Jimmy Carter talked with al-Jazeera TV about criticism for his new book Monday— saying — "most of the condemnations of my book came from Jewish-American organizations which think that I believe there is racial segregation inside Israel." Many people have criticized Mr. Carter for the use of the word "apartheid" in the title with its obvious implications.
But a group of 14 Jewish advisers to the Carter Center resigned last week because they said the book — among other things —condones violence against Israel. Longtime Carter adviser Ken Stein resigned earlier — calling the book historically inaccurate and slanted.
And former Ambassador Dennis Ross criticized Carter for using some of his maps without permission, and misrepresenting Clinton administration Mideast policy.
