Jimmy Carter Backs Abbas’ Appeal to the UN

Carter still wears blinders that make him see that everything that Abbas does is for peace.

Jimmy Carter in front of the Israeli flag, which proves that he knows how to be photographed.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter insisted Monday that Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s decision to ask for membership in international associations of the United Nations actually will help the “peace process.”

It takes a bit of a twisted imagination to follow the man’s mind. Such as it is, but here is what he said in a statement in the name of the “Elders,” a group of bored and boring world leaders who have decided they can promote peace in the world that they helped botch.

“The decision by the Palestinians to exercise their right to join international organizations should not be seen as a blow to the peace talks,” Carter said . “I hope that, on the contrary, it will help to redress the power imbalance between Israelis and Palestinians, as we approach the 29 April deadline set by Secretary Kerry.”

When Carter says “imbalance,” he means Abbas’ not having the upper hand. A “balance” of power means that Israel is under the bus.

In order to make that happen, Carter and the Elders ignored the fact the Abbas totally broke the rules of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s Peace Talks Follies when he said he would turn to the United Nations.

What really happened, according to Carter, is that decision to ask to join 12 U.N. treaties and conventions was “consistent with the UN non-member observer state status obtained by Palestine in November 2012.”

Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Prime Minister of Norway and deputy chair of The Elders, added, “This move opens the way to more inclusive and accountable government in the West Bank and Gaza. It has the potential to strengthen respect for human rights and provide ordinary Palestinians with essential legal protections against discrimination or abuses by their own government.”

He thinks that the poor Arab on the street in Ramallah will benefit from the Palestinian Authority’s being a member of the organization for the rights of children, for example.  Does the distinguished former prime minister of Norway know that Iran and Saudi Arabia are member of Convention on the Rights of the Child?

Has the United Nations Convention against Corruption, which Abbas wants to join, helped the man on the street in Argentina, Angola, Egypt, Iran,, Libya, and Sudan, some of the most comport countries in the world who are members of the enlightened committee?

But none of this is important, because Carter said it is all going to help the peace process.

    this may come as a surprise to you but carter is no longer president, has little influence over anything at all, and is entitled to his own opinions. it may be helpful if you were to make relevant comments……

  2. HE KEEP ON MAKING MISTAKE AFTER ANOTHER,,SUPPORTING BROTHER HOOD,LED USA,LOST EGYPT,SUDAN,,

  3. Carter was a worthless president, had little influence over anybody and sticks his foot in his mouth too often.

  4. Jim Little says:

    What a joke,,,,,DAMN

  5. He has a propensity of choosing the wrong side.

  6. Carter is in a bind and is afraid of Abbas! Abbas does not want peace !if he
    Does it will be only on his
    Terms !!

  7. still a waste of space on the page. JACKASS personified. Lousy president. loust PERSON. Anti Israel forever. He is owned by arab oil. and had no morals or scruples. everyone knows until now he was top billed as the worst president in history

  8. Who the hell cares what this Loser says??!?

  9. Jimmy carter, Barack Obama…both anti Semites. What can you expect from this southern peckerwood cracker. His own mother was quoted as saying “I should have remained single,” after thinking about the two sons she spawned.

  10. Jean Kinney says:

    CARTER IS A STUPID IDIOT FARMER

  11. No wonder he is Press Tv’s right hand man.

  12. Yori Mendel says:

    Mr. Peanut is a Spellbinder. He is the Cause of most of the Evil caused by the Palestinians, not it’s support. Blame him, every time They murder. Or blow up a vehicle. He and Tutu are Revolutionaries of Communism.

  13. He makes my skin crawl.

  14. Cris Burns says:

    the greatest USA president ever…

  15. Apart from the fact that he does not realize he is no longer president, he was the worst president we’ve ever had and we voted him OUT and did not want to hear from him again. He is an anti Semite and full of himself. He should just keep his mouth shut and choke on his own cr-p. Jimmy Carter Please, have enough shame to just disappear from public, no one wants you.

  16. John Wayne says:

    he is a screw ball

  17. John Newman says:

    I assume that he is an antisemite. I learnt the Arab mentality when I was first in Israel. They will not take no for an answer and will follow you until they can make a sale. This presumably also applies to politics.

  18. Carter is, with Obama, probably the worst President in the past century or more.The anti-Semitic wimp and shill for the Arabs let Iran dump all over us in 1979 when he let them hold and torture our diplomatic corps in Tehran without doing a thing. They were held prisoner and mistreated for 444 days until the day Reagan was sworn in as President and the Iranians knew what would happen if they were not released. Had he bombed that sh–hole to bits the Iranian problem today would not exist. I remember a Soviet diplomat telling a reporter that if that was the Soviet embassy they seized against all international law and did not release the prisoners unharmed, Tehran would no longer exist. He is now a senile ex-peanut farmer with his head up where the “sun don’t shine”.

  19. So wise they became fools!!!

  20. Carter has always despised Israel.

  21. he donot like us . שיגיד מה שהוא רוצה .

  22. The only thing missing about Carter is his need to be certified as an idiot and an Antisemite. As far as I’m concerned he can drop dead, do not pass go, and go straight to hell.

  23. Al Braun says:

    ימח שמו !

  24. Dean Petree says:

    Another inept liberal dud.

  25. Jimmy, PLEASE stay home and shut UP! you seem just as willing to throw Israel under the bus as Obama. You still trying to hold on to your decreasing lead as history’s worst president?

  26. No discernment or common sense!!

  27. Les Martin says:

    peaNUTS….! still a yiddified mamzer.!

    Mr. Carter, a mystery on his real motive, but certainly very naive if he thinks that Palestinian joining dysfunctional and politicised UN may help a peace process between Arabs and Israel.

    Carter is an Assad apologist.
    Just like in the 80s after Assad Sr killed 20,000 of his own people in 82, Carter was an apologist of Assad Sr. Now we find out, he's also an apologist of Assad Jr
    Its not looking to good for Carter with Assad murdering 100,000 of his own people to maintain the 44 year old Assad dictatorship in Syria.

    Assad’s Emails Hacked: Jimmy Carter Embraced Syria Regime before Obama [incl. David Lesch]

    Jimmy Carter called Hafez Assad "a close personal friend" soon after 1982 Hama massacre
    April 9, 2013
    In February, 1982, Syria's president Hafez al-Assad murdered between 30-40,000 people in the city of Hama.

    A year later, in March 1983, Jimmy Carter referred to the mass murderer as "a close personal friend" who he has a "special relationship" with. He expressed the hope that if Assad would come to the negotiating table, he could be on the same side as the Egyptians, Palestinians, Jordanians, and Americans in pressuring – Israel.

    All of this was recorded in New York Magazine, June 6, 1983, and verified by Carter's friend and advisor, Kenneth Stein, who would later famously break with Carter over the lies he wrote in his 2006 book.

    Jimmy Carter quotes fake Mandela latter to prove Israeli “apartheid”

    From South Africa’s Business Today:
    IS ISRAEL an apartheid state? Apparently Nelson Mandela thinks so. In a recent letter to New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, Mandela lays out the case against Israel with unusual candour. Mandela’s words are now being quoted all over the world. Last month, former US president Jimmy Carter cited the letter in a speech at Brandeis University. And who’s going to argue with Madiba?

    Unfortunately for Israel’s critics, the letter is a hoax. It is the creation of a man named Arjan El Fassed, who runs an anti-Israel website called The Electronic Intifada. El-Fassad has admitted that he made the whole thing up, but the Mandela letter has now entered the anti-Israel canon alongside countless other fictions. Yet, much like the Israel-apartheid comparison itself, it is completely spurious.
    Read the whole thing.

    While it appears that Fassed did not push this hoax, it shows volumes about Jimmy Carter’s devotion to truth that he quotes a fake letter that would only exist on anti-Israel websites.

  124. Corey Multer says:

    Carter was a joke as a president, and ever since he got run out of office he's shown himself to be a downright lowlife. A stupid, anti-Semitic, ****-for-brains moron. Anyone who's still listening to anything this nitwit has to say should have his own head examined.
