Carter Demonized by Israel Lobby

Jimmy Carter was the President of American and a sanctimonious twerp but an honest man in his way. His book tells us about collusion between the South African government and the Israelis. Other Zionist Jews were busy subverting South Africa in order to strengthen Jewish control. But that is another story. For something on that  see the Jewish Conquest of South Africa  or  Jews and Communism the South African experience.

From Wayne Madsen on 14 December 2006

December 14, 2006 -- President Jimmy Carter is being demonized by the Israel Lobby in the United States for his new book, "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid." The Lobby objects to linking Israel's policies in the West Bank and Gaza to apartheid South Africa's racist policies. However, it may come as a shock to the Israel Lobby that Israel was South Africa's closest ally: militarily, intelligence-wise, nuclear, and financial. President Carter denies he was linking Israel to South Africa. However, this editor will take that liberty.

According to the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control, "Hands down, Israel was South Africa's most important missile supplier. Pretoria got most of what it needed from Tel Aviv." The Wisconsin Project also discovered, "In June 1980, the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) reported to the National Security Council that the 2-3 kiloton nuclear test had probably involved Israel and South Africa. U.S. intelligence had tracked frequent visits to South Africa by Israeli nuclear scientists, technicians and defense officials in the years preceding the incident and concluded that "clandestine arrangements between South Africa and Israel for joint nuclear testing operations might have been negotiable." Such speculation was fueled in 1986 when Israeli nuclear technician Mordechai Vanunu was interviewed by the London Sunday Times. Vanunu said that it was common knowledge at Dimona that South African metallurgists, technicians, and scientists were there on exchange programs."

Vanunu is still under house arrest in Israel, after serving a long prison sentence for his revelations about Israel's nuclear weapons program (similar revelations were recently echoed by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert).

President Carter only told half the story: Israel was apartheid South Africa's closest ally and it seeks to impose Bantustans on Palestinian territories.

The Wisconsin Project's Risk Report also revealed: ". . . strong evidence of missile cooperation surfaced in 1989, when a powerful rocket took off from South Africa's Overberg Test Range and flew nearly 1,500 kilometers. It turned out to be a South African version of Israel's Jericho-II missile. U.S. officials confirmed later that the CIA had evidence of a full-scale partnership between the Israel and South Africa to develop, test and produce long-range missiles and rockets. A U.S. official who tracks missile proliferation tells the Risk Report that South Africa's space launcher, the RSA-4, was built around the same engines that power Israel's Jericho-II missile and its "Shavit" space launcher. In 1990, Washington penalized Armscor for its missile activities by banning trade for two years, but President Bush [George H. W. Bush] declined to punish Israel."

Economic cooperation between Israel and apartheid South Africa was also close, largely a result of the connections between South Africa's diamond mining operations and Jewish diamond brokerage businesses in Tel Aviv, Belgium, and the Netherlands. South Africa built a major railway in Israel and Israel built a large desalination plant in South Africa. South African ministers paid several visits to Israel at a time when the world community shunned South African officials. In 1981, Israeli Defense Minister Ariel Sharon visited South African troops in Namibia fighting against that country's independence forces. President Carter's fellow Nobel Peace Prize winner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, has also likened Israel's policies in Palestine to the apartheid regime's treatment of blacks. The Confederation of South African Trade Unions has called Israel an "apartheid state." In 2004, two South African Jewish political leaders, Ronnie Kasrils and Max Osinky, signed a petition with 200 other prominent South African Jews equating Israel's treatment of Palestinians to South Africa's apartheid.

Three years ago, Haaretz reported that former Italian Prime Minister Massimo D'Alema said Ariel Sharon told a dinner in Jerusalem that South Africa's apartheid model was the best way for Israel to deal with the Palestinians.

The most damning evidence of Israel's support for apartheid was the close ties it maintained with South African "Bantustans," apartheid contrivances designed to keep South African blacks separate from white South Africans. These Bantustans were not recognized by any country except South Africa. However, Israel conferred quasi-diplomatic status to a number of these so-called homelands for blacks.

Yaacov Meridor, a friend of Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, established close financial links with the Bantustan of Transkei and he located offices of his computer company, Degem, in the territory. Degem marketed population surveillance computer software to the South African and Guatemalan security services. Joseph Ben Dak, an Israeli professor, became a member of the Transkei government and Ruth Dayan, the first wife of Israeli Gen. Moshe Dayan stood as a candidate for the 1977 Transkei legislative elections on a "peace" slate of candidates.

Israel and apartheid South Africa: closest of allies.

Israel was also a major financial supporter of the Bantustan of Ciskei. Former Israeli Finance Minister Yori Aridor invested heavily in Ciskei as did 14 other Israeli multi-millionaire businessmen. Israel's Gur, Incoba, and Koor Corporations were major investors in the Ciskei apartheid contrivance. Ciskei President Lennox Sebe made a state visit to Israel in 1983.

In 1985, the Bantustan of Bophuthatswana established an office, a quasi-embassy, in Tel Aviv. That development meant that Israel joined South Africa in conferring semi-diplomatic status to a South African "homeland." Bophuthatswana government officials traveled frequently to Israel. Israeli Labor leader Shimon Peres was received on a state visit to Bophuthatswana by its President, Chief Lucas Mangope. The presence of the Sun City casino complex drew a seamier side of Israeli Bantustan investments: diamond smuggling, money laundering, and prostitution. Criminal elements tied to the late Israeli racist leader Meir Kahane, Russian-Israeli gangster Shabtai Kalmanovitch, and jailed GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff virtually ran the casino business in Bophuthatswana. Kalmanovtich was later imprisoned by Israel for being a Soviet agent.

There were burgeoning cultural links between Israel and the Venda and Lebowa Bantustans. Venda's President Patrick Mphephu, along with a number of his ministers, made a state visit to Israel in 1980. Lesotho's government protested these visits as de facto recognition of their independence by Israel. The KwaZulu Bantustan chief Gatsha Buthelezi was afforded a state visit to Israel in 1985. Buthelezi was promised assistance by the Israeli government and the Histadrut labor union.

The Israeli telephone company Bezek listed Ciskei, Bophuthatswana, and Transkei as "independent" nations in their international directory.

Israel is not only practicing a form of apartheid in Palestine, it was a major supporter of apartheid in South Africa. Jimmy Carter just scratched the surface on Israel and apartheid in his groundbreaking book.

 

Jimmy Carter And The Dodgy Loan
QUOTE
Carter's Arab financiers
Hellush draws attention to this article from The Washington Times, December 21, 2006, by Rachel Ehrenfeld ...
To understand what feeds former president Jimmy Carter's anti-Israeli frenzy, look at his early links to Arab business.

Between 1976-1977, the Carter family peanut business received a bailout in the form of a $4.6 million, "poorly managed" and highly irregular loan from the National Bank of Georgia (NBG). According to a July 29, 1980 Jack Anderson expose in The Washington Post, the bank's biggest borrower was Mr. Carter, and its chairman at that time was Mr. Carter's confidant, and later his director of the Office of Management and Budget, Bert Lance.

At that time, Mr. Lance's mismanagement of the NBG got him and the bank into trouble. Agha Hasan Abedi, the Pakistani founder of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), known as the bank "which would bribe God," came to Mr. Lance's rescue making him a $100,000-a-year consultant. Abedi then declared: "we would never talk about exploiting his relationship with the president." Next, he introduced Mr. Lance to Saudi billionaire Gaith Pharaon, who fronted for BCCI and the Saudi royal family. In January 1978, Abedi paid off Mr. Lance's $3.5 million debt to the NBG, and Pharaon secretly gained control over the bank.

Mr. Anderson wrote: "Of course, the Saudis remained discretely [ sic ] silent... kept quiet about Carter's irregularities... [and] renegotiated the loan to Carter's advantage." There is no evidence that the former president received direct payment from the Saudis. But "according to... the bank files, [it] renegotiated the repayment terms... savings... $60,000 for the Carter family... The President owned 62% of the business and therefore was the largest beneficiary." Pharaon later contributed generously to the former president's library and center.

When Mr. Lance introduced Mr. Carter to Abedi, the latter gave $500,000 to help the former president establish his center at Emory University. Later, Abedi contributed more than $10 million to Mr. Carter's different projects. Even after BCCI was indicted and convicted - for drug money laundering, Mr. Carter accepted $1.5 million from Abedi, his "good friend."

A quick survey of the major contributors to the Carter Center reveals hundreds of millions of dollars from Saudi and Gulf contributors. But it was BCCI that helped Mr. Carter established his center.

BCCI's origins were primarily ideological. Abedi wanted the bank to reflect the supra-national Muslim credo and "the best bridge to help the world of Islam, and the best way to fight the evil influence of the Zionists."

Shortly after assuming office, in March 1977, Mr. Carter made his first public statement regarding a Palestinian "homeland." Since then, he has devoted much of his time to denouncing Israel's self-defense against Palestinian terrorism, which he claims is not only "abominable oppression and persecution" of the Palestinians, but also damages U.S. interests in the region.

By the time BCCI was shut down in July1991, it operated in 73 countries with a deficit of $12 billion, which it had managed to hide with wealthy Arab shareholders and Western luminaries. Among them Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahayan of Abu Dhabi, who gave hundreds of millions of dollars to Yasser Arafat and Palestinian terrorist groups, and who branded the United States: "our enemy number one"; Former head of Saudi foreign intelligence service, and King Faisal's brother-in-law, Kamal Adham who with another Saudi, the banker of the royal family, Khaled bin Mahfouz, staged BCCI's attempt to illegally purchase the Washington-based First American bank, in the early 1980s.

True to its agenda, BCCI assisted in spreading and strengthening the Islamic message; they enabled Pakistan's nuclear ambitions, and helped the Palestinian leadership to amass a $10 billion-plus fortune, used to further terrorist activities and to buy more influence in the West.

BCCI founders also supported the Islamic fundamentalist opposition to the Shah of Iran, and saw it as an opportunity to undermine Western influence in the Gulf. They assisted the revolution financially, reinforcing their position within the leadership of the Iranian revolution. Ironically, the success of that revolution cost Mr. Carter his presidency.

BCCI's money also facilitated the Saudi agenda to force Israel to recognize Palestinians "rights," convincing Egyptian president Anwar Sadat to sign the Camp David Accords in September 1978. Since then, Mr. Carter repeatedly provided legitimacy to Arafat's corrupt regime, and now, like the Saudis, he even sides with homicidal Hamas as the "legitimate" representative of the Palestinian people.

In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Mr. Carter again laid responsibility for U.S. bias against the destitute, depressed and (consequently) violent Palestinians on American policy makers' helplessness, over the last 30 years, against the menacing tactics of the powerful American-Israel Political Action Committee (AIPAC).

However, it seems that AIPAC's real fault was its failure to outdo the Saudi's purchases of the former president's loyalty. "There has not been any nation in the world that has been more cooperative than Saudi Arabia," the New York Times quoted Mr. Carter June 1977, thus making the Saudis a major factor in U. S. foreign policy.

Evidently, the millions in Arab petrodollars feeding Mr. Carter's global endeavors, often in conflict with U.S. government policies, also ensure his loyalty.
