Jimmy Carter refuses to debate again
Jimmy Carter continued his speaking tour to stimulate discussion and debate about Israel by once again refusing to discuss or debate his views with an opponent, this time at Emory University, Atlanta. Rick Richman of Jewish Current Issues covers the hypocrisy in play, and also deconstructs Carter's inadequate apology for and revisions of his book on Israel and the Palestinians with "apartheid" in the title. Carter manages to back away from a sentence which seemed to condone Palestinian terrorism, but still leaves the fdoor open for terror acts against Israeli troops. The man from Plains who prides himself on plain-speaking can't seem to find the will to ask Palestinians to live up to their promises at Oslo.
