The Restrictions Remain: Life Under Prohibition in Palestine

An Honest Man Refutes Propaganda: Carter's Inconvenient Truths

received a lot of grief during his term in office, most of it undeserved.

Jimmy Carter on Palestinians Under Occupation
"I have spent a lot of time in Palestine in recent years.
The Palestinians have had their own land, first of all,
occupied and then confiscated and then colonized.
Former President Jimmy Carter's new book, Palestine Peace Not Apartheid,
provoked an uproar even before its publication. The reason for the controversy
was the book's title more than its content, for it seemed to suggest that the
avatar of democracy in the Middle East may be on its way to creating a political
order that resembles South Africa's apartheid model of discrimination and repression,
albeit on ethnic-religious rather than racial grounds.
Truth at last, while breaking a U.S. taboo of criticizing Israel
Americans owe a debt to former President Jimmy Carter for speaking long
hidden but vital truths. His book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid breaks
the taboo barring criticism in the United States of Israel's discriminatory
treatment of Palestinians.
Last Word: Jimmy Carter Revisiting 'Apartheid'
Former president Jimmy Carter has long been regard-ed as an
elder statesman, using his political muscle to address
issues like democracy and human rights. But he's also been a
prolific author. Since leaving office in January 1981, he
has written 23 books, on subjects ranging from American
moral values to his childhood on a Georgia farm.
You'll get an earful if you oppose Israel
I think I know what the messages on Jimmy Carter's voice mail sound like.

Apartheid. And I bet he's getting an earful.
Jimmy Carter: Israel's 'apartheid' policies worse than South Africa's

Words Even an Ex-President Can't Say in America: The Media Lynching of Jimmy Carter
It seems Israel's "supporters" have conscripted me in their lynching of Jimmy
Carter. Count me out. True, the historical part of Carter's book, Palestine
Peace Not Apartheid, contains errors in that it repeats standard Israeli propaganda.
However, Carter's analysis of the impasse in the "peace process" as well as his
description of Israeli policy in the West Bank is accurate - and, frankly,
that's all that matters.

Former President Carter: US and Israel Stand Alone

Israel's new plan: A land grab
New Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has announced that Israel will take unilateral
steps to establish its own geographical boundaries during the next four years
of his administration. His plan, as described during the recent Israeli
election and the formation of a new governing coalition, would take about
half of the Palestinian West Bank and encapsulate the urban areas within
a huge concrete wall and the more rural parts of Palestine within a high
fence. The barrier is not located on the internationally recognized boundary
between Israel and Palestine, but entirely within and deeply penetrating the
Jimmy Carter: Punishing the innocent is a crime
Innocent Palestinian people are being treated like animals, with the presumption
that they are guilty of some crime. Because they voted for candidates who are
members of Hamas, the United States government has become the driving force behind
an apparently effective scheme of depriving the general public of income, access
to the outside world and the necessities of life.
Israel's colonisation of Palestine blocking peace, says Jimmy Carter
The former US president Jimmy Carter has described Israel's "colonisation of
Palestine" through expanding Jewish settlements as the single greatest obstacle
to a resolution of the conflict.
Jimmy Carter has criticised Israel, but to accuse him of anti-semitism is so outrageous as to be laughable
Responses to Jimmy Carter's bestselling book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid have
varied between indifference and knee-jerk accusations of anti-semitism. Writing
in the Los Angeles Times, Carter said: "For the last 30 years, I have witnessed
and experienced the severe restraints on any free and balanced discussion of the
Apartheid in the Holy Land
In our struggle against apartheid, the great supporters were Jewish people.
They almost instinctively had to be on the side of the disenfranchised, of
the voiceless ones, fighting injustice, oppression and evil. I have continued
to feel strongly with the Jews. I am patron of a Holocaust centre in South
Africa. I believe Israel has a right to secure borders.
