Carter defends Mideast book as accurate
By CHARLES ODUM, Associated Press Writer 29 minutes ago
Former President Jimmy Carter said Saturday that the storm of criticism he has faced for his recent book has not weakened his resolve for fair treatment of Israelis and Palestinians.
"I have been called a liar," Carter said at a town hall meeting on the second day of a three-day symposium on his presidency at the University of Georgia.
"I have been called an anti-Semite," he said. "I have been called a bigot. I have been called a plagiarist. I have been called a coward. Those kind of accusations, they concern me, but they don't detract from the fact the book is accurate and is needed."
Following the publication of the book: "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid," 14 members of an advisory board to his Carter Center resigned in protest. Those former board members and other critics contend the book is unfairly critical of Israel.
"Not one of the critics of my book has contradicted any of the basic premises ... that is the horrible persecution and oppression of the Palestinian people and secondly that the formula for finding peace in the Middle East already exists," the 82-year-old Carter said.
Carter said he was pleased the book has stimulated discussion of an issue that has been "omitted from the public consciousness" for at least the last six years.

Hey, Peanut Boy-the truth hurts, doesn't it?
Add treacherous national disgrace.
Go on, Jimmuh. Dig the hole a little deeper.
Plain and simple... TRAITOR.
I was going to suggest "incompetent bumbler".
Jimmy, you are a liar and an antisemite, and a lot of other things. Stop your sniveling, and just go away.
Sure, it's called surrender. I guess that's peace, sort of . . . . . .
I assume that 4 years from today CSPAN will do a 30 year anniversary on Reagan's Inaugeration.
He left out - Asshole and Traitor..
I guess he couldn't refute those two with passages in his book.
Boy oh boy, I would have to take major exception to that. And being called all of those names are just accurate reflections of what Carter is, as revealed very clearly in this book.
His backside must be sore after his Saudi masters have enjoyed their pleasures.
Carter. A disguise to Georgia, a disgrace to America.
Well done Jimmy, you are a member of the 70, born to pleasure the jihadists in the afterlife.
On a good day you're a half-wit. You are deficient in all that lends character. You are ridiculous and obnoxious, sour and senile. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt.
You are a bleating fool...go away.
All true, Dhimmy. All true. Add these to the list as well:
What's a "blue nose"? A member of the Blue crew?
I spat coffee reading the keywords added!
The keywords were more entertaining then his book.
He literally had in his book that the Palestinians were being given orders from 'heavan above'. Which is Islamic code wording for the Mahdi.
So he basically told them the killing of the Israelis was sanctioned from Allah.
Who the heck was the ghost writer for his book? Or is he another Osama Bin Laden?
Ya left out "Turd" bunky.
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
