YU's Law School to Honor Jimmy Carter for 'Conflict Resolution'
The Jewish Press ^ | April 8, 2013 | Lori Lowenthal Marcus

Posted on 04/08/2013 10:21:43 AM PDT by Zionista Feminista

Yeshiva University’s Cardozo School of Law is scheduled to present former U.S. president Jimmy Carter with the “International Advocate for Peace” Award this Wednesday, April 10.

Since leaving the presidency, former president Carter has been present in many places around the globe where tremendous conflict has taken – and continues to take – place. With respect to the conflicts foremost in the minds of pro-Israel Jews and other Zionists, the role Carter has played has been wildly unpopular.

The award is being presented by the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution. The law school administration has insisted – through a statement issued by a public relations firm – it was a choice made by the students. Sources have suggested the opposite is the case.

In what appeared to be an effort to distance themselves from the award and the event, at least to those complaining, some concerned individuals were told “on good assurance” that neither Cardozo’s Dean Diller nor YU’s President Joel would be present at the award ceremony, and that they were completely uninvolved.

As a letter obtained by The Jewish Press that was sent by Dean Diller to certain “high roller” alumni inviting them to the event made clear, however, Diller plans to be front and center at the event.

Well, I guess one way to not have a conflict is to visit a murderous dictatorship and see no evil.

Now I understand what “HIGH” means in higher education.

Yale U, must be “on the sh**”.

This is Yeshiva University, which used to be an Orthodox Jewish institution. A group of students there once attended a Carter rally with Hebrew signs that said ‘Reagan’.

Its Cardozo Law School is now simply another politically correct New York institution, complete with a homosexual club.

I have heard that actual observant Orthodox Jews studying law are opting for Fordham these days.

Even worse!

Carter hates Israel and the Jews.

(Of course that is no excuse for me skimming the title so poorly)

Well, yeah. He negotiated a deal with the North Koreans and we haven’t had a problem with them since.

Why is it that some of the Jews’ worst enemies are other Jews?

Typical American Jews, contrary to frequent opinions on FR, do not in any way think of themselves as Jews first.

With a very few exceptions, American Jews just can’t resist the liberal impulse.....

Remember, there are no nukes in NK. Jimmy got a Nobel Peace Prize for that one, so it must be true.

A Jewish University giving Jimmy Carter an award in Conflict Resolution is like giving Hitler an award for Population Control

This is outrageous
