More Carter resignations...

JTA reported that 14 more members of President Carter's staff at the Carter Center have resigned due to the recent book that the former president wrote.
In a letter to Carter obtained by JTA, the group wrote Thursday that he had abandoned his role as peace broker in favor of malicious partisan advocacy, portraying the conflict as a “purely one-sided affair” which Israel bears full responsibility for resolving.

“This is not the Carter Center or the Jimmy Carter we came to respect and support,” the letter said.

“Therefore it is with sadness and regret that we hereby tender our resignation from the Board of Councilors of the Carter Center effective immediately.”
The Forward has full text of the letter.

Here is a JTA op-ed by Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, a former student of Carter's while attending Emory University. She believes that Carter is now practicing reverse racism.
