Carr Sickness…writes Jack Chrapot

Tonight, we sit down to read about the liberation of the Jews from slavery back in the days of the Pharaohs. When we finally get through the part about our deliverance from Egypt, we eat because after all, who can reflect about this long history of overcoming evil and nasty tyrants on an empty stomach?

This year, we have a new Pharaoh for possible discussion at our Seder nights in the form of failed former foreign minister Bob Carr, variously described in recent days as “pompous” and “a tosser“.

But what’s all the fuss about?

The man might have released an encyclopaedia of self-indulgence that makes him look like a complete donkey but it’s not like he’s firing missiles at our women and children like the Palestinian terror groups. All he’s done is what most retired politicians do when they feel unwanted – write a book full of cheap shots and delusional ranting and nothing more.

I mean the release of his memoir as a foreign minister exposes the author more for a weakness of character than demonstrating any achievements of note during his time in office.

What he appears to be doing is a confirmation that he has no qualms about betraying friends which he did to his prime minister before being kicked out of office. He also did it to the principles of the working people he once was supposed to represent. Would a true Labour person complain about not being able to travel first class or regard himself so superior as to not feel humble in the presence of Obama and Putin? I never believed that I would ever come across a representative of a party representing working people complaining about a lack of pyjamas on a business class flight.

This egomaniac rails against the so called “Israel lobby” as if the Jews all think the same. Thinks we should just be quiet, cop the slings and arrows of those who hate us and never be allowed to defend ourselves as happened when we were slaves back in Egypt.

Never mind that there’s a well-oiled Palestinian lobby out there that seems to have the ear of someone who once famously played a role in awarding a farcical “peace prize” to a Palestinian apologist for suicide bombers.

And there has to be something wrong when the publicity for a book about how foreign policy is made highlights the supposed influence of the Israel lobby but ignores the carnage that went on in neighbouring Syria during his watch.

Go figure?

I learned long ago to distrust those who find it necessary to peddle the line that “some of my best friends are Jews” and Carr’s sickening self-defence by claiming he has knowledge of the Holocaust should ring some alarm bells.

A number of people have come forward to dispute the man’s version of events described in his book which leads me to quote one line which best sums him up.

“I lie in my tailored suit.”


In the days of yore, we were slaves in Egypt. We were the workers made to bow to imperious, arrogant and dangerous foes who we overcame one by one. Carr pales into insignificance among them and although that doesn’t excuse him of being shamefully bigoted when it comes to his position on Israel and the Jews, I’m going to ignore him from now on. We have bigger fish to fry.

Could someone please pass the matzo balls?

    He has a mischievous face this Jack Chaprot a sense of humour and getting his message across, I like that.

  2. David Singer says:

    Sixteen million Jews world wide threatened with having their one Jewish state with a population of 6.25 million Jews the urging of 57 Islamic States is apparently in Carr’s view not worth fighting for.

    Carr obviously was prepared to denigrate and delegitimise the Jewish claim to appease those Islamic nations who were lobbying him – abandoning the principles laid down by former Labor foreign minister Dr Evatt who chaired the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine that in 1947 recommended the partition of what was left of Palestine (after 78% known as. Transjordan was granted independence in 1946) into a Jewish State and another second Arab State.

    There was no mention then of a “Palestinian State”. Did this ever cross Carr’s mind?

    Carr must have hated being reminded that the Arabs rejected the Evatt committee recommendation and sent seven Arab armies into Palestine to drive the Jews into the sea.

    Carr must have squirmed when any Jews dared to tell him that the Arabs had rejected proposal after proposal by the Jews to bury the hatchet starting back in 1922 and did nothing to create a state in the West Bank and Gaza between 1948-1967after all the Jews living there had been expelled.

    He made an historic appearance on the steps of the Lakemba mosque seeking to unilaterally change labor party policy that had remained steadfastly firm to the principles of Dr Evatt.

    Carr’s conduct is well documented in the following series of articles written by me and published on various news sites on the Internet – including Jwire

    Read them and the Jew hating comments my articles provoked at your leisure at:

    My articles were critical of Carr trying to fit Prime Minister Rudd and Labor with an anti-Jewish policy made on the run at the Lakemba mosque – with Rudd refusing to confirm it was indeed his view and Labor policy.

    Carr had ample opportunities to publicly deny my claims but never raised even a whimper.

    Carr is obviously very bitter at being out of a job for which he must share the blame as a result of his extraordinary attempt to subvert Labor Party policy

    Blaming his retirement on the Israel lobby Is an easy cop out and a sure success to gaining publicity for his book.

    Maybe he should reflect that it was the Australian voters that rejected his anti – Israel stance. Had he listened to the Israeli lobby he might still be enjoying the trappings and perks that foreign ministers enjoy.

    He succumbed to the powerful Islamic lobby.

    That was certainly his prerogative – but it has resulted in his being consigned to the diplomatic graveyard that has claimed foreign ministers around the world who have ignored the international verdicts of the League of Nations and the United Nations at their peril.

  3. Well written Mr Jack Chrapot.
    Bob Car was never a friend to anyone, he masquerades his closeness to others via pretence. His aloofness and his supper grin is the give away. I have met him twice; once at the Sydney Jewish Museum at a book launch. He was not able to relate to ordinary people. The second time it was at the Coogee promenade on his walk with his wife. When I stopped him to exchange a few words, he brushed me aside and walked on. I have never managed to warm-up to this man. Now, his through character and personality is for all to see.

    well, lots of people fought while hungry and thirsty—the crew at Mila 18, the hold outs at Masada, Treblinka and the guys at the ovens all held forth. then that crew back in the woods raising all manner of mischief…then we can think about the folks on the Amistad, along with those on over 400 other voyages while crossing the Atlantic on slave ships–they HAD to be hungry—-not to mention Denmark Vesey, Gabriel Prosser and Queen Nanny over in Jamaica…..we cannot forget the Irish who fought Cornwall, and for their trouble, sailed to Australia and the States in first class cabins…..

    It seems like hunger and desperation and desire for freedom are almost prerequisites for even having a good party…..

  5. Paul Winter says:

    Well, actually, when Bob talks about the Israel lobby he lies whether he is in his tailored suit or his birthday suit. He seems to have put the existence of Jews for Palestine, the NIF and the AJDS and characters like Slezak and Loewnstein down the memory hole.

    Much more concerning is that Carr gives legitimacy to letter writers like one Robert Mann who called for details on the lobby, its effects on Australian government policy – implying that anyone who is an Israel supporter is thus an Israel firster and consequently disloyal to Australia – and that that lobby manipulates politicians behind the scenes. This echoes the theme of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

    The other matter of concern is the spineless response of our local leaders. That Curr should have been roundly and publicly denounced. Instead we have some half humorous swipes at him. Our leadership seems to think that ignoring the impact of the insinuations – denying it oxygen, if you wish – will minimise their impact.
