Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter recently offered the Jewish community an early Yom Kippur forgiveness prayer. In a letter released to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the notorious anti-Israel activist apologized for his actions which he says “may have stigmatized Israel”:
“We must recognize Israel’s achievements under difficult circumstances, even as we strive in a positive way to help Israel continue to improve its relations with its Arab populations, but we must not permit criticisms for improvement to stigmatize Israel. As I would have noted at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, but which is appropriate at any time of the year, I offer an Al Het for any words or deeds of mine that may have done so.”
Do you think you can find it in your heart to forgive the former U.S. President’s past transgressions?
