Israel is not an apartheid state, so Carter was indulging in propaganda rather than pointing out facts. His book was so laced with innacuracies, omissions of important details and outright fabrications as to be worty of "Electonic intifada" or the International solidarity movement. The book was clumsy, cartoonish and beneath contempt as far as serious scholorship is concerned.

Sure, they are not without guilt, but if you support Carter's demonizing screed, you support the notion that they are uniquely and completely guilty and the Palestinians are guilty of nothing -- this despite the TRUE facts of the matter.

One cannot simultaneously support Hamas and stand against terrorism. It doesn't work that way any more than saying you are against racism while supporting the KKK. If Jimmy were to seek middle ground he would not be standing so squarely in the Palestinian camp.
