Carter is wrong as usual. And as usual he bias against the Jewish State leads him astray.

Someone should slam the peanut farmer and Navy drop-out. This anti-Jew should not be allowed to be so anti-Jewish without backlash from the Jew community. Speak out and stop being so nice to this anti-Israel, anti-Jew and Jew hater.

A vote for Obama is a validation of Carter. American Jews have been given an opportunity to express their disdain for Israel. Make your vote count for something.

    Xwing22 says:

    How is a vote for Obama a validation of Carter? Because both are Democrats that you don’t like?

The guy managed to sit out WW2

Xwing22 says:

Disagreeing with Jimmy Carter’s activities regarding Middle East politics is fine. But calling him anti-Jewish, anti-Semetic, or anti-Israel makes you sound ignorant and uninformed, especially in light of the peace that he helped negotiate 30 years ago that lasts to this day.

Hershl says:

Carter is so anti-Israel that it is hard to outdo him.

Of course he sides with trash like Rachel Corrie who is burning in hell for her treason.

B Rister says:

My biggest regret as a life long Democrat is voting for the anti-Semite, Jimmy Carter, instead of voting for Gerald Ford.
The so-called Peace Treaty at Camp David was nothing but a give away to the Arabs and Carter’s disdain for Begin was evident and shameful. Carter has never failed to criticize Israel over the course of his career.
President Obama has been a strong supporter of Israel despite the attempts of the right ing to portray him otherwise.
Go Obama!

    I like your endin ‘GO OBAMA The sooner, the better for USA and Israel. You obviously do not see the wood for the trees. Obama is trying to push Israel under the bus. He is no friend of Israel. He put PM Netanyahu ina spot, by telling him to start negotiations with the 1967 lines as the staring point. Does he really believe that Arafat in a suit, Abbas, would not make the damends that israel pull back to 1967, which was never a PA line. Jordan occupied the terrirtory in 1948, It was never given to Jordan. If the Arabs wanted a PA state, they had every chance since 1948 to 1967. Why did they not decalre a state theN?

Poupic says:

How did Carter hide his feelings about Jews so well that I, a survivor of the Shoa who would never vote for an anti- Semite knowingly for any reason; I voted twice for this flaming anti- Semite. Of course I did not vote for Obama in 2008 my dream of one day voting for him was shattered when I discovered his true being, his core values finding that his spiritual mentor, no less was Wright for 20 years. He even helped Farrakhan with his Million Men March when every American saw multitudes cheering wildly every anti- Semitic rant of Farrakhan. And still US Jews will vote for anti- Semite Obama in November. I will vote to replace Obama by voting for Romney. All that is also important to me and most Jews will be fought for the day Romney is elected. Women’s right to control their own body, Universal health care, education… But first, we have to get rid of this anti- Semite who has screwed the whole Middle East up beside not having created enough jobs for Americans.

PETER SM says:

Carter would obviously side with a burqa wearing, US flag burning, human shield for Hamas arms smugglers in a war zone.

I wish Carter will more actively participate in Obama’s election campaign, it would be the kiss of death … Carter is completely irrelevant, he should go into an old age home and keep his dribble to himself.
