Former US President Jimmy Carter is back again in Israel, along with his “Committee of Elders”, once again lashing out at Israel, after Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Rivlin’s refusal to meet with him.

According to Carter, "The [Elders Group] stands for peace and human rights, and if human rights and peace are not on Netanyahu's agenda, I understand why he does not want to meet us,"

Carter expressed his sadness that the “two state solution” and “land for peace” seem to be increasingly out of favor with Israel’s elected leadership, while warmly praising the authoritarian, terrorist leadership of the Palestinian Authority. He called for an “end to occupation and settlement expansion”; speaking of course about those problematic Jews who merely want to live in the historic biblical heartland of Israel.

What is the biblical heartland, you ask, Jimmy? Remember your beloved Bible? The Book of books that you once held dear as you were running for President the first time? It’s the same Bible that talks about the regions of Samaria (north of Jerusalem) and Judea, (south of Jerusalem), the areas that you insist on calling by the fictional, non-historical, non-biblical term, the West Bank. Have you ever read about a place called the West Bank in your Bible, Jimmy?

If Carter was ignorant of both Bible and history, we could certainly dialogue with him, but I can’t believe that a former leader of the free world and a self-proclaimed Christian (not Catholic) can be so ignorant of his Bible, unless he believes in the ridiculous, albeit hateful Replacement Theology that claims that “the Church” has replaced the Jews as God’s chosen people. As has become well-known, much of the Christian world, led by North American Christians, is very supportive of Israel, but this “theology” of hatred combined with ignorance has been adopted by a lesser-known part of the Christian world as their pathetic religious justification for opposing the Jewish State.

Jimmy Carter, for all of his professed sincerity coupled with his infamous smile, is a charlatan, a hater of Israel, or a combination thereof. Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Rivlin were correct in not meeting with him, nor with his self-proclaimed “Committee of Elders”.
