This is ugly hogwash typical of crazy religious people. Except when you live in an ethnocratic state, it gets elevated to the category of “news.” The Jerusalem Post, picking up a Jewish Telegraphic Agency story: ‘Jimmy Carter’s cancer is God’s punishment for his behavior toward Jews’
For some Jews (and evangelical Christians), the cause apparently is obvious. No, it’s not his genetic makeup, or the spread of a mass from his liver to his brain. It’s divine punishment for his behavior toward the Jews.
Not so fast, writes Rabbi Benjamin Blech on Aish.com, the website of Orthodox Jewish outreach organization Aish HaTorah: “Don’t presume to know that his illness is a result of his anti-Semitic views.”
The Jewish Telegraphic Agency puts out this crap? My lord. I don’t understand why people are so obsessed with Islam when Zionism is in the cupboards.
