The Foreign Ministry reportedly recommended that Rivlin and Netanyahu not meet with Carter because of what they termed his “anti-Israeli stance” over the last few years, particularly during the summertime war in Gaza.
That is the kind report because Jimmy Carter is not just anti-Israel but he is a raging anti-Semite.
For example liberal Alan Dershowitz feels that Carter is a Jew Hater,
The entire premise of his criticism of Jewish influence
on American foreign policy is that money talks. It is Carter, not me,
who has made the point that if politicians receive money from Jewish
sources, then they are not free to decide issues regarding the Middle
East for themselves. It is Carter, not me, who has argued that
distinguished reporters cannot honestly report on the Middle East
because they are being paid by Jewish money. So, by Carter’s own
standards, it would be almost economically “suicidal” for Carter “to
espouse a balanced position between Israel and Palestine.”
(…) If money determines political and public views as Carter insists
“Jewish money” does, Carter’s views on the Middle East must be deemed to
have been influenced by the vast sums of Arab money he has received. If
he who pays the piper calls the tune, then Carter’s off-key tunes have
been called by his Saudi Arabian paymasters. It pains me to say this,
but I now believe that there is no person in American public life today
who has a lower ratio of real to apparent integrity than Jimmy Carter.
Ambassador Marc Ginsburg was Jimmy Carter’s deputy senior adviser on the
Middle East, and from 1977 through 1980 was White House liaison to the
State Department. He has a unique perspective of Jimmy Carter’s Middle
East dealings. According to the Ambassador,
the reason that the Peanut President goes out of his way to bash Israel
is that he feels American Jews did not kiss his butt enough for all
that he did for Israel.
…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.
Carter even rejected someone for a position on the board of the Holocaust Memorial Council because the guy’s name was too Jewish:
William Bradford Smith, Chair of the Division of History, Politics &
International Studies at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta once sent a letter to the Jewish Exponent in Philadelphia which said in part:
Carter’s hatred of Israel and, by extension, of all Jews (and make
no mistake, if you spend any time in the man’s presence, his discomfort
at being in the same room with someone who merely appears to be Jewish
is palpable), is rooted in the man’s megalomania, and his unflinching belief in his own rectitude.
I think the reports in the Israeli media were being too kind when discussing the former President the man is not just anti-Israel but he harbors a deeper more intense hatred, a hatred of all Jew.
