Jimmy Carter Defends Controversial Book at Emory University

ATLANTA (Fox News.com) — Former President Jimmy Carter made a stop on Thursday at the Atlanta university to respond to criticism of his book about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

More than 600 Emory University students and staff attended his lecture about the book titled, "Palestine Peace Not Apartheid."

Critics allege the book contains inaccuracies and distorts history to shape the reader's opinion to one side of the issue. Carter has defended the book, saying he didn't mean to offend anyone.
