Anyone but the Dersh

As you may recall, a 'documentary' was being made of Jimmy Carter's promotional tour for his book, 'Palestine: Peace not Apartheid.' The 'documentary' has now been released. It's called "Jimmy Carter: Man from Plains." It's reviewed by one Yossi Mekelberg in Tuesday's al-Guardian. Here's an excerpt.
What this film does best is illustrate the beauty of American democracy: you publish a book, you go on a promotional tour, and anyone who is prepared to phone in to a talk show can argue with you. It shows the diversity of the US, and the respect that Carter commands. Whatever you think of his views - and it's obvious he has more sympathy for the Palestinians - you can't fault his commitment and genuineness.
Anyone can argue with him unless his name is Alan Dershowitz. As to Carter's 'commitment' and 'genuineness,' I would agree that Carter is about as genuine an anti-Semite as has ever walked the face of the earth. Commitment to what? Islamic terrorism?

Oh, and if you're wondering about Yossi Mekelberg, you can find his resume here.

Personally, I am proud to say that Jimmy Carter is a Democrat. Anyone care to guess my political affiliation?

Jimmy Carter faults Israel for not having given up enough. Ironically, Israel has done that and is still blamed. Its not Israel's alleged lack of generosity that that has upset Carter. Its Israel's existence! Need more be said?
