I've talked here before about the distrust many American (and Israeli) Jews still feel regarding Christians. After their history in Europe, it's no wonder this is the case. But as some authors have so eloquently written, that fear is misplaced. The new threat in America comes from liberal ranks themselves for various nefarious reasons.
But there is still one so-called Christian Jews should look out for and he is, no big surprise, perhaps the most Leftist of Leftists these days. He is a former President. And his recent book reveals his antisemitism for all to see (and the leftists LOVE! it). Jeffery Goldberg discusses former President Carter's perspective:
Why is Carter so hard on Israeli settlements and so easy on Arab aggression and Palestinian terror? Because a specific agenda appears to be at work here. Carter seems to mean for this book to convince American evangelicals to reconsider their support for Israel. Evangelical Christians have become bedrock supporters of Israel lately, and Carter marshals many arguments, most of them specious, to scare them out of their position. Hence the Golda Meir story, seemingly meant to show that Israel is not the God-fearing nation that religious Christians believe it to be. And then there are the accusations, unsupported by actual evidence, that Israel persecutes its Christian citizens. On his fateful first visit to Israel, Carter takes a tour of the Galilee and writes, "It was especially interesting to visit with some of the few surviving Samaritans, who complained to us that their holy sites and culture were not being respected by Israeli authorities -- the same complaint heard by Jesus and his disciples almost two thousand years earlier."Carter is a classic Southern Red-Neck bigot throw-back. He hardly represents todays evangelical Christians or the Baptists. The man calls himself Christian while spewing sentiments that would find a comfortable home in any Islamic extremist group. Why, his sentiments would be comfortable with the Third Reich's members. And the Left calls Bush Hitler. That, I would call classic projection.
