Jimmy Carter’s cancer is God’s punishment for his behavior toward Jews’

Former President Jimmy Carter, 90, recently announced he has cancer that has spread to his brain.

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.” ∞∞∞∞∞ www.jpost.com ∞∞∞∞∞
