ABC Correspondent Writes of Respect for Prof. Stein

As noted on CAMERA's Web site, Professor Keneth Stein has resigned his position as Middle East Fellow of the Carter Center of Emory University due to the "egregious errors and polemical conclusions" in President Carter's new book.

ABC News' Senior National Correspondent Jake Tapper vouches for Professor Stein on his ABC blog:

As a college student, I interned for Dr. Stein at the Carter Center in 1988. He's a stand-up guy, one committed to trying to find a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and one certainly open to the Palestinian point of view.

My work for Stein revolved around research about THE BENELUX STATES -- the economic union that allows Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxemboug to function together while existing separately. I also researched ways in which Israel and the Palestinians were intertwined infrastructurally -- water supplies, for instance. This is not the work of a man turning a deaf ear to the needs of the Palestinians -- it's the work of a man researching ways to achieve peace.
