The above is written by Jimmy Carter himself, and the news media have been very busy with reports that have been quite shameful.
A former President tells the truth about things he has witnessed firsthand, and he is being attacked viciously.
It’s funny how the thought police have suggested Carter “plagiarized” some maps from Dennis Ross , maps !
The irony is too much for me . Dershowitz writes a book called “The Case for Israel” and Norman Finkelstein exposes large swaths of plagiarized material from Peters’ “From Time Immemorial”, and though the evidence is overwhelming, nothing happened to Dershowitz’s position or book sales. But when you are a pro-Israel Zionist mouthpiece, you are allowed some latitude.
A former US president writes a book about the deteriorating situation for the Palestinians (which was enforced by the recent findngs of James Baker, Lee Hamilton et al) and the need for a lasting peace settlement, and all of a sudden Carter is a raging anti-semite.
Note that the same guy was responsible for the original Camp David Peace Accords.
I hope the discerning readers do not take seriously this collaberative character-assassination by pro-Israel think tanks, necocon hotbeds, and major media outlets.
