Follow up to Jimmy Carter

Original post made by Schlomo, Midtown, on Dec 6, 2006

This is from the AP:
"ATLANTA (AP) -- A longtime aide to Jimmy Carter has resigned from the Carter Center think tank, calling the former president's new book on Israel and the Arabs one-sided and filled with errors.

Kenneth Stein, the Carter Center's first executive director and founder of its Middle East program, sent a letter that bluntly criticized the book to Carter and others.

Stein wrote that the book, "Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid," was replete with factual errors, material copied from other sources and "simply invented segments," according to an excerpt of the letter published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution."

I will now watch the progress of this fellow as he progresses in life. This man has courage, and knows what he is going to be called and how he is going to be portrayed. I am willing to bet that this will not be reported nearly as widely as Carter's book, and that where it is, there will be insinuations that this is some kind of revenge thing for not getting a pay raise or something. Let's watch this story develop.

Thanks for finding it.

Oh, there it is, at the end of the story if you read all the way.
The implication that this is just because Stein "doesn't trust the Palestinians as much as Carter" ie he is racist.

I knew there would be some kind "reason" for this man daring to disagree. It couldn't possibly be because Stein actually has actual facts.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
