Jimmy Carter redeemed?

From the American Spectator:
For over thirty years a wounded Jimmy Carter has roamed the world speaking ill of whomever the sitting president might be and occasionally making it difficult for that president to make policy. Obama has already surpassed him, speaking ill of America as a whole while being president. In Strasbourg, France, on April 3, 2009, he said, "Instead of celebrating our dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive." What he will do in retirement one can only imagine. But until his retirement, enjoy the show.
But is Obama the most anti-Israel President ever? I think he is. Most of Carter's really vile treatment of Israel happened after he left office. He wasn't pro-Israel, but I don't recall him being quite as blatantly confrontational as Obama is (although Yehuda Avner describes both Yitzchak Rabin and Menachem Begin as finding Carter difficult).

Read the whole thing.
