Why Jimmy the Dhimmi hates Israel?

A former senior adviser to America's worst President said that he believes that Jimmy the Dhimmi Carter hates Israel because the country does not sufficiently appreciate the 'peace treaty' with surrender to Egypt that Carter negotiated.
When former President Jimmy Carter revealed that Israel has more than 150 nuclear weapons, he clearly had a motive, according to his administration’s deputy senior adviser, Marc Ginsberg: “I think there’s no doubt — particularly given the vantage point I had in the White House at the end of his administration — that he resents the way in which Israel and the American-Jewish community have failed to express sufficient gratitude for his efforts on behalf of peace in the Middle East.

“In my judgment, there’s no other explanation,” Ginsberg says.

Ginsberg, a former ambassador to Morocco and now senior global affairs analyst for Fox News, says that Carter knows what he said is something never discussed by America or Israel and that disclosing Israel’s nuclear arsenal is due to his growing antagonism towards the Jewish state.

“There’s no doubt he knows exactly what he is doing when he’s making these statements, or making misrepresentations that Hamas has agreed to recognize Israel if certain conditions occur, or to the book he wrote [‘Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid’] referring to Israel.”
Ginsberg also proposes a couple of other explanations for Carter's anti-Israel behavior:
Ginsberg says Carter’s revelation fits into a pattern of mischief on the part of the former president in recent months, “probably fueled by the amount of money the Carter Center is getting from Arab sources.” [If you follow those three links, you will find that Alan Dershowitz and others have also suggested that Carter is motivated by money received from Arab sources - and that I disagree with that assessment. CiJ].

Israel and the United States have gone on record as saying Carter’s remarks are irresponsible, but Ginsberg says they are “down right mischievous.”

“He drops these mischievous lines and engages in mischievous diplomacy that, I believe, are counterproductive not only to America’s interests in the Middle East, but also, ultimately, to his own legacy,” he says.

“The idea that you drop the number of nuclear weapons Israel may have at a time when it’s been tradition to treat the number from a position of ‘strategic ambiguity’ is not only irresponsible, it also fuels incentives on the part of countries like Iran to justify their own nuclear program.”

Ginsberg also can’t fathom why Carter tries to engage with Hamas, a sworn enemy of Israel, at a time when Hamas doesn’t recognize Israel’s right to exist. He says Israel has enormous disdain and contempt for Carter’s actions and believes Carter can never again play a role in the peace process now that he no longer enjoys the impartiality of either side.

“It seems to me to be counterproductive to the legacy he wants to preserve: that he’s a man of impartiality and a man of peace,” he says.
Ginsberg goes on to state the obvious: Carter is not an honest broker when it comes to Israel.

Over the nearly two and a half years I have written this blog, I have seen several explanations for why Carter hates Israel so much. This is the one I find most intriguing. It's from Alan Dershowitz's review of Carter's 'book.'

And it's not just the facts; it's the tone as well. It's obvious that Mr. Carter just doesn't like Israel or Israelis. He lectured Golda Meir on Israeli's "secular" nature, warning her that " Israel was punished whenever its leaders turned away from devout worship of God." He admits that he did not like Menachem Begin. He has little good to say about any Israelis — except those few who agree with him. But he apparently got along swimmingly with the very secular Syrian mass-murderer Hafez al-Assad. Mr. Carter and his wife Rosalynn also had a fine time with the equally secular Arafat — a man who has the blood of hundreds of Americans and Israelis on his hands:

Rosalynn and I met with Yasir Arafat in Gaza City, where he was staying with his wife, Suha, and their little daughter. The baby, dressed in a beautiful pink suit, came readily to sit on my lap, where I practiced the same wiles that had been successful with our children and grandchildren. A lot of photographs were taken, and then the photographers asked that Arafat hold his daughter for a while. When he took her, the child screamed loudly and reached out her hands to me, bringing jovial admonitions to the presidential candidate to stay at home enough to become acquainted with is own child.

There is something quite disturbing about these pictures.

Yes, Jimmy the Dhimmi may actually resent that so many Israelis are secular and not religious. Food for thought.

But I want to come back to that 'peace treaty' for a minute, because our 'lack of appreciation' for it may come as a surprise to many of you abroad. Israelis have a lot not to like about our 'peace treaty' with Egypt. I believe that had Anwar Sadat not been cut down by an assassin's bullet in 1981, things might have been different. But then, that was part of the problem with the Israel - Egypt treaty from the beginning: It was made with a man and not with a country.

The treaty opened up American coffers for huge amounts of American foreign aid to Egypt, most of which has gone for military armaments that are clearly directed at Israel (Egypt's military exercises always assume - like its people do - that Israel is the enemy). The peace is often referred to as a 'cold peace' and all of the 'exchanges' have gone one way: We send Israelis to Egypt, we pump up the Egyptian economy, no Egyptian will set foot in Israel. President Mubarak has been here exactly once during his entire time in office: for Yitzchak Rabin's funeral.

On top of that, the Egyptian treaty set the precedent of Israel giving up every last inch of land liberated in the defensive war this country fought in 1967. That went right down to an international arbitration over the small strip of land known as Taba in northern Sinai. And because Egypt got back every last inch of land it lost to us in 1967, we face uncompromising demands from both the Syrians and the 'Palestinians' to this day. After all, the Syrians and the 'Palestinians' won't take less than the Egyptians got.

But perhaps the greatest indicator of how little there is to appreciate about the Israel - Egypt treaty comes from Egyptians themselves. This comes from the Egyptian blogger Sandmonkey and I quoted from it here and here. Sandmonkey is a very straight shooter.

But then I rememebrd that we- the majority of us anyway- don't want peace with Israel, and are not interested in any real dialogue with them. We weren't then and we are not now. The Entire peace process has always been about getting the land back, not establishing better relations. Even when we do get the land back, it's not enough. People in Egypt lament daily the Camp David treaty that prevents us from fighting. In Gaza they never stopped trying to attack Israel. In Lebanon Hezbollah continued attacking even after the Israeli withdrawel. And the people- the majority of the arab population- support it. Very few of us are really interested in having any lasting Peace or co-existance. I mean, if our left is asking for war, what do you think the rest of the population is thinking?

I think that the Israeli want peace with us because they don't want their lives disrupted. They don't want to have the IDF soldiers fighting in Gaza, rockets coming into their towns from Hamas or having to go to wars against Hezbollah to get their soldiers back. I think they want peace because they want their peace of mind. They view us as if we were a headache. We view them as if they are a cancer.

Still wonder why Israelis don't appreciate Carter's treaty?

Exactly. Jimmy Carter's role in those negotiations has been exaggerated. At the time Israel and Egypt for their own self-interested reasons, wanted to make a deal and it would have happened whether or not Jimmy Carter had been President at the time. Most Israelis probably say Jimmy Carter's involvement made reaching a peace treaty more difficult than it should have been. And they have no reason to be grateful to him for that - or what has happened since.

While acknowledging that Carter is a Dhimmi par excellence, an embarrassment to America and a threat to Israel, is there anything he's said that we didn't know years ago via Vanunu? Is he in a position to have definitive knowledge of Israel's arsenal?

FAS tosses a number of estimates around, and the only one that seems to match Carter's statement derives from Vanunu.

carter is a vile, small man who often demonstrates how utterly useless he is. He should do us a favor and just croak-we'll try to live through the certain liberal media attempts to portray his greatness without gagging too much. Unles obama sama can top him-a distinct possibility-he remains the worst US president ever...

I think the simplest explanation might be the most useful in explaining Carter:

He's an antisemite.

He sits in judgment of all Jews- not just Israelis and pronounces them all guilty. American Jews, he has informed us, are guilty of dual loyalty. Israeli Jews are guilty of murder and genocide.
Read his Sunday School sermons. They're filled with 19th century Christian antisemitic imagery.

Carter believes he is the Christ who Jews have refused to accept as their Saviour. Further, Jews prevented Jimmy/Jesus from carrying out his "mission" to the world. Jews, for Carter, will always be guilty of two deicides...Jesus and Jimmy.

I believe Carter is against Israel simply because he doesn't think Israel's rebirth in 1948 is fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
He might be of the mindset which is common among Anglo-Saxons that they are Israel. Dominionists believe this.
Many see modern day Israel as the efforts of Jews and not a miracle of God.
Israel is Israel and because I see that I know we are near the Millennium reign of Jesus Christ.
