Carter aide resigns over book
Former President Carter's book has been thoroughly discredited by reputable scholars and reviewers as a biased polemic filled with inaccuracies. And now:
"A longtime aide to Jimmy Carter has resigned from the Carter Center think tank, calling the former president's new book on Israel and the Arabs one-sided and filled with errors.
"Kenneth Stein, the Carter Center's first executive director and founder of its Middle East program, sent a letter that bluntly criticized the book to Carter and others.
"Stein wrote that the book, "Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid," was replete with factual errors, material copied from other sources and "simply invented segments," according to an excerpt of the letter published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution." But operating under his ex presidential halo Carter is still invited on talk shows where timid hosts, who have not read the book, don't question him. Maybe now they will.
