    meaning, all these American officials were consistently advocating a peaceful diplomatic resolution or dialogue even with adversaries to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Those critical of President Carter within Yeshiva University and Prof. Dershowitz are convinced they're representatives of the Jewish ethos concerning what's best for Israel. Really? Where was their stance when U.S. President Carter mediated the difficult Camp David Peace agreement between Israel and Egypt? Did they also negate that initiative? Where were they almost 2 decades ago when the right-wing negative incitements against Labour's peaceful overtures towards the Palestinians ended in PM Rabin's murder? We can go on and on. But using U.S. President Jimmy Carter, a good friend of Israel and the Jewish people, as a whipping boy is morally disgraceful and we've had enough!
