A Really Not Acceptable Apology

Jimmy Carter, contrite, has sent the JTA an apology for his words about Israel.

He wrote:

we must not permit criticisms for improvement to stigmatize Israel. As I would have noted at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, but which is appropriate at any time of the year, I offer an Al Het for any words or deeds of mine that may have done s


Hey, Jimmy, you lost an assistant, were demonstrated against and had public criticism of you, your writings and much more plastered all over the place.

You knew your words stigmatized Israel, presented a wrong image and degraded Jewish nationalism. Words like these.

Remember this caricature?

Even Chavez quoted you.


For this though, you get a Chanukah latke:

Carter said that the settlement bloc would remain under Israeli control.

"This particular settlement area is not one that I can envision ever being abandoned or changed over into Palestinian territory. This is part of settlements close to the 1967 (border) line that I think will be here for ever," he said in the garden of Goldstein's house.


I'd love to know which renegade Jew taught him that Al Chet bit.

Yes, what yoni said.

Debbie Schlussel comments on that.

Carter is a putz (and that's probably being way too kind).
