The Peanut Farmer Speaks
Former US president Jimmy Carter unleashed a fierce attack against the Israeli and American governments in his speech at the Geneva Accord ceremony here.
He blamed US President George W. Bush for anti-American sentiment and worldwide terrorism.
"The present administration in Washington has been invariably supportive of Israel, and the well-being of the Palestinian people has been ignored or relegated to secondary importance," he said.
"Without a resurrection of strong and unbiased American influence, Israeli and Palestinian extremists will prevail.
"There is no doubt that the lack of real effort to resolve the Palestinian issue is a primary source of anti-American sentiment throughout the Middle East and a major incentive for terrorist activity."
Some pearls of wisdom from the man who brought you stagflation and the Iranian Revolution. I love listening to officious, arrogant, morally bankrupt lies from the man who's cowardly and amoral foreign policy led to the first real victory for revolutionary Islamic fundamentalism and the establishment of a psychotic theocracy which is now a year from a nuclear weapon. Maybe being the single worst president of the 20th century has made his ego so weak that he feels the need to lash out in pathetic and sladerous fashion at his own country in a time of war and one of its strongest allies, which has been the victim of one of the most deadly and sustained terrorist campaigns in history. I don't know about you, but I am personally horrified that this Chomskyite slimeball was once president of the United States. Thank God for Ronald Reagan, that's all I can say.
