Jimmy Carter’s reputation as one of the most consistent supporters of Israel’s terrorist opponents remains intact with the publication of his “Support the Palestinian unity government” op-ed in The Washington Post.
In his 2006 book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid Carter cemented his place in history as one of the most vicious critics of Israeli policy. He has been one leading voices in support of the formation of an Islamic state in the Land of Israel since the 1970s.
