Historian Kenneth Stein has resigned from the Carter Center over the former president's new book which, he charges, is "replete with factual errors, copied materials not cited, superficialities, glaring omissions, and simply invented segments."
Jimmy Carter's new book is being widely denounced by critics from across the political spectrum—including some who in the past had worked with or for Carter. Here is a roundup of some of that criticism.
One day Carter bashes Israel because he believes the Jewish state did not live up to its Camp David obligations. The next day—literally—he says "not a word" of the treaty has been violated.
It is wrong to treat a partisan activist as a credible and objective expert. Yet Time turned to Jimmy Carter for its book on the Middle East.
Former President Carter is doing interviews to promote his egregiously biased new book which attempts to rewrite Middle East history. For him, Arab parties are blameless and Israel is almost entirely at fault.
NPR Host Terry Gross indulges Jimmy Carter's numerous false assertions, including the bizarre claim Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon never negotiated with the PA's Mahmoud Abbas.
Jimmy Carter's latest newspaper commentary in the Washington Post features repeated errors of fact. Only Carter's "celebrity" status as an ex-president can account for their publication.
When it comes to Arab-Israeli affairs, is former U.S. President Jimmy Carter a) uninformed, b) misinformed, or c) blinded by an anti-Israel animus? His USA Today Op-Ed, "Israel's new plan: A land grab" (May 16 print edition) makes a strong case for "all of the above."
An Op-Ed by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter which appeared in newspapers around the world in the last few days includes serious factual errors about Israel's security barrier and U.N. Resolution 242.
Hamas (Islamic Resistance Movement) is considered a terrorist organization by much of the non-Arab international community including Israel, the U.S. and the European Union. But following the group's overwhelming victory in Palestinian elections, some journalists and politicians like former U.S. President Jimmy Carter now insist Hamas deserves to be recognized and legitimized. Given such trends, it is important to recall key facts about Hamas.
