Forget diplomacy. Jimmy Carter’s silence would be the best thing to happen to American/Israeli relations.
Israel is headed for a clash with main ally the United States over the issue of Jewish settlements, former US president Jimmy Carter said in an interview on Sunday.
Asked by the liberal Haaretz newspaper whether the Jewish state was looking at a “head-on collision” with the United States if it doesn’t comply with Washington’s demands, Carter said “Yes.”
Now, I hate to admit it, but that may very well be true. Thus far, President Obama has not exactly been a staunch supporter of Israel.
- U.S. Reform Rabbis tell Israel that Obama Knows Best
- What Israel Fears More than the Palestinians
- Obama’s Silence on Iran is Deafening….
- Wilders Tells Israel: The EU Has Never Been Your Friend…And Never Will Be….
The former president, who brokered the historic peace treaty between Israel and Egypt in 1979, said Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank were the biggest hurdle in the hobbled Middle East peace process, saying they were “illegal and (an) obstacle to peace.”
Yeah, because the Jews are the problem. Those lousy settlers keep getting in the way of those friendly Palestinian rockets. The nerve!
Carter on Sunday made a rare visit to a settlement, saying he went to Neve Daniel “to make sure they (the settlers) understand my own attitude towards Israel, the Jewish population across the world and the Jewish settlements.” (H/TÂ â€“Â Bretibart)
I do understand Carter’s attitude toward Israel:
He despises them, and will almost always side with Palestinian terrorists. Why? Because he’s a rabid anti-Semite.
