Dhimmi Carter and the Nazis

Nearly two months ago, I argued that the Arab money that Dhimmi Carter has received for his Carter Center in Atlanta had nothing to do with his book, "Palestine: Peace not Apartheid." Commenting on Alan Dershowitz's review of the book, I wrote:
Dershowitz ends off with the one paragraph in the entire review with which I must disagree:
"Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid" is so biased that it inevitably raises the question of what would motivate a decent man like Jimmy Carter to write such an indecent book. Whatever Mr. Carter's motives may be, his authorship of this ahistorical, one-sided, and simplistic brief against Israel forever disqualifies him from playing any positive role in fairly resolving the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. That is a tragedy because the Carter Center, which has done much good in the world, could have been a force for peace if Jimmy Carter were as generous in spirit to the Israelis as he is to the Palestinians.
And here I must disagree. Dhimmi Carter is not a 'decent man'. He is an old-style WASP anti-Semite, who would quietly sell Israel down the river while all the while trying to appear decent. For those who have forgotten, have a look at this interview with Der Spiegel during this summer's war in Lebanon:

I don't think that Israel has any legal or moral justification for their massive bombing of the entire nation of Lebanon. What happened is that Israel is holding almost 10,000 prisoners, so when the militants in Lebanon or in Gaza take one or two soldiers, Israel looks upon this as a justification for an attack on the civilian population of Lebanon and Gaza. I do not think that's justified, no. [Holy moral equivalence, Batman! Dhimmi is equating two Israeli soldiers who did nothing to anyone, and who were kidnapped at the border with the likes of Samir Kuntar, who by the way committed his crime while Dhimmi was sitting in the White House. CiJ]

...

Dhimmi Carter is the soft seller of anti-Semitism. And he's way more scary - and effective - than the Mahmoud Ahamdinadinnerjacket's and Thuggo Chavez's of the world. He sounds authoritative rather than ranting. We must know how to answer him.
Tonight, there is more evidence that I was right two months ago: Dhimmi Carter is nothing more than a good old-fashioned Southern Baptist anti-Semite (and I know that not all Southern Baptists are anti-Semites, but when I was growing up in the 1960's and 1970's many of them were, and Dhimmi Carter is a man of the 1970's).

Arutz Sheva tonights carries an interview with Neil Sher, a former Justice Department official who hunted down Nazis for the US government. Sher exposes Carter as being exactly what I said he was.

Hat Tip: NY Nana
“In 1987, Carter had been out of office for seven years or so,” Sher recalled. “It was a very active period for my office. We had just barred Kurt Waldheim – he was then president of Austria and former head of the United Nations – from entering the U.S. because of his Nazi past and his involvement in the persecution of civilians during the war. We had just deported an Estonian Nazi Commandant back to the Soviet Union after a bruising battle after which we were attacked by Reagan White House Communications Director Patrick Buchanan [Another known anti-Semite. CiJ].

“Also around that time, in the spring of 1987, we deported a series of SS guards from concentration camps, whose names nobody would know. One such character we sent back to Austria was a man named Martin Bartesch.”

Bartesch, who had immigrated to the U.S. and lived in Chicago, admitted to Sher’s office and the court that he had voluntarily joined the Waffen SS and had served in the notorious SS Death’s Head Division at the Mauthausen concentration camp where, at the hands of Bartesch and his cohorts, many thousands of prisoners were gassed, shot, starved and worked to death. He also confessed to having concealed his service at the infamous camp from U.S. immigration officials.

“We had an extraordinary piece of evidence against him – a book that was kept by the SS and captured by the American armed forces when they liberated Mauthausen,” Sher said. “We called it the death book. It was a roster that the Germans required them to keep that identified SS guards as they extended weapons to murder the inmates and prisoners.”

An entry in the book for October 10, 1943 registered the shooting death of Max Oschorn, a French Jewish prisoner. His murderer was also recorded: SS guard Martin Bartesch. “It was a most chilling document,” Sher recalled.

...

“One day, in the fall of ’87, my secretary walks in and gives me a letter with a Georgia return address reading ‘Jimmy Carter.’ I assumed it was a prank from some old college buddies, but it wasn’t. It was the original copy of the letter Bartesch’s daughter sent to Carter, after Bartesch had already been deported.

“In the letter, she claimed we were un-American, only after vengeance, and persecuting a man for what he did when he was only 17 and 18 years old.

“I couldn’t help thinking of my own father who returned home with shrapnel wounds after he joined the U.S. Army as a teenager to fight the Nazis and hit the beaches at Normandy at that same age on D-day.

“On the upper corner of the letter was a note signed by Jimmy Carter saying that in cases such as this, he wanted ‘special consideration for the family for humanitarian reasons.’
Read the whole thing.

UPDATE 12:36 AM BOSTON TIME

Israel Insider is reporting that Dhimmi told Al-Jazeera earlier this week that 'Palestinian' missiles shot at civilians along the Negev's borders with Gaza are not terrorism:
Former President Jimmy Carter told the Arab news network Al- Jazeera that he does not consider Palestinian missile attacks on Israeli civilians -- a war crime and breach of human rights, according to the UN -- to be acts of terror.

In an interview to defend his book, Carter, apparently in an effort to not offend pro-Palestinian Muslim viewers of the program, stated that "I don't consider... I wasn't equating the Palestinian missiles with terrorism."

Carter went on to explain that other acts of Palestinian violence, like targeting civilians in bus bombings or children at schools, should not be committed because they make Palestinians look bad. Such acts, Carter explained, "create a rejection of the Palestinians among those who care about them. It turns the world away from sympathy and support for the Palestinian people."
What an indecent man!

Carl,

Thanks for the hat tip. When I saw that article on Arutz Sheva? I literally had to look at it twice. As evil as he is, this was something that I did not expect to see.

'Dhimmi Carter is not a 'decent man'. He is an old-style WASP anti-Semite, who would quietly sell Israel down the river while all the while trying to appear decent.'

And he puts the knife into our backs with that repugnant grin on his face.

I wonder how he will refute this. I am sure he will try.

Any politician already in office, or intending to run? Let them side with him or continue a friendship, if this ever makes the MSM, should be renounced by their political party.Though he is an ex-President? He deserves to be shunned for the rest of his miserable life.

Well, if this is true, then "dhimmi" is hardly the word to describe Carter.

I wonder if Carter thinks that the takeover of the US embassy in Tehran "was not terrorism?"

Or maybe the only problem was that it "made [Iranians] look bad?"

I would call Carter a joke, but it's not that funny is it? I'm Southern, and I'm a Baptist, but I'm of the Baptist type who knows that Israel is God's chosen people. Opposing Israel is opposing God. Hence, Jimmah Cahtah does not act much like a true Christian.

Carter used to tout his relationship with Admiral Hyman Rickover for political advantage.

This is one sorry dweeb. But, of course, his message would not resonate too much now if our official media hadn't set him up as a saint. Evidently, the aid and comfort he has given to enemies of freedom are of no concern to inquiring reporters.
