Recently, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter once again has managed to put himself in the spotlight of media attention after making some interesting comments about Palestine and other issues. View points of Mr. Jimmy Carter on Palestinian election in particular, drew my attention in which Mr. Carter complained about Palestinian people being penalized for democratically electing Hamas to represent them in Palestinian government. Mr. Carter complained that Palestinians should not be punished because of this democratic election which he insisted, was in fact in direction of spread of democracy in the region.

Believing that Hamas was elected by Palestinian people in a truly democratic process is one thing but spreading of democracy in the region is something else. One important specification of a democracy is to work with harmony with the rest of the world while protecting its constituents and serving their interests. Making a bad selection by constituents which happens everyday and in every corner of “democratic world” is nothing out of ordinary in an environment which true foundations of democracy are easily manipulated or non existent. If Palestinian people made an informed decision to elect Hamas as their representative then, like any other democratic society, they should live with the consequences of their own decision. Why the rest of the world should accept and respect a group of known terrorists because they were “elected democratically” to represent a people?

Germans elected Hitler as their leader and dictator in multiple “democratic elections” in 1930’s but that did not stop other nations to get rid of him when conditions became unbearable. This is a very clear example that a party or group in any nation which has no respect for accepted values by the rest of the world should not receive automatic acceptance by others just based on being “democratically elected”. In democratic world when a party wins a democratic election and fails to deliver the campaign promises, the consequences will be for the whole people in that society which made that choice. As a result those people, if wise enough, may decide to go with more realistic options next time. It is obvious that, depending on the situation, the resulting effects of mistakes made by a society may vary as far as magnitude and in some cases, those mistakes, could have an impact on the whole humanity.

Disastrous policies of former President Carter towards an allied nation during 1970’s resulted in the rise of a fundamentalist Islamic ideology from which world may suffer for a very long time to come. Regardless of the reasons which Mr. Jimmy Carter might have had to justify his behavior at that time, the rise of another group of fundamentalists which uses terrorism as a tool to achieve objectives in Middle East, can only be described as an indirect result of his actions at the time of his presidency. Hamas and almost any other terrorist groups in the Middle East and the rest of the world are on pay list of Islamic Republic regime in Iran which has its hands on a vast amount of wealth enough to manipulate the money hungry politicians of the world to implement their plans.

Rise of Hezbollah in Lebanon and another group in Iraq armed with Shiite radicalism could never be possible without backing of Islamic Republic regime in Iran. Use of terrorism as a tool to intimidate others combined with huge amounts of money generously distributed among terrorist groups has put Islamic regime of Iran into a position which United States and others are now considering getting into negotiation with them! This is a clear indication of seriousness of situation. There is no question that Islamists have been working for a long time since more than a hundred years ago to find a way into governing of Islamic nations but, if it was not for incompetent policies of President Carter, they would never be as close as they are now to domination of at least a certain portion of the world.

Mr. Carter’s wrong policies, has put the world on a roller coaster path in which events like 9/11 may look like a picnic one day! Mr. Carter should stop meddling with affairs which he does not know about just to promote a book full of political correctness that he published to sell and serve his own pocket only.

Jimmy Carter: A Weak, Ineffectual President And An Embarrassing And Dishonest Ex-President

By Rev. Louis P. Sheldon
Chairman, Traditional Values Coalition

January 16, 2007 - If historians accurately describe the record of ex-President Jimmy Carter, they will be forced to conclude that Carter was probably the worst President in America’s history.

Why? A bit of history is in order. Those old enough to remember Carter’s four dismal years in the White House should recall that it was Carter who withdrew American support for the pro-Western Shah of Iran for his alleged “human rights” violations.

As a result of Carter’s withdrawal of support from the Shah, the pro-Western nation fell into the hands of the radical Islamist Ayatollah Khomeini, who promptly murdered more than 20,000 pro-Western Iranians by firing squad. Iran became a stronghold for Islamists and destabilized the entire Middle East.

One of Khomeini’s henchmen at the time is now the current President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. In 1979, Ahmadinejad was a rabid college student who helped organize the storming of the American Embassy on November 4. He was joined in this attack by 400 Iranians wielding sticks and chains. They invaded the embassy in Tehran and held the embassy personnel until January 1981. Ahmadinejad served as a liaison between the hostage-takers and Ali Khamenei, who currently serves as Iran’s Supreme (spiritual) Leader.

By subverting the pro-Western Shah, Jimmy Carter gave us Islamic radicalism in Iran – and a dangerous nuclear threat. Within a year after Khomeini seized power in Iran, it was at war with Iraq. More than 500,000 died in this war. These people died because of Carter’s personal weakness and his outright subversion of the Shah.

In addition, the Soviet Union recognized the weakness of Carter and invaded Afghanistan. In an attempt to protect the Afghans from Soviet oppression, America helped the Mullahs fight back. One of those Muslim leaders was Osama Bin Laden. Carter can be indirectly linked to the empowerment of Bin Laden in Afghanistan and the spread of the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

Now, the ex-President is in the news again. This time it’s about his anti-Israel book, probable plagiarism and the resignation of 14 Carter Center leaders over his pro-Islamic terrorist comments. They have resigned over concern about lies and distortions in his book. In addition, former Ambassador Dennis Ross is also concerned that Carter ripped off maps that he had created and never credited him in the book. Ross is calling for a correction and attribution.

The 14 Carter Center officials who resigned sent a joint letter to Carter. In it, they said: “We can no longer endorse your strident and uncompromising position. This is not the Carter Center or the Jimmy Carter we came to respect and support.”

But, wait. There’s more! Not only is Carter in the news over his anti-Israel, pro-Islamist screed, but he and Bill Clinton have decided to create a broad and “inclusive” Baptist movement to overcome what they see as a negative image of Baptists. Carter and Clinton announced their new project at the Carter Center on January 9.

They claim they want a Baptist movement that is more concerned about the environment and global conflicts. Jimmy Carter should know about global conflicts. He helped foment several wars while President. And perhaps Bill Clinton wishes to create an inclusive Ten Commandments that does away with such negative commands as “do not commit adultery,” and “do not lie.”

Carter and Clinton are the perfect pair for subverting Baptists because both of them have difficulty telling the truth. The world would be better off if both of them kept their mouths shut, but this is unlikely to happen. Both are ego-driven and can’t stand to be out of the limelight—even if it’s negative publicity.

I’m afraid we’re going to be enduring their underhanded activities for years to come. Let’s pray that they fail in all of their efforts.
