Jimmy's Secret Solution

Well, the evidence of Jimmy Carter's anti-semitic attitude is starting to pile up. According to an article in WorldNetDaily, Monroe Freedman, the former executive director of the Holocaust Memorial Council, Carter once complained it consisted of "too many Jews." He also said a noted Holocaust scholar who was a Presbyterian Christian was rejected from the council's board by Carter's office because the scholar's name "sounded too Jewish."

Add to this the recent revelation by The New York Sun that Jimmy interceded on behalf of the Nazi prison guard, Martin Bartesch, and his recent anti-Israel book and Carter's motives start looking mighty suspect.

The chief Nazi hunter and director of the Jerusalem Office of the Simon Weisenthal Center, Efraim Zuroff, told the Sun that "Carter was never particularly sensitive on Jewish issues" and that the news of his appealing on behalf of a former Nazi "doesn't surprise" him. Mr. Zuroff described Mr. Carter's approach as "a classic case of misplaced sympathy syndrome."

That's about as nice as you can say it, but the truth is Carter seems to think there are "too many Jews," and seems to have a pattern of coming to the defense of those who would reduce their number.
