Jimmy Carter Asks Jews' Forgiveness

It's no surprise that former President Jimmy Carter's vitriolic stance toward Israel has won him few Jewish admirers in the United States and elsewhere.

Now Carter is asking for the "forgiveness" of the Jewish community for any "stigma" he has caused Israel.

Carter won the ire of Jews around the world in 2006 with the release of his book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid. Many felt that he was holding Israel solely responsible for the Middle East crisis letting the Palestinians off the hook.

Carter is the worst US President in Modern Times. He has been supported by Arab money for years. He should stick to building houses for the poor and needy, and peanut farming! His asking for forgiveness is suspect to me...why all of a sudden? Maybe some Jewish folk who are Democrats, are starting to question their blind devotion of all things Left!
