Quote of the Day

Lady Liberty

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

"Yasser, that's my baby. No, sir, I don't mean maybe."

From the James Earl Carter Center for The Very, Very Stupid, we have the following heartfelt remarks from the ex-President and Jew hater as he laments the death of his favorite Jew-killing terrorist, Yasser Arafat:

Former US President Jimmy Carter calls Arafat a "powerful human symbol"

MIAMI (AFP) - Former US President Jimmy Carter called Yasser Arafat "a powerful human symbol and forceful advocate" who united Palestinians in their pursuit of a homeland.

"Yasser Arafat's death marks the end of an era and will no doubt be painfully felt by Palestinians throughout the Middle East and elsewhere in the world," Carter said.

"He was the father of the modern Palestinian nationalist movement. A powerful human symbol and forceful advocate, Palestinians united behind him in their pursuit of a homeland," he said in a statement distributed by his Atlanta, Georgia-based Carter Center.

He said that while Arafat provided "indispensable leadership to a revolutionary movement" and played a key role in forging a peace agreement with Israel in 1993, he was excluded from negotiations in recent years.

"My hope is that an emerging Palestinian leadership can benefit from Arafat's experiences, be welcomed to the peace process by (Israeli) Prime Minister (Ariel) Sharon and (US) President (George W.) Bush, and be successful in helping to forge a Palestinian state living in harmony with their Israeli neighbors," Carter said.

Both Carter and Arafat are Nobel peace prize laureates.

Arafat, who died at a Paris hospital early Thursday, was to be buried at his West Bank headquarters after a military funeral ceremony in Cairo Friday.

Carter "will not be attending the funeral," said Jon Moor, a Carter Center spokesman.
Forget what prompted Carter's eulogy, the death of yet another of history's murderous losers from that part of the world, and focus instead on what has always been his long-term goal. I'm sure you're as moved as I am that Jimmy holds the sunny hope of a Palestinian state living in harmony with the Israel that Arafat and his "people" were still devoted to destroying even while their fearless leader was cowering in his Ramala shithole shuffling the millions he's looted among his Swiss bank accounts. After all, they believe all of the land is "Palestine" and, hey, they're "Palestinians", ergo ...

But we have Carter, a guy who pats himself on the back for brokering a "peace" deal between Egypt and Israel that got Anwar Sadat shot to pieces by a bunch of raghead fanatics. Now, do you think Jimmy might've sat back after Sadat was turned into a pin cushion, put two and two together and concluded, "Well, heck, I get the feelin' them A-rabs don't like the idea of peace with the Zionist Hebes - er, I mean, the Israelis." Not our boy Jimmy. No, sir. See, practically running the United States into the ground with double digit inflation and interest rates wasn't enough of an accomplishment. Nor was allowing Iran to kidnap our citizens and turn us into a laughing stock in a region of the world where bathroom tissue and indoor plumbing are viewed as Satanic (this event also motivated ABC to create Nightline, so we can blame him for that, too). Nor was dumbly watching as the Soviet Union waltzed into Afghanistan. Nor was fighting off killer rabbits. None of it was enough of a legacy, because Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East that stood between us and a bunch of screaming maniacs who would still be scratching their heads wondering what that black stuff was bubbling up out of the sand were it not for western know-how, existed. He had to work tirelessly to ensure that the so-called Palestinians, the fictional oppressed people created by the United Nations to legitimize its hatred of Israel, ended up with a state entitled to European financing (and American foreign aid if only an anti-Semite like Jimmy could get in the White House again) with which it could arm itself to the teeth and wage a real war against the Zionists with a real army instead of the rock throwing morons and suicide bombers they've had to depend on these many years.

It's scary enough to think that a segment of our population once elected this idiot President. But, okay, we survived (barely) his unfunny joke of an administration and moved on. Still, he's there. At election time, or whenever the US takes it upon itself of late to confront tin horn Muslim dictators who have done everything short of begging us to kick the shit out of them, you can find Jimmy's face plastered on TV gravely explaining how we're "inflaming" the camel jockeys. Keep it up and, hell, they'll keep attacking us the same way they did before we bombed the crap out of them. Worse, they'll stop immigrating to the US. Not only will that leave us with a shortage of cab drivers overcharging passengers and with boarded up 7-Elevens across the country, we'll be deprived of the prospect of having our very own Bosnia or Chechnyna in another 10 years or so.

Arafat was nothing more than the father of modern terrorism. I was dreading his death not because I feared the "Arab street" would rise up - they barely "rise up" to go to work - but because I knew it meant the fucking mainstream media would turn to Carter en masse for one of his pious statements.

Which they did.

I suppose I can look at the bright side: After Arafat, there aren't any terrorists with whom Carter enjoyed a personal relationship that would require one of his public eulogies when they die. When Saddam and Usama croak, he can mourn in private. Thank God, because I've about had it with seeing his prune face. From 9-11, throughout the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, during the Democratic National Convention and the election itself ...

It's like, I don't know, the country got a bad case of herpes in 1976 and it just keeps recurring.

I hate to mention it, but Castro is getting ready to meet Marx himself. Yet another occasion for mush-mouthed pro-thugocracy pieties from Jimmah.

Carter has to make Arafat out to be a great guy...if not his own Nobel Peace Prize is negated!....

Yassir is a perfect example of what decent people mean when they say, 'spiritually dead'

Yassir died in the early 1960's, and his death was noted by the competent and capable and spiritually enlightened of humankind. Yassir then bided his time killing people and waiting for his body to catch up with him.

Physical death synchronized with Yassir's spirit just now.
