    He goes FAR beyond that. His entire book is one long polemic aimed at creating sympathy for Arabs, which is certainly understandable considering Arabs give him so much money to represent their point of view.

    While he may not cross the line into the sort of naked antisemitism we see in these forums so continually, neither is he at all fair. He is extremely biased on the issue.

    Perhaps the extreme bias and intellectual dishonesty on the Israeli side causes him to overcompensate. I can't peer into his psychology.

    Taking a biased view on a political issue doesn't mean the same thing as anti-semite. Does it make Republicans racist when they take a biased view that is against Obama? No. Nor does it mean that Carter hates jews.

    I didn't say it did.

    He is biased because he is satisfying the needs of those who have provided him so much money over the years. If you think that is an honorable thing worthy of trust, that is your business. Im my world, it isn't.

    You had my agreement until the statement that Obama has any morals. Sexual adventures are not the only indicators of morals.

    For that matter, I think that both Carter and Bush were men of high character and morals. Both were dumb as a box of rocks.

    I should not have thrown the Obama thing in there, I did not intend to derail a good thread.

    I do think overall he was sincere and of good motives. However, he was extremely naive and thus a very weak and ineffectual president.

    I would tend to believe/trust fact statements he made, but never his analysis of what to do or not do.
