On November 28, former US president Jimmy Carter in an Op-Ed, entitled, America Must Recognize Palestine, at The Jew York Times urged president Barack Hussein Obama to recognize a demilitarized Palestinian state before the end of his term on January 20, 2017.
“I am convinced that the United States can still shape the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before a change in presidents, but time is very short. The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on Jan. 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine, as 137 countries have already done, and help it achieve full United Nations membership,” Jimmy Carter said.
I wonder how Carter expects Obama to pull that miracle when he himself had stated several times in the past that a Palestinian state would never become a reality as long as Netanyahu is in power. That criminal and terrorist person will still be in power during the anti-Muslim Donald Trump administration.
Carter fears that the coming Trump administration will give a green-light to Netanyahu’s dream of a single Israel state over the entire historic Palestine by annexing the West Bank and new wars to re-occupy the Gaza Strip.
“This process is hastening a one-state reality that could destroy Israeli democracy and will result in intensifying international condemnation of Israel,” warned Carter.
Carter’s paradox is that he calls the Zionist entity, a democratic state, while admitting that “over 4.5 million Palestinians live in Israeli occupied territories, but are not citizens of Israel. Most live largely under Israeli military rule, and do not vote in Israel’s national elections.”
Carter also claimed that Washington’s recognition of a “demilitarized Palestinian state over Palestinian territories occupied by Israel in 1967 would lead the way for other countries to do the same.” So far, 137 out of 193 UN member states have recognized an independent Palestinian state next to the Zionist entity over 22% of the historic Palestine.
Carter also claimed that Washington’s recognition would give a booster to the so-called “moderate Palestinian leadership” such as Shimon Peres’ Palestinian Gandhi Mahmoud Abbas, the Israel’s Viceroy in the West Bank.
Jimmy Carter, as US president played the midwife for the so-called Camp David Accord in September 1978 – a handshake between the Belarus-born Menachem Begin, commander of Jewish terrorist militia IRGUN, and Arab traitor, Egyptian president Anwar Sadat. Since then, Israel has been receiving $3 billion, and Egypt $1.3 billion annual military aid from the United States. Kingdom of Jordan joined the club in 1994 to continue receiving $350 million UDAID per year.
Commenting on Carter’s Op-Ed, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (Observer, November 29), author of Kosher Sex, called Jimmy Carter morally corrupt and a friend of Palestinian Islamic resistance Hamas that has never endorsed Abbas’ policies. Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is the publisher of the Observer.
