Jimmy Carter Says Boycotting Israel Is ‘Too Much’

Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday he does not support the leftist-Arab “boycott, divest, sanction” campaign against Israel but added that products made in Judea and Samaria should not carry a “Made in Israel label.”

He told the Associated Press in an interview that he and other “elders,” a group of retired senior leaders, “decided not to publicly endorse any kind of embargo, or so forth, against Israeli invasion, or occupying troops in Palestine.”

“Israeli invasion?”

Not only did her use the phrase, the Associated Press did not have the decency to correct Carter’s perversions of history, For those under the age of 40 and who have never learned anything in the past beyond the Russian invasion of Ukraine, seven Arab countries tied to annihilate Israel in the Six-Day War of 1967. When they failed, they abandoned their second-class Arabs in Judea, Gaza and Samaria. So much for the “invasion.”

But Carter counts himself as pro-Israel because he does not support a boycott.

Thanks for no favors.

  1. The man is such a slimeball. I have been wanting him to drop dead for several decades now.

  2. Israel should make a clean sweep of the muslims and give obama a heart attack. That would kill two birds with one stone.

  3. He need Israel to stay Alive

  4. I would like to apologize to Americans in the other 49 (or is it 57?) states for the anti-Israel peanut farmer from Georgia. We could have sent a better example to the White House.

  15. Yori Mendel says:

    Gee, I wish I had a Shekel, but not by him, or his Arab brothers.

  16. Yori Mendel says:

  21. I am ashamed on behalf of the Christian community to whom I belong too. Too many of 'us' do NOT practise what The Word of G-D clearly teaches: to 'comfort and support' The Apple of His Eye – the Nation of Israel. Please forgive us, if you can find it in yourself – Thank You, B.
