Israel's worst enemy -- Jimmy Carter

This story infuriates me so much that if I were the Israeli government I'd ban him from ever setting foot on their soil again. Furthermore, I'd issue a flat declaration that Jimmy Carter is an enemy of Israel. Why the fussing and fuming? Because the former president decided it was all right to disclose the amount of nukes Israel supposedly has:

Israel has 150 nuclear weapons in its arsenal, former President Jimmy Carter said today, while arguing that the US should talk directly to Iran to persuade it to drop its nuclear ambitions.

His remark, made at the Hay-on-Wye festival which promotes current affairs books and literature, is startling because Israel has never admitted having nuclear weapons, let alone how many, although the world assumes their existence. Nor do US officials deviate in public from that Israeli line. Carter, who has immersed himself since his presidency in Israeli-Palestinian relations, was highly critical of Israeli settlers on the West Bank, and of Israel's refusal to talk to elected officials of the Islamic party Hamas, although he said that Israel's security was his prime concern.

Carter, whose presidency was dominated by the 444-day siege in which Iran held 52 American diplomats hostage, said "my advice to the US would be to start talking to Iran now" to persuade it to drop its nuclear work. But he cited Israel's nuclear arsenal - and those of the US, Russia, China, Britain and France - in arguing that Iran would find it almost impossible to develop, in secret, many weapons and the missiles to deliver them.

Yeah, that's believable -- he has concern for Israel's security. Well he did a bang-up job of showing his concern by revealing a closely guarded secret that Israel has been keeping for their own safety. Drop speculation here because we all know Israel has nukes. But it's their policy to remain mum on that subject. The US has ALWAYS backed them up on that position. But Jimmy Carter's distaste for Israel is now plain as day.

And as for negotiating with Iran, who the Hell does he think he is? He couldn't negotiate his way out of a paper bag. His own negotiations in the Iranian hostage crisis only came to pass when Iran saw who was about to win the presidency, and they didn't want to risk the ire of the new president. Reagan, as we'll recall, was dead set on getting the hostages back if Carter didn't get them out, and we're pretty sure he would have laid out a military option.

Memo to Jimmy Carter: You're irrelevant, pal. You were a disaster as a president -- the worst of the 20th Century in our humble opinion. You negotiate with Israel's enemies in a futile attempt to get them to stop. You negotiated the Framework with North Korea for Clinton, and you, along with Madeline Albright, were duped from the start. Ineffectual, inept, and incompetent are words used to best describe you. And now we can add turncoat to that list. What a piece of sh*t you turned out to be.

I agree with everything you said about Carter. He's a traitor and his passport should be revoked. Rawriter
