. I did, by the way, write a novel about the middle part of my life, but finding a publisher these days is not an easy task. When I find a stretch of undisturbed time, I also have plans for a prequel about my adventures in college that will detail the interesting parts of that ten year period.

    As to the smell, on this I am unusually lenient in my opinion. Really, they live in a desert where water is scarce, so we have to cut them a little slack. I would, however, suggest that our Government spend some of that aid money dropping sticks of deodorant on the more densely populated areas of the Middle East, with, of course, the appropriate instructions on use and warnings that it’s not food.

  8. Hi Grit

    If you believe your book is worthy then there’s always the option to self-publish. Granted the motivation behind this may at first lean toward vanity, but some do quite well. I know several who began this way and were able realize their dreams of becoming a full time author.

    You may be right about cutting a little slack, but at the time my sensibilities didn’t understand the complexity of certain cultural differences especially with the equal access to so much soap and water.

  9. Hi LC,

    I’ve considered the self publishing route, however, lately I’m thinking more along the lines of an ebook. The problem with that, unfortunately, is that I’ll have to type the whole thing back into the computer. I’m sure I’ll do something with it in the next year or three 🙂

  10. Hi Grit

    The best way to use the ebook is as a marketing tool. Simply make the first chapter available as a free download. If the reader likes it then there is a good chance it will be purchased. The greatest problem is if the first chapter is less than stellar or doesn’t provide a hook then it’s over at that point.

    The full version ebook may seem the way to go but unfortunately they run the same risk of piracy as any other software. You sell one copy and suddenly it’s everywhere for free. That’s great if your goal is to be famous, but don’t expect many sales.

    Lesson for the day: Ebook is for marketing & advertisement; hard copy is for sales. Learn it – Know it – Live it.
