Back in 2006, when both Jimmy Carter’s Palestine: Peace not Apartheid and Walt & Mearsheimer’s The Israel Lobby were published, ADL head Abe Foxman led the charge to have Carter excluded – as far as might be possible – from the public discourse. It was a craven attack. Since then, events have more and more proven Carter right, Foxman wrong. Carter never had to make excuses. Perhaps a statement by Foxman last week on a related issue, over which Foxam begs to be excused, is the closest he will come to apologizing to Carter:
Survivors of the Holocaust are entitled to feelings that are irrational. Their anguish entitles them to positions that others would categorize as irrational or bigoted.
