Peanuts for Palestine

I don't care that Jimmy Carter sees it fit to undermine the wishes of his government and insert himself into sensitive world affairs. I really don't care that he seems to omit certain parts of history and perpetuate anti-Israeli sentiment.

But how can you support Jimmy Carter laying a wreath on Yasser Arafat's grave, essentially venerating an outright murderer? Maybe he can make a stop in Magdeburg and drop off some flowers near Adolf's remains? This is totally unnecessary and proves that while Arab leaders' money is in Carter's pockets, Carter is in the pockets of Arab leaders. And they're laughing at us.

Take a look at some words from the man Carter thought deserved to be commemorated:

"Peace for us means the destruction of Israel."

"We will not bend or fail until the blood of every last Jew from the youngest child to the oldest elder is spilt [sic]"

"We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state.

"We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion."


Why doesn't Carter lay wreaths on the graves of the Israeli men, women, and children killed in public places by Arafat's suicide bombers? Or the Jewish children killed a month ago in Jerusalem by a Palestinian murderer? Oh, I'm sorry, would you prefer "armed militant" or "freedom fighter?" It really takes a "freedom fighter" to shoot children in the back.

And this was just Arafat's position on Jews and Israel. What did he do for the Palestinians? For one, he kept them in poverty. He was an embezzler of the lowest order, effectively taking money he was not entitled to. Even Arafat's wife, upon her exile to Europe, took hundreds of millions of dollars which rightfully belonged to the Palestinian people. Arafat was no less a stranger to thievery than he was to murder, and during his last years he took nearly $2 million dollars a month from the Palestinians to line his own pockets.

Speaking of money, it's time to follow the trail. Can you guess which of the following entities have donated enormous sums to the Carter Center?

  • The government of Saudi Arabia
  • Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud
  • The Sultanate of Oman (and the sultan himself)
  • The government of the United Arab Emirates
  • Osama's brother Bakr BinLadin, for none other than the Saudi BinLadin Group
  • Saudi Arabian and Kuwaiti development funds
  • OPEC development funds (including Middle East states, Nigeria, and Venezuela)
The answer is all of the above. Is it any surprise that the peanut farmer's anti-Israeli views happen to coincide with the source of this questionable funding (ahem, the Arab world)? Carter says:

"I think there is no doubt that if Israel is ever going to find peace...Hamas will have to be included in the process."

Above: Follow the money.

No, Hamas will have to be obliterated from the process. How many times does someone have to tell you their only goal is to destroy you (not to "find peace") before you destroy them first? Not the Palestinians. Not Gaza. Hamas. Hamas has got to go.

I want to tell Gaza the same thing I want to tell Americans: Throw the schmucks out, including Jimmy Carter. He has more business picking peanuts in Plains than talking to murderers one day and pretending to like matzah the next.
