Jimmy Carter's Soothing Words About the Muslim Brotherhood

By John W. Lillpop

Losing sleep over fears that Egypt may fall into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood, those wretched purveyors of radical Islam?

Relax, fellow patriots.

A calming voice from the past is making a valiant attempt to subdue the fear of all things Muslim, a phenomenon which creates panic and shock among otherwise intelligent Americans.

From whence come the soothing words? And of what pedigree is he that would soothe?

As it turns out, the soothing agent is none other than James Earl Carter, 39th President of these United States.

Known far and wide as the “worst president” of the 20th century, Carter retains sufficient arrogance and remains in enough denial to believe that 1)His opinions have tangible value to those charged with protecting the vital interests of the United States, and 2)With the exception of his wife and daughter, there are Americans who actually give a tinker’s dam about what this dried up prune has to say about the middle east, or anything else for that matter.

Carter’s latest foray into issues about which he should remain mute involves the revolution in Egypt and the likelihood that the Muslim Brotherhood will play a significant role in the formation of a new government.

Said the man who was U.S. President when Iran fell to Islamic revolutionaries in 1979:

"I think the Muslim Brotherhood is not anything to be afraid of in the upcoming (Egyptian) political situation and the evolution I see as most likely. They will be subsumed in the overwhelming demonstration of desire for freedom and true democracy."

See Reference.

Carter’s insular remarks were made during a seminar at LBJ Library on February 17, 2011.

The big question: Just what is it about Islamafascism that finds so much favor in the hearts and minds of left-wing eccentrics like Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter?
