Tip of the hat to The Forward for posting this–I flipped through Carter’s book while visiting A Capella Books in Atlanta. Just a flip though. Haven’t yet read the entirety.

Watching the video, on the one hand, I’m not excited about his enthusiastic placement of the US in this, almost as a “savior.” On the other, I’m grateful that a leading political figure is taking a strong stand for Palestine, and working to break down the binary that to be for Palestine and peace for Palestinians means you must be against Israel. Quite the contrary, as Carter attests in response to a caller.
