Jimmy Carter’s reputation as one of the most consistent supporters of Israel’s terrorist opponents remains intact with the publication of his “Support the Palestinian unity government” op-ed in The Washington Post.

In his 2006 book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid Carter cemented his place in history as one of the most vicious critics of Israeli policy. He has been one leading voices in support of the formation of an Islamic state in the Land of Israel since the 1970s.

Let’s take a moment and recall one part in the history in the Middle East that Carter rarely brings up.

On Wednesday, Khaled Meshal of Hamas and Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah came together in Cairo and publicly signed a historic reconciliation agreement, in front of a room filed with supporters from the Arab world and the international community.

Didn’t they?

Actually, they didn’t.

Perhaps the most damaging blow to Middle East peace in recent history is the Hamas/Fatah “unity deal” announced by both terrorist parties.  Fatah, run by PA President Mahmoud Abbas tries to project a respectable image to the non-Muslim world this leads them to tone down the terrorist activity a bit and even try to negotiate with Israel every once in a while.  Peace has never been an objective of Fatah–just the appearance of wanting peace so the terrorist group can remain the favorite-child of liberal governments, including ours.

Hamas throws up no smokescreens about its objectives–a worldwide caliphate and the destruction of Israel as the Jewish state. By all accounts Hamas will be the more powerful force in this arrangement.  Almost immediately after the deal was announced,  Hamas representatives..

…emphasized that the new unity agreement, reached on Wednesday, did not require them to accept the two-state solution or to engage in peace talks with Israel.

They also stressed that the interim unity government that was expected to be established soon would not conduct peace negotiations with Israel.

Even the “moderate” PA President Abbas admitted that peace was no longer a goal. On May 3rd he said to the  the Al-Aharam newspaper:

“There is no need to demand that Hamas recognize Israel. The PA will not request that it do so.”

Why should Abbas demand Hamas recognize Israel as the Jewish homeland when his own Fatah party doesn’t?  By any measure, this deal is a danger to peace, the U.S. interests in the area, and our ally Israel.

Growing up we all believe what we want to. For years my son believed that there were monsters under his bed at night, my daughter believed that a unicorn would show up for her to ride away.  Both of them believed in the tooth fairy (there was one of those, but it was just me in a costume). Part of the growing process is that we realize that these are just myths.


Surprisingly there is one childish myth that many otherwise intelligent adults cling on to. That’s the myth that the Fatah party, run by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, is moderate. People ignore what Abbas’ party says and does so they can believe the unbelievable–that he is a moderate. Sadly, they are just being unreasonable and immature. Let me suggest you are more likely to look up into the winter sky and see a fat guy with a red coat and white beard on a sled being pulled by flying reindeer, than see a truly moderate member of the Fatah party.

Max Blumenthal uses the assassination of Osama Bin Laden as an excuse to push the ridiculous claim, advanced by Israel-haters for years,  that Binyamin Netanyahu was overjoyed at the events of 9/11.

Blumenthal says that Netanyahu called the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon “very good.” But what he glosses over is the question he was answering. From the New York Times, September 12, 2001:

Asked tonight what the attack meant for relations between the United States and Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, the former prime minister, replied, ”It’s very good.” Then he edited himself: ”Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy.” He predicted that the attack would ”strengthen the bond between our two peoples, because we’ve experienced terror over so many decades, but the United States has now experienced a massive hemorrhaging of terror.”

The question was specifically about US-Israeli relations, not about what he thought of the terror attacks. Netanyahu answered accurately and then immediately realized that this obvious truth could be twisted by people with an agenda–like Blumenthal–so he clarified what he meant.

Blumenthal, like all Israel-bashers who suffer from terminal intellectual dishonesty, ignored the context of the comment.
