On Monday, J-Street honored former president Jimmy Carter with their "Tzedek v'Shalom" award.

Jimmy Carter has a problem with Jews. Not Zionists - Jews. 

I'm not talking about his reprehensible comparisons of Israel with apartheid South Africa, or his apologetics for all of Israel's enemies.

No, Jimmy Carter's anti-Zionism is rooted in Jimmy Carter's antisemitism.

When Helen Thomas was forced out of her job for blatantly antisemitic comments that Jews in Israel should go back to Poland and Germany, she was interviewed by Playboy. Here's what she said:

PLAYBOY: What was life like in the immediate aftermath as millions started viewing the video on YouTube?

THOMAS: I went into self-imposed house arrest for two weeks. It was a case of “know thyself.” Isn’t that what Socrates said? I wanted to see if I was remorseful—and I wasn’t.

... I also heard from Jimmy Carter. He called a few weeks later.

PLAYBOY: He did? What did he say?

THOMAS: Basically he was sympathetic. He talked about the Israelis in the Middle East, the violations. It was very nice of him to call, but I don’t want to get him into trouble.
In Carter's book, "Peace Not Apartheid," he made the incredibly odious suggestion that Palestinian terror against Jews should continue until Israel fulfills its supposed obligations:
It is imperative that the general Arab community and all significant Palestinian groups make it clear that they will end the suicide bombings and other acts of terrorism when international laws and the ultimate goals of the Roadmap for Peace are accepted by Israel.

But worst of all was something that happened in 1987, an episode that  shows beyond a doubt that Carter's vaunted support for human rights and justice ends when Jews are involved.

Carter received a letter from  the daughter of the Waffen SS guard, Martin Bartesch, who was being deported from the US for lying on his immigration application. 

Bartesch had volunteered for the Waffen SS and served in the SS Death's Head Division. He was a guard at the Mauthausen, where 38,000 Jews died.  German records from the camp record that he personally shot dead Max Oschorn, a French Jew. 

Bartesch's family had written to many US senators asking for help. They would contact the Justice Department's Office of Special Investigation and ask for details, and the OSI told them that Bartesch was a murderer, and the senators would drop the matter. 

Not Jimmy Carter. 

Without even asking the OSI to verify what the family claimed (like their claim that Bartesch was forced to serve for the Nazis,)  Carter wrote a note at the top of the letter and forwarded it to the OSI:

To Director, O.S.I.

I hope that, in cases like this, that special consideration can be given to affected families for humanitarian reasons. Jimmy Carter.

That's the person that J-Street honors - someone who spits on the graves of Holocaust victims in favor of supporting their murderers, while claiming "humanitarian reasons."
