Did you catch Jimmy Carter on the Newshour last night?

The man really is one of the finest statesman of our time. He's got a new book out called "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid." which is sure to cause some controversy among knee jerk Israeli supporters. Go read the interview and watch as Carter handles all the pro-Israeli conventional wisdom Judy Woodruff throws at him, backing his points with facts and the clear implication that the media has been completely biased in it's coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Carter also points to some strategies that could move the peace process forward, and notes that Iraq and the Israeli/Palestinian issues are inextricably linked.

I'm sure Carter will be on many other venues as he promotes his book. If you have a chance to catch him, do it. He really has a handle on the situation and hopefully can help set the stage for a post Bush peace process.
