    To My Fellow Jews South of the 49th: Accept this man's apology on one condition, he agrees to debate his book, Palestine: Peace not Apartheid, against Alan Dershowitz (AD). Carter, was reproached by AD for his title, to which Carter retorted that the purpose of the title is to spur debate. Interestingly Carter has vehemently refused to debate Mr. AD on the topic, once even leaving a conference where the two were set to speak, AD following Carter, to ensure that no form of debate ensued. Dershowitz in his book, "the case against Israel's Enemies" devotes his first chapter to scrutizing Carter's statements, actions and "charitable" institutions. The Appendix of the book is an assault on the factual mistakes found in Carter's Palestine: Peace not Apartheid. So If you want to make amens, how about a simple debate, and if you are proven wrong, you will issue corrections to your works and condemns the false information written, perhaps even offer a reason as to why
