[Jimmy] Carter Center Sued for Providing Support to Hamas
Jimmy Carter’s unstinting hatred for Israel paved the way
The Washington Free Beacon reported Monday that the Zionist
Advocacy Center is alleging in a suit that former President Jimmy Carter’s
nonprofit organization, the Carter Center, “has used taxpayer funding to
provide material support to international terrorist groups, including Hamas.”
Given Carter’s longstanding and abundantly established hatred for the Jewish
state, this allegation is no great shock. Nonetheless, the specter of an
American President’s foundation funding a jihad terrorist group demonstrates
how far we have fallen.
A real CLASS ACT, Jimmy Carter
The Zionist Advocacy
Center further alleges that the Carter Center “received more than $30 million
in taxpayer grants while violating federal statutes barring it from using the
cash to provide material support to terror groups.” Not only that: “The
plaintiffs maintain the Carter Center has violated the law by hosting
designated terrorists at is facilities, as well as by providing various forms
of assistance to the Palestinian terror group Hamas and other known terror
No one who has
watched Carter over the years can really be surprised. Back in 2008, Carter
claimed that Hamas was prepared to accept the right of Israel to “live as a
neighbor next door in peace.” He had no grounds for saying so, and it wasn’t
remotely true, but this claim helped him perpetuate the fiction that the
Israelis, not the Palestinians, were responsible for the failure of all peace
talks and the ongoing tensions between the two.
Two years before
that, Carter published the notorious book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid,
in which he ignored the jihad imperative to destroy Israel, and the numerous
maximalist and even genocidal declarations from Palestinian leaders, and
painted an outrageous fantasy of a peaceful Palestinian people, ennobled by
suffering and besieged by a rapacious Israeli war machine that was imposing
apartheid policies in the name of a false need for security.
review in the Huffington Post (of all places), Alan Dershowitz eviscerated
Carter’s book, pointing out that in order to make his case, Carter not only had
to ignore and misrepresent present-day realities, but rewrite history as well:
Carter repeatedly claims that the Palestinians have long supported a
two-state solution and the Israelis have always opposed it. Yet he makes no
mention of the fact that in 1938 the Peel Commission proposed a two-state
solution with Israel receiving a mere sliver of its ancient homeland and the
Palestinians receiving the bulk of the land. The Jews accepted and the
Palestinians rejected this proposal, because Arab leaders cared more about
there being no Jewish state on Muslim holy land than about having a Palestinian
state of their own.
He barely mentions Israel’s acceptance, and the Palestinian rejection,
of the U.N.’s division of the mandate in 1948.
He claims that in 1967 Israel launched a preemptive attack against
Jordan. The fact is that Jordan attacked Israel first, Israel tried desperately
to persuade Jordan to remain out of the war, and Israel counterattacked after
the Jordanian army surrounded Jerusalem, firing missiles into the center of the
city. Only then did Israel capture the West Bank, which it was willing to
return in exchange for peace and recognition from Jordan.
What a disgrace this guy was and is
Carter repeatedly mentions Security Council Resolution 242, which
called for return of captured territories in exchange for peace, recognition
and secure boundaries, but he ignores the fact that Israel accepted and all the
Arab nations and the Palestinians rejected this resolution. The Arabs met in
Khartum and issued their three famous “no’s”: “No peace, no recognition, no
negotiation” but you wouldn’t know that from reading the history according to
Many find it odd that
the renowned architect of the Camp David Accords would stoop to all this; but
it must be remembered that at Camp David, Israel gave up a great deal in
exchange for little more than promises – promises that have been repeatedly
broken. Jimmy Carter’s record of hostility toward the Jewish state spans his
entire career. He has never publicly recognized that it faces the same jihad
foes that attacked America on September 11, 2001, and counsels policies of
appeasement and accommodation that, if fully implemented, would only embolden
the jihadis and further weaken Israel.
And so now it is
being claimed in a court case that the Carter Center has been aiding Hamas.
Longtime Carter watchers can only say: of course.
