I want to bring the review of Carter's book "Palestine: Peace not Apartheid" in the Book Review section of the New York Times last week. (NYT)

They echo my earlier post, that Carter does do a good job of discussing some of the lesser-mentioned issues in the relationship between Palestine and Israel, but alas he does not offer critique or comment to the Palestinian statements against Israel that he quotes at length. There is just not enough critique of Palestinian statements and actions in the book, whereas criticism of Israel abounds. This is the downfall of Carter's book. In an attempt to bring balance to the debate in the United States, he has brought yet another biased account.
