Carter and Obama: ‘He Who Is Merciful to the Cruel Ends Up Cruel to the Merciful’

In a book that shows clearly the parallels between Carter's regime and our current president's, To Hell in a Handbasket, Blum brings not-so-distant-history alive.

It would be great if teachers and professors had the chutzpah to assign this book.  But even if they, like some of our fearless leaders, are too craven to take so aggressive a step as assigning this politically incorrect – although factually correct – book, do yourself and Western Civilization a favor: buy several copies and give them to those you know who want to – and to those who should want to – understand America’s role on the world stage.  Let them know who are the truly bad guys we do, or should, play opposite on that stage.

Ruthie Blum is an American who emigrated to Israel more than thirty years ago.  She was an editor at The Jerusalem Post for more than two decades, and she currently blogs at Israel Hayom.

About the Author: Lori Lowenthal Marcus is the US correspondent for The Jewish Press. She is a recovered lawyer who previously practiced First Amendment law and taught in Philadelphia-area graduate and law schools.

  1. Last chance to vote against licking the boots of Islamo-fascists and a nuclear Iran.

  2. Charlie Hall says:

    Carter is clearly a rasha, and he earned is re-election defeat. But we forget that his hostility towards Israel only became manifest after he left office.

    There is no evidence that Obama shares Carter's views. Why just yesterday the Obama administration approved an additional $4 billion in loan guarantees for Israel. And as I write this the US and Israel are participating in their longest joint military exercise ever.

  3. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    jimbo now makes a very comfortable living extolling the 'virtues' of jihadism, the new incarnation of islam. The Carter "Presidential Library" fought very hard to keep their books private. But under the IRC, as a 'non-profit' they had to open them up. It was not shocking to find out that the main financiers were the saudi royal family, same family that obama got on his knees to and who pay clinton $10million a year to go on speaking tours promoting islam in the US and non-jihadi states.

  4. Ira Tick says:

    Ms. Marcus, are you a historian? Do you or Ms. Blu, have any real training in diplomacy, international studies, defense and strategic studies? Were either of you in the White House or the US Embassy in Tehran in 1980?

    Have you even read about the Iranian Revolution of 1979? Do you have any clue that it was the largest popular revolution in history, and that the United States could not, short of participating in terrorism on a grand scale, have propped up the Shah against 10 million protesters? That you're characterization of events and what Carter should have done is closer to the opinion of the French at Dien Bien Phu, who begged Eisenhower to use nuclear weapons against the Viet Minh?

    Do you know that Carter was the first and only president to officially state that Soviet meddling in the Persian Gulf would be considered an act of war against the US? How about the fact that Israel and Egypt have avoided war for 40 years?

    Why should anyone believe this nonsense?

  5. Liad Bar-el says:

    After going to its home site, I read that this place in which you work, The Beacon, “The Beacon is a publication written by and for Modern Orthodox Jewry, and it is issues regarding that community which will be its focus.” After working in USA Military Psych Ops, I am now convinced that The Beacon’s workers do not live up to this statement but rather publishes false information (aka disinformation) deliberately in order to influence public opinion or obscure the truth. Carter is one big fat lie as is anyone who supports him.

  6. Charlie Hall says:

    I assume that since you resorted to an *ad hominem* attack, you have no argument against Mr. Tick's statement. I therefore have to assume that he is correct.

  7. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    Read Blum's book, which is carefully footnoted, and see if you maintain the position you hold now. Only a fool rants against a book review without reading the book. And my academic credentials stack up beyond any of yours, I have no doubt, so let's not go there, shall we? And, ahem, Mr. Tick, I see that you attend the Azrieli School. Mr. Azrieli wrote the Forward to Blum's book.

  8. Let's get out the vote for Romney , especially in the swing states of VA, Ohio, and Florida.
