In his rebuttal to Carter's false penitence, Klein referenced a piece Carter wrote that appeared in the London Guardian, almost simultaneously to his non-apology apology in which he said,
“Israel has long argued that it cannot negotiate with terrorists, yet has
had an entire year without terrorism and still could not negotiate.”
Apparently hundreds of mortars and rockets fired from Azza into Israel, and shootings and firebombings in Judea and Samaria don't count in Jimmy's world. He might want to ask Rav Chai's fatherless children what constitutes a terror attack, since Carter clearly doesn't have the foggiest idea.
Klein goes on to say:
“a careful reading of Jimmy Carter’s supposed apology reveals that in fact
he retracts not a single one of his hostile words and deeds against Israel over
three decades, but on the contrary reaffirms their correctness. Now he adds
insult to injury by purporting to have apologized for his hostile words and
deeds while continuing to add to their number. The former President’s cynicism
knows no bounds.
“He speaks of a year free of anti-Israel terrorism,
ignoring not only continuing Palestinian assaults – like the murder by Mahmoud
Abbas’ Fatah of [a rabbi last month], for which deed Abbas and the PA honored
the terrorists who committed this foul deed – but the hundreds of assaults that
Israeli forces prevent week after week. He ignores continuous Israeli efforts to
negotiate with the PA, which the PA has consistently rebuffed, but fails to
criticize the PA.
“Jewish and Christian Zionist leaders should repudiate
his spurious apology for the sham that it so clearly is.”
It's about time that an American Jewish leader showed a little backbone. We can always count on Abraham Foxman to kiss up to the Jew hating Resident in the White House, or stupidly accept Carter's faux apology saying he should be "congratulated and encouraged," so it's refreshing to hear an American Jew tell Carter to take his fake apology and stuff it.
Now if we can just get American rabbis to start condemning the assassination of Rav Chai, and calling on American Jews to protest the United States' continuing funding and training of Fatah terrorists who are dedicated to killing Jews and destroying Israel. Now that would be something.
