Yeshiva University issues statement on Carter appearance at Cardozo law school

Here's a statement that was emailed to a friend of mine by John DeNatale, the Director of Communications and Public Affairs for Cardozo Law School, regarding the upcoming award being given to former President Jimmy Carter by the school's Journal of Conflict Resolution.
"This year student editors of the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution have chosen to honor former President Jimmy Carter with the International Advocate for Peace Award in recognition of his lifetime of work, from the historic Camp David Peace Accord between Israel and Egypt, to monitoring some 90 elections around the world and supporting fledgling democracies to resolve conflicts without violence. The Journal is recognized as one of the premier publications in the field of dispute resolution, and previous Peace Award recipients have included President Bill Clinton, Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, Senator George Mitchell, John Wallach and Seeds of Peace, playwright Eve Ensler, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Betty Murungi, Ambassador Dennis Ross, and documentary filmmaker Abigail Disney, among others. The students have made this decision based on President Carter's achievements, and we support their right to do so."
Well, given that Tutu - another notorious anti-Semite - received the award, we can't really be surprised, can we? Did anyone speak up then?

Desmond Tutu has also, from time to time, made some very anti-American statements. He'd make a very good regular minister for Barack Obama.

Shavu'a Tov!
The list of people who got the award is SCARY!
MOST are people who have been undermining Israel for decades.
I guess for galut lovers that's not such a big deal....
