01 HER VIE‘i ,

Correcting Carter from page 29

Are you

a Jewish resident of Metropolitan Detroit?

against Jews, particularly when
he has emphatically asserted in
numerous interviews that "every-
thing in the book is accurate,"
marks a significant shift in his
views. Angrily, Carter crossed a
line. He is endorsing the killing
of Israelis. That is overtly anti-
Semitic. If that is not what he
intended, then he should not have
included such a sentence in his
book.
I wrote in my resignation letter
from the Carter Center that those
in "academic settings and those
in positions of influence must
teach and not preach!' If Carter is
preaching violence and the kill-
ing of Israelis until some point in
the future, then he must be sanc-
tioned.

The Israeli use of cluster
bombs against civilians in the
summer 2006 war in Lebanon
was illegal and unjust.

The Answer

As Michigan State University
student Daniel Kuhn stated
in a letter last week to the
Lansing State News, Israel
fired near civilians because
the Hezbollah rocket launch
crews, who were shooting
rockets across the border at
Israeli civilians, were using
the Lebanese as human
shields. The launchers were
found built into apartment
buildings, houses and garag-
es. The Hezbollah wartime
practices of using human
shields and the targeting of
civilians by missile fire are-
both illegal and immoral.
