Show Jimmy Carter the Door

Jimmy Carter (I could never respect a president who called himself "Jimmy" when receiving the oath of office) wrote a book blaming Israel for everything wrong in his world. Everything. Would you be surprised that he made a lot of errors, given his obvious bias. Don't trust me, because I haven't read it. But people who have are saying:
-1- Jimmy Carter admitted yesterday that he did not consult Dennis Ross' book, The Missing Peace , before writing his own volume on the Arab-Israel conflict. "I've never seen Dennis Ross' book. I'm not knocking it, I'm sure it's a very good book," Carter said on CNN. Which begs the question: Why not? As chief Middle East peace negotiator under Presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Ambassador Ross knows perhaps more than anyone else the details of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks at the end of 2000—a topic discussed by Carter in recent interviews and his new book. The Missing Peace is described by Bill Clinton as "the definitive" account of those complicated negotiations, and has garnered praise from four past US secretaries of state. -2- Former President Jimmy Carter has written an egregiously biased book called Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid and is currently doing numerous interviews to sell the book and its ideas. Carter is attempting to rewrite history, and in his alternate universe, Arabs parties are blameless and Israel is at fault for almost all the conflicts in the world. One gets the feeling after reading just a few pages that if he could have blamed Hurricane Katrina on Israel, he would have -3- Middle East historian Kenneth Stein has resigned from the Carter Center over the former president’s new book which, he charges, is "replete with factual errors, copied materials not cited, superficialities, glaring omissions, and simply invented segments."
