      If Only

      I was informed that someone has been playing around with a photoshop program, and its way past Purim.

      But I felt that my Arutz 7 blog faithful deserved a smile if not an outright laugh.  The story is here but enjoy this picture of former President Jimmy Carter been arrested on suspicion of aiding terrorists:


      Bob Maginnis thinks Carter is arrestable.

      Carter’s proposed meeting will also violate part of the USA Patriot Act of 2001 which prohibits any US citizen from knowingly providing “…material support or resources” to a foreign terrorist organization (18 U.S.C. § 2339A(b)). The phrase “material support or resources” includes “expert advice” which is what former presidents provide. A citizen found guilty of violating this law could be imprisoned for life.
