Pubishers Weekly Writes About CAMERA Vs. Carter

publishers_weekly.gif

Jimmy Carter is on the defensive over his book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, according to a Publishers Weekly article about CAMERA's advertisement calling on Simon & Schuster to correct the former president's published falsehoods. Simon & Schuster executives expressed surprise at CAMERA's action but said they would "stick with the president's version."

Comments

I have read comments about Jimmy Carter’s recent book titled – Palestine Peace Not Apartheid in many publications and on websites. Unfortunately majority of these comments lacked the maturity that a sensible debate requires. Instead most writers chose to smear Mr. Carter. One that topped the list was an article by Rabbi Shumley Botech that appeared in Jerusalem Post (December 26, 2006) and in The Jewish Press (December 27, 2006). Without offering any information that refutes the central thesis of Jimmy Carter’s book, the rabbi elected to attack the author by calling him a confused man and an anti-Semite. No one thus far has been able to repudiate what Jimmy Carter has written. Amnesty International and B’tselem (Israel’s own Human Rights organization) have corroborated the suppression and inhuman treatment of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. Truth can be painful to some.

Ironically, Serge, you're doing exactly what you accuse others of doing.

You limit your protest to claiming that "most writers" responding to Carter's book are merely "smearing" Carter, and that no one has reputdiated what Carter wrote.

That claim itself is simply a "smear." Most of the responses to the book offer specific criticisms of errors and distortions in the book. To pretend that the criticism is limited to calling Carter "confused" and an "anti-Semite" is absurd, and does nothing for truth or candid debate.
