    Hopefully Jimmy will turn to the King of the Universe in quiet reflection before all is over.

  • Be Brave

    President Carter may be off base on a few issues, and especially his comments about the police, he is still a fine man that deserves everyone’s respect. If only Islam had his equal.

  • I wish President Carter the best with his struggle with cancer. I hope he has a long time along with good health to be with and enjoy his family.

    His legacy unfortunately will be that he was one of the worst Presidents. Any time there is a terrible President it is terrible for the country.

    Because of his book Palestine: Peace not Apartheid he will be remembered as an anti-Semite.

    Hopefully relations between Egypt and Israel will continue to improve. Israelis will continue to live in peace despite of Carter’s attempts at meddling. This is because of Israel’s unilateral actions. If the PA wants a deal they better make the concessions required by Israel. Israelis care less and less about a deal and that means the PA will have to cough up more to get a deal.
