America's worst ex-President to visit Neve Daniel?

I used to refer to Jimmy Carter as "America's worst President." It's a habit I may need to break. So for now, I'll call him, "America's worst ex-President." That should cover me until January 2013.

Carter is scheduled to visit the Jewish town on Neve Daniel in the Etzion bloc on Sunday and all I can say to this is what the heck were these people thinking? Who invited Carter to visit a Jewish town the day after he got an award from the 'Palestinian Authority' (and declared that he has been in love with the 'Palestinian people' for 'years') and three days after he met with the Hezbullah commander who was responsible for the suicide bombing at the Marine barracks in Beirut 25 years ago?
Three days after declaring that “Mideast peace is impossible without Hamas,” and a day after receiving one of the highest awards bestowed by the Palestinian Authority, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is set to visit Neve Daniel in Gush Etzion on Sunday – and residents say they are very unhappy with the visit, to say the least.

In a letter, a grassroots residents' committee urged residents to contact Gush Etzion Regional Council Head Shaul Goldstein, whose home Carter is supposed to visit Sunday, and express their disapproval of the meeting. Several petitions are being circulated condemning the visit.

The committee's letter said that the former U.S. president, known for his hostitlity towards Israel, was trying to put on a guise of “even-handedness” in visiting a town in Judea and Samaria (Yesha), but “Carter is unfair and is far from being objective."

“Carter has always, and will always, speak up and defend those who wish to destroy the State of Israel. He pushes an anti-Israel agenda, while presenting himself as a good-willed broker who seeks peace and is ready to listen to 'both sides.' This makes him all the more dangerous,” the letter added.


The letter says that Carter long ago crossed the line, and that “he is a clear supporter of our enemies. Now he is attempting to present himself as an 'honest broker.' We cannot allow ourselves to be the instruments of his rehabilitation. We must tell him: 'You are working against the Jewish nation in its land, and you cannot be an honest broker.'”
Let me guess: Goldstein's good friend Shimon Peres asked him to host Carter?

Its like Yesha hosting a Nazi. It just makes me sick to see Jews devoid of self-respect!

The residents could hold a necktie party for him. Or an old-fashioned American Tar and Feathers.

They could go biblical and toss a few rocks.

Just a few ideas for a Dhimmi Carter Party.

We have the same goals, but look how wrong you were. Carter endorsed Israeli retention of Gush Etzion following his visit.

There is astonishing ignorance even among world leaders about Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria. It is therefore essential to invite influential people to see the reality for themselves - that Judea and Samaria are mostly empty, and that most settlements are suburbs that need not be destroyed to attain peace.
