Skip to comments.[ November 28, 2016] Jimmy Carter: America Must Recognize Palestine
Posted on 12/29/2016 1:34:48 PM PST by Fedora
We do not yet know the policy of the next administration toward Israel and Palestine, but we do know the policy of this administration. . .I am convinced that the United States can still shape the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before a change in presidents, but time is very short. The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on Jan. 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine, as 137 countries have already done, and help it achieve full United Nations membership. . .

Between 1976-1977, the Carter family peanut business received a bailout in the form of a $4.6 million, poorly managed and highly irregular loan from the National Bank of Georgia (NBG). According to a July 29, 1980 Jack Anderson expose in The Washington Post, the banks biggest borrower was Mr. Carter, and its chairman at that time was Mr. Carters confidant, and later his director of the Office of Management and Budget, Bert Lance.
At that time, Mr. Lances mismanagement of the NBG got him and the bank into trouble. Agha Hasan Abedi, the Pakistani founder of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), known as the bank which would bribe God, came to Mr. Lances rescue making him a $100,000-a-year consultant. Abedi then declared: we would never talk about exploiting his relationship with the president. Next, he introduced Mr. Lance to Saudi billionaire Gaith Pharaon, who fronted for BCCI and the Saudi royal family. In January 1978, Abedi paid off Mr. Lances $3.5 million debt to the NBG, and Pharaon secretly gained control over the bank. . .
The formatting on this looks funky on my screen—is it like that for other people?
Now it looks normal after refreshing the page.
America Must Recognize Palestine....for the fictitious creation that it is.
It’s time for Jimmy to retire to the big dog house in the sky.
Because the Palestinians have proven to be peaceful, tolerant people.
I recognize Palestine. Most people call it Jordan.
First of all, what are the boundaries of this imaginary state?
Second, Palestinian leaders say they will not accept Israel as a “religious” state.
What say you now, old man Carter?
We’re still waiting for Jimmy to recognize Israel.
Historically, there was never a Palestine, there was Israel for some 1500 years until the Romans enslaved them and the lies of leftist history begin there.
2016 isn’t over yet!
Jimmy Carter can’t stand to lose his title to Obama: “Worst president ever.”
Yeah, Jimmy Carter- Middle East expert extraordinaire.
Hey, Jimmah, how about your so called palis recognizing Israel?
It’ll never happen, will it?
(might wanna proof your tag ;-)
There is no such thing as “palestine”.
Palestine has NEVER been a Nation State!
So Hussein and Jimma want to be the first to create such madness!
