Jimmy Carter, Oxford Idol

They'd better not be charging much for an Oxford education these days, because the school doesn't appear to be maintaining its historic standards — or any acceptable standards.

Last week an honorary degree was awarded to the verminous Jimmy Carter, who keeps himself in the news constantly by praising Islamic terrorists and doing everything in his thankfully limited power to undermine the United States and Israel.

This symbolic gesture is no worse than Princeton granting an honorary doctorate to the permanently punch-drunk Muhammad Ali for his past moonbattery. But at least Princeton isn't assigning books scribbled by Ali for its classes.

This year Oxford will be offering the course "The Middle East and the West: From Confrontation to Coexistence." It will enlighten students as to "the real causes of conflict" in the Middle East. Carter's propagandistic diatribe Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid will be used as "background reading."

As readers might recall, this particularly egregious work of pro-terrorist propaganda is so outrageously false, the publisher has gotten into hot water for passing it off as nonfiction. The lies Carter packed into it are sufficiently vile that 14 advisers at his Carter Center resigned in disgust. A few of the malicious untruths are helpfully documented by the liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.

But the book being a collection of vicious and despicable lies is certainly no reason not to use it as course material at the University of Oxford, which also called upon Jimmy the Dhimmi to deliver the Seventh Annual Hands Lecture. The Dhimmster predictably exploited this as another opportunity to propagandize on behalf of Hamas, which has plunged Gaza into violent chaos in the course of transforming it into the perfect cat's paw for the Iranian terror state Jimmah helped create.

Oxford educrats, if you ever want to rejoin the civilized world, you could do so by granting us all a major favor: next time Carter shows up to give a speech or collect an award, call the Orkin Man.

If you find the premises infested by Jimmy Carter, just call the Orkin Man.

On a tip from Byron.

I think Carter's "Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid" is more suited for bathroom reading, especially when the toilet paper roll is empty.

Actually, Oxford only charges foreign students. Brits get government grants to attend.
