The Games Zionists Play

"In a move that calls back to the attempt by Texas cattlemen to sue Oprah Winfrey for 'defamation of beef', an Israeli lawyer has filed a class-action lawsuit against former President Jimmy Carter, seeking $5 million in damages because his book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid allegedly defamed Israel. Attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner insisted that Carter's book violated New York State's Consumer Protection laws by asserting things, largely that Israel was not inherently reasonable and Syria was not inherently unreasonable, that 'even a child' knows is untrue. The suit went on to condemn Carter, saying he had an 'agenda of anti-Israel propaganda' and condemned publisher Simon & Schuster for advertising the book as a work of non-fiction."
