More on Jimmy Carter and the "A" Word
Former President Jimmy Carter has been receiving severe criticisms from all over, but particularly from the Jewish world for his use of the word "Apartheid" in the title of his new book. Carter does not call Israel an apartheid state, rather he says, I am "referring to Palestine and not to Israel." David Harris, Executive Director of the American Jewish Committee also points out that Carter "never claims that Israel is engaging in racially motivated policies and rightly argues for a two-state solution to the conflict."
M.J. Rosenberg's opinion column entitled "What Did Jimmy Carter Mean?" in the Israel Policy Forum's website is among the most balanced Jewish opinions I have seen. Its well worth reading.
