  1. May he have a miraculous recovery and in gratitude for that miracle retract all the awful things he has said about Israel.

  2. Charles,

    Really? You think the hate and damage he has done to Jews and Israel can be rectified by him saying otherwise?

    And he should get a refuah שלא בדרך הטבע before he does so? And only he is cured should he retract what he says (not just what he has said)?

    Why do you even think he is worthy or deserving of a refuah? He should suffer now and in the עולם האמת for all the damage he has done.

And the likelihood of Carter doing teshuva is about equal to any of the others doing the same.
