Jimmy Carter Finds New Fans in Radical Islam & University Leftists
But, it is not just indoctrinated college students who are using Carter’s book for Anti-Israeli political fodder…
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad website is just one radical website promoting Jimmy Carter’s anti-Israeli book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.
The Palestine Chronicle also gives a thumbs up to the book:
Jimmy Carter’s most recent book, Palestine Peace Not Apartheid, has raised a storm of criticism from the Derschowitz-AIPAC wing of American Judaism, stung by his even-handed recounting of events and conversations, as well as his straightforward presentation of the failure to implement UN Security Council resolutions.
From the criticism one might think that in the book Carter places all the blame on the Israelis, but that is far from the case. There is, in fact, at least one point (page 13) where he seems unbalanced in the other direction, citing the rise of Islamic fundamentalism as among continuing impediments to peace. Fair enough. But is not the rise of Jewish fundamentalism also a continuing impediment, responsible for the persistence and intransigence of settlement expansion, the massacre in the mosque in Hebron, and the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin? Of course not every detail can be included.
The book is impressive for its plain speaking, its illumination of the big picture, Carter’s personal history in the discussions, and its careful attention to accuracy about the facts.
