On Jimmy Carter's Visit To Gush Etzion

An op-ed by my friend, Toby, a Gush Etzion resident, on Jimmy as a modern Bil'am*:

Jimmy Carter, an unwilling Bilaam

And I fully identify with this:

One man wrote, after the visit, "I've always said that we should reach out and provide hospitality to VIPs, diplomats and reporters."


Numbers 22-24

Speaking of Bilaam.

Remember that the Pharaoh of the oppression was Melol, and we replaced the "L's" with "R's" thereby calling him Maror (bitter) because of his cruel treatment of us? Well, have you noticed what happens if you do that to the "BARACK" of Barack Hussein Obama? That's right, It comes out Balak (dropping the c doesn't affect the pronounciation).

So, now we have a foreigner (he's still not released is Certificate of Birth, and all indications are if he did it would show that he, like Balak, is not a native of the land) ruling America, and his agent Carter, a raving anti-Semite to rival Bilaam in his hate.

What makes them think that the peanut farmer is "unwilling" to harm Israel, anyway?

As we approach the month of Av, there's something that I'm reminded of and that bothers me. So, let me share it with you. It's that Mr. Obama's entrance to the national stage was on July 27, 2004. That was the 9th of Av, 5764. I.e., it was Tisha B'Av.

When Kerry and Edwards weren't elected, I heaved a (small) sigh of relief, even though Bush turned out to be a lukewarm friend at best, because I thought we had "dodged a bullet." Little did I realize that they were only the side-show, and that the main attraction was what then appeared to be just a distraction.
