14 Carter Center advisors resign over Middle East bookBreaking News
In a letter to Carter, the members of the Board of Councilors wrote that the former president had "clearly abandoned your historic role of broker, in favor of becoming an advocate for one side."
"I wish the Carter Center continued success, but they they also have to traffic in truth and fact," said developer Steve Berman, one of the 14.
Carter's latest book, "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid," has drawn fire from Jewish groups because of its pro-Palestinian stance and the blame Carter places on Israel for the ongoing conflict.
Carter Center Executive Director John Hardman said Thursday in a written statement that the board's members "are not engaged in implementing work of the Center."

The board members resigning from the Carter Center over a book written by a man who, while president, walked around turning off lights in the White House in order to conserve energy and who also fought off a swimming rabbit, should not have been surprised that he would side against Israel. For heaven's sake, Israel is populated by Jews and Jimmy Carter is Mel Gibson, albeit sober.
