Why Cardozo Law School Honoring Jimmy Carter Is A Shame and Embarrasment

There is a new site: Shame on Cardozo for Honoring Jimmy Carter!
A Message To Cardozo Alumni

On Wednesday, April 10, 2013, Jimmy Carter will be honored at the Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School, part of Yeshiva University, to receive the International Advocate for Peace Award from the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution.

Jimmy Carter has an ignominious history of anti-Israel bigotry. He is responsible for helping to mainstream the antisemitic notion that Israel is an apartheid state with his provocatively titled book “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid”, the publication of which prompted mass resignations from the Carter Center. He has met numerous times with leaders of the terror group Hamas whitewashing their genocidal goals and undermining US efforts to isolate Hamas. And Carter’s record of slandering Israel is so voluminous that both CAMERA and Alan Dershowitz have written books refuting his lies.
Read the whole thing -- including what action you can take.

Speaking of Jimmy Carter, lies and books -- here is an article written 6 years ago by Kenneth Stein, who was the Carter Center's first permanent executive director, between 1983 and 1986, and the center's Middle East fellow.

Stein broke off the association in December 2006 when he resigned over the inaccuracies in Carter's book "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid" and its message.
