Jimmah says so — ad infinitum, ad nauseam — but then he’s a paid shill and Momma always said to follow the money [I forgot her advice when I met the Baron. He just turned my head… but that’s another story].
That fat wad o’ cash in Jimmah’s pants has got petroleum all over it. Maybe that’s why he sounds so darn oily.
Here’s a Live Leak video on the subject via Pajamas Media:
According to an editorial from Investor’s Daily, our JC has a bit of an ethics problem:
Jimmy Carter says he’s just being fair-minded by continuously condemning Israel. Meanwhile, his Carter Center draws ever more money from anti-Israel sources. Follow the money.
(Evidently their mommas agree with mine on that one.)
The ex-president’s irritating opinions on Mideast matters are one thing. But the funding of his Atlanta think tank by big-money, state-linked Arab sources is quite another — and points to a conflict of interest.
According to the Carter Center Web site’s 2004-05 annual report — the most recent available — the center has received “in excess of $1 million” from characters like Prince Al-Walid bin Talal.
Bin Talal, you might recall, is the Saudi prince who insultingly offered $20 million to New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani in the smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center. The cash was held out not because the prince cared about terrorism but to rub in that the attack was really a byproduct of the Palestine conflict.
The streetwise Giuliani, who once threw Yasser Arafat out of a New York theater, wasn’t fooled by bin Talal’s power play and told him to keep his dirty money to himself. Giuliani smelled the quid pro quo and wasn’t a man who could be bought.
Seems like Jimmah can’t smell at all. As the Investor’s Daily puts it:
Carter looks a little different. His new book, “Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid” lays all the blame on Israel for the Palestinian conflict in an interpretation worthy of a Cairo coffee shop. It is so extreme — and so seemingly out of character — that a top staffer at the Carter Center resigned in disgust.

It may be easy to dismiss Carter’s nutty statements about Israel as the ranting of a bitter man in his twilight years. But it’s not so easy to look the other way as Arab cash flows into the Carter Center from people known to demand something in return. It is worth noting that the center’s anticipated contributions receivable and Carter’s anti-Israeli diatribes have both increased dramatically.
Investor’s Daily calls it “Jimmy Carter’s Li’l Ol’ Stink Tank” – in other words it’s the smell of petro-dollars, not sulphur, which surrounds our Peace President.
So who is it that suffers from apartheid? James and his brain, you say?
No wonder Miss Lillian said she wished she hadn’t had children. See, she knew him and Billy better than we did.
