A New York Post editorial calls upon the Democrats to cut all ties to Dhimmi Carter. If only they had the integrity and courage to do so. “Jimmy For Terror,” from the New York Post (thanks to all who sent this in):
January 15, 2007 — Has a former president of the United States – a Nobel Peace Prize winner, no less – given his blessing to wanton murder and terrorist assaults against Israel?
Sure looks that way.
How else to read that astonishing statement on page 213 of Jimmy Carter’s new anti-Israel screed, “Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid”?
To wit: “It is imperative that the general Arab community and all significant Palestinian groups make it clear that they will end the suicide bombings and other acts of terrorism when international laws and the ultimate goals of the Roadmap for Peace are accepted by Israel.” (Emphasis added.)
You don’t have to read between the lines here.
Carter isn’t calling on the Palestinians to give up terror and murder now as a way to convince Israel they are serious about peace. Rather, he says they can wait until they’ve achieved their goals at the bargaining table. No need, says Carter, to give up terrorism until then.
Certainly, that’s how 14 members of the Carter Center’s advisory board read that paragraph. Indeed, it’s why they angrily submitted their resignations last week.
Read it all.
