More Stupidity from Our Worst Ex-president Ever

Who else but Jimmy Carter would say that there were "too many Jews on the Holocaust Council?"
Adolf Hitler?
Louis Farrakhan?
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

Imagine the reaction if Jimmy Carter had said there were too many Blacks on NAACP Board of Directors...or too many Muslims were officers of CAIR?

TEL AVIV – Former President Jimmy Carter once complained there were "too many Jews" on the government's Holocaust Memorial Council, Monroe Freedman, the council's former executive director, told WND in an exclusive interview.

Freedman, who served on the council during Carter's term as president, also revealed a noted Holocaust scholar who was a Presbyterian Christian was rejected from the council's board by Carter's office because the scholar's name "sounded too Jewish."

Freedman, now a professor of law at Hofstra University, was picked by the council's chairman, author Elie Weisel, to serve as executive director in 1980. The council, created by the Carter White House, went on to establish the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.

Freedman says he was tasked with creating a board for the council and with making recommendations to the White House on how best to memorialize the Holocaust.

He told WND he sent a memo to Carter's office containing recommendations for council board members.

He said his memo was returned with a note on the upper right hand corner that stated, "Too many Jews."

The note, Freedman said, was written in Carter's handwriting and was initialed by Carter.

Freedman said at the time the board he constructed was about 80-perent Jewish, including many Holocaust survivors.

He said at the behest of the White House he composed another board consisting of more non-Jews. But he said he was "stunned" when Carter's office objected to a non-Jew whose name sounded Jewish.

Freedman said he could not provide the historians name to WND because he did not have the man's permission.

"I got a phone call from our liaison at the White House saying this particular historian whose name sounded Jewish would not do. The liaison said he would not even take the time to present Carter with the possibility of including the historian on the board because he knew Carter would think the name sounded too Jewish. I explained the historian is Presbyterian, but the liaison said it wouldn't matter to Carter."

Freedman said he was "outraged by this absurdity."

"If I was memorializing Martin Luther King, I would expect a significant number of board members to be African American. If I was memorializing Native American figures I'd expect a lot of Native Americans to be on the board.

"I do not for a moment consider it inappropriate to build a Holocaust council with a significant majority of the board being Jewish," Freedman stated.

American Crusader, why report hearsay?

You've got a lot of people out there doing a hatchet job on him right now because of the book but you end up seeming the twit when you can pull out anything better than hearsay.

He appeared at Brandeis the other day and was quite well received.

I wonder what the judge is going to say to Carter about Habitat for Humanity and just the overall decency of Jimmy Carter.

I feel sad for you merry widow. Worshipping the end of the world and losing your sense of humanity and justice. Something Jimmy Carter hasn't done.

Ducky..good to see you.
In the court of public opinion, hearsay is often the most damaging of all evidence. Back up by the physical evidence of the memo, I'll take the word of a Hofstra University law professor.
Qui bono?
Surely not Freedman. By speaking out, he will be subjecting himself to the whims of this country's liberal media...which by the way, has never had any problems in ruining careers and reputations with hearsay.
Lastly, of course he received a warm welcome at Brandies University, it's not like he was a conservative trying to speak at Columbia.

And good morning to you tmw and Nancy. The best thing to come out of the Carter administration was "Billy Beer".

This is blatant PROOF that Carter is an ally with America's enemy. He is a strong supporter of the palestinans and also hated Menachem Begin.

You do realize that members of his own foundation have resigned over his book? Clearly not hearsay.

And what of his muffed Iranian crisis?

Carter along with Clinton are the worst Presidents in my time.

Well A.C. since Brandeis is a fairly conservative Jewish college, I think the fact that he was questioned and attended to if only cordially is significant.

A good half of the house walked out on Alan Dershowitz. I think the event was significant.

The fact that you accept a few offhand remarks published on some blog (owned by whom) as definitive doesn't speak well for your objectivity.

Or you can join daniel in accepting C.A.M.E.R.A. as definitve. They have always been considered impartial.

I think the "facts" here are that there is going to be a firestorm over any criticism of Israel even if it is the man who managed the Camp David accords and did some good.

I didn't get the information off someone's blog. It was reported in the WorldNetDaily.
Admittedly they are a right-wing publication but they are no more biased than the New York Times.

If it was an isolated event and not part of a documented anti-Israeli/Jewish bias, I might not have believed its accuracy. Jimmy Carter has shown he doesn't mind changing history or taking credit for other people's work. Even members of his administration question the accuracy of his latest book.

Now when it comes to objectivity ducky, I've noticed you have tunnel vision when it comes to Israel. You call it an apartheid state while ignoring the displacement of Jews from Arab countries. Jews who have lived for over 2000 years in present day Arab countries have been forced to leave and their property confiscated. The few remaining Jews are denied citizenship and must live in ghettos. Why doesn't this deserve your condemnations?

 
At 9:57 AM, Blogger Mr. Ducky said...

American Crusader, Israel's identity as an apartheid state is independent of the experience of jews in muslim states. Stop with the straw men.

One point that even the critics of Carter's Bush have conceded is that Arab land has been confiscated illegaly by Israel. This is a circle jerk and giving Israel impunity isn't going to move anything forward.

Of course there have been a number of people's living in present day Israel since time immemorial. The idea of a Jewish homeland is something I actually support but they have to get off the west bank and realize the water table isn't their exclusive possesion.

 
At 10:01 AM, Blogger American Crusader said...

Just because CAMERA may be a conservative publication doesn't mean it did not accurately point out discrepancies in Carter's book and historical facts.
When you have UN resolutions that completely contradict Carter's assertations, I think I will stick with the historical documents and not Carter's seemingly faulty memory.

 
At 10:15 AM, Blogger American Crusader said...

"The idea of a Jewish homeland is something I actually support but they have to get off the west bank and realize the water table isn't their exclusive possesion."

Israel's presence in the territories began in 1967 as a direct result of the aggressive actions of Israel's neighbors that forced Israel into a war of self-defense.
If Israel hadn't been attacked, the issue would not exist.
Plus the West Bank and Gaza Strip were not under the legitimate and recognized sovereignty of any state prior to the Six Day War so how can they be considered occupied?
Finally..look up UN Resolution 242. Not Jimmy Carter's failed memory but the actual document which does not require Israel to give up the West Bank.

Israel has never "helped itself" to water "beneath Palestinian lands." Israel obtains roughly 30 percent of its water from the Sea of Galilee and the Coastal aquifer, both of which are entirely within Israel's pre-1967 borders. Another 30 percent comes from the Western and Northeastern Aquifers of the Mountain Aquifer system. These aquifers straddle the Green Line separating Israel from the West Bank, but most of the stored water is under pre-1967 Israel, making it easily accessible only in Israel.

Thus, even in the 1950s Israel used 93 percent of the Western Aquifer's water, and 82 percent of the Northeastern Aquifer's water. Today, Israel's share of these aquifers has declined to 83 percent and 80 percent, respectively. That is, under Israeli administration the Palestinian share of these aquifers has actually increased.

 
At 10:26 AM, Blogger American Crusader said...

In reality, Palestinians are too busy killing Jews or each other to ever become self dependent. They rely on Israel, they're sworn enemy for their existence.

The United States Agency for International Development had planned on building a huge desalination plant - which in the beginning would produce about 22 million CBM annually at a cost of $70 million. The project was halted because of the current intifada.

The technology is there for Palestine to use whenever they decide to put down their arms.

Point of order, American Crusader. Israel launched a preemptive srike in '67. Now it may well be moot to argue about who attacked whom but the fact is that Israel struck first.

And that whole event has to be put in context of Suez which it grew from.

I notice you talk about Palestinians killing Israelis but don't mention Israelis killing Palestinians. I have to assume that any strike against a "suspected militant" is legitimate.

Israeli has spent more time and money killing Palestinians than vice versa.

Well suicide bombers don't cost very much.
All you need is some dynamite and a brainwashed Palestinian...preferably young so you don't need to spend much money on raising them.

Israel launched a preemptive attack on Egypt..which had nothing to do with the Golan Heights or the West Bank. Jordan, Syria and Iraq decided to join Egypt which resulted in those lands being lost.

It was reported on NPR last night that Carter was changing at least one sentence from his book in the next printing...as it sounded just a "little" to kooky...

Moderator- There's also been some criticism, which you addressed this week at Brandeis University, of a sentence on page 213 of your book.

Carter- That was a terribly worded sentence which implied, obviously in a ridiculous way, that I approved terrorism and terrorist acts against Israeli citizens.

Moderator- The sentence said that Palestinians and Arabs in general should end suicide bombings and other acts of terrorism, when international laws and the ultimate goals of the roadmap are accepted by Israel?

Carter- The "when" was obviously a crazy and stupid word. My publishers have been informed about that and have changed the sentence in all future editions of the book.

Congratulations to Jimmy Carter for some much-needed honesty on the Palestinian issue. Notice that one cannot be an honest broker for peace in the region without getting attacked by the pro-Israel crowd. Until the US brokers a equitable deal in the region, terrorism will continue and no one will be safe anywhere in the world. Attacking Jimmy Carter is not going to make terrorism go away.

 
At 1:13 AM, Anonymous Libertarian said...

Carter condemns Arab terrorism, like suicide bombing and sending missiles into civilian areas when no state of war exists, only because such acts harm the "Palestinian" cause by revealing them as bloodthirsty butchers.

Most people who lose wars don't. Maybe they should just join the "reality" club.

Is this even TRUE??? World Net Daily is a notorious and notoriously WRONG rag, so I doubt Carter even said this. On top of which, he is the ONLY US president to have helped negotiate a successful peace treaty on behalf of Israel. George NUTCASE Bush and his daddy didn't do SQUAT, neither did Raygun. You don't see Egypt attacking Israel, but you sure do see Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, Fatah, and all the others salivating at the prospect of a Second Holocaust. Jimmy Carter isn't the one who created those conditions, George WORST PRESIDENT EVER Bush IS!

I am sorry to say that i am embarrassed by my brethren. It is ridiculous how many Jews react if anyone criticizes the culture. I think the facade is over-- the World realizes that the Jews have exploited the outpouring of sympathy that resulted after the Holocaust. The World knows that power left unchecked results in corruption-- which is what we see in the way the "chosen people" treat non-Jews. We, as a people, have to realize that we have to respect others in this world. That's what Carter is talking about.

The bottom line RE: Carter is that he's a Zionist. If his book came without a cover, anti-Semitic, pro-torture ass clowns like Dershowitz and the FAKE ZIONIST would have nothing to whine about.

Instead, they cry and moan because he had the audacity to state a truism - the Zionist colony practices Apartheid in occupied Palestine.

First of all, WORLD NET DAILY? HA! MIGHT AS WELL QUOTE FOX!

WomanHonorThyself... by keeping your mouth shut about stuff you don't know anything about.

Brooke, so where exactly is the documentation for him interceding on behalf of a former SS death camp guard? Strangely, the insistence on mentioning the little Carter initial on the upper corner sounds just like the other claim that he thought there were too many Jews on the Holocaust Memorial committee. Neither of these documents have been produced, and we only get hearsay accounts from World Net Daily and Israel National Radio. Ha. Wingers.

To the anonymous poster who said you get attacked by the pro-Israel crowd, I agree with you except you have lumped the idea of Israel together with Zionism. I consider myself pro-Israel, but anti-Zionism. I think by this point Israel has a right to exist, and should be protected, but it should also take the religious symbol off the flag and stop being a racially and religiously styled hegemony. Americans have no business supporting racial/religious hegemonies unconditionally. They create forever wars, and only fools get sucked into them. That's why we left Europe in the first place, remember?

Farmer John, most people who lose elections don't either, so here's your membership form for the reality club.

aron stein, you are right about the way our people have gotten used taking advantage of victim status, like these wingers have gotten used to trying to repair their civil rights records by supporting Zionism. That rings remarkably hollow, too. Their hair still smells like smoke from all the burnt crosses.

Eyes, it is kind of funny because you wingers were calling Jewish people liberal nincompoops until all of a sudden you hopped on the Zionism bandwagon, and now you can't even tell most Jews are liberal and only vote for Zionism out of fear and loyalty.

Steve Harkonnen, it doesn't matter if Israel is "on our side." South Africa was on our side, too. You wingers still can't figure out that loyalty is not a virtue if you're loyal to bad things. *cough Bush cough*

Today it is France that is behind the exodus of Jews from Europe.
