When he wrote a book called “Palestine: Peace not Apartheid”, I knew that he would be attacked viciously.
In the minds of little people, criticism of Israel is anti-semitic in nature.
Luckily, people who know the history of the conflict and the propaganda the US people must withstand on this topic laugh at such a ridiculous comment. The argument is invalid and utter rubbish and has been de-bunked time and time again. Yet it continues to be recycled by idiotic emotional romantics when considering the Israeli-Palestinian question.
If the shoe were on the other foot, and I were a caller on CSPAN and Pres Bush was the guest, all political and moral differences aside, I would not dare to speak to Pres Bush with the same lack of respect that this caller speaks to Jimmy Carter. I am happy he answered the caller’s comments with such diplomacy, but I wish he had embarassed her for stating nonsense on national TV.
It’s disgraceful, and I suggest the caller ought to relocate to Israel if she feels that the chief architect of the first lasting Arab-Israeli peace accord is a man of hatred.
The record demonstrates otherwise.
