Carter's Apology to Jews a Hallow, Shallow, Forgotten Moment


Carter will never learn! He is such an anti-Semite.

We all knew the "apology" was a lie from the beginning.

In Jewish law, saying you are sorry means NOTHING. Without action, apologies are hollow.

If he REALLY wants to show us he means it

when he apologizes, he could follow this simple list, a list my children study before each Rosh Hashana:

Three Levels of Forgiveness
(based on a "Tomer Devorah" class by Rabbi Yaacov Haber. "Tomer Devorah" is a work by Rabbi Moshe Cordovero on the Attributes of G-d.)

"Selichah," "Mechilah," and "Kapparah.”

"Selichah,” (forgiveness) is the first step if someone has committed a sin, against G-d or against Man. One says to the injured party, "I am sorry; I sincerely regret it, and I will never do it again."

The appropriate response to this request is forgiveness.

"Mechilah," (wiping away) concerns putting the relationship back where it was before the sin. A positive response to this is difficult, but required.

"Kapparah," (atonement as in “Yom Kippur”) is the response to a person who says, "My conscience will not let me live with myself, because of what I did to you and to our relationship." This response is beyond human capacity. It is only G-d Who can reach inside a person and say "Be comforted." "Kapparah" is the climax of this three-part process.


It would be impossible for Carter to adequately show remorse for his actions and repair the relationship with Jews, because HE NEVER HAD A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH THE JEWS.

In addition, he will only mouth the words of apology, he will never take those words into his soul.

He is a fake, a liar, a sinner.

He should have just kept his mouth shut, and tried his best to lay low--but NO! His hate for Jews would not permit this. Amalek cannot be quiet about Amalek's hate.

ADL: Carter has reverted to anti-Israel stance, despite recent apology
By Haaretz Service

Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter's apology to the Jewish community over his anti-Israel views should not be taken seriously, an Anti-Defamation League statement said Sunday, claiming that Carter had continued attacking Israel even after sending an apologetic letter to the leaders of the U.S. Jewish community.

Late last year, the former U.S. president apologized to the American Jewish community for "stigmatizing Israel" in a letter published by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, and asked for forgiveness for his actions.

"We must recognize Israel's achievements under difficult circumstances, even as we strive in a positive way to help Israel continue to improve its relations with its Arab populations, but we must not permit criticisms for improvement to stigmatize Israel," Carter wrote.

"As I would have noted at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, but which is appropriate at any time of the year, I offer an Al Het for any words or deeds of mine that may have done so," Carter wrote, referring to the prayer said on Yom Kippur in which Jews ask God for forgiveness for any sins.

In the statement released Sunday, ADL chief Abraham H. Foxman called "that apology into question following a speech in which he reverted to his former views."

The statement referred to a speech given by Carter this month which, Foxman writes, is profoundly disappointing, and leaves little doubt of the insincerity of his apology."

On one occasion, Foxman claimed, Carter accused the U.S. of being "much more attuned to the sensitivities of the Israelis" during a U.S.-Arab relations in Atlanta, adding that he felt the U.S. had "yielded excessively to the circumstances in the Holy Land as Israel has confiscated several lands within Palestine."

Carter had also, in that occasion, accused the Obama administration of unfairly siding with Israel and criticized the administration's shuttle diplomacy efforts as "feeble."

"Those remarks," the ADL statement said, "coincided with the diplomatic dust-up between Israel and the U.S. over new housing construction in East Jerusalem."

The statement also referred to a latter sent to the former U.S. president by Foxman, in which the ADL chief "questioned the sincerity of his apology and offer to continue discussions in the future - an offer Carter had proffered in a call to ADL the same day of his speech in Atlanta."

"I do not believe further discussions between us will be fruitful," Mr. Foxman wrote. "I continue to hope the day will come when you have truly repented of your insensitive views of Israel and the Jewish people.
